By far my favorite restaurant. We love everything about the place. . We go as often as possible. We had a holiday dinner with friends Saturday night. There were 8 adults and my 7 year old. Our waiter was fabulous and went out of his way to make sure my 7 year old was as happy as the adults. Brought him a Shirley Temple with 7 cherries and offered, without any prompting, to prepare him something off-menu. We all had a fabulous meal and a great time.

Was excited to go this weekend and was really disappointed and now see that this place is just WAY over rated. My over all take is poor management=poor service and poor execution of food. The staff and the kitchen/menu are not being trained well enough to be at this price point. We had a large party of 7 and we had to ask repeatedly for service throughout the meal. eg: we had to ask for dishes to be bused- dishes that had put at the end of the table obviously saying we wanted them taken but they were ignored, Even after we pointed them out only some were taken, some were left behind. We had to constantly ask for more water during our entire meal, and I mean constantly. It was ridiculous. May I have some more water please? May I have some more water please? May I have some more water please? Irritating, right? We had to ask for the table to be wiped down after the waiter put clean flatware down on he table right next to spilled food and debris from the previous dishes. Two people who were not drinking wine were offered wine EVERY time glasses were being refilled. And EVERY time they said no thank you, no more for me. Basically the service was well intended but VERY poorly executed. Like the waiters looked good? But don't really know what "service" is. And to food- again, well intended but poorly executed. It was pretty food but not great tasting food. To the point where just some simple salt would have made a big difference. My recommendation- retrain your staff - FOH and kitchen.

The polenta under glass is not all that. Was it good? Yes. Amazing? No. I was really looking forward to this dish after hearing so much about it. We also had the wood grilled octopus to start with. The flavors and texture just didn't work for me. All I tasted was dry salty octopus. I love octopus but not here. We really enjoyed the black garlic spaghetti grande with prawns, it was the highlight of our meal. We also had the rigatoni al coniglio with rabbit sugo. Our server told us it's their signature pasta dish. It was good, not great. Truffle parm fries. It's good but it's not that special. After eating a quarter of it, the salt just piled on and it just got too overwhelmingly salty so we couldn't finish it. For dessert we had the zeppole (donuts) and panna cotta. They were both pretty good. I like that they took an extra step with the desserts. For instance, it was not just plain donuts. It was filled and crusted. Don't miss the hot chocolate cocktail. It's basically spiked hot cocoa. It was great. Service was nice. They came by often to pick things up and give us refills on soda, tea and water without us having to ask. Iced tea came with a wedge of meyer lemon. Nice touch. Portion sizes are generous and prices are reasonable. I was not blown away but it was a good meal overall.

I can't believe I waited this long to dine here! I came in here with low expectations; partly because I've been bored with Italian food in the past few years (they're delicious but rarely any dish is new or refreshing) and because I was so certain this place was over-hyped because it's been talked up so much. Well, silly me for skipping this restaurant on my past 4 trips! I loved every single dish and scraped up every last crumb and smear of sauce on my plate. This is pretty impressive since I've had a very small appetite lately and because it was Day 3 of my trip in Napa and I was experiencing palate fatigue from all the wines and fine dining - including an overly indulgent black truffle tasting menu from La Toque the night before. The presentation of the dishes were intriguing and each was packed with savory goodness. I especially loved my orecchiette which had a subtle lingering flavor of goat's milk and extremely creamy rich taste. My meal: Fresh scallops with caviar served on a Himalayan salt brick Goat Milk Braised Pork Orecchiette chantrelles, cavalo nero pesto, pine nut gremolata, crispy Savoy spinach, pecorino Black Pepper Bucatini alla Carbonara soft cooked hen egg, grilled escarole, guanciale and parmigiano brodo Tiramisu in a jar
