I went here for a quick takeout lunch and ordered at the counter. I had a green salad with gorgonzola and lightly breaded chicken breast. Everything was fresh and tasted great. The portion was generous too for the cost. would happily go here again.

Why is everything so heavy?! Dishes weren't really Italian.... Sort of Italian American with their own little spin. Most of their dishes sound alike. The Chicken Marsala with vegetables was very bizarre- chicken on top of shredded veggies, the whole thing drowned in Marsala. Wouldn't...More

They do give you large portions, which is a plus. My wife and I split a plate of pasta and sauce. It was fine, and about what one would expect of most Italian restaurants. Parking is a big issue, due to construction in the area....More

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

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
