Considering this restaurant is a part of the Mission Inn I was expecting a bit more. The first thing I was surprised about: I was shown to an outside table which was covered in detritus from an overhanging tree, the host didn't seem to notice so I asked for my table to be cleaned, which she did, wiping off the...

The host was gracious with a huge smile and seated me immediately. The restaurant was not full. I waited ten minutes and a lovely waitress game but ten minutes...really???? I ordered the veal lasagna. It was bland and uneventful. The bread looks great but has an odd flavor. Overall I was completely underwhelmed with this restaurant and would not return.... More

The pizza we had the crust was hard as a rock. I will never eat pizza there again. It taught me a lesson to, when asked how my food is I will be truthful.

We have dined here numerous times. The recent enclosure of the patio is lovely and the atmosphere is very nice. Unfortunately this time we encountered such slow service that we are not likely to return anytime soon. Although we had a reservation, many other diners were seated before we were and the staff appeared unwilling to combine tables for our... More

This was our second time to this restaurant. Although it was a chilly evening, outdoor heaters were perfect for a cozy semi-private table for two, outdoors around the corner in front of the glass. I ordered the Fettuccini Alfredo minus the Chicken. I am really grateful the sauce was not a heavy white cream sauce. It was more on the... More

Again, arrived during rainiest weather in years for Southern California. Had ventured out in between rain bursts to have a wind down cocktail before finding a local BBQ place nearby. Unfortunately that restaurant was closed and decided to try this Italian restaurant. The waiter couldn't have been more pleasant and with few out and about that evening, seemed respectful of...

The ambiance at this beautiful little Italian bistro, tucked against the Mission Inn, is both romantic and reminiscent of old world Italy. My wife met a client there and was immediately texting me that we had to have a romantic interlude that night. I arrived and with one look at the stone columns and strung lights, my hopes began to...

Had a family dinner here, beautiful place! The service was minimal. Can I get you anything to start? Are you ready to order? Can I get you anything else? Then the check.

We went there during the Festival of Lights. Although we had reservations, our parties were seated at separate tables. As a vegetarian, I opted for the pizza, which was fair at best. The garden salad was very good. My husband loved his chicken pasta. Service was excellent. I would not return.
