Halibut was outstanding! Cooked to perfection with a very tasty sauce that did not mask the flavor of the halibut. Will definitely return on my next visit to Carlsbad.

My family ate dinner there the other night. We had a great experience, from the convenient valet parking to the pleasant hostess, great service from our server, Dani, and great food. I had the squid risotto with ink sauce which was delicious. My spouse had the cioppino, which is served in a giant platter and appears to be the restaurant's signature dish. The ahi tuna special and the mixed meat grill were also excellent. They have an outstanding wine list, featuring many Italian wines, well thought-out, with some good values. All in all, a great experience and we will be back soon.

We were at a table inside that just wasn’t good for conversation f. One of our 6 asked if we could be moved and as soon as a table became available, they moved us and we kept the same waiter, Luca. Service was awesome! Table was great for our group! Food was fantastic!

Absolutely a fantastic experience. We had never been to the area, nor had we seen the sun set over the pacific. Exquisite food, and a delightful waiter by the name of Marco who pointed us to the right wine and made the whole time one to remember.

Celebrating my wife's latest art show and just wanted to try the different location-we've been going to the other one in Encinitas for years. A real treat! Great cocktails, dinner and wine plus Jeff spiffed us on dessert. Courtney our server was an angel. She made our first visit here perfect. Also perfect: my steak and my wife's cioppiono.

Outstanding food with a view, what could be better?
Our dinners were excellent. My Aragosta Diavola and wife’s Penne Vodka were outstanding.
We dine out often and too bad we don’t live in the area, because it would be one of my favorite places to dine.
It’s a must try.
In addition we had fabulous service.

We ordered the best (most expensive) filet steaks on the menu and it was pretty disappointing. Both my wife and I came for our anniversary and ordered the Prime Filet, we both felt it was bland tasting and not of a high quality. For a "steak house" we expected MUCH better. Ironically we both felt the steaks we have had at the Italian restaurant Vigiluccu's just down the street was much better. Kinda a bummer for a $300 bill for 2.

We are Regular customers, and We sat outside at the bistro bar tables. The view that comes with these tables are wonderful, but keep in mind they are first come first serve, so we gave up the dinning table instead. It was our anniversary and we chose to try for the first time the seafood tower for 2. It was excellent! The market price was $130, and while we would’ve like to see more jumbo prawns(only 2), rather than more of the smaller shrimp. Ask for warm drawn butter, goes great with the crab legs and lobster tail. Perhaps they could give you a list of what exactly and how many- the seafood tower comes with, it seems that it may change based on food availability. Looking forward to our return.

All was good except the prawns my wife had did not smell good. Might have been spoiled. Waiter tried to salvage them but they ended up making her not feel well.

Waiter cut her meal cost in Half which was appropriate.

Everything else was very good.
