We stopped here to eat on our first night in La Jolla. It's unassuming from the storefront however when you walk through the doors you are greeted like you are family and treated that way for the duration of your visit. The food was delicious and the portions were large. The service was great, my daughter ordered her meal and thought it was an alfredo sauce but she read the menu wrong. Even though it was her fault the staff was quick to replace her meal with the sauce that she wanted. And at no extra charge. Everyone was very accommodating and the owner met with us at the end of our meal to talk with us a bit. They even brought us a complimentary tiramisu that rivaled the tiramisu we ate in Italy.

We had a great dinner at this understated restaurant.. Service was impeccable and the food was great. It is reminiscent of east coast Italian restaurants. Let's face it. Italian is best in Philadelphia, NYC and the east coast, in general. Except, maybe, Italy...

If you need to treat yourself this is the place. I bring my husband here once a month for a legit, Italian treat.
