We made reservation for wife's birthday and when we arrived we were told they were closed for private event. I felt that they were rude about it and could care less that we made a point of making a reservation and were excited about trying their restaurant.

When we arrived, there were no people in the restaurant and when we left at 1:30PM there still were no people. The waitress seemed to be untrained and when we showed her our gift coupon, she gave us a different menu which had higher prices. (we withdrew the coupon). Possibly, this was waitress' 1st day: language problem, not able to figure out if we wanted red or white wine, oblivious to making sure silverware, water glasses, wine glasses, etc. were on the table; never checked to see if all was well with the food either. The steak was excellent and rare and the farfalle pasta with 4 cheeses was good. The Caesar salad was swimming in too much sauce. With no ambience, no service, no people it was a loser.

The food from salad, soup to entree was extremely good. The service was excellent as well. I would definitely return.

The food was delicious: the Baramundi special prepared with lemon butter and capers and the vegetables-perfection.
We started with the calamari and shrimp fritti which were both very good dipped in a tasty cocktail sauce, but both of us felt
that the french fries accompanying the deep fried seafood was a distraction. The classic Italian salad, also well prepared was
a nice complement to the appetizer, and the freshly baked bread was first rate. A glass of red wine topped off the meal, followed
by chocolate gelato with raspberry sherbet and coffee. Altogether an excellent lunch.

Only two criticisms: 1)The restaurant was empty & the room was set up for a banquet with a platform for music and a dance floor.
2)Decor was overly orn

There are far too many choices out there for good Italian restaurants and this one is disappointing. The wait staff - while pleasant and courteous - is not polished for the fine dining experience that this restaurant is striving to be. 5 of us for dinner - pasta seemed to be 'boxed prepared' with one of my guest's entrees, raviolis, tasting as if it had been frozen and re-heated. Wine IS excellently priced and a great value, but does not warrant a return visit from me or any of my guests. NOT recommended.

I remember coming to this restaurant several years ago and loving the food. So I decided to come back and see if it's still the same. Amazing food and service! If you're in the glendale area and you're in the mood for some good italian. Check this place out!

Went for Valentines Day. Have been there before for lunch. Service was wonderful. Food was really good. Sax player stopped twice to answer his phone (BAD) and the laser lights? Worst part of the night was the lasers dots spinning around. . I went there for romance, not for a cheesy phone answering saxaphone player. Cost was reasonable. Overall happy.

We must have gone on an off night, we made RESERVATIONS for 7:30, when we showed up, there was not one other customer in the place. We sat down, the server did not know the menu, could not answer ANY question we had, she did not go get someone who could, so we ordered what we thought would be best. The food was actually not that bad, except for 7 bones in the halibut I ordered. The employees were so busy talking to some friend in the bar area, we had to flag down the server just to get our check. We WON'T be going back there !
