Small, cozy restaurant specializing in northern Italian food. Prices are a bit high for the portion size but the food is excellent. Excellent wine list. Dress is business casual. There's a happy hour but unfortuantely, it's only at the bar which literally has about 10 seats so even if you go for happy hour, you may not have a place to sit.

We really enjoyed this restaurant in Redondo. The service was great & the food was amazing. Not your typical Italian restaurant-no greasy pizzas!

This is a family ... the entire restaurant makes you feel like you're eating in grandma's kitchen. I have never had a bad meal here, I have tried things I would never think to try just because I've never been let down. This isn't traditional southern Italian food, this is northern Italian food, meats, ragu's, seafood and the like. Pasta isn't overly represented here so make sure everyone knows that. However the half chicken is outstanding and the lasagna is out of this world.

This was a wonderful surprise in our recent trip to L.A. Tucked away in Redondo Beach, a great Italian restaurant that does not look any different from many other pleasant-looking (but not differentiated) restaurants along Pacific Coastal Highway. We were six; we had five different kinds of pasta and all were outstandingly good. For dessert, a wonderful homemade Tiramisu among the best I have ever had anywhere.

And the wine list: the most extensive Italian wine list I have ever seen in the US, plus some excellent choices from around the world, from very good inexpensive California items to some fine examples of the best of the best (including a 1981 Chateau Mouton Rothschild). This wine list puts to shame some of the top trendy places in the country.

Service was very good. They did warn us that our orders would take twenty minutes to prepare (so if you are taking your kids for a quick meal, perhaps this is not your best choice). We had great company, bread and a good Barolo; we did not mind the wait, and when the pasta arrived, it was well worth waiting for. We will certainly return: I could spend the year there going through every item on the menu and sampling the wine...
