    Arrived ahead of our reservation and were graciously accommodated. Patio seating was very pleasant, tables spaced out nicely. Food came at a good pace, but not rushed. Our waiter was attentive to detail. Over all lovely experience for four ‘first-time’ customers. Our food ran the gamut halibut w/lemon caper sauce; filet mignon in a reduction, a rigatoni pasta dish and one more, all very delicioso!

    Fantastic food, the ceviche is outstanding! Everything we ordered we were so happy with, especially the seasbass. Worth getting their special hot tea as well. The desserts are gorgeous, little pieces of art.

    This classic Italian restaurant is one we return to whenever we are in SLO, the food is authentic, delicious and perfectly presented. The service is friendly and efficient. The ambiance is more old world. And something we especially appreciate is that the acoustics allow for actual conversation, something so rare in modern restaurants with all the hard surfaces, open kitchens, and loud music. This makes it particularly pleasant for date nights, larger multigenerational family gatherings, or any dinner out where members of the party actually want to share a conversation over their fine meal.

    The food is amazing! Four of us had dinner together, and each person ordered a different dish. We all loved everything! The waitress, Perry, was so attentive and helpful, and all of the staff were very friendly.
