We sat out on the patio. Which was wonderful. Except for the jackhammering going on nearby. Very crowded. Waiter was good. Not great. Food was hit and miss. Some food items were very good: Try the watermelon and shrimp salad! Somethings were not so good: The calamari came highly... read more

Amazing in every way! Great restaurant to impress whomever you are with. Great food, great atmosphere, great everything!! We had the pizzas, and the calamari. If you have a party of 4, three pizzas are enough for everyone to share. They are individual sized and Incredibly delicious!! Always crowded on weekends so call ahead and make a reservation. Its worth... More

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. It has great food and service! I found it to be a little crowded and it reminded me of eating at a resturant in Europe. I would definitely return here. However, I would probably pick this resturant for a regular bight out rather than a special occasion.

I have been to multiple events in their downstairs party room called the Rococo room. I swear that one of the waiters there seems to remember me every time I show up, but I think he is just being nice. The restaurant upstairs is great. Mediterranean style food, great surroundings and excellent location. The prices are reasonable for an upscale... More

First time ever even though I live very close by. Steak was amazing! Service was very attentive and cordial. I will be back pretty soon to enjoy a nice dinner in the beautiful Pasadena. MD

I had a lunch meeting on the little old lady from Pasadena and my lunch partners needed something close to the freeways. OK. I looked up this place on Yelp and it was truly impressive in many ways. So, finding this place is not easy as it sits on the second floor like Luka. Finding my way up the stairs... More

I have been here many times and it never disappoints. For an intimate dinner or lunch with friends, the food is excellent as is the service. The seafood salad is one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

We sat on the deck overlooking Old Town Pasadena. The food was very good - my lamb shank was not the best I have ever had - but it was very good.
