Sorry...this restaurant has been closed and replaced. Most likely due to the competition from Macaroni Grill and Pasta Pomodora in nearby El Cerrito Plaza.

For the price, this place is great for some pasta. I like to go here with co-workers for lunch since it is relatively quick. My absolute favorite is getting the lunch special of the gemelli with chicken paired with ceaser salad or mixed greens. That way I can get my pasta fix without loading up too much on carbs by getting some veggies in. I generally hate white sauce based pastas because they usually come drenched in sauce and tasting too much of cream, butter and cheese. The gemelli is lighter with hints of thyme in the sauce and served with sauteed mushrooms. For those cheese lovers, you can always ask to have more shredded Parmesan with your pasta.

this place was a pleasant surprise. it's nice to be pleasantly surprised, ain't it? i've passed by it n' cn it, driving on solano ave., but i never tried it till that 1 fateful nite. yes, it's very affordable n' a good value. i had a vegetarian sandwich. it was very good. the pastas n' salads were also very good. it's a pretty casual place, yet the fud is not overly casual. the service is 'bout right. it's a good restaurant, n' i hope they do well. if u have a group of friends who want italian fud, but don't wanna go newhere 2 fancy but not 2 ghetto (old spaghetti factory nowadays), then u should come here.

the service and the price were great! the atmosphere is definitely casual. nice place to hang w/ your pals, because everyone can afford the food. and it's not ghetto! one thing was that i didn't like my healthy seafood that much, because it seemed a little bland. but then again, i did order something "healthy." so don't order that... and i think you'll be fine. :)

Always good food. The pastas are cooked al dente and the sauces are flavorful and varied. The salads are HUGE. The service is friendly and efficient. My only complaint would be that the room is very small and tightly packed.
