Good food

Don't let the "hole in the wall" feeling from the street turn you off, as the food was great. The only drawback for those that drink you will need to bring your own booze (BYOB).

This place is fantastic!! Well priced, generous portions, and the best food ever! Cute "hole in the wall" feel, but very clean. Attentive servers...and the best minestrone soup I've ever tasted! Also their chicken marsala is to die for.

We went there on a Tuesday night and had a great experience. The Italian hostess was very nice with our group and even practiced her French with us :) The food was very, very good. Also nice to see the chef in his kitchen just a few feet away. Highly recommended.

We were 9 and had no reservation. We had a place within 5 minutes. I had the Strogonoff pasta, they were just awesome. We also had the calamari in appetizer and it was delicious. My kids loved the Bolognese pastas and my friends had the Risoto & Parmigiana Chicken - they loved it also. We had a great time &... More

I had "Spaghetti Alle Vongole" in red sauce, it was wonderful, ate every single bite, felt like my own cooking! The serving is very generous, everyone should experience this wonderful meal!

The restaurant doesn't look great on the outside but once inside, it is nice, The food was delicious, The server recommended the Calamari which was very flavorful - not the usual fried and greasy Calamari, My son had the spaghetti and I had the salmon, The server was not very attentive but the food runner was very friendly and attentive.

Absolutely delicious food! They have a basil hummus dip that is my all time favorite!! I ordered their pecan encrusted king cod & my husband ordered the risotto with beef. Both were exceptional. Our only hiccup was our waiter, he wrote down lasage instead of ling cod which caused a small problem in the kitchen but the chef handled it... More

Went here with friends for lunch upon their recommendation. Wait staff was attentive and took our drink orders right away. I'm not sure if the AC wasn't working but our repeated request to turn up either the ceiling fans or AC was not addressed. You have to have a working AC in LA! It's a must! Both weren't addressed.

I have been coming to this restaurant since 2011. The service and Owner has always been so warm and welcoming! His Bolognese sauce is out of this world. Get it on his Tagliatelle, lasagna, or whatever he has it with on the menu. The calamari is so tender and fresh, that you need nothing but a fork to eat it.... More

Food and service were outstanding. One thing we wish we knew was that they don't serve alcohol, but they do allow you to bring your own bottle of wine. Atmosphere leaves something to be desired, but the food more than made up for that.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
