I’d rather talk to someone on the phone for the reservation. I’m 96 yrs old and had to have my daughter complete the reservation

Been going to the location in the Highlands for years first time to this location. Same delicious food, same great service, a great experience as always. The waiter brought my husband the wrong pasta dish and were gracious and left the incorrect dish while preparing the correct dish. Great amount of outdoor seating.

Alfredo was an incredible server - so knowledgeable and kind and helpful and delightful. Food was great. Of course because seating is along Sunset, there is street noise and homeless people, but still a wonderful evening.

Excellent food. Consistently good with varying specials. Service could be a bit more attentive but might be short-staffed. Will continue to go there.

The food and service were great! The hubby had the lamb shank and I enjoyed Fettucini with scampi. I only wished the street noise wasn't so prominent (we sat outside, on Sunset Blvd), and they were renovating the building, so there were ugly patches all over it, otherwise I would have given the experience 5 stars!

The outside dining area is quaint and conducive to having a pleasant experience. I am Italian and have very high standards. The calamari fritti was DEEELICIOUS. Same for the spaghetti bolognese! The salads were very good too. Service was excellent as well. You cannot go wrong eating at this restaurant.

The biggest problem we had was deciding what to eat: so many exciting choices. We ordered from among the specials, and both of us were delighted with our meals.

3 out of 4 entrees were presented and we were told to wait a few minutes for the 4th. Clearly the kitchen screwed up and forgot this dish and hurried it through. The pasta was inedible as it was so undercooked to be almost crunchy. We sent it back only to have the chef microwave it to cook it more, causing the carbonara sauce to emulsify and become further inedible. The restaurant, to their credit, deducted it from our bill and comped us a round of drinks however the damage was done and the experience was a lousy one. I suspect the chef who cooks here on Mondays is a different one than on weekends as the previous two meals we had here were quite good.

Friday night, food was excellent, service was prompt but not pushy, the patio was full but the noise level was low enough to allow normal conversation at our table. Had crabcake appetizer, then two of the specials and two from the menu and everyone was very happy with their meal.

We drove all the way from Culver City, and it was very disappointing.

Place is adorable. Food just wasn’t there tonight. Caesar salad was great. Pasta dishes and red sauce just not up to the example set by the original in The Highlands

There were 6 of us for dinner and everyone was very happy with the food. The wait staff was very attentive without being intrusive. They have created a very pleasant outdoor space which has been expanded during the pandemic.
