Always a pleasant experience dining here. Chicken Curry salad is a luncheon favorite. Hamburgers are also excellent. Wide selection of wines.

Met my nieces and their moms for last minute Sunday lunch & were given wonderful table (for 5) out front and the food was delicious as expected. They loved it & we will definitely be returning 😊

My wife and I created a stop off here on the way from San Francisco to LA to come to this restaurant. It has always been one of our favorites and never disappoints. To me it seems like the perfect restaurant: consistently good food, somewhat ambitious but totally unpretentious; wonderfully efficient and friendly but unobtrusive service, fantastic and very reasonably priced wine list; very pleasant decor and style, pretty good value.

We sat outside to have a slightly more quiet, intimate evening and it was all we'd hoped for. The staff teamed up to bring us whatever we needed quickly and efficiently. We always come here for the unique and creative pizza selections. The crust is light and airy, consistently delicious. The Central Coast wine selection is off the charts and you can browse to your heart's content. They may be tired of any Sideways references but for us it reminds us a favorite film we can still enjoy over a bottle of Andrew Murray (any Andrew Murray!)

First we were running late for our reservation. We called he restaurant and the hostess was very accommodating and called us back to let us know it was not a problem.
My wife and I shared the beets and burrata salad. We also shared the pork chop from the specials and everything was delicious. The wine list is extensive and I highly recommend the bread.
Good service and friendly staff.

This was our first time at this restaurant and we will definitely be back. I had the ravioli which, upon request, they were able to lighten up for me. The pizza that we shared was also very good - it was the special of the day which was an Italian beef pizza with spicy sweet peppers. Wine list is very good and service was prompt and attentive without feeling rushed. There were a lot of families there the night we were there so it is also a kid friendly restaurant.

Service was terrible. Been there many times but our waiter Benjamin was just not on top of things.

They make their own pasta and each time I have had their different types of ravioli it is delicious! It can be noisy, so be aware of that. Nice variety of wines also.
