Fodor's Review

Twentysomethings mingle with boomers in this convivial Bankers Hill dining room and bar, one of the most popular restaurants in town. Country-farmhouse decor that mixes rolling pins with modern art looks and feels festive. The open kitchen turns out innovative Italian food with a California sensibility to enjoy traditionally or at communal tables. Many dishes are under $20, including crowd-pleasing short-rib pappardelle, fried stuffed squash blossoms, ricotta gnudi and

thin-crust pizzas. At the in-house Wine Shop, purchase reasonably priced bottles from “the Americas and Mediterranean,” opened tableside for an $8 corkage fee. End the meal with espresso sipped between bites of gelato, tiramisu, or cannoli.
