Very posh with excellent butternut squash raviolli paired with a pinot griogio! This restaurant also participates in the yearly Wine Walk of Ventura the first week of December each year and usually offer a good wine tasting experience. Also a great place to dance at night with a DJ taking requests in the back.

We were here for a business dinner. I like my colleagues, but I don't like sitting in their lap or being held captive because the table is way too large for the booth and you end up squeezed in. The majority of the seating is booth-based and we won't be coming back because of it, which is too bad because... More

We were a party of 8 - and although the room was nice and the service was good, the overall "dining experience" was average. I was not so impressed with the Italian selections or the flavor of a few items. The veal ordered medium rare - was well done. We were in the back private room..in which we were grateful... More

We heard about this restaurant from a man we met on the boat to Santa Cruz island. He said this was one of the best Italian restaurant he went recently, and we decided to have dinner after the cruise. We ordered a grilled shrimp for starter, a pizza, pasta, and grilled salmon. Everything was great, and my kids also enjoyed... More

My son and I were in town for the weekend for a road race. We had a relaxed lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had the pasta Arrabiata, my son the pizza margarita. Mine was excellent, just the right level of spice combined with a smooth olive oil base. My son's must have been good because he insisted we return... More

We went for a drink last night and there is a musty smell very noticeable near the bar and front of the restaurant. The drinks and food were good but we left because the smell was very unpleasant. There are concrete floors in the restaurant that look like the sealer has worn off and they have become very dirty over... More

Have eaten here a number of times. Nice ambiance! Food is generally good - the cioppino is a favorite. They have an "overflow" dining room which I prefer not to be seated in. They generally have music going on by the bar which is usually too loud for dining.

I thought that their menu was a little limited, but all the food was very good. They had a private room you could get for large groups.
