Looks cute and quaint from the outside. Food is below average, nothing special at all. The owner was nice, but I just expected more from this. Would rather eat elsewhere or just at home than here again.

Food and Service mediocre. Staff and owners very arrogant. Small quaint local restaurant. Been several times. Food is erratic. Depending upon waiter service can be either good or bad.

THis restaurant was everything we could have wished for last night. Friendly, relaxed, interesting menu, excellent wine list, top class food. Located in the main street of Balboa Island, and clearly a long term fixture on the island, we found ourselves surrounded by locals and...More

This Italian gem sits in the middle of Balboa Island. From the quaint atmosphere to the amazing cuisine, this restaurant is a must when visiting the island.
