The strong story of this local eatery is fresh food, inexpensive, big portions and large menu. 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

This restaurant is very popular in town for very good reasons; the pasta recipes are incredibly good and all at a very reasonable price. The staff is friendly and efficient with a local hometown ambience. All my friends and family love this restaurant and you will feel the same way. The servings are large and a doggie box for your...

Stopping for a bite to eat in the middle of the day, I knew what I was having for dinner! The portions are enormous and delicious and an excellent choice for a repeat later in the evening. I had the shrimp with black and white pasta and my friend had the atomic pasta. I've been here before and and I... More

A little bit hard to find, this truly IS a "out of the way neighborhood" restaurants,as it is not on a busy thoroughfare. This adds to its sweet, comfortable atmosphere. And the FOOD? Really, really delicious: imaginative ingredient combinations, large quantities (no nouveau Californian bird- peckin' food here) and delicious wines, all served by a pleasant staffer. Menu recommendations were... More

We were seated immediately and chose a great Pinot Grigio for $15.50. I had the Italian Sausage Lasagne with the famous "pink" sauce. What a... More
