This is our go to place when we are in the mood for a higher end experience. The service is consistently good. The menu is short on lighter dishes which I prefer so I have other favorite italian places down in the SF Bay area but this one fits the bill out here in the burbs.

It's located in the nice restaurant section of The Galleria Mall so it's an excellent place for a shopping pit stop. The bar area is large with TV's so it's a nice seating and diners are good. The food is always very good but rarely very, very good. So it's always consistent, reliable and tasty. The service is excellent

i have heard a lot about this place and finally went there last week. I have to say that entry from the parking lot is not promising as you keep on seeing that main entry arrow until you reach the door. If you parked in covered parking then surely the entry is more what straight forward. Now lets come to... More

When there for a special day. The dining experience was superb. The food was excellent and the service just superb. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and the server made it special. The food was fresh and well prepared. The desert was excellent. Highly recommend. WIll certainly go back.
