Useful information


Opened by a husband-and-wife team just a few doors down from their wine shop (Bay Grape), this alluring spot has that simple yet chic look down pat. Envision a dark green ceiling, brass-and-glass chandeliers, and live plants scattered throughout. The premise is simple—a reasonably priced, three-course dinner and there are no reservations. Choose one of two options for each course—like a soup or salad tailed by pasta and dessert. Items change often, but one constant is the spaghetti, which also served as the inspiration behind this establishment. Presented as a hearty portion, the twirled mound is tossed with Mama's tomato sugo, featuring braised pork and beef. 
The wine list is full of interesting labels and employs symbols for easier navigation.
