The wait staff was great and the food beyond my expectations. I've eaten here before for special occasions and never been disappointed. This time they out did themselves. Clearly I will be returning
Italian food is not usually our first choice, but this restaurant was a cut above the normal. Food was well prepared and the menu offered interesting interpretations of standard fare. We were very pleased.
Great dinner, some of the best service in the entire county. It's a little pricey, but worth it if you're looking for something special. We spent $70 on a an appetizer, dinner, and dessert for two and were absolutely stuffed afterward. Incredible place. Our server, Tim, was awesome.
One note is that the back patio gets pretty cold at night.
Reservations were easily made. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the back patio seating, we were very comfortable and warm thanks to plenty of (optional) outdoor heaters. Service was excellent. Our waiter's knowledge of the menu really helped us to make the best selections. The dishes came out in good time and we found the meal to be very satisfying. We sa ores every bite. It was a very romantic end for my girlfriend's birthday. Another big thank you to the staff and we will be back to try more off the menu.
Amazing service, amazing food! First time in SLO with my boyfriend and we definitely don't regret going here.
Went for my husband's birthday and were extremely happy with the food and our waiters. They were very entertaining, keeping us laughing and providing exceptional service. All of us were glad to experience this gem of a restaurant. Oh, and the dessert was to die for. The birthday boy got a complementary molton lava chocolate cake with raspberry sauce ( not called that, but forgot the name). A cake by any other name is just as good. Gotta try this and we will be back.
I enjoyed the outdoor patio. The Service was great and the food fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning soon
It would be hard to ask for more from a restaurant. The service was excellent and friendly and the food was terrific. The polenta secondi was incredible and trout main the best I have experienced in recent memory. Considering the service and the quality of the food, the pricing is acceptable.
my wife thought it was the best Italian food she has had outside of Italy.
Driving south on 101 searching for good spots for a late lunch in SLO. Went to Buona Tavola based on reviews. I had the parpadelle and my wife had linguine vongole. Both were spectacular!!
Linguine was very generous with the clams, which along with the sauce, made this dish one of the best we've ever had. Will definitely seek this place out next time we are anywhere in the area.
