“Good value, atmosphere, food and staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We are staying in a condo in SM and the owner suggested this place us after a long day sight seeing. It was perfect. No reservations are taken, so you just rock up and they will seat you as soon as they can. It is quick, tasty, good value food. Fine dining it is not and you will be in and out within an hour but it we would highly recommend it. We took our own wine (another suggestion from Paul our condo owner) and they charge $2 pp corkage. Food is marvellous and portions are large! Be warned! We shared a calamari starter for $6.50 and there was plenty for both of us. We both had speciality pasta dishes, which were lovely, but you can create your own pasta dishes if you want too. All in all, a great find and highly recommended.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

The only thing I dislike about this restaurant is that its hugely popular and on occasion there is a line. But we got in quickly on this trip and this is a restaurant I try not to miss when I'm in Santa Monica. The food is truly excellent and filling. The service is outstanding and I give this restaurant a hardy endorsement. If you like Italian food, check this out.

“Good italian restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

This Italian restaurant is located 4 blocks from the Promenade and really worth a visit. It is a simple restaurant but the food is very good. You choose one of the pasta, which are fresh, and pick the sauce you want. It is noteworthy that the sauces are very good. The dishes are well served and serve two people who are not very hungry. There are a few wine options, but they are reasonable. The service is good too.

“Tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Neighborhood find, go early. Good choice of vegetarian and meat dishes. My husband and son ordered two different entrees and split them, because they could not decide. I was not a fan of the Caesar dressing, way too anchovy tasting, but they liked it.

“Excellent Service, something for each of us on the menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We came here with our adult children and we all enjoyed it very much! The prices were very reasonable, the menu was extensive. We ordered the Firtto Misto sampler appetizer and it was very good. We each ordered pasta. Everyone liked what they received, I ordered the New Mexico Chili Linguini and I have to say it didn't have much flavor other than "pasta" - there was nothing New Mexican about it - yet it was a nice, fresh pasta. The waitress was very efficient, the ambiance was relaxed on a Sunday Afternoon at about 3pm. We really enjoyed this place and I'd recommend it to friends. Afterwards we walked down to the pier, which was only about 3 blocks away.
