Really helpful! Amazing service and fantastic food. I am a vegan, which was not a problem. I had a vegetable pasta which was excellent!

Dropped in here as it was getting late and we were on our way back to our hotel... small place. Seats like 45 people. A threesome entered ahead of us, they had to wait for a larger table. There were twosome tables at the back; got right in. $6 bottles of Peroni. Specials were plentiful and a wide variety. Fresh, warm sliced bread with olive oil provided. Penne with sausage is my usual go to - tried it - was odd to have used round sausage bites that you’d find in Italian Wedding Soup, but whatever. Price was right. Didn’t have any desserts, but they have tiramisu and $7.50 bowls of spumoni ice cream.

Cozy, intimate - loved this place! The homemade pasta was tender, flavorful, absolutely superb! Bread with dipping oil and sun dried tomatoes was delicious. Very nice wine selection. Excellent service, had an old school formality to it. Will come back here again anytime I'm in SF.

Visited here recently as fancied Italian food. I had prawns with homemade pasta, 6 juicy prawns but way too much pasta, other diner had pasta and chicken in a tomato based sauce that was v bland. Bread served was warm and light.. dipped in oil.. v edible. Hit the spot but way better restaurants out there

Was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. I had the lobster and shrimp ravioli and husband had the lasagne. Both were amazing. The house bread was awesome too. Would definitely go back again.
