One of the best dining experiences in San Luis Obispo. Under $15 lunches [try their fresh burgers or Cubano sandwich] - more expensive for dinner. In a 100 year old home on "lower" Marsh St. Mostly Mediterranean-Northern Italian. Excellent wine list. Oso bucco is fork tender - several fish/seafood dishes. Nightly specials. Soup of the day. "Gracious" dining not generally found anymore.

We were hoping to discover a great restaurant off the beaten path. Sadly, for as pricey as it was, we were not impressed with the food, the service, or the value.
Our dishes: lamb chops, pumpkin ravioli, fettuccini, and the shrimp and scallops.
Lamb chops-ok. Well cooked, not much of a portion.
Ravioli-not much flavor, and three or four of the ten were empty
Fettuccine-my friend seemed to enjoy it, but didn't race about it, and didn't finish it
Shrimp and scallops-it's in the appetizer list. My friend loved it. Though the two shrimp were ok, the two scallops were perfectly cooked.
We split a $60 bottle of wine, one of the least expensive on the list. It was good.
Don't know that I need to go back. And if someone asked me, I'd say there are better restaurants downtown for less $.
