507 Capitol Way South, Olympia, WA 98501

Overall Rating


OMG I’m obsessedddddd yall!!!! I ordered the calamari and side zucchini mash + an Italian old fashioned x 2 + tiramisu dessert and WOWZA. The food is worth every penny. The tiramisu is the BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. I have no idea what they put in there but the taste, texture, everything is freaking exquisite!!!! My mouth waters thinking about it! Absolutely delicious, and I appreciate the aesthetics and presentation of the meals. Also, super cool that they serve you the tastiest gf bread with hummus and olive oil for your appetizer. The drink was divine (hence why I had 2). The owner/chef is celiac and he plays no games - he came to serve the freshest and best meal options and did not skimp on taste. There are so many gf options you don’t have to worry - even the dessert menu is 80% gf. Finally, the customer service is what really takes it over the top. I was here alone for a military trip and the server really made me feel welcome and fabulous. They can take all my money!!! Love them!!!!!
