Good Pizza Even Better Pasta

There were nine of us on a Friday evening, and even though we had reservations, we still waited 20 minutes for our table. The restaurant was packed with several parties waiting outside, so I guess the wait was understandable given the crowd. We ordered the arugula and baby mixed salads, a porco... read more

Good Italien beer, really good tasting ravioly shrimp with cheese and roasted garlic...awesome. Pizza was absolute fantastic. I'm from Europe and I know how real pizza should taste like. Thumbs up!

Why? Because you want to try just about anything and everything on the menu. Or just come back again and again if there is less than a lot of you! Christiano and his team are producing extraordinary food. I've been coming here regularly since it opened a few years ago. As my family and friends have said over and over... More

The food continues to be amazing. The location needs more parking or get there early in the weekends. I love thin crust pizzas. Had the arugula salad.... Yummmmm. The event of the evening? The service is by far thee best in a long time. They had a host, a Busser that I tipped because he was so on top of... More

I went in for a takeout, and while I was waiting, they brought me some garlic rolls. This was my first time there so I was pleasantly surprised with the service and the flavor. Never did I expect to find an authentic Italian restaurant in Monterey Park!

Ok. So we get there, a party of three. I looked around and there was new servers, two food runners and one Busser. Still, no host/hostess. They so desperately need a maitre'd or host/ hostess or manager, lead server, something to structure their service quality. We were the only ones waiting to be sat and a couple of tables open....

Ok, this review is kind of hard for me to write because, I have not been there in six months and I do not plan on returning anytime soon. The Pizza is good here. The owner has no business sense. He treats his Pizzas as "Art" Please, you cannot eat "Art", if i wanted "Art" I would go to a... More

I decided to try this place for the pasta and ordered the sausage and peppers variation. Couldn't see the sausage, but it did look more like ground beef. The taste was okay but nothing out of this world. I ended up eating the pasta but left a lot of the meat behind. Aside from the food, the waitress was excellent... More

We live locally and our family of 5 love this place! The pasta, salads, entrees, ber selection, wine selection... Every food gem has been Awesome! Unfortunately this place really needs a Matre'd or a floor manager. Maybe a lead server... Someone who will make are all tables are being sat in a timely manner, tables are being cleared.
