They seem to be trying to be an upscale restaurant but they aren't. The food is mediocre the service is not good (but that could be a fluke) the parking is not convenient, but I like the atmosphere. They have a nice patio area. If they were cheaper then I would say they are a decent restaurant, but honestly their... More

Great food! We had lunch one day and breakfast the next. Both were reasonably priced and very, very good with big portions. Service was awesome and very friendly.

Although the food is delicious, the ambiance good, variety one of the best in town, a breakfast selection of about a hundred items, and fair pricing, the service here runs the gamut from awesome to awful. We enjoy most visits, even if there is a wait period, but never are sure how we will be treated. Sometimes it seems it... More

We went to Tofanelli's for breakfast on our first morning in town. I had the biscuits and gravy which was yummy. My husband ordered an omelet (a ton to choose from) but the server heard him wrong and he did not get the one he wanted but it still was very good. We never mentioned the mistake. The server quickly... More

We had the Chicken Marsala and it was the best we have ever had! Went back the next night to have it again. I also have eaten the 1/3lb burger on gluten free bread and it was really good. Cesar salad with chicken was large and good. Free sourdough bread and dipping oil with balsamic was amazing. We sat in... More

Solid place for great variety of omelettes and eggs benedict dishes as well as a great variety of burgers and sandwiches. Friendly and attentive staff. Busy on the weekends but they turn tables fast and efficiently.

Great place, inside and out ... love the outdoor area and entertainment .... Entertainment was good ... Service was decent .. I did think though that the food was not as fresh or freshly prepared .... We went about an hour before closing and I have been there earlier in the day on prior occasions and everything was freshly prepared... More

This little place is a little jewel. Beautiful location parking is always an issue in Grass valley and Nevada City so beware. Great food always.

The shrimp salad was wonderful, soup was out of this world. The wait staff are fantastic, always there to refill your drinks, suggest meals that might interest me. Ask if I want to try the soup before I ordered.
