Very good food, reasonable price, no corkage fee!

Went on a Wednesday night - seats readily available at 7pm. Between the 4 of us, had the cioppino (special), chicken marsala, spaghetti bolognese. The ciopponio was great! We asked for spicy and they did it perfectly. Nice mix of seafood, including a small lobster tail. Chicken & spaghetti very... read more

We stayed across the street and chose little Italy because there wasn't many other options. Once inside we were very impressed with the atmosphere. The food was priced great and tasted wonderful. Towards the end of our meal we met Amador the manager and told him how much we loved the place. He become a friend by the end of... More

Oldworld feel. Pizza ovens are visable (and smell-able!) from the front door. Decor is simple, nothing special, but the food is fresh and delicious and very fairly priced. Well worth a 15-20 minute wait for a seat.

Great little Italian restaurant. Service was good, food was good however, the food could have been hotter. Still the taste was good. Prices are very reasonable. Great restaurant for family, casual dress, quick sit down dinner. Great for the locals or those on their way to LAX who want to stop, have time and want a nice meal. Small restaurant... More

I went for lunch the Friday before Labor Day and when I was seated there were still more waitstaff than guests, so service was excellent. This place is very small (less than 50 seats total) and the "kitchen" is merely an area partitioned off the indoor dining area, so I expect orders might be slow in coming when the restaurant...

Went her for dinner with my husband on a Thursday night. We were seated right away, but the table was right next to the pantry and bathrooms so it smelled kind of funny whenever the doors opened. The whole place is quite little, which is charming, unless you are at the table by these doors. The food was good. Not... More

We immediately greeted upon arriving and shown to a table. I was on a time schedule to catch a flight and we passed this info onto our server upon sitting down. He was there at just the right time with beverages, waters, our dinners and the bill. Food was fabulous. Fresh, seasoned perfectly and cooked to perfection. Would definitely go... More

Visited this resturant on Tuesday night while in town on business. Arrived a little before 7PM without a reservation. Table for two seated within 10 minutes. Waiter appreared within minutes with bread, oil and balsamic. Took our wine order...I'd recommend the Sangeovese. Returned a few minutes later with the wine and to take our dinner request. I enjoy simple food... More
