Some of the you real locals know how much hassle Dave Armanino went through to open the space next to the original Il Piccolo. As I understand it, the city's hands were pretty much tied by excessive regulation from the state. If you are reading any real news (i.e. something other than the SF Comicle and SJ Mercury News), you know that Sac is basically anti-business at this point.
Well, perseverance pays. I saw this sign over the weekend that indicates breakfast and lunch will finally be served starting on Friday, Oct. 4th. Kudos to Dave. I hope we can continue our discussion about a locally-oriented wine happy hour once you get this phase running smoothly. This isn't the best photo, but you get the point.
