Chef-owner Bruce Hill (of Bix and Picco fame) has created a popular and comfortable California-Italian restaurant where you can go almost any time of day, whether you're craving one of his standout thin-crust "Cali-politan" pizzas for lunch, a cocktail and an order of Taleggio-stuffed arancini after work, house-made pasta for dinner, or flavorful skillet-fried chicken thighs with a waffle for brunch. Ingredients are fresh and seasonal, and portions are affordable and easy
to share. Large groups can also order punch bowls for the table, and a few wines are available on tap. The mistake diners make is not saving room for dessert, a choose-your-own-toppings soft serve. There's a lengthy downstairs bar and lounge, with another second smaller bar upstairs that are both packed in the evenings with diners and drinkers alike.
