T. WestWe were walking around looking at all the new restaurants and stumbled upon this little gem. ... The smell of the brussels sprouts wafted over from the next table, and although we thoroughly enjoyed our salads (chop salad and green salad) we couldn’t help but notice what everyone else was eating. Will have to return when we have more time and bigger appetites. This place is a winner!
was not worth it considering I paid $26 for a 'small' 10" pizza. service was standard, for takeout. the space itself was very clean in appearance. ordered a Margherita pizza , the pizza had a nice crust but was definitely lacking in sauce, not satisfying. overall, would not return here
Couldn't find a single restaurant with space for two on a Friday night without a reservation. Finally followed the white rabbit and ended up at this little gem.
The cocktails are as good as it gets. Try either the classic old fashioned or the OUTSTANDING Honey Crisp-- I could've had 10 of those, liver be damned.
I'm not sure why this is categorized as a pizza place, it's so much more. We got the bucatini, burrata, and the caesar salad. All were delicious. Service was excellent. Ambiance perfect. I'll definitely be coming back!
Pretty empty for a Saturday night dinner but this meant fast service and super attentive waitresses.
4/5 dinner , 3/5 dessert
- the mushroom and leek white sauce pizza was amazingly creamy with enough leeks to pack some zest. the brought us a generous portion of shaved Parmesan and Chili flakes which paired well
- the Wood Oven Octopus was ok, thought the arugula was soaked in the chili oil that was lacking in Chili but the tenderness of the octopus made up for it. We added the cheese and Chili from the pizza and it tasted better.
- almond panne cotta was lightly not too sweet type of sweet & tiramisu was alright. appreciated the sprinkle of cacao nibs for surprise crunch
Chill catch up dinner or casual date night vibes for the ambiance. People were not too dressy for a place that looked more formal with dark lighting and ink paintings. Overall a good place for dinner without a wait.
We went to this restaurant on Valentine's Day. The ambiance was soft and feel good. Our waitress was extremely polite. I've heard their pizzas are very good but we were more in the mood for pasta. We got the Gnocchi and Pan Seared Branzino Filet. The Gnocchi was soft and a little on the saltier side. I like salty food so I enjoyed this dish. The cherry tomatoes and peas a great combination to add to the flavor. The filet was bursting with flavor and a great level of crispness. The quantity of the food was just right so we could get some desserts as well. For desserts we got the Panna Cotta and Chocolate Pot de Crème. Personally not a coconut fan which was in the panna cotta - personally I like just regular panna cotta. The chocolate pot was basically a whole scoop of pure thick chocolate so if you aren't a pure chocolate person I suppose you want to avoid this one. We had the panna cotta to balance it out. We also got their valentine's day special cocktails and they were a delight.
We didn't make a reservation and went around 6pm, there was no wait. We were served fast so I don't think the wait is too bad even if you arrive later. Parking isn't an issue because there is plenty of street parking around the area and also a garage nearby. It's a quiet road although it is close to downtown Oakland.
