Located in Crystal Cove the promenade give this venue a European flair. The entry is flanked on both sides with dining rooms that are just perfect for family-style gatherings. With a warm color palette of creams and tans, the dramatic artwork encourages a second glance. The kitchen offers a peek-a-boo window into the world of their fast-paced blur of cooking and plating. A somewhat hidden bar just behind a partitioned wall is the locals spot. The food is genuine and delicious. Each plate is proudly presented with a burst of rich color befitting the highest quality of ingredients selected by the chef. The wine list is impressive and many are available by the glass too. Some of my favorites include the Tomato Basil Rustic Soup, Eggplant Parmigiana and the Griglia (Veal) Marsala.
