I have to say it: I grew up in NY, I work in NY and I go to NY for food a lot. Thus, when I eat in other cities, naturally, I compare the food to what I eat in NY. The menu was good, some creative items, but did not blow me away. The food was ok. All of... More

Maybe our expectations were too high but after a nice start, it's clear the kitchen forgot about us and while our server and the sommelier were nice about it, the manager seemed indifferent and it really made the evening completely disappointing. Didn't even stay for coffee and dessert.

Pretty restaurant with a fairly subdued atmosphere for a Saturday night at 8:30. We had the buricotta, orecchiette & octopus. I didn't love the octopus but really enjoyed the pasta and buricotta. Food was very good and worth a visit.

This restaurant did not work for our party of eight. I had a reservation through OpenTable and when we all arrived on time we were told that they had no reservation for us but that they could "still make it work." I showed my email confirmation and was told that for some reason they had me for a table at... More

This was our second visit and we were again amazed by the incredible food served by a young, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The pastas were perfectly prepared and tasted wonderful especially the soft pillows filled with sweet corn. My quail was crisply grilled, delicious and served with a well-matched wine recommended by the wine-guy who was a very helpful young... More

The menu at this restaurant offers so many marvelous options that it becomes very difficult to order and this includes a very well conceived cocktail list. The mozzarella bar offers great combinations of burrata and buffalo mozzarella. The anitpasti section had a dish called "affettati misti" which is an assortment or various charcuterie and was the best of it's kind... More

We had a big lunch so only focusing on appetizers. The prosciutto was in high quality. Mozzarella and cherry tomato was average. The octopus was grilled in perfection. We also shared the squid inked pasta with uni and crab meat. The light, little spicy source mixed well with pasta and accentuated the flavor of uni and crab meat. Portion of... More

Had such a good time at this restaurant! I am Italian and have grown up eating Italian food, but I have never experienced such explosions in flavour like I did here. Would definitely go back if I am ever in LA again, despite the somewhat steep price tag. Worth every penny for sure.
