When we stay in Chula Vista, we always eat here. The food is exquisite, the service impeccable, the wind selection wide and varied and the price range make this restaurant an incredible value.

We were staying down the street and happened by, looking for a light dinner. My husband had clams in garlic wine sauce with linguini, and had mushrooms and tomatoes over a malfalde. Both were excellent as was the service. The decor is simple but nice. We will definitely be back.

Homey Italian feel to this restaurant.. Heart of downtown Chula Vista... Great place to take out-of-towners!

What can I say, this place is awesome!

I arrived, was greeted, sat and had water and warm fresh bread in less than 5 min!

I ordered a Cesar, bruchetta, and tortellini. The salad was spot on with fresh i ingredients, a proper proportioned dressing to salad ratio. And the dressingwas very nice!

The bruchetta was toasted crispy with some nicely chopped tomatoes with herbs and topped with cheese. The flavors melded nicely, the bread was toasted just right to stay crispy... a great appetizer gor sure!

The pasta was hand made. The chicken and cheese filling was wondrous. The sauce with peas, and mushrooms just brought a nic comfort flavor to the whole dish.

I finished the meal with a nice cup of custard, that was very good then to find rum soaked biscuit on the bottom.... uuh yum!,

I will be going here again!

My wife and I and three friends ate a variety of Italian dishes at this restaurant. Spaghetti Carbonara, tortellini, veal scaloppini, were all delicious, and the service was superb. Nice wine and beer list. They do al dente if you ask.
