This was our second time to this restaurant. Although it was a chilly evening, outdoor heaters were perfect for a cozy semi-private table for two, outdoors around the corner in front of the glass. I ordered the Fettuccini Alfredo minus the Chicken. I am really grateful the sauce was not a heavy white cream sauce. It was more on the... More

Again, arrived during rainiest weather in years for Southern California. Had ventured out in between rain bursts to have a wind down cocktail before finding a local BBQ place nearby. Unfortunately that restaurant was closed and decided to try this Italian restaurant. The waiter couldn't have been more pleasant and with few out and about that evening, seemed respectful of...

The ambiance at this beautiful little Italian bistro, tucked against the Mission Inn, is both romantic and reminiscent of old world Italy. My wife met a client there and was immediately texting me that we had to have a romantic interlude that night. I arrived and with one look at the stone columns and strung lights, my hopes began to...

Had a family dinner here, beautiful place! The service was minimal. Can I get you anything to start? Are you ready to order? Can I get you anything else? Then the check. The pasta dishes were pretty good. My kids ordered caprese salads and they were terrible. There was a mix of heirloom tomatoes that were either mush or not... More

We went there during the Festival of Lights. Although we had reservations, our parties were seated at separate tables. As a vegetarian, I opted for the pizza, which was fair at best. The garden salad was very good. My husband loved his chicken pasta. Service was excellent. I would not return.

We went on Christmas Day and it turned out to be an excellent experience. We sat outside on the patio for an early dinner. We enjoyed people watching and the festive holiday lights. It was very romantic and cozy and we got lucky to have Santa Claus to come to our table to greet us. It was a magical dining... More

Took my girlfriend to have an early dinner. It was very cold and windy. The hostess sat us at a table outside while she was telling us how warm it was next to the propane heater. We waited for a few minutes for a waiter/waitress to arrive. The wind was gusting and it was freezing outside. So finally a waiter... More
