    Place is CHarming, good servers, but we all felt the same about the food! Mediocre and tasteless! Hardly any sausage on the pizza, and the rest of food was average at best.

    Overall our dining experience was lovely. 4 stars because the service was a bit slow, especially near the end of our evening. The food is a little pricey, but everyone enjoyed their meals.

    The food was good. The service was terrible. The server was very dry and not around. When we asked for peppers and parmesan, the food person gave us a hand motion of wait and never returned.

    We came because there was a grilled octopus antipasti dish on the menu. Turned out to be so good that we just had several orders of it and called it dinner. The wine selection from the wine shop inside the restaurant was excellent. Will definitely come back next time we’re in Newport Beach.

    Hostess rolled her eyes when she saw my party (we are highschoolers going to prom). Host who brought us to our table was very sour didn’t say much. Waitress was passive aggressive to my friend and had a rude demeanor. Not friendly or anything. We waited so long for our food (understandable though). The food was great and I love the ambiance though. Just wish the staff was better. Didn’t make us feel welcomed.
