Set in a 1909 Colonial-style house, this elegant restaurant oozes romance, thanks to its Victorian décor, candlelight and intimate rooms. Since 1987, Italian Bruno Serato—who was actually born in France—has earned a loyal following for his Northern Italian cuisine with some French items thrown in. Many dishes are named for celebrities (some no longer with us). A poached salmon with white-chocolate-infused mashed potatoes is a popular menu item. A good selection of Californian and European wines pair nicely with the restaurant’s menu.
