We sat outside with perfect sunny California ambiance and enjoyed a farm fresh salad and pizza. Friendly easy-going, yet attentive, service. Great wine selection. We will definitely go back!

Wine bars have to close at 5:00 due to the type of liquor license they use, so this is one of the few places for an "aperitivo" experience in Los Olivos. We were welcomed to take a table for four of us to have wine...More

Went here for breakfast. Coffee OK, food fine, nothing remarkable. Was nice to be able to sit outside. If decide to go for breakfast, get there early to get a seat outside.

Stopped in after Foxen Canyon road ride for some carbs and grapes. The pizza was quite good, the wine flights fabulous. Service a little laid back but very friendly. A very cool stop on the Sideways Tour.
