Large portions

Good food with huge portions. I had the chicken parmeggiana which took up the whole plate...the pasta had to go on a separate dish! Everyone enjoyed their food.

Free parking can be found around the corner from the restaurant while valet is available in front. We were seated and were not approached for service until I visited the... More

We asked our concierge where to go for Italian food and he suggested this restaurant. We got there early because we have baby. It's a good thing we did because the place was packed and there was a line up with an hour's wait when we left the restaurant. That's always a good sign. The food was excellent. I had... More

It took over an hour to get our food. We had 2 drinks but then asked for water and were snubbed. Service was terrible and the food was so/so.

I had read great reviews on this restaurant and wanted to try it when we were staying in Hollywood before our cruise. We went for lunch on a Friday and it was surprising slow.

Wasn't very pleased with the food. Was expecting more delicious meal because usually we don't go wrong with italian . Something was missing in the sauce for my pasta. It did not have much of flavor. Ambience was dull ( not good music either ). Service was pretty good.
