We picked this restaurant from recommendations by our concierge at the Kimpton Canary. This is a lovely, spacious restaurant. The service was wonderful with an ample selection of wines and artisinal italian beers. I had the Carpaccio de Bue followed by the scallopine con carciofi in a lemon sauce. Both were amazing. On par with what i experienced while in... More

Small, elegant Italian bistro in downtown SB. Parking difficult, but worth finding this gem. Great pasta dishes, service, and extensive wine list.

The service is outstanding. There were six of us. Two of us had the Dover sole with spinach and a Caesar salad and all was fabulous.... More

Both their fine dining and pizzeria were outstanding. Fine dining restaurant was wonderful. Started with the incredible eggplant soufflé which is not to miss. The homemade pasta was fabulous. Spinach and cheese tortellini was our favorite. Loup de mer sea bass entree was cooked to perfection. The beef tenderloin was also amazing. The service was top notch and I highly... More

Wonderful Italian. Great service, small cozy restaurant. Food was outstanding. Easy to get to and find. Pasta was rich and tasty. I ordered lamb chops in a basalmic reduction which were cooked to my liking perfectly.

Great atmosphere and excellent food. I really appreciated that we weren't rushed though our meal. We had the seafood salad appetizer and it was delicious. We had the Pappardelle al Sugo, and the Petti de Pollo. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce was nice. The chicken was moist and very tasty. Both meals were outstanding. I don't usually...

We were attending a conference nearby and had one hour for dinner—could we dare to have a nice meal in that time with a little advance preparation, making reservations at the least, but also looking at the menu in advance and ordering uncomplicated preparations? The restaurant came through for us in flying colors! The table was ready, the food came... More
