Pastas way oversauced. This Italian restaurant should learn from Italian cooks!
The food is always great and the service is super!
The Service, Drink,Food was Great!
Be sure to ask for the Waiter, Nobu the fellow with the unique Mustache!
I had a party of 5 and celebrated a birthday for my 82 year old step dad. We all loved our food and dessert. It was a little noisy due to being so close to the kitchen but it was fine.
Great food great service (EVA waitress) could not be better. We ordered the Jambalaya and salmon in dill sauce. Fantastic!
In the past, we have always liked the food. However, my friend and I shared the Bowtie pasta with chicken but found it was pretty oily (greasy). That was the first time I found it to be that way. Also, the caesar salad had no garlic/lemon flavor and was just bland. Also my friend's husband who had meatballs and spaghetti said the meatballs were dry and overcooked. So sorry to tell you this, but we have always enjoyed the food in the past and hope it was just a one-time occurrence.
One of our favorites...and we eat a lot of good food and great places. We've been there a number of times and NEVER disappointed. The noise is just the right amount of "successful place and energy" but not annoying. Food is fantastic. Balances nice portions with flavor. Love the butternut squash ravioli and the seafood pasta (with light olive oil sauce). Wine selections are great about appropriately priced.
There is no pretense here...just really great tasting food and good atmosphere for any day of the week.
Service was very good and the food was just above expectations.
Great food. Excellent service!
Nice atmosphere and good service. I did request a table in a quieter area which I know can be hard accommodate, but we had other tables with 4 or more all around so it was harder to hear friends across the table. We still had a nice evening!
Food and Service Never Disappoint !! A bit on the noisy side, but still work coming to
The location to my office is great and the food never disappoints. I find the prices reasonable and the wine selection great. Food is always prepared fresh and taste is amazing.
Had their swordfish w/ risotto. Very good, but the swordfish was a little overcooked, and even though the menu said the risotto had creamy lemon, I would have preferred not to have the lemon flavor in the risotto.
(I didn't notice it on the menu.)
Nice variety on menu.
Always good service and yummy food!
Nice casual Italian dining. Pretty crowded, so reservations are a good idea. Friendly conversations between tables was nice. Bartender served up a bright blue something-or-other, when we asked for a daquiri. That's disturbing. We sent it back and were not charged for it. Food was good and portions generous. Lamb shank was great. Salmon (slightly overcooked) was way too covered with capers, when the dish was supposed to be Salmon DILL. All-in-all, we would try this place again.
One of our very favorites with great food, reasonable prices, and attentive service.
Food is good but service is just ok. We bought a bottle of wine and the server never came by to refill our glasses. I feel the good is a bit over priced for pasta dishes.
Everything was tasty and wonderful. Just a little disappointed that Birthday was not celebrated with something special.
We have been going to this restaurant for years even before the name change.
I love this restaurant. The food is amazing, the service is prompt and courteous. The prices fit the food.
The menu changed with the New Year; our favorite pear and strawberry salad is now entrée size only. Our waiter brought the wrong salad, but the error was quickly corrected. The linguine was overcooked and was not adequately drained; the meatballs, however, were great. The chocolate lava cake is every bit as good as in the past. This remains one of the noisiest restaurants in the area on Saturday nights, so go for the food, not the conversation.
It's a solid Italian restaurant that has survived the San Ramon restaurant scene slaughter!! Always busy and the food is very good. Neighborhood gem!!
There was a hair under my salmon. I told the server. She took it and brought me a new dish. Not one word from a manager, nor an apology. An acknowledgment in this type of situation in a restaurant is at the very least customary. We felt perhaps hair in the dishes is not a big deal to this restaurant as maybe it happens often.
We went on New years Eve and despite it being quiet busy we didn't have to wait long for our food, which was very nicely prepared. Also though they closed at 8.30 they were not in a hurry for us to leave even after 9pm
New year eve, early in the evening.
We visited on New Year's Eve. We had a lovely table, great service and the food was delicious. Can't wait to go again and try a different dish.
Food is always delicious! Service is hit and miss...not consistent. Everyone is very nice, but they miss opportunities with the customers because they are not always attentive. Food was deeeeee-lish!!
We have had lunch and dinner here many times and the food is always excellent...And the service is outstanding!!
Always consistent, always delicious quality food. Service was excellent tonigjt
Excellent food and staff, lovey ambiance, enjoyed it very much
Great neighborhood place. Very good food. Early lunch on Christmas Eve and the restaurant was quiet.
Overall, the food and service was great. I understand due to holidays, there were more tables made available. It was a bit ackward for two to sit on a bench seat at round table.
Even with a reservation made well in advance we got a table right next to where they bring out food and stack plates. Reviews online made this place look very appealing for a nice date but I honestly was embarrassed when showing up.
Yes, the food was good but the whole experience felt like I was dining in at a "quick bite" kind of place.
Ford very good. Service was excellent despite being very busy. Would definitely do a repeat.
My wife and I have eaten here for many many years. The food quality has been consistent over the years and always good. The wait staff is friendly and welcoming. We would recommend this restaurant highly!
Our company luncheon was great and the food overall was delicious. However, one of my employees informed the waiter that they could not have any type of dairy products. But when he brought the meatball sandwich it had melted cheese on it. My employee did not realize it had the cheese until he ate nearly half the sandwich. He was then ill for the rest of the day. Make sure you verify your waiter has made any food allergies clear to the chef before you eat it.
Our server was great, they seated us timely, we had great food. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. They were serving some large holiday parties and everyone was happy.
Really like this restaurant a lot . It was great food and great service ! So noisy though ...couldn’t have a decent conversation .
Great experience as usual
Too noisy. We had to shout across the table. And the service was very slow this time. We have had much better service in the past.
