“Romantic but downgraded.”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Good Italian food but very greasy. Dripping with oil even with roasted vegetables. The ambiance is very nice. Romantic. Great date place. They don't give you fountain drinks anymore. Now they are making you pay for the glass Coca Cola bottles. Kinda tacky. Used to go there before and they were better.

“Avoid!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Amateur staff with a management who are incapable of recognising or apologising for any of their failures, including worms in the food. Yes, that is right, LIVE WORMS in the food. Avoid at all costs of you want to stay healthy as it is better to go hungry.

“hidden treasure”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

tucked away in an old brick building under a forgettable local market is a jewel of a place...sublime decor - walls tastefully covered with fabulous artworks, craftworks & legendary music photography...the well-chosen wine list, eclectic menu, and attentive service help make your dining experience memorable...you almost don't want to tell anyone you know about this place...and keep it for your own special occasions...or your regular hangout...try anything...but the salmon is 'signature'....and the house marinated olives served as an appetizer are to live for!

“I rarely rate restaurants so you know it must have been special!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

While I am big on hotel reviews, I rarely post anything on restaurants. However, a friend who used to live in LA recommended it and we were not disappointed. This is a small "neighborhood" place on Laurel Canyon about 3/4 mile north of Hollywood Ave. If you miss the entrance to the parking ($5.00 valet) and about the only option then turning around and getting back down Laurel Canyon Road (which we did eventually) is quite the production.

Once inside, it is a homey, comfortable place with at least a couple of dining rooms and a heated patio. There were three of us and we all had the highly recommended Cedar Plank Salmon ($26) which comes with a choice of two sides. All of the sides were excellent. Mine were spinach and root vegetables which was awesome. Olives and walnuts (complimentary) start the meal and a thick bread with a bean dipping sauce are also included. Three dinners and three glasses of wine were $130 tip included.

We talked with the manager, Scott, who was very informative. A very nice experience and we will be back.

Cheers.
