Can't get enough of Mollie's turkey meatballs. I CRAVE them and they never let me down. Always delish.

Although, I enjoyed the food, the staff seemed confused about who was waiting on our table. Not good for a date due to its open floor plan, so it was noisey. Lasagna was good. Might try it again for lunch, but not dinner.

Over the top a different dining experience. Food is not good it is great and served by people who care about hospitality. You won't be strangers long unless you choose to be.

We always love eating here. The fish soup was a special several years ago and I tried it and fell in love. It is THE BEST. As it is not on the daily menu, I always ask if they will make it and they always do. I'm addicted. The table next to us heard us talking about the fish soup with the waiter. They also ordered it and said it was the highlight of their meal.
Everything else we have had here is also very delicious!

The evening started with our table not being ready. There is no waiting area especially with the cold weather.
After being seated, the service was friendly and the food came out in an orderly manner.
Our food was excellent but unfortunately, I have to sample the desserts on my next visit.

The food itself tasted great. The service, not so great. They only serve wine and beer and the team are very slow even though there were more servers than tables when we were there. A lot of the menu items were sold out and we were not told this at the beginning. Actually, I had to go to the bar and get my own menus then there were large periods of time between being checked on. There was never a check back on the food once it was delivered after a long delay and then the departure process - we were on our own after we paid the check. There was never a farewell or a thank you provided.

Disappointing across the board. Osso Buco was grey, mushy and probably microwaved, looking more like leftover stew. Just about the worst bolognese sauce I have ever eaten, and I lived in Asia for six years! Very limited wine selection and no bar! Service was great but that's the only nice thing I can say. Probably a hot spot 20 years ago when Santa Barbara had no restaurants. Olive Garden would actually be a couple steps UP from this.
