Client's Review

Our customers aren't afraid to tell the world that we've done a great job!

My husband and I came here on a Saturday night for our monthly date night. I'm a hairstylist in Willow Glen and this place was highly recommended to me by clients. I was already made aware that they were located behind Lincoln Avenue and was accessible by Minnesota. They have large signs on Minnesota making it easier to find. Parking was easy, even for a Saturday night! The patio is beautiful and has a great vibe.

The décor of the inside was very clean, simple and classic Italian. It's small with a large bar located in the center. They only serve beer and wine, but the selection was good with reasonable prices. We ordered the Pear and Gorgonzola flatbread to start. It was amazing!! Such great flavors.

We were fighting for pieces and ate everything off of the plate. He had the Rib Eye special and I had the Butternut Squash Risotto. Both were delicious. His Rib Eye was huge! One pound. So we definitely took it to go. He had the Tiramisu for dessert and I had the double chocolate peanut butter gelato. YUM! During dinner the owner/head chef came by to check in on us. He was very friendly, but didn't hover around for too long, which is appreciated. It made us feel great to support a small business in the area. It shows that Dave the owner cares about his customers and the food and flavors he produces.

We will definitely be back! Hopefully next time we can get a spot on the patio! ;-)
