I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. The decor is cozy. The service was fantastic. The food was outstanding. The prices were very reasonable. I had the beet salad..delicious and the house specialty pork ossobucco wonderful.. My wife has the lasagna and it was superior. Seems like a family run business and the feel was very warm and friendly. We LOVED this place. They have outside dining but the weather was not cooperating.

After a surf on La Jolla shore we found this restaurant with friendly service and great food; try the pizza and pasta.

Very good Italian food. Lots of choices on the menu, something for everyone. All servers speak a little Italian to you. It is cozy. You may need a reservation (we made one so we were seated right away). They also have outdoor seating which I'm sure is very nice when it is warm. We sat inside, we visited the coldest week of the winter!

Had a great dinner for 2 teens, 2 adults earlier this week. It was full inside, so we agreed to sit outside under the heater. One of the waters got spilled, red dipping sauce for bread also got spilled- our error, not staff - and it was still a great meal. The staff were friendly, dealt with our spills nicely, food was excellent. Would totally go back.

I wanted to like this place. The thing is, the food is not very good, even when you are starving. It’s like homemade, but run of the mill... not even super-tasty grandma-level homemade. For a $15+ entree, I’d rather go elsewhere. We had the ok cheese ravioli and bland hamburger lasagne. Meh.
