Everything from sauces to breads is made in-house at this cozy bistro that's tucked into a back corner of the Major Market Shopping Center. Owner/chef Ron Nusser has a New York touch with Italian specialties such as Alla Diana Pasta, an antipasto-like Monterey seafood salad, and roasted halibut. But the most popular item on the menu is homemade lasagna, nearly a pound per serving with house-made marinara and three cheeses. Eat in the small dining room, where huge paintings
adorn every wall, or on the tree-shaded patio outdoors. There's an extensive list of California wines, many available by the glass.
