Busy little place - nice pizza

Very busy - hd to wait 10 mins for a table to be available - a bit squashed but great atmosphere and fast efficient and friendly service. Reasonably priced and good quality food

We've eaten here as a family a few times. It's a great family restaurant. It's very popular, despite the mediocre food, so get there early. Kids love eating here for the many pastas and breads and pizza. I personally find the food to be way too full of oils and butter. I order the light meals to get past this,... More

it was ok. I didn't see what all the hype was about. I ordered the seafood lasagna. It was more cheese than anything. The few shrimp that I did find in it were very small. A friend had the tortellini and was happy. Another friend had the spaghetti and meatballs. I can say that the meatballs are huge. I saw... More

Delicious food, and great service! I ordered the sauteed spinach ravioli with marinara sauce, and it was wonderful. Our party was given complimentary bread and a complimentary ravioli tray to snack on while we waited for our food. When we were done with our meal, our server brought us complimentary cookies. We arrived at 5:00 for dinner and were seated... More

Family Italian in the heart of Manhattan Beach. Service is incredibly friendly, pizza and pasta are very good. Nice list of Wines by the glass. Very child-friendly. Very good food - not the most amazing meal we've ever had, but given the location and the very reasonable prices, it definitely deserves 5 stars from a value for money perspective.

We came upon this restaurant as we were wandering Manhattan Beach. What a great find! Great pasta, very friendly service, they made us feel very welcome. When one of our meals wasn't quite right, they took it away and made it right. The restaurant is intimate, and even mid-afternoon, was quite full. If we ever get back to Manhattan Beach,... More

We've been there a couple times it's a really good family restaurant. Not a big place though typical beach community size. We all had spaghetti and shared a pizza. Good food moderately priced.

The place was kid friendly, my 3 year old got to make his own pizza, and our meals were amazing the flavors just melted in our mouths. Lobster raviolis with their famous pink sauce was to die for. The Chef walked around making sure everyone was doing okay, which I have never experienced in my life and thought that was... More
