Visiting friends who took us to this amazing restaurant for lunch.Our friend did the ordering for us and boy, was he spot on! Started with burrata and prosciutto as well as crostini topped with different toppings like fava bean hummus, eggplant, tomato yumminess. He then ordered gnocchi done 2 ways: with Gorgonzola sauce and with bolognese. OMG! I have never... More

Ate lunch here after a rainy day seeing Alcatraz. Carrot/butternut squash soup was warm and filling on a cold day. Could have just at that and been happy. Lasagna and eggplant parmesan were excellent as well.

I have been dining at this restaurant for quite sometime and never was disappointed. To me it always feels like home. The quality of food is great and generous portions. Come have some pasta, great Bolognese and my favorite is the cheese ravioli. Great wine selection and the service is very good.

Owned by Sapore and very good. Good for a casual lunch, quick bite, panini, gelato, and more. They have excellent daily specials. All homemade with care and the same standards as Sapore (our favorite restaurant).

You have to try the mortadella panini! All of the meats and cheeses come straight from Italy! Cute little place off of the main avenue. They also serve coffee drinks and gelato! Must try!

I chose this place based on its proximity to our hotel (less than 3 miles) and ratings on Yelp. It was an excellent decision. This was a really good, personal cafe. The menu changes frequently, if not daily. The young man working the front was super nice and helpful. This little cafe does the small things right. It's clear that... More

Small Italian delicatessen. Lousy pizza and eggplant parm. Nice salads. Waitress likes to spray windex while you are eating.
