Quiet setting, casual informal; live music, unique menu. Excellent service. Drinks were great. Good price: Manhattan $6.00 and nice sized. Nice mix of people. Only negative were the paper napkins! We will return. Very pleasant evening. All ages including a family

Our food was delicious. I had medium rare beef medallions in mushroom sauce with blue mashed red skin potatoes. The Redwood salad was flavorful but woefully over dressed. My daughter's Chicken Milanese was incredible. She could only eat one of the two monster panko and...More

We discovered this by ourselves, was curious about the downstairs location. Found it to have great, quiet atmosphere. Pizza was good, "California style." Drinks were good. Service was pretty good. There was local live music.
