For an Italian restaurant, I thought the food was very bland. All of the entre's we order were jus ok. Which is disappointing because the prices are pretty high. There is a large variety of wine available, but the waitress didn't know anything about the, I asked her if they had bread and she said she would get us some. Never got it. Took at least 10 minutes to get the wine we ordered and at least that long to get food. Waitress asked me if I wanted another glass of and I said yes, but never got it. The food was the biggest disappointment. The noise level is very high and very uncomfortable. You cannot have a quiet conversation. Will not return.

After many times of driving by the little Italian restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway, we finally went for dinner. The outdoor tables looked inviting, surrounded by little white lights and greenery -- a little traffic noise, but al fresco is always fun. We enjoyed the appetizer of clams, mussels,and crab in a deliciously spiced broth and then pasta dishes -- just the right size with a choice of first course or entree helpings. The wine list is extensive and service is pleasant. Fair prices.

We ate here once and ordered the "fresh fish special" recommended by the owner and our waitress. We were told it would take a bit of time due to the special preparation - not less than 5 minutes later, the dish was delivered to the table. When we questioned the waitress and the owner to make sure we received the correct dish - the owner explained there was a private party earlier in the day and this was left over from that party - Really?!?

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!
