We came here on our drive to the Sonoma Valley. Loved it! Had a drink at the slanted bar as we waited for the restaurant to actually open. The bar area is eclectic with many hats hanging from the ceiling and the building itself is interesting as it slants drastically. Dinner was perfectly cooked and a great value. The minestrone...

Came by myself for lunch and had the best eggplant parmesan with polenta to die for. I came a week later for dinner with my husband and seated further back next to a family of about 8 with adults and children. Much too close seating as their laughter and loud voices gave me a headache! Plus the overhead fan could... More

Went there for lunch after visiting Locke which is just a couple of miles down the road. The place is very unassuming from the outside and we got there just as they were ready to end their luncheon service. There is a bar as you enter the place, but we sat in the restaurant section in the back which has... More

This little place is not to be missed! It is off the beaten path, but worth the trip. If you are looking for fine dining, this may not be the place for you.
