“Not Just Thin Pizza and Pasta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

I seem to recall when this little SOHO spot was a place to pop in for pizza (thin) and good pasta. The menu now will thrill health-conscious South Tampans with its "Make Your Own salads", stirfries, and California bowls.

“Great food for something different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Wonderful restaurant for some different cuisine. Staff is extremely friendly. Danielle our server was as sweet as can be while giving us wonderful service. On our first visit, the manager gave us a free dessert for visiting. Lots of energy here with live music playing while we were there for dinner. Delicious California bowls with lots of choices. I would come back here again if I am in the area again.

“Everything except the food is average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Since the first reason one usually goes to a restaurant is to eat, the food trumps all other "issues". As other reviewers have commented, the food and selection really is good (and fresh). Dishes tried were chicken citrus salad and seared tuna with broccoli and potato.

When full, however, this place isn't for intimate dinning (party loud) and service can be slow.
However, the restaurant earned another circle by improving its service after a complaint that was personally dealt with by the manager.

Pricing was quite reasonable.

“A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

My son moved nearby a few months ago and has been here a few times. We arrived during a busy Friday night, but only had to wait about 15 minutes. I was certainly impressed with the menu. I am trying to eat right and this restaurant made that an easy thing to do. I ordered the bowl special of the night. It tasted so fresh and light. The waiter was quite helpful. Since it was our first time (for my husband and myself), the manager came over to give us a free tiramisu. It was delicious! We were also given a few coupons and were asked to return. What a friendly place serving great food!
