This long time family restaurant sits in beautiful old town San Juan Capistrano and is definitely worth a visit. Their bread and olive oil dip is delightful and the food is very good. We will be back.

We had lunch at this cozy restaurant and we loved it. It has a gorgeous patio, surrounded by exotic plants and flowers, a fireplace and with nice views of the Mission San Juan Capistrano ruins.
Food was delicious, the service fast and attentive and the prices very reasonable.
It was a great stop!

Everything was simply marvelous. We four relished the FLAVORS. A charcuterie plate w/cheese & Greek olives, a walnut/pear/Gorgonzola salad, squid ink pasta w/clams (13 clams!), lg pasta shells w/ricotta, a Caesar, & for dessert espresso over vanilla ice cream shared by us four. Just the best way possible to end the day after the awe & contemplation that Mission San Juan Capistrano roused in us.

The lunch menu is well portioned with lots of delicious options. I've enjoyed the spaghetti, as well as the lasagna. Loved them both!
