About the restaurant
Filomena's Italian Kitchen serves old-world cuisine in a cozy setting in Costa Mesa. The restaurant is a labor of love for owner and chef Linda Johnsen, who has translated her Italian heritage and family recipes into a flavorful comfort food menu. From her grandmother's Sunday sauce gracing the chicken, veal and eggplant parmesan to the classic sauce in the pappardelle bolognese, traditional ingredients stand out at Filomena's Italian Kitchen. Johnsen has put her own stamp on the menu with creations like champagne chicken and agro dolce calamari (shrimp and calamari tossed in a sweet tangy glaze with pine nuts, raisins and sweet peppers).In addition to traditional first-course options like caprese angel hair pasta, entree and seafood specialties, Filomena's also serves a selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian pizzas and calzones. End your meal at Filomena's Italian Kitchen on a sweet note with tiramisu, cannoli or flourless chocolate cake.

About the restaurant
The Cellar is the perfect setting for an intimate and romantic evening of fine dining. In 1969, artistic craftsmen of Disneyland fame created a romantic rendezvous in the cellar of the old California Hotel. Intimate and cozy, the dining room is elegant amid structured arches and cave-like walls that are deecorated with wine casks and silver lanterns. Culinary excellence abounds with only the finest and freshest foods prepared in a lighter version of classical French cuisine and finely crafted cocktails which set a benchmark for all of Southern California!

If you are unable to obtain a reservation for the evening, please visit our sister restaurant which is located across the courtyard. https://www.opentable.com/r/hidalgo-fullerton

The food was very good: the lobster bisque, chateaubriand and chocolate soufflé were excellent. Unfortunately, the Bernaise sauce had little to no taste, and the Caesar salad was not fresh. The leaves were clearly older, rather than fresh and crispy, and was a disappointment to me, who was looking forward to a crispy, delicious, fresh salad. Our waiter, Heather, was very accommodating and pleasant. Overall a nice meal, but not without disappointment
