Review were good and we found accurate. This little restaurant is two block off the main street at Cannery Row, easy walk from hotels, and offers a fine dining experience for a truly bargain price. We got there at 5pm for half off the wine...More

We asked our hotel for local, yummy Italian that didn't break the bank and that's exactly what we got. Lovely service, wine and a great, sizable meal for around $20 each. I got the Pesto Chicken dish with a side salad, it was awesome and...More

I ordered some shrimp pasta to go, they prepared it very nicely. It was pretty good, I wouldn't mind dining, looks very nice inside!

Food was good but it could be better. Noodles were cooked great al dente and really fresh but the sauces and rest of the food was a bit lacking the taste. Service was great. Facility needs some updating.

Heard that this was a local favorite. At the time we visited, we were the only people in the restaurant--but who cares: the food and wine were great and so was the service. The ambiance is candlelit and romantic.

The food was great and the waiter super-friendly. All you need for a good restaurant, right? The girl who had her birthday right beside us even got a free dessert - enough said. A good experience, can only recommend.
