Excellent from start to finish & it’s BYOB!
The staff were very personable; they all have great personalities, kept coming over to ensure we were taken care of and offered suggestions.
The food was delicious!! We had the salmon risotto and seafood pasta along with 2 appetizers. Everything was filling and delectable.

We’ve not been for quite a long time even though we live around the corner and we very much enjoyed our return and the new owners. The salmon was very well prepared and the pasta was fresh. I’d like to see more specials as the menu hasn’t changed in 15 years, but we had a great meal and caught up with neighbors.

We were seated promptly. The service was great as was the food. The qty served was excellent. Seating a little close... it’s a small space.

Another great meal! Thanks for exceeding expectations again. The chicken parm (which is not on the menu but can be requested) was the absolute best-ever!

As an Italian who grew up eating wonderful homemade food, I can attest that I love this place! Recently my family needed to get a bite prior to a show at the Academy of Music. La Baia is about a 10-minute walk away, and was very uncrowded on a Sunday night at 5:00, so were in and out in no time. We had a fantastic meal and great service.

I remember eating here frequently about 12 years ago but eventually we moved out of the city so we stopped going. It's still a gem! We will make this a regular pre-show location for wonderful Italian food!
