They say that Italian cooking is encapsulated by the idea of “keeping it simple” - this restaurant took that idea a little too seriously. To start, we got the $15 prosciutto appetizer to which they brought out just 4 slices of prosciutto. We also got a cheese appetizer that came with 2 sorry looking slices of cheese with 3 almonds that looked like a 10 year old plated it. For the prosciutto, this price isn’t justified considering the meat had a pungent refrigeration taste and was clearly not fresh. I actually slice fresh prosciutto at my home and what they served is indicative of old meat. They also brought out cold, store bought slices of bread and poured olive oil on our plates. No seasoning of any kind, imagine eating Safeway bread doused in a naked olive oil. I ordered the special seafood gnocchi and there was nothing special about it. The portion was laughable, which is crazy because the gnocchi was cheap and store-bought (if the picture isn’t convincing, just know the plate is flat, not concave, so what you see is what you get). The worst part about it all is that the peas that were included in the dish weren’t all the way thawed, hard and cold like they accidentally put 30 seconds on the microwave instead of 45. Their entrees are akin to those instant meals you can find in the frozen section at any grocery store. The reason I’m not giving a zero-star if I could is because honestly, the saffron cake dessert was quite good, and is worth mentioning. Nonetheless, in my opinion, this restaurant justifies their semi-high prices by trying to sell the “Italian experience” but most native Italians will know how far off this place is from true Italian cuisine. This place is far overrated and it seems like most good reviews are friends with the owner.
The owner Roberto was friendly and our server Mateo was polite. The vegan option, the Roma Pizza was so good. The olives were yummy, my spouse had the salmon and we were pleased. The location is homely and the experience was worth it. Good spot to visit for good Italian food..
This place is amazing! I have never had such perfectly cooked salmon, scallops, and shrimp. Oh, and the wine...so good! 10/10 would come back over and over. Parking can be tough, but they do validate for the parking lot right in front of the restaurant.
Some of the best pizza we ever had. Truly Italian. Not that fake red sauce out of a jar. Nice thin crust. Made to order while you wait. Plus Roberto is entertaining and good-natured.
Super nice service and outdoor setting. The business followed all the safety guidelines and it was a great experience! Most important thing is the food is great. I will recommend grilled octopus as an appetizer!
