Great view, good food, patio outside just makes it better! Smallish bar, so it is hard to get a great sunset view from inside, but the patio view is awesome, one of the best on the north coast

Not very good food for the price, not Authentic Italian . You are paying for the view. Too loud for a romantic 💏 night. Marcos in Vista, worth the 10 minute drive

This restaurant has something for everyone. It offers Italian dishes, steak and seafood. I had a side of linguini marinara (which was more like a full plate) and a salad while my mom ordered the seafood ravioli. We were both satisfied with our choices. The...More
