Great meal! I decided on the Pea Salad with scallops added. Lite and super tastey. My wife had the cioppino and loved it. Focaccia bread in olive oil and herbs was dense and to die for! Robert was an excellent server! Highly recommended!

I usually go here off season because it's very small. Food is good and service is friendly but prices are on the high end. In season, I'd do late lunch for crowd & price.

No reservations in the summer. People queue at the door. If you can get there early; they have amazing taco specials. Cheers!
What kind of wait would it be for 5:00 on Saturday?
