Unfortunately one of the worst restaurants I have been to. The pasta was really an embarrassment, not fresh and felt like it was made from a supermarket pack and the day before. Pizza was ok but not more than that. And on top of everything...More

Located on Murphy Street in downtown Sunnyvale. They have great options including vegetarian options and the portion sizes are generous. Wine options too but we did not have any. Our favorite was the sautéed mushrooms as an appetizer.

I believe 3 visits make this a fair review. Not once was I impressed with their service. Wrong dish twice, slow service, distracted servers. The meals were nothing spectacular, seemed very " out of the jar' and not fresh. You must visit more authentic Italian...More

This is a place we usually go during our business trips. Food is good and prices are fine too. Pizza is very good. Service is good but it depends on the day. It's not a good suggestion to be seated at the back near the...More

Compliments to the waiter, he smiled and had sense of humor. Atmosphere was great, can't beat a summer outdoor seating. Please order anything but the eggplant, it came with salad and pasta which were fine. The eggplant itself was big, probably cooked to death and...More
