They had a party in another room and our service was terrible. The bus boy kept bringing bread and water, so it was obvious They knew the service in our room was unacceptable. To top everything else the woman's bathroom was out of order. Our...More

Have eaten here several times. Have always enjoyed it. The carbonara reminds me of when I'm in Rome. Wife enjoyed the salmon special and my finicky twins ate all their fettuccine Alfredo and pesto chicken. We all enjoyed the visit.

This salmon is incredible and the asparagus is so fresh! So happy I came here! The staff is super friendly and it was the perfect stop before I head to Napa!

Lots better choices in the area for Italian; Piatti's-Danville, Incontro-Danville, Pasta Primivera-San Ramon (Great Value, food, & people), and Montecantini-Walnut Creek (family...More

We could not have been more pleased with the open and friendly greeting we received from both the server/manager and the busser. As it was a sparkling day we chose to sit outside at the street level. The two of us had a four-top which...More

I love this place for lunch with the ladies. The soups are spectacular as are the salads. It is in downtown Danville so you can walk around and shop/window shop before or after. Staff is very attentive and friendly.

We go to Basil Leaf during the week when it is not too busy. The service is great, the house wine is perfect with Italian food. I had the Tortellini with mushrooms, prosciutto, peas and a wonderful cream sauce, so much, that I had half...More
