Yummy pasta dishes.....porcini tortellinis, smoked chicken or wild boar raviolis. Work nearby and can always count on a satisfied lunch or light dinner. Although a regular, staff is friendly and provide great service. Lunch specials include either a salad or soup.

Nice restaurant close to downtown. Really like there gnocchi in Pesto. Wild boar ravioli was tasty. Only reason for minus 1 star is price is a bit on the high side for such small portions. Fill the plate/bowl all the way up! They were a little skimpy with there 1/2 filled bowl of soup and pasta. Really good tasting food... More

Service and the food and setting are first-rate. Lunch or dinner, inside or out, the folks there always present a fine meal experience.

There are many great Italian restaurants in Marin and this one certainly ranks among them. Both the menu and the wine list contain a lot of variety and items that are not common. We enjoyed our evening there and plan to return.

Decent Italian restaurant , but they could do with more welcoming staff. The fellow who looked like the Maitre D waved us on to a busboy to be seated- then the last person to arrive couldn't find our table in this small restaurant ,since the "maître D waved us on to the wrong table! My balsamic salad was too tart... More
