Have had great meals here with both small and large parties. Always fresh ingredients well-prepared, tasty and never disappointing. Good food, whether pizzas or multi-course meals, and with good wine selections. Very friendly wait staff.

We stopped in for lunch before a movie and it was perfect. I had the greek chicken wrap and my wife had the chilaquiles, both were great. Its seems like new management or ownership, we will definitely be back

Three of our party had fish entrees and one had a chicken pasta. They were all OK. The highlights for us were their salads. The portions were very generous, even if you ordered the half/smaller size salad. I very much enjoyed the Farmers Vegetables salad....More

I had the short ribs and my girlfriend had the cioppino. Both were very good. I had read about the bread they serve up, but this night it was nothing to write home about. Had some good wine. Service was also good. Worth a visit...More

Walked by, checked the menu and got a table. Uniquely yummy food in La Jolla at very reasonable prices. A welcome alternative to other trendy high priced spots. Very very good lunch menu with burgers, sandwiches, salads, and egg dishes more like frittatas than omelet....More
