    We arrived before our reserved time of 15 minutes. The hostess took us to a table which was by the entrance of the restaurant. We objected and we showed her the empty tables that we would prefer to sit at. She called the manager who said those tables were reserved and he did not care if we had reservations. During the conversation another table opened up and the manager again objected saying he was going to seat 7 people at that table. So we were asked to wait for another table to open up. Finally one was up and we were taken there. Sure enough we noticed that the table that the manager was going to seat 7 people at had only four people. It was very obvious that he was lying to us. We got a tiny plate of fries instead of the normal

    Celebrated a family birthday on a beautiful Sunday afternoon on the patio. Salads, pizzas and pastas were all delicious (the ricotta cheesecake was really good, too) and the outdoor feel of Malibu on a gorgeous day was best of all. My 3 1/2 year old grand daughter enjoyed the adjacent play area after we finished. Would happily do it again any time.

    Despite the noise and somewhat slow service, this was a wonderful dining experience. The food is the BEST. Super desserts! The evening breeze on the patio was delightful.

    Here is an example of a restaurant masquerading as an authentic Italian restaurant. They have the lingo down as evidenced by the menu and the description of the food. Our entrees which included a pasta dish that evoked memories of my childhood and eating Chef Boyardee from a can. The risotto tasted like boiled rice with vegetables, including raw carrots.i seriously doubt that there is any Italian personnel in the kitchen. I would also find it hard to believe that he owners are Italian. So in short, unspeakably bad food and pricey at that. The only positive attribute is a lovely patio and an accommodation waitstaff.

    The best truffle Risotto I have had in a long time. Perfect texture, and sauce. Grilled Branzino was very good. Seafood stew was Ok. Outside dining was very enjoyable.

    We moved out of Malibu recently and the thing we miss the most is the food. We get the short ribs everytime and we are never disappointed. Excellent service as well!

    We have been there before. This was the first time I had to send a item back and they rebooked it on my same place. Not normal for this type of Resturant

    This has been a family favorite for 18 years. My kids grew up coming to this restaurant and still love coming to it. Always special. Waiters are so professional and bring flair to what they do.

    The food here is only so so. I think the restaurant has been around so long and in such a central place with not much competition, that they just don't care much. My gluten free pizza was soggy and inedible. My salad which was goat cheese and figs had DRIED figs! Come on... This is mid summer. I was so disappointed My friend's chicken wasn't as good as the last time he was there, so it's chancy. Hit and miss. And for me, it was a miss.

    First and foremost, the service is outstanding. Extremely attentive, kind, knowledgeable and professional. Made us feel very welcome. The food was also well prepared, high quality and diverse in options. Truffle fettucicne, tuna tartare, proscuitto, and branzino were all very tasty. Would go back anytime and would probably be one of my staples if I lived closer.

    The food is always good and consistent. We went for Mother's day and they were very attentive. A bottle of Proseco was presented to the Moms at each table - a very nice touch

    We enjoyed it thoroughly, service was fantastic, waitstaff is very knowledgeable. Hosts were friendly. Food and wine were fantastic. After our kids ate, they were able to play in the playground while we finished our meal and watched them.
