The ambiance, the service, the menu, the quality . . . all excellent. And at a decent price. You can always tell a great Italian restaurant by its red sauce and theirs is spectaculary. The leftover spaghetti was even tasty cold the next day. The meatballs had a very good flavor. Not too overpowering. The salads and other meals that... More

Absolutely it is not Italian. The name of the dishes are Italian but they are prepared in mexican way. It could be nice but they are over prices for the quality.

Restaurant has stopped making their wonderful breadsticks. Dropped my rating from a five to a three. Food is wonderful but it was the breadsticks that set it apart from all the other Italian restaurants in town.

Our favorite thing on the menu is the Caprese Piadine, which is basically a cracker-thin pizza crust spread with pesto and piled with roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and romaine lettuce. You fold it in half and eat it like a gigantic taco. Sounds good, huh? It is. We love it. Service is... More

Wonderful food and service at this restaurant in Northgate Mall. Pasta and chicken dishes were excellently prepared. The breadsticks are made in house and are to die for. Our waiter, Ricardo, provided prompt efficient service.

I enjoyed this restaurant, conveniently located off of 101, for a quick dinner with a family that had children. The food was good, but not exceptional. They serve beer, wine, mixed drinks. The garlic rolls are very good. Everyone in my party seemed happy with their food.

This is always our first stop even before we go to the hotel, usually because our rooms are not ready at the hotel and this is close to the hotel.

Nothing special. Not bad but not great. Pizza crust bland and underdone. Pasta nicely done but sauces lacked character. Bland.

This is a great place when shopping at Northgate--or anytime you are in the neighborhood. Every meal has been tasty and the service pleasant.

Some of the dishes here are excellent, some not so. I really like the cobb salad. Also, the spaghetti and meat balls is excellent!
