I order the capellini frequently. This time it looked like someone in the kitchen broke the noodles in half before throwing them into the pot. This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant. And then somebody forgot to screw the top on the bottle of hot pepper flakes. My wife dumped the entire container on her entree. The waiter got another entree very quickly and we had an uneventful dinner after that.

I was very pleased with the service and ambiance. The food was very tasty as well. It was a cold night when we dined, so we chose to sit inside. One problem we had was the temperature was chilly inside, and the servers kept leaving the doors open when they walked through them. Other than that it was a great experience.

Great ambience, attractive renovation, fun atmosphere, good seating, food is tasty. Our waiter Steve was personable and attentive. Wine list for Chardonnay lover’s is limited.

Reasonable priced and great service. Disappointing sauce on the chicken parm.

The lasagna was wonderful. Went to Italy in September and this was the closet to the lasagna I had there!

I've only refused to tip the waiter on two occasions, and this dining experience was one of them. The bus boy did a better job of taking our check and bringing our food than the actual waiter. While we did catch the waiter chatting it up with other customers for well over 15 min at one point, we only ever talked to him twice. Once to tell him we needed more time and the second to give him our orders.

I've been to this restaurant once before and the service was awesome, but this guy was just a horrible waiter. I won't be coming back.

Food and service were excellent. The meals are very creative, prepared with great skill and very reasonably priced. One of our favorites.

Lovely, near the beach in Carlsbad. This was a last minute meeting place with a friend. We sat on a sunny terrace with the ocean breeze blowing across (the well-screened parking lot). Delightful.
