We will definitely be back. The menu had a huge selection of Italian dishes, pastas, meats and seafood. The staff and owners were so friendly, it made me feel like we were having dinner at their house. My seafood entree was melt-in-your mouth delicious. I...More

Agree, it was late on a quiet night, but ONE waiter to handle all the tables didn't cut it. The food, however, especially the steamers, was EXCELLENT. Papardelle: very nice. Good, eclectic wine list. Odd, no conventional sparkling water brands.

We visit Morro Bay quite frequently, and almost always find time for this excellent, seafood-oriented Italian restaurant. Food and service are outstanding. A touch pricy, but worth it.

Recommended to us by other travelers staying in Morro Bay, we were quite pleased with the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food as tasty as the food from the kitchens of my Italian family members. I had linguini and clams - the best...More

Who ever gives this place 5 stars and says it's the best Italian/ Mediterranean food around, there is something mentally wrong with you! Terrible food, service, enviroment. Don't waste your money here!
