I was glad to visit this local landmark known for its fine Italian food. The food was not quite what I expected: most dishes were drowned in a rather heavy tomato sauce. And the warm ambiance was spoilt by a manic barman, spurred on by an equally manic client. Both repeatedly shrieked with laughter, making it impossible to have a conversation.

This restaurant was a surprising find. We walked in and found the place charming. The food was delicious. I had the carbonara. One of the best ever.

Thanks VERY much to our server Mario! The Gentleman was so pleasant, and truthfully, I had lots of questions and requests during the meal (I am Italian, from Detroit, so was having a few interesting experiences with SoCal Italian dining). The Eggplant appetizer was really prepared well! This Restaurant offers several red sauces, which was a nice change, I had run into a string of alfredo and flavored alfredo on my trip:). Great meal, sensible pricing, great staff, all of them! Mario and the table bus boys...
