I have been an infrequent guest here for the past 2 years, but went back recently for lunch, and they have not missed a beat. The service can be erratic in terms of level of experience of the servers, but they are always attentive. The food is wonderful. The Rock pizza, Gnocchi Pesto, and the Carbonara are all highlights. Everything... More

On travel in the area for business and went here on the suggestion of a coworker. First thought was that there was no way we were finding good authentic Italian food in this area of town. Was I forever wrong! I ordered the calzone which came with ham, mushrooms, onions, cheese and sauce and I had them add arugula. The... More

This is a great spot for real Italian food. The location is a little different. It's in the middle of warehouses and industrial type places but it's worth the drive and there's something about the location that feels like you're in on some secret place or hidden gem. Fresh well prepared food for all meals. Breakfast is a great deal... More

My daughter lives in Gardena and suggested that we give this place a try as she had heard good things about it. Let me say that the ambiance was just terrific. The ceiling must be about fifteen feet high, and the way the tables were set up truly reminded me of something you might find in Italy. The waiter was... More

Restaurant is in an industrial area, small parking lot. Best to find street parking. Lunch is busy, a little loud. No booths, tables are close together. Pizza is very good, really thin crust, very light. Fish was surprisingly good. Recommend sharing a pizza & a pasta dish.

Like this place and have been several times for lunch and once for dinner. Pizza is very thin and tasty. The atmosphere is almost "industrial" but different in a cool way. Parking can be a hassle. Would definitiely recommend this restaurant for lunch and probably dinner.

So a friend of mine asks if I want to have lunch yesterday and I agree, since I was going to be in Gardena that day. As I am driving in the industrial area, and almost pass the restaurant, I make a hard left and into the small parking lot. Unfortunately parking is limited and tight but there is street... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults 4&7 yr olds) visited this place based on trip advisor reviews. All of the positive reviews were accurate. Family fun atmosphere complete with gelato bar with sample tasting for kids & adults (so many delicious choices). Informal fun warehouse type atmosphere, where the kids can view food preparation and service. If you want candles... More
