pleasant meal we had Caesar salad and lasagne - didn't have wine this particular night. bit of a wait for the main course, waiter came over to reassure us 3 times, but we are on hols, no rush, so it wasn't such a big deal. very good atmosphere and pleasant waiting staff. overall good experience

So this is a great place on Main to have a mid priced Italian dinner with a great wine selection. It's best to make a reservation on the weekend but they do their best to seat you if you just happen to walk in.

We ate at this restaurant during our stay in Santa Monica. We happened upon it druing a walk down Main Street. Quite simply this is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in. The atmosphere was lovely, both the staff and other customers were so friendly and welcoming. The food was divine and the cheesecake was the best we have ever had - much better than the cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. We had a lovely evening and it was the perfect place to be at the end of our honeymoon. I would love to go back but live in the UK so its a bit far! Just fabulous.

We travelled to LA from Australia as a family group and had a special birthday to celebrate. The staff went out of their way to help us and were happy to organise a birthday cake. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent and made it a truely memorable event.

Food was melt in your mouth good. Casual, relaxed atmosphere. Best Linguine Alla Vongole my husband ever had, and moderately priced. Jordi was our server and he was very friendly and conversational without being overbearing. Would definitely go back if we return to Santa Monica!
