Our friends and I walked over to Alessa's from downtown for dinner, it was our first time at this restaurant, I've been to the Newport one quite a few times with friends & it's always been good. Same with this one but this one is a bit nicer. Because we came pretty late, almost 9 pm on Saturday they quickly... More

I'm not really sure why people think that if something is over priced, it Must be the best, but that seems to be the type who rave on and on about this place. We were excited to try it when it first opened, and were deeply disappointed, the risotto was gummy, the artichoke tasted canned and the veal was tough... More

This is a great place to take a date...the atmosphere is cozy, the food is great. I suggest the sausage pizza or calamari for an appetizer. Their pasta dishes are great. If your lucky and get a chance to sample the Chilean Sea Bass I would recommend it as well. The pasta is fresh and the staff are friendly and... More

This is hands down my favorite Italian restaurant. Whether your out for an adult evening or dining with the whole family this place never disappoints. The squash ravioli is amazing and my husband loved their chicken parmesan.

I had eaten at their sister property in Newport Beach last year, and actually accidentally booked my reservation at this location this year. But it turned out to be a bit of a blessing as this location is quite a bit bigger, and a quieter ambiance allowed for ease of conversation. Food is excellent at both, our selections included chicken... More

Excellent service and food. Great menu selections with all of the Italian staples. Wonderful cheese and meat selection. Quiet restaurant. Past all of the craziness of Main Street.

We were guests with a party of about 40 family and friends. The service was exceptional with that many people. Our wine & water glasses kept full if desired. The food was better than most Italian restaurants I have visited. Not my favorite cuisine. If you are in Huntington Beach looking for good Italian food I would recommend it. Only... More
