Outstanding service, food & reasonably priced! Homemade pastas, (including gnocchi), & their sauces are light & well seasoned.

The meal was very good and the service excellent. We had 6 different meals and we shared tastes of each. The seafood ravioli was excellent and the best of all! Get there early and on time for a reservation as it is packed and they will not seat you until everyone is there. Parking is an issue, especially on weekends!

We called ahead and made reservations as this Italian restaurant had good ratings. It is nestled in a busy location; park on the street instead of doing circles in parking lot. The manager/ owner got us seated quickly. The pizza was excellent, the atmosphere was calming, cheerful and friendly. Clean, homemade dishes, and a focus on healthy eating. Try it... More

After strolling Laguna Beach we and our cousins, who are local to Irvine, wanted something less pretentious for an early Saturday dinner than, say, a high end see-and-be-seen spot at Fashion Island. So we recalled this old favorite on the Newport peninsula. It was early 5:30, so a 6:00 pm table for four was easy. In fact, the place was... More
