Chef James is a culinary virtuoso, particularly skilled in crafting mouthwatering pasta dishes and the most delicious mushrooms you'll find in San Francisco. His ability to source fresh, local ingredients from the farmers market is truly impressive. I highly recommend experiencing his culinary magic for an unforgettable dining adventure.

We had a wonderful time, the chef is warm and welcoming. He was a terrific teacher and we made the best gnocchi we have ever eaten! Great attention to detail and homey elegant atmosphere
