We had a delicious dinner here. Unlike some places it was relatively quiet so we didn't have to shout for our tablemates to hear.Primarily younger people there but they weren't loud yet seemed to be having a good time. We had very attentive service, and a personable but non-intrusive waiter. Our meals we're terrific. I had the Veal Saltimboca and... More

There are so many true Italian choices on this menu that it's difficult to make a bad decision. The sauce tasted fresh, and the pasta was great. Service was fast and courteous. On a Wednesday night it was crowded, but there was no wait.

This has become our go to place for good Italian food in Redwood City. We typically go on a Monday night which is a little quieter so we don't need reservations. Food has consistently been excellent. Dishes we have had include Ravioli, Oso Buco, Veal a couple different ways, and several pasta dishes. Service is very attentive but not overwhelming.

We visited here for a pre gig drink. Sat at the bar and whilst my three companions enjoyed a glass of wine, I sampled a very nice craft beer. There was a happy atmosphere and people seemed to be enjoying their meals but we didn't have time for anything more.

A very trendy pizzeria with professional staff, cloth napkin, fancy small dishes, draft beer and other local bottle beers. I had the Lagunitas little sumpin beer, wood fire pizza oven and contemporary setting located on redwood city's rest tyrant rows. Good for business and family gatherings

I've tried to find something to love here, but after 3 or 4 visits, I gave up. This place is usually busy but feels cramped. (I think they moved some tables out for the picture.) In order to have as much floor space as possible(?) the hostess stand is so close to the door that it's awkward. I felt like... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The atmosphere was very encouraging to this diner. We were seated at a nice table and our waiter was quick to give us the specialties of the evening. We ordered an appetizer, soup, salad, and an entree. That's where the service ended. I received my salad first. My husband received his soup... More

I have been coming to this place for a couple years and always have an excellent meal here. The papardelle con cinghiale is a particular favorite as an entree, but I have had an excellent risotto and osso buco as well. I don't think there is any bad choice on the menu. The complimentary bread served at the beginning of... More
