We had a great dinner here! Everything looked wonderful but we went with the suggestions of our waiter and all of our dishes were amazing! The staff was attentive, knowledgable, and very friendly.

Typically the food is good. I had an expensive lunch of chicken fettuccine. $20.00. lunch portion was really small. They don't serve this on the menu and now I know why. Chicken was so dry. The noodles and sauce were not good.

We visited on a Saturday evening for a nice dinner out. Our toddler was in rare form, and everyone seemed to go out of their way to help alleviate the situation. Our dinner was fantastic! I recommend the sea bass cooked and served in parchment paper. My fiancé had the angel hair pasta made spicy, and it was also great.... More

This place takes be back to Italy - I travel several hours out of my way just to go to these restaurants. They are all unique but the food is similar and top notch. We haven't had a none Superior dish yet all fantastic and the Pizza is just like in Italy!

I have eaten at this location and the one near LAX airport. While I am more of a traditional family style Italian fan, the food here has been... More

I had the pasta with seafood and it was wonderful, fresh seafood, great sauce. The desert was marvelous. My wife had the veal and it was very good. It's a bit pricy but worth it.

Excellent from start to finish. The food, staff, and ambience are all top notch. Helpful suggestions, as the menu choices were hard to narrow down (everything sounded amazing). The Caesar salad was the only semi disappointing factor due to the tiny number of croutons. We were never rushed and enjoyed a very special evening out. We are thrilled we gave... More
