    We arrived a little early but were greeted warmly by our waitress. The food was excellent but the atmosphere was spoilt by a group of loud and boisterous young people who were completely oblivious to other customers. I believe the management should have stepped in to tell them to calm down.

    Our overall experience of the food was good. The seafood linguine was amazing. Wr were on the roof top so the noise level was fine. The rooftop looks tired. The gardening needs attention. Our server was competent. I felt bad for some women at the table beside us whose first language was not English. Their waiter was clearly impatient and spoke to them with a raised voice. When he delivered their food he dropped it in front of them without saying a word. Likely won’t return to this restaurant.

    Patio was great and let us stay past the 2 hour limit. We were going to leave and go to another restaurant for dinner if we were pushed out. I’m not a fan of places kicking you out after a few hours if you are still buying drinks and food.

    We were on the rooftop, so it was quieter than the indoor seating. Our food was outstanding. I had ciopino and my wife had steelhead trout. Both were delicious as was the watermelon and heirloom tomato salad. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    My family and I have made this a family tradition to come here for brunch on our wedding anniversary. It's never disappointed us and will be back next year or sooner.
