The staff and cooks continue to provide great atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. The workers seem like a family and appear to honestly enjoy bringing good food to the table. Hopefully, recent news will not dissuade people from dining there. The employees appear to...More

More than a pizza spot - this is a cool Italian restaurant. First off, service is the best. We were greeted by the hostess, promptly seated, and offered beverages. We took our time with the menu but never felt rushed. The wait staff checked in...More

The food is incredible and service is very good as well, they just don't like you to stay too long so they can flip the table. It is pricey but considering that they make everything and the ingredients are top notch it is totally worth...More

The salads looked good but had to send them back. Salt explosion. Yikes! The pizzas here are nice but very strange combinations of ingredients. Also, more salt than need be, and less toppings. We don't have to return.

The food here is always worth it. The menu is limited and changes weekly but you've got to check this place out at least once. The portions are "small" (properly sized) but absolutely delish!

Well, tonight we researched a restaurant in a guide called "TOP 100 Restaurants 2016" a publication of a San Francisco newspaper. Since we are in Oakland, CA we chose this restaurant. The food looked good in the ad. We arrived at 5:15 and the restaurant...More
