Outside seating on coast highway was a bit too noisy for us, so we took a nice view table inside. Overall the food was superb, and the service excellent.

Arrived earlier than our reservations however they were able to accommodate us within 10 mins. Food and service was great! Danielle was our server and she was very efficient and fun. Mixed fish dish was very good however the Sea Bass was a little to buttery tasting. Outstanding Tiramisu for desert!!

Tab;e outside by the window with beautiful view. Heaters were on in case we got chilled. Servers brought fresh glasses of tea before we had to ask. Brought a birthday dessert without being prompted. Lovely lunch!

We had a great experience here! Food was delicious and portions are very large. Service was great and very prompt. Food options are a little shellfish heavy but they are willing to make substitutions.The patio was very comfortable even for March because of the heaters.

Prices outrageous, service not great, charges for soft drinks were price gouging, Special for the evening over $40 for a small piece of fish on mashed potatoes. Will never retunr.

We planned our drive home from San Diego, so we could stop and have lunch here. We had dinner here two weeks ago, and returned for the Seafood Risotto. Delicious!

The review would have been 5-stars all around, except service in the bar was not that great. The bartenders seemed irritated when my friend and I ordered a glass of wine and dirty martini, respectively. We came about an hour and a half early to our reservation and spent that time in the bar planning to each have two or three drinks and a couple of appetizers before closing out and heading to our table. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Not once were we asked if we would like to see a menu for ordering an appetizer, or even a second drink even though there were servers running all around us tending to other parties. I've worked in the service industry for many years... and making your customers feel unwelcome is not a way to get them to come back. I could understand maybe if we had been rude... but both having worked in the service industry we are overly understanding of busy times and overworked servers... thank goodness our food and the server for our table (Andrea I think his name was?) was over the moon incredible.

My husband and I dined here for date night and we were very impressed with the impeccable service we received. I ordered the lasagna which is very delicious (sauce was perfect and not too much) and my husband ordered the halibut special. When our entrees arrived, not two minutes later, the manager came to our table to ask if we were satisfied with our meals. My husband proceeded to reveal that his fish was slightly overdone and the manager agreed and said he had seen that from where he was originally standing and that is why he came over! He not only took the dish to replace it with an apology but he brought my husband a second glass of wine. The new entree came at the speed of light and my husband was very happy with it. We were extremely impressed and felt right at home as the remainder of the staff were just as welcoming.
The food is fresh and ocean views beautiful. We highly recommend this restaurant if you want a true Italian flavor and a wonderful experience.

Beautifil sunset view, excellent meat and seafood, wine was lovely. The very noisy atmosphere made conversation difficult and the fact that straightforward items like rice and a baked potato were not tasty diminished our overall enjoyment.

Made reservations in advance for Valentines Day and ended up on the heated patio. I’ve eaten there before and loved it. The food was substandard. I wouldn’t recommend going on any busy holidays.

We have a group of 8 and celebrated my birthday the staff is very attentive and very helpful. The food is great as usual we normally come here on Restaurant week and when we posted our experienced in FB our friends commented and intrigued with the place and since we were together in Italy during our military time we got connected with the food. The place has a nice view of the ocean!!!

Great service and yummy food. We were there for lunch for over two hours and never felt rushed out. Being outside, you can hear the traffic, especially when loud motorcycles go by. But otherwise I love this place.
