Good for a date night, business meeting, or a casual outing with friends, this open, elegant dining room offers warm service, a knowledgeable staff, and a solid Mediterranean-influenced menu. Made from scratch, the pasta is artfully prepared. Good options include the ravioli filled with Dungeness crab, ricotta, and caramelized fennel and the rigatoni with spicy sausage, garlic, fresh mozzarella, and basil. The meat entrées, like the lamb osso bucco with spaetzle, are
equally tantalizing. Top off the meal with the bittersweet chocolate cobbler, served warm with vanilla-bean gelato. An an extensive small-plates menu is priced attractively at happy hour.
