    We had a wonderful server and a wonderful meal. We try to come when it’s early evening,6:30, so that the noise level isn’t too high. This was the perfect time. Everything we ate was done to perfection. I asked for decaf coffee after and was given a fresh cup! Lovely as always!

    There was so much gristle in the NY steak it couldn’t be cut we and we had to send it back but the next one wasn’t any better. We didn’t eat it. The waiter was not very attentive and didn’t check on us but once.

    Great dinner with excellent service. Wife started with the field green salad, but had the goat cheese replaced with Toma cheese. She loved the salad. We both had pasta dishes. Her’s, pasta with shrimp. They were generous with the shrimps. I had the carbonara. It was delicious. The pasta was fresh made. Coffee and dessert to end the dinner. I will say the dinner was great and the service was the best. You gotta try this place.

    The overall ambiance needs an overhaul. The food for the price was marginal and the dinner and drink menu was lacking creativity. The restaurant is mixed with a bar and tv’s facing both areas. The atmosphere was like being in a sports bar. All of that aside, the service was outstanding.

    Di Stefano Burrata and charcuterie boards which were a delightful way to begin the meal. The Halibut and Grilled Salmon as entrées were absolutely delicious, along with Risotto Verde. Such a great dining experience with friends and support our neighborhood gem. Here's to many more enjoyable evenings like this one!

    This older local spot has gone down hill. Could use a remodel. Tired and not that great. Pizza tasted like tomato paste was used for the Margarita. The salad was okay. Way over dressed and vinegar forward. Bread basket was tasty. The spinach salad was spinach bacon and beets—weird combo.

    Food is mediocre- nothing special. Got the Carbonara and it has crunchy, fatty pieces of thick cut bacon - and the sauce was thick and eggy tasting. Pizza was ok, crust did not have much taste. Farmhouse salad was good and service was very good.

    Our server was an absolute sweetheart, she was the highlight of the evening! We had the burrata appetizer which didn’t come with enough bread and what we did get was as hard as a rock. The entire table got the same entree, the carbonara, and it was good but not great. We all got sick later that night, so take that how you will. It won’t deter me from going back, but I’ll definitely try something completely different. It seems a bit pricey for what it ultimately is.

    Wait staff was badly inattentive. The place was probably 10% full yet cocktails were very slow, which means it wasn’t the bar backed up. Ordered wine after entrees but showed up before appetizers and cocktails. Never came back to pour wine. Had to do it ourselves when food arrived by runner. Never once did the waiter pour a drop of wine. Appetizer plates left on the table and we had to set them aside to make room for the entrees. Calamari appetizer listed chickpeas were in it, but it was 50% chickpeas and (maybe) broken bits of squid. My date had the short ribs. She seemed to like them. Pork chop was so salty the much touted “chutney” could barely be detected in a mixed bite. Date tasted and comment was “that’s really salty.” Brussels sprouts on the side were good. Slightly charred and crispy, perfect. High point of the meal. Sad when the high point of the meal is the veggie side on your entree. Deduct overpriced but not horribly overpriced La Crema Pinot Noir, still hit over $200 with no dessert or coffee. At that price I can get a rave review worthy dinner in San Francisco. Sad the Sacramento locals promise the same thing at the same price but serve up nothing close at the same price. Avoid.

    I noted that my grandmother would be joining us for my birthday dinner and that she needed comfortable seating. They were accommodated us perfectly and gave me a complementary dessert for my birthday, plus a super cute table setting specifically for my birthday. The waiters were so kind and the food was of the fine dining level presented. The drinks were super good too. Highly recommended requesting JC and getting an espresso martini.

    The Valentines price fixe offering was kind of a goopy mess. There was no real texture to any of the 5 courses, it was one gooey and salty sauce after another, made worse by a poorly prepared risoto. The restaurant ran out of its lamb entree before we sat down at 8:30, which for Valentines Day seems like poor inventory planning. The dessert was dry and flavorless. Service was good, but for the price, this was one of the worst meals I've had in a long time.

    For the price it was the worse meal I’ve ever had. Crab soup was good except for it being room temp and having shells in it. Ahi dish seemed like it had also just been sitting out. Sorbet seemed like it was scooped out of a 4gallon container from Safeway. Then came the staple of the meal, the lamb. Overdone and didn’t seem to be prepped before cooking. Chewy and uncuttable. Knives seemed sharp and they couldn’t get through either side of the tbone. Will not be coming back. Extremely disappointed. Service was good.
