We've been going here for quite some time. I'm not sure why, but this place has gotten good again in the last few months. Food is the creative side of "comfort" dishes. Well prepared and interesting choices. Good drinks. High noise level is a bit of a problem but can be overcome at the right tables. We like to bring guests from out of town here because it is a way to get introduced to the Castro neighborhood that works for everyone. Short ribs were terrific. Pizzas very simple and good. Service was kind of chummy and informal but it suits the mood of the place. It's a fun spot where everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. We recommend it. Enjoy!
