A group of us had a nice dinner here on a Friday evening. The meal starts with warm fresh bread – olive oil and balsamic are on the table. I shared a starter salad (fresh and lightly dressed) with a friend and the kitchen split it on to 2 plates (thanks!). I enjoyed the Grilled Salmon over wild rice despite the fact that was overcooked. Others really enjoyed their pasta dishes. Service was efficient and non-intrusive.

Went there yesterday for a birthday lunch the food my friend had was fine he said it was comparable to other places he had eaten the same dish, I had the risotto which was on the special menu to me it was far too cheesy and had very little asparagus tasted like cheesy rice.
Bottom line thinking I would not go back or maybe should have had something else , have also eaten at Mike's cafe in the past this is more upscale in price lunch for two with desert was 64 dollars.

I don't come down to Palo Alto often, but when I do this is the restaurant I always think of first. Tucked away in an unassuming strip mall location, once inside you immediately feel welcome and at home. Great wine list and solid, well rounded Italian cuisine. I dream of the butternut squash ravioli!

Another thing we like is that you feel like you have a bit more anonymity here compared to dining around U Ave.
