We had great meals and excellent service. We enjoyed our outing. The restaurant is very small and can be a bit noisy, but was still a great choice for a special occasion. It's a BYOB restaurant, so bring some wine to enhance your meal.

The food was outstanding and delicious, the chicken/crabmeat special was a real hit with the table. And, as usual the Limoncello cake was the perfect finish. Joey, was a terrific and attentive server.

BYOB is always nice.

Mine was slightly over cooked so chicken was tough. Salmon was very dry. Service was good, polite, but slow. I assume it was the result of small kitchen and full crowd. I don’t think it was wait service issue. Outside was very loud. Inside seemed quieter and more elegant. Definitely overrated on open table based on my experience.

The restaurant was busy and the host accidentally marked me as a no-show, so I got what I found to be a condescending and scolding message from Open Table about how I “adversely affected” a local business. After having an enjoyable evening and leaving a generous tip to my waiter, I was extremely troubled by the notion of a tech company in San Francisco inaccurately flagging me as a person who didn’t care about businesses in his local community. It’s also my understanding that the business pays a small fortune to Open Table for this service. In the future, I will not book this restaurant through Open Table.

They had several large groups so service was slow. We split a beet salad which was different and fresh. All in all our meals were ok. Ciao pepe was over cooked and my canelloni was not hot . good but it could have been better. May come back and give them another try. Bus boy was very good.

Ample time was given to us to greet our guests and peruse the menu and specials. Water glasses were filled and bread brought to the table. The pace of the meal was leisurely and gave us time to eat and converse. The food as always was delicious, fresh and well portioned. One of our friends meal was not to her liking and was quickly and graciously replaced. We will continue to dine here as often as possible

And the worst part was that there was a group of 6 (seated indoors, not in the covered outdoor area) acting like they were at a tailgate party and not a nice, quiet restaurant. Their noise level and foul language was beyond obnoxious and the restaurant staff appeared to do nothing to stop it. Overall, a terrible experience at a restaurant we have really enjoyed in the past.
