“wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

my 5 star rating was very strongly influenced by the absolutely wonderful dining experience we had as a result of the service of our "wait-person", Suzi. we arrived at the restaurant early and were greeted by her... very friendly and made us feel at home immediately.
she brought the bread that they are famous for and man that stuff is addicting! i asked her for some wine pairing help and she brought me tastes of a couple of her recommendations along with a small taste of the food that i was trying to pair with. we have been to some of the finest restaurants across the country and i have never had this offered before. there is no better way to pair a wine! so the wines we drank were paired perfectly with both appetizer and main courses.
all of us agreed that it was a most special evening- the food was very good, the wines perfect and all because of Suzi's interest in her customers-we will be back!

“"The Best Italian Restaurant" in Long Beach, CA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2011

I have been driving past this restaurant for years on my way to the dental office. So I decided to explore. And what a great restaurant. First of all, it is has a very neighborhood feel to it. The service was outstanding. The portions were great and reasonably priced. You can always grade an Italian restaurant by the garlic bread that is served with the meal. This is a great place for a date. Parking is minimum. They do not take reservations. I had dinner at 6:00 on a Sat. with no wait. Having been to most of the Italian restaurants in LB, this one is on the top of my list.

Love that they have free cheesy garlic bread. The rest of the food is average. Good dinner deals on weeknights.
