The ambiance is very relaxed, less stuffy than sister restaurant Tuscany, and the simple food made with very fine raw materials, and the well-trained servers are always first class. We brought and opened 2010 Bessin Vamur and enjoyed bruschetta appetizer, salads (Caesar and buffalo mozzarella and heirlooms), veal Milanese and sea bass. All dishes... More

This is a weekly visit for my wife and I as well as the whole family. Family owned restaurant that makes everyone feel as a part of the family. We rarely order off the usual menu as the weekly specials are new and different. Enjoy!

A nice restaurant in a residential area of Westlake Village, CA. We have been there several times over the years and the food and the service are always very good.

Not only do you get a lot of choices -- the number of specials was amazing -- but they are very accommodating to make sure you get what you want. The fish I ordered was prepared to perfections and the roasted potatoes were the best I ever had. Desert was incredibly delicious and our waiter was very charming. My husband... More

We are from Dallas- staying in thousands oaks at the four seasons. This restaurant was very close so we gave it a try. Our waiter David was AMAXING - and the food hot the spot. We had 4 glasses of wine - salad and entrees for 79.00 . This place was a great choice for us!

My family eats here at least once a week. Mauricio prepares everything perfectly and Monica makes the best lemon drops!

Tried tripadvisor as we drove from San Diego to Santa Barbara after a long, tiring flight from Baja. As always,tripadvisor came through with a great place that was only three miles off the 101N. On a Sunday around 6:30 they seated us right away. So much better than picking a Marie Callender type place one could see from the freeway.... More

This is a very popular dining establishment among the locals. Reservation suggested! The atmosphere is upscale dining room with very polished service. The staff is well trained and has been here for a long time, they know the repeat customers. Attentive service, polished service. We often order the exceptional thin crust pizza for take out, it is healthy and delicious!... More

This restaurant has great italian food. I would give it 2 thumbs up BUT you have to have the chocolate Martini or any of the speciality drinks the bartender makes. I usually have one of the pasta's that are fresh and always good. Their pizza is also very very good. Reservations are recommended and the get shamed early.
