C'era Una Volta brings a taste of Italy to the Island City of Alameda with delicious Tuscan and regional Italian dishes and an extensive Italian wine list.

If Food Shift founder and director Dana Frasz and Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) Executive Director Doug Biggs get their wish, the families who live at APC will have one more resource to help them overcome some of the challenges they face.
