This is a very nice Northern Italian place in a strip mall across from the Marin Hotel that used to house a Japanese restaurant called Nobe. The night we were there (Fri., 8 p.m.) there was a surprising lack of customers. The food is very well prepared and presented, although portions are not huge. The service was quite attentive, almost too much so as there were numerous waiters and busboys with not much to do. This restaurant deserves better. Give it a try if you are in the area.
