“Northern Italy on the 3rd street mall in Santa Monica”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Food inspired by the lake district (Milan / Bellagio) in northern Italy. I had the special with red (beet colored) pasta, tuna, and salmon in a cream sauce ... unexpectedly excellent, and at $19, quite a bargain! The restaurant was crowded and fairly loud, but the food made up for it!

“Dinner on the Promenade”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Had the ossobucco and it was soft and the meat fell off the bone. Our waitress was a gem and the service was impeccable.

“Delicious and great service”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We ate at this Italian restaurant located along the Third Street Promenade. Wonderful service, good food and we enjoyed looking out along the Promenade during dinner. The chef was careful to tailor food for our allergies, and it came out hot and very attractively presented.

“Aways a pleasure”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

There are a lot of restaurants that have good food but few that make you feel like you're a wanted guest. The service is fast but not intrusive. The staff takes the time to make suggestions and to ask about your likes and desires. I like the cheese plate with a bottle of good wine. The Grolla drink is something you have to try. The ossobuco alla milanese is perfect. A nice place for lunch, dinner or a late night drink espresso and tiramisu.
