We didn’t feel like cooking on New Years Eve, so decided to try this place. Our son and his wife reported consistently seeing lines at this restaurant at dinner time. We we’re thankful that we came early: by 6:00 PM there were no tables available! Food and wine were outstanding! Service by Elené was excellent. Popularity is well deserved! See... More

Nice food ! Waiters are very friendly and the food comes out of the kitchen real fast. Good size dishes that can be shared. Deserves being ranked best Italian in Santa Monica.

My husband ordered the... More

The key that keeps me going back, is you can bring your own wine into dinner for $2 per person corkage; surely a great deal. They do have their own reasonably priced wine list too. Lastly, no reservations and there can sometimes be a... More

Went here on a date Saturday night after walking the pier and driving through Malibu. We were seated after a small wait of 15 minutes. I got the chicken parmensana hermosa and my date got the pasta New Orleans. We really shared our dishes and both were delicious. Our server was named Amanda I think and she was the best.... More
