This place pleasantly surprised me. It's not Greek and it's not Italian. It's Mediterranean. That means a little different preparation on some familiar classics. For example I ordered Eggplant Parmesan. It wasn't breaded. The eggplant was cooked to perfection. It was neither tough or mushy. It was slathered in a deeply flavored marinara sauce with a medallion of mozzarella cheese melted on top. Familiar but different. It was delightful.

There are nice options for seating. There is a bar with a porch area. There is the regular dining rooms and then there is a balcony on the back side that wraps around part of the backside of the building. We chose al fresco dining.

The servers were knowledgeable, helpful and quick. Our server earned her tip.

The food is well prepared and tasty with quite a few familiar classics that are a little different.

The olive focaccia bread provided for dipping in olive oil was warm, chewy and paired well with the olive oil and cheese.

We will be back!

We were excited to try this place after seeing the 5 star reviews on trip advisor. We were so disappointed. The New York strip was tough, overcooked and lacked seasoning. For $24 we really expected better. The ravioli was undercooked and raw on the edges. The Sherry cream sauce had no flavor of Sherry at all and was blah tasting. There is so much better in the area so we won't be back.

We met friends at Pan d'Olive for Happy Hour on a Thursday. Our friends had been here a number of times before and wanted to introduce us to one of their new favorites.

Happy Hour at PO includes a limited number of food items; additionally the "call" brands of liquor are not on the HH menu. There are no craft or upscale beers and only House wines.

Throughout the evening we ordered 7-8 different appetites; I really didn't think I would order any of them again. Some were served cold in the center and others (flatbreads) seemed hastily prepared. Our service was satisfactory, but nothing special.

The seating is satisfactory, however certain seating is reserved for dining as opposed to HH. Apparently the patio on the South side of the building is for diners only. PO is easy enough to find and parking is in an adjacent surface lot in what is basically a residential area.

I took my mother there the week of Mother's Day for lunch, and it was fabulous. Lunch is only $9.95 a person and includes an appetizer, entree, and beverage. An excellent value, and the food is absolutely delicious!!! I went back for dinner, and I was equally impressed. I absolutely love this restaurant!

Had been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time & finally made it! It was really nice. Good food. Multiple vegetarian options for several members of our family. Nice service. Sitting on the deck surrounded by grapevines was pleasant. Will be going back & definitely recommend this place.
