The food at the restaurant is high quality, very Italian but on the pricey side for a family. I would definately recommend for a special date night or celebration. Great service, a little loud, but a fun night out!

We tried this restaurant recently and were disappointed in the food but charmed by the setting and the wait staff. The restaurant is tiny with the kitchen open to the dining area. We ordered the pasta each with two sauces. Although this is an interesting option, the sauces ran together so you don't really get to taste the differences in... More

When you walk into the restaurant you are taken back in time. Feels like Italy. The food was wonderful. We had the noodles with white sauce and an Italian sausage. Enjoy all there is with this place.

Dined here 4 times in the last two months. It's very small, friendly, casual, inexpensive, fun and even romantic. Food is two steps above average. The chef is happy to oblige with, in my case, a bit more spice.

This restaurant's food is over priced and mediocre. Given a choice I would probably go to Olive Garden instead. Tried it twice and never again.

This is a relatively teeny place hidden off the street in The Village. Relatively limited menu and not extremely imaginative cooking. Mostly Italian. Good for small groups. You could take over the entire place but might have to start fairly late. Think they still are doing two sittings a night.

The staff was very friendly and the service was very good. The spaghetti sauce had too much oregano. There was too much parmesean cheese on salad and bread. Just not very authentic Italian. It was only OK.

We went with family group of 9 after an event at Pomona College. From the outside, it looked like a quaint little Italian place. Once seated, the busboy brought water and spilled glass of ice water on my dad and my daughter. Busboy apologized, but waiter never acknowledged the blunder. After we ordered a bottle of wine, the waiter disappeared... More
