All of us had delicious food on our second visit! While we live many miles away, when we visit Santa Monica, we want to visit here. The option of picking the pasta and the sauce appeals to me, others in our party were happy with their choices as well. This is a friendly place with excellent service and food!

They had gluten free pasta which was brilliant and it was by far the best value for money with giant portions. The meat is very good quality. The decor is not fancy but the food made up for that! We left a generous tip and the person serving us was very kind and offered us desserts on the house that... More

I enjoyed a delicious gnocchi dish and red wine. The wine prices are not jacked up like most restaurants. They have a wide variety of different pastas and vegetarian options to suit anyone's tastes. The portions were smaller-like a real Italian dish- but absolutely delicious and filling. I will be returning the next time I am in need of some... More

Ok restaurant. Food ok but no WOW factor. Wine selection limited with even the best resulting in a poor rating. No ambiance sorry I will not be rushing back.

Went for Sunday night dinner at around 7.30pm. Restaurant was full, but after a 10 minute wait outside on a balmy evening, were shown to a table. The front of house staff worked as a team to give a masterclass on excellent service; the friendly and attentive professionalism of our waiter Juan Carlos G is worthy of particular note. We... More

THis is a fantastic place in Santa Monica. It is basically a build your own pasta place but the selections are amazing. They have other stuff as well, but this is a huge part of the menu. Everything we had was delicious and well prepared. The service was excellent as well. Just as a FYI, you are about a 15-20... More

After a day in Venice we decided to visit Santa Monica Pier and stopped in here for an early dinner (6pm). The place was already buzzing with a few people waiting on seats outside. Our host told us 10 minutes and he would have a table for us. We were seated within 5 mins ! The table service was quick... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
