Friendly, upbeat place

Dropped in for lunch and had a great time and a great meal. Young staff that takes a great interest in their customers. Very good food and a descent price. Good place for a fast, casual lunch.

This is part of a large chain which in years past offered decent food for the price. However, they seem to have gone the "sports bar" routine rather than the family Italian they once were. After some years without trying this place I dropped in for lunch. I was surprised that the décor had changed to minimalist, with big screen... More

Their to-go service is great! I come hear at least 2 times a week since I work at the mall. The servers are always so friendly and prompt when I pick up my order.

Poor quality food and outdoor seating. Food used to be better! We sat at the outdoor patio at the California Pizza Kitchen in Brea and it was messy and chairs were plastic and uncomfortable. Also dined at the Palm Desert location. More comfortable but food still lacking on quality.

So much variety in outstanding salads and pizzas, plus fun appetizers, soup (try two in a bowl!). I alternate between Italian Chopped Salad, BBQ Chicken Salad, Moroccan Salad, Waldorf, Thai Crunch--each is unique, well-constructed with freshness and quality ingredients. Love the wait staff--they treat us like they're actually glad to serve us. :) Outdoor seating--yes, it overlooks a parking lot... More

I think I've tried just about all the salads the only one I didn't like was the Thai salad too many carrots & red cabbage. But, my favorite is the BBQ chicken chopped salad or the Cobb!! Delicious! The thin crust pizzas are great: Artichoke & spinach, hawaiian with bacon is better than the regular Hawaiian! You can't go wrong... More

The ingredients were fresh. The pasta dishes were really good. The pizzas had just enough stuff on them so that the pizza stayed in one piece. Service was very good.

Good food, decent prices, good service. Although they stopped carrying my favorites--Marsala linguini and Thai fettuccine--they still have a good selection and all very tasty. I love the Thai crunch salad and my husband loves the tomato basil spaghettini. yum, me too.Their pizza's are great also with a good selection.
