We just drove up, looking for a restaurant. Boy, did we luck out! The atmosphere, the food and the service ranked with the best restaurants that I have ever eaten it, worldwide, including Italy. The four of us had various dishes. I had the Tortellini Alla Romana, a homemade tortellini made with prosciutto, chicken and peas, in a mushroom sauce. I can still taste it, as I write this review. The spaghetti with meatballs was an amazing dish, also. I got a taste from my brother's plate. The service was outstanding. The owner hovered over the restuarant, to make sure everything was perfect for everyone. The atmosphere was cozy and family like. When we left, my twin brother turned to me and asked: "Just what are the odds of driving up and finding a place like this?" "Very, very long odds, Jimmy".

I heard positive reviews about this restaurant from one of our friends who is a "foodie." So....we decided to try it...My husband and I ordered to go...I had the pepperoni pizza for 12.95. I had one slice and just could not eat a second slice. The pepperoni tasted greasy and fatty. Gross. My husband had a pasta dish..I cannot remember what he ordered. Anyhow, he enjoyed his entree. I will be open minded and give this restaurant another chance...next time, I will eat inside and order a pasta dish..and skip the pepperoni pizza.

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.
