The salmon was very good but the scallops in the appetizer were pretty mediocre. The Cabernet Sauvignon that cost $32.00 was excellent for the price

Everything was perfect with the exception of the very loud and continuous barking of the dog at the table next to us. It was extremely annoying.

The homemade pasta was unbelievable. I had the Alfredo Originalle, but I added shrimp. The portion was generous and absolutely wonderful

I have never been treated so bad... our waiter yelled at my mother who is an elder and he was beyond rude to our table. A chef and waiter didn’t showed up to work that night, but that should not dignify complete disservice to costumers, especially at a time when your customers could be and are federal employees that furloughed. We ended up leaving after ordering because the waiter was so abusive with his words.

Had a longer than expected wait because a few workers didn’t show, including the pizza maker so no pizza. The staff did their best and delivered a phenomenal meal, ensuring everyone was attended to as frequently as possible, with nothing but great attitudes toward everyone. I left full and content with the experience.

Good fare! - Good selections. The whitefish is delicious. The bread could be tastier and the music was annoying. Would love some crooning neapolitan songs or classical.
Liked our waiter.

I have been here many times and the food is always excellent. The service by Roberto, the owner, is excellent ... he knows I am a slow diner and never rushes me. If you're a chocolate lover and they have the Flourless Chocolate Cake, go for it ... it's super rich and the best I've ever had. I always bring my own bottle of wine since the $6 corkage fee is more than reasonable!!!

First time here with a friend from out of town. If you plan an early dinner, there is space in the free parking lot! We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu at very reasonable prices. The filet mignon was offered with a peppercorn sauce, and while it was presented in two pieces rather than the tall single chunk one usually sees in restaurants, it was perfectly prepared, tender and delicious. Their handmade pasta was also quite good, cooked just right. We started with the arancini appetizer, which arrived as two large balls that required utensils to enjoy, but enjoy them we certainly did! The portions are generous; we both took some home for lunch the next day. Our waiter, Salvatore, was informative, attentive, with the right amount of good humor, and helped us select a wine that worked well with our dishes. The wine list, while not as long as the food menu, is also very reasonable. This restaurant was a terrific find and we will be back, as well as tout it to other Italian food lovers.

We go here about once a month for casual dining. We always take advantage of the $5 corkage fee and no extra cost for split salads (love the burrata salad). We hit a particularly busy time this past week and service suffered as a result. Also the noise level inside was so high we were barely able to talk. We will still go back, we'll just wait for an outside table where the noise level is much lower.

We were dog sitting in LA and every time we drove by it, I was curious. We loved it so much the first time, we went back 3 days later. Same table. Attentive service, but not too much so. So far we've had the lamb chops, tagliatelle arriabbata, Caesar salad, lobster and shrimp ravioli and the ribeye with portobello and balsamic sauce. All meats were cooked perfect, as were the pastas. Great sauces. We will be back.

We were looking for hearty, home-style, authentic Italian and we found it! Great specials and a value. Different from the uppity LA scene with indoor and outdoor seating. We hit it at the later half of the evening and were seated right away. Would go back anytime!

Made reservations based on all the rave reviews. Arrive, place packed with people & people waiting which seemed promising.
No host showed up so so finally grabbed a waiter who looked us up & promised a table 10minutes later.
Service was really bad & slow, from waiting close to 15 minutes for menus, then water, then waited longer again for waiter to take our order. Then had to chase waiter down because he didn’t ask or wait for our drink orders.
Waited additional 15 minutes for salads. Busboys never came to clear table so when entries arrived we had to stack plates & hold them up so entries could be put down on table.
Waiter never came back to ask how things were or if we wanted more wine, water, etc or even if we liked the food. We were actually disappointed with the food.it was only average...plain with little seasoning. My steak was mostly gristle. We knew this was a popular neighborhood restaurant which is why we opted to try it based on all the 5 star reviews
Had to get up again to find a the waiter to ask for espresso & cappuccino. Again, had to hold up our plates to get a passing busboy to take them away.

Authentic Italian food at VERY affordable prices for the quality of food you will receive. Pastas are homemade. They offer lots of dining options, there is something on the menu for everyone. Friendly and welcoming staff. Lot parking available.
