This restaurant is like going back to the little neighborhood Italian restaurants of my childhood. Checkered tablecloths, raffia Chianti bottles hanging on the ceiling, small red leatherette booths and exuberant decor, with wonderful food. My Uncle Joe (Giovanni) would fit right in with the crowd. We went for a family dinner and I had Veal Marsala prepared the way it... More

Delicious food. Crazy busy place! We had reservations thankfully and they were good about getting us seated on time. The food is authentic Italian. It is all booths, red checkered table cloths. Delish. Just go do it.

I still fantasize about it....ah! Best ever! Oh, and also amazingly fun people watching. The food and ambience is so special, most definitely if you are looking to recapture the L. A. essence of our past mid century.

Arrived on time for a reservation but had to settle for a table in the passage way. Overflow crowd at the bar or waiting for tables became so large my chair was being banged constantly. This is not the 'old Hollywood' crowd that is suggested of this place. Young, loud, entitled and rude is how I would characterize the patrons.... More

We walked out. The staff were rude. The place was packed and other customers kept banging into our table. It isn't hip. There are no celebrities, just rude people, outdated ambiance, and absolutely terrible service.

I love Italian food. I've read the reviews for this place and it was hit or miss. Since I went on a Tuesday night, and my dinner companion wanted to go there-I gave it a try. Upon entering, when I told the tuxedo clad host that my guest was on his way, he greeted me with an aloof, "where is... More

Went on a Sunday night at 7:30 and the bar and restaurant was packed. I would say at least 50% of the people in there were locals (celebs and industry). If you want a drink at the bar you will have to fight your way and order. The maitre d is a jovial guy who clearly has seen it all.... More

This place is the real authentic old hollywood ofyester year. You enter into a very dark,cramped small dining room that transports you back in time. The barcrowd is something that needs to be experienced as I'm at a loss for words to describe it. The steaks are terrific and served with a side ofpasta. I love the cesar salad or... More

The happiness factor for me at this iconic resto is the old school vintage atmosphere...red and white table cloths, rattan covered wine bottles hanging from the ceiling, booths, career waiters in proper waiter attire, etc. It's got a big red sauce, New York Italian vibe and if you order the steak you are taking part of it home unless you...

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
