The selection of food and wine is great in this place even for an Italian. Of course some Italian quality products are featured on the menu, but the wines at the glass were a real discovery even for an addicte wine taster, both on the American side and on the European one. Well done.

Love this cool Bar/eatery. Imaginative small plates and great wine selection. Service is friendly and fast. Start with one small plate and I promise you will order more. Great plates to share or enjoy alone. I've been two nights in a row because it was a perfect late night doing option and I love the poached Mission Figs. Don't miss... More

We had some nice sandwiches and the service was really friendly and attentive. Simple but nice interior with outdoor seating in the summer.

We went here while waiting to get into another restaurant in the area and I was impressed with how good all of the food was. The service was friendly and fast and a solid variety of small plates so its perfect to go here for appetizers or before a dinner.

Great place with good and prompt service. Attentive waiter. Had a few red wines which were great. Potato chips with aioli and turkey sandwich to eat. Can recommend it for a good wine experience and evening snack.

When we arrived we just wanted to have a couple of glasses of wine but the bar was packed (it was a Saturday night). The hostess graciously let us sit at a table in the back and our servers were attentive and helpful. We tried a few white wines, from a sauvignon blanc and a vouvray to a couple of... More

While traveling with college friends we went here after lunch rush time and enjoyed the atmosphere and the delicious salads. Actually found it based on a suggestion from a different restaurant that could not accommodate us!

Maybe I am just too old for this place. If you like dimly lit dining, loud music and tiny portions -this is the place for you! We had trouble reading the menu and hearing each other. Bruschetta was 2 tiny-about 6"x 1" pieces of good bread with greens on it . I had trouble finding anything on the menu that... More

Had the best salad I have ever eaten: smoked duck salad with pistachios, dried cherries, grana padano and spinach. They had one of my very favorite beers on tap: Fat Head Head Hunter's IPA. We had a lovely table on the sidewalk, in shade thanks to umbrellas. What made it the perfect lunch: excellent service. My husband's sandwich, albacore tuna,... More
