Nice surprise - didn't expect this in a beach area, not too expensive an excellent choices on the menu. Had a lobster tortellini which was really really good. My business colleague had a homemade ravioli with prime rib in the middle. I am from St Louis MO and familiar with quality Italian food (The Hill area) and this was really good. Couldn't find any draw backs, lots of families were there.

Every time we visit Manhattan Beach this is a must go to place. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. I had the chicken Chris (chicken and eggplant) and it was wonderful. They offer bread and pizza that is served while waiting for a table and even while seated and eating.

The food is VERY good. It is definitely a family restaurant. There were many families with small children so the noise level was "up there". We especially enjoyed the lasagna and ravioli!

Very Good Italian food. The bread alone is worth dinning here. Not a large restaurant so prepare to wait as it is very popular. As you are waiting outside, they bring you samples. The ambiance is very Italian as the tables are close to each other so you are dinning with all your new found "friends", hence this is NOT a place for a secluded romantic get away dinner! The meat marinara has a little "kick" to it which was most delicious. Perfect for families and friends.

This is really a "go to" place for many, based on two recent experiences. Better get there at 5 PM when they open or you'll have to wait. The only reason I rated it "Average" is because of the noise level. It's small, pretty basic, and tables very close to each other. Being from the older generation group, it's sometimes difficult to have a meaningful conversation with your table partner(s), due to the sound. On the positive side, the service and food are excellent, and the corkage fee is $10.
