    Great Braised Short Rib pasta! Go early on summer nights since they don't do reservations for outside area.

    Play bocce in the patio since they have a court. Order a nice wine or Italian beer to drink while you make new friends playing bocce.

    Brunch is loud and the host may give you a hard time, but the staff is great the pan con tomato is a good choice. A reservation is necessary for a table but brunch at the bar is allowed.

    I went for Summer Restaurant Week and the food was delicious. The Sockeye Salmon was the best I've ever had. Sit outside, the patio lights are pretty neat.

    Tables outside on the patio are best for overall brunch experiences (less noise than inside). Brunch bottomless mimosas end at 3pm so try to arrive by noon or 1pm.

    Never again, the chef pretty much burnt everything, including the fries. It was also expensive.

    There’s a healthy-sized wine selection, and the snacks are just what we need: bite-sized cheeses, veggies, and charcuterie. The crowd fills out around 6:00pm for happy hour every night. Read more

    Do get the cheese plate & kale. Avoid any dish that involves chicken liver (e.g., the gnocchi). Server seemed unconcerned when we said 1 of the chocolates on tasting plate tasted like soap.

    Their front patio policy is ridiculous! We arrived at 5:30 and it was EMPTY however we couldn't stay without ordering food. Knowing the hospitality industry, it's upsetting!
