The waitress was very friendly and explained all the options we had. My colleagues wanted a salad arranged in his way and this was made without any hesitation. The food was really good and tasty. The service was quick and efficient despite the late hour.

If you ever find yourself in the Oakland airport area, try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed. I had the most simple of dishes, spaghetti with Italian sausage. Outstanding! Good service, good food. I'll definitely be back!

I've been eating here for years and it is always good. Not exceptional, but good. There is very little in this area and it is apparent why they are always busy. Good food and service along with consistency= good place. The price is right and...More
