My husband and I dined here
My husband and I dined here last week and on the whole enjoyed the experience. The restaurant itself is very attractive and inviting. The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone. My husband really enjoyed his Salsiccia. My chicken dish was too spicy, but the staff took care of it very professionally. The wine list has some good moderately-priced choices. We also tried Cibo for happy hour and it was great. In addition, they feature live jazz--all too rare anymore. The service was a bit spotty--e.g., nobody at the front desk when we arrived and a waiter who was sometimes difficult to find, yet there were not many diners the night we went. The location is right in downtown Monterey – very convenient.

Lovely dinner - wild salmon entree was beautifully done, delicious. The waiter we had was great - a real human being, no nonsense and very attentive.

Good food at reasonable prices with a friendly wait staff. You get it all. Recommended for those special occasions.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner last Saturday night. The Calamari appetizer was very fresh and enjoyed the Salmon with the blood orange sauce with bright flavors. Service was excellent and surprised us with a wonderful birthday dessert complete with a candle. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

Consistently good Italian
Consistently good Italian fare, good service and live music. Artichoke appetizer fabulous -- the roasted artichoke and the balsamic reduction and cream garlic sauces are a tasty combination. Pear tart lacked flavor and the short crust was soggy.
