Great food. Authentic taste. Friendly service. We always return for more. It is definitely worth the drive to Half Moon Bay!

The waiter was WAY over the top with a fake Italian accent. Service was extremely slow and the entrees for our party of four all came a different times. Food was mediocre. We met with a local for dinner and she was so disappointed, she made it clear she would never go back.

The owners are from Naples, so when they say wood fired Neapolitan pizza, it's the real deal. Kept going back to try all their pizzas it was so good.

This is a very fun and casual place to eat. The staff and owner are great. They have terrific private wine room for groups of people. We brought our own 3 bottles of wine. $60 corkage hurts. We weren't wild about the italian dishes. Love the wood fired pizzas. They also have a very nice outside eating area thats covered.

We've been here a couple of times since it opened and it is now hitting its stride--the kitchen works much more smoothly and the specials are particularly good. Gone is the gloppy over-tomatoey sauce, and, instead, great, fresh and more nuanced sauces (and less of it). Pizza is terrific, as was the seafood risotto. Moreover, everyone in the place just seems to be having a good time. Wine list - especially the Italian reds - are a pretty good value. We're coming back!
