Northern Italian cooking as prepared in Italy is the rule at this simple dinner-only restaurant about a mile from the ocean in Pacific Beach. Dressed-up or beach-casual diners will feel at home in the intimate dining room or outside on the candlelit patio. Popular choices from the menu include pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven, traditional pastas and entrées like chicken sautéed with Marsala wine and mushrooms, or grilled New York steak tossed with herbs and topped with
arugula and Parmesan shavings. The daily happy hour offers bargain $5 Italian tapas and wine.
