Maria proves time and time again that true Italian Fare can be found in the heart of the city! All dishes are fresh and delicious with an amazing variety of choices on the menu! The Calamari is very tender and never over cooked. The pastas are delicious and never drowned in oil or sauce. The Ravioli is especially delicious as they pack it full with minced meat! The Pasta Primavera is healthy yet more flavorful than any other dishes! The service is fair and the location is in the heart of Downtown LA. Excellent restaurant that we will return to regularly!

I had some antipasto salad which was good. It had a bunch of different meats on it. My boyfriend had carbonara which he said was good. They have happy hour, but only in the bar. Good service, but nothing special about the restaurant.

The food was ok, not great. Service was weak at best. One of us ordered angel hair with mushrooms and spinach in olive oil and garlic. Plate was full of angel hair with few mushrooms and even less spinach. No olive oil no garlic. Expensive for what was received .

Went here for dinner on a recent business trip. Impressed with the quality of the food, given that downtown LA isn't exactly an Italian culinary oasis. Servings were large and delicious.
