Authentic Italian in Newport Beach

This was a wonderful restaurant we happened to find. They managed our party of 8 with no problem. Our waiter was prompt and courteous with a good sense of humor. Bread and oil were already on the table when we were seated. The bread was very good and a nice compliment to the Caesar Salad I ordered... read more

What an excellent meal. The zucchini soup of the day was excellent. The sea bass was a superb main course and the homemade pasta was heavenly. The service was top notch. The atmosphere was so friendly and just perfect for my family. Will definitely return. What a treat!

Our server was friendly and attentive but our pizza with artichokes, olives, and ham wasn't as good as we'd hoped for. The crust looked to uniform in shape to be homemade and the dough was soggy from the sauce. The caesar salad was good. Maybe the pastas are better!

Stopped here while on business. The food was awesome and the service was great! Being from the South, I wanted sweet tea and this was the only place I found while in California that had good sweet tea. It was a bit weak but still better than anywhere else! The food was amazing!! It is a bit pricey but well... More

Sophisticated Italian cooking specializing in farro (a nutty tasting grain) dishes but offering most of the classics as well. We had a spanking fresh bronzino and luscious veal marsala, generous portions well prepared. European atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. Moderately priced for the quality of the cuisine. Best for dinner as the lunch menu is the same as dinner.

Ate here based on reviews and couldn't have been more happy. My husband got the lasagna and I got a pizza. Both were great. Would go again for sure.

My husband and I tried this place based on a groupon we purchased. The pace is super cute and the food was great. But what really put it over the top was our waitress. I believe her name was Kriss. She was AMAZING, so personable and bubbly. She was pure joy. I would definitely go back just for her :)

We ate here because of the great reviews on TA. There were 7 of us for dinner. Waitor got my sister and I's order wrong. 4/7 did not enjoy their meals (steak, veal and sea bass). The other 3 were indifferent (mushroom ravioli and aurora pasta). It is always a red flag for me when the menu is loaded with... More

I love the food here, the Carpaccio, and the panacotta are wonderful! The main dishes are excellent and are worth the wait in the summer months. If you don't like to wait for a table, then off-season is your best bet!
