After a long day on Venice Beach, we were craving authentic Italian food and a nice atmosphere. We couldn't of been happier with this choice. I had the spaghetti, and my wife had the braised short rib rigatoni. With red wine and we finished with tiramisu for dessert. We would highly recommend it and visit again.

Small intimate Italian restaurant. Owner on site to help with choices from menu. Most produce local but fine foods are imported from Italy and the west coast. Pumpkin ravioli were not the sweet cloying kind served in some places, but were fresh with a delightful sauce. Lasagna was full of flavor. wine list great. Parking is always a challenge in... More

We were recommended by an Italian lady living in Marina del Mar. This restaurant is on a very busy main road, and you would not look twice as you drive past. STOP This is a wonderful trattoria with beautifully cooked food.

As you enter from busy Lincoln Avenue, it's hard to imagine what delights await you in this quaint authentic Italian Bistro. As my friend Frenchie 1946 said it really felt like being in Italy. The owner is a charming host, and the food is just wonderful.The homemade pastas are great. My favorite is the Truffle pasta. Most recently, we had... More

My wife and I have seen this Italian restaurant on Lincoln many times for at least a year. We have both said that "we should go there." Well, finally, we did. We went last weekend. Unfortunately, we went on a Friday night, and with no reservations. We walked into the front of the restaurant which is literally on the sidewalk... More

This little restaurant is delightful for a special treat. The food is authentically Italian (plus a few variations) and tastes wonderful. The service is also very Italian-like, as is the whole, intimate atmosphere. We will be happy to return one day. The only down-side is the lack of spirits for anyone who wants a drink other than wine or beer.... More
