Place seemed a little tired, old decor, Christmas lights everywhere (white), garden like but not. Food was okay, out of three people, only one had outstanding dish, rest were avg at best. People were nice, food just okay. Appears to be a local place where people come to order their favorites. There are better choices in BH, will opt to try other restaurants.

Pretty good ambiance, sadly there was a loud group close to our table that kind of ruined the experience.

The restaurant has been around for a long time for a reason... it's a great place to dine. I gave it only 4 stars both in the food and the value only because if you are charging premium, I'd like to know more about the food. For example, I had the bone in Rib Eye. For the price it needs to be grass-fed, grass-finished and pasture raised. In this day and age, if it doesn't say it, we are all guessing. If it's less than what I've mentioned, it doesn't deserve a 5-star rating. I suggest ownership consider making this change to reflect the times we now live in.

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times. The food is always excellent and they do not object to making dietary modifications such as low sodium. The service is excellent without being over bearing and the waiters do an excellent job of filleting the branzino. The ambience is quite romantic, especially in good weather when one can sit outside..

Love this place! Got a reservation at 7pm but got there a little early around 6:30pm and got seated right away. Service is excellent and the food was delicious! Ambiance is top notch! Can’t be anymore romantic than that. Will definitely go back.

What an enchanted evening. From the minute we walked in, the gentlemen that greeted us treated us with warm welcome, mostly in Italian. We're both Sicilian so it made us both smile. I had told them ahead of time that we were recently married and they made the kind gesture to place us at a table with rose petals, away from the rest of the guests so that we might have a more intimate dinner. My new wife was absolutely glowing, she was smiling so big. The service was impeccable; our glasses were never empty but they made certain never to interrupt our conversation. The food was very good, the bread that was delivered tasted freshly baked and recently warmed for our enjoyment. My wife got a ceasar salad and I requested the burrata pugliese, both came with heirloom tomatoes. The ceasar dressing was quite good, not fishy. The burrata was good but needed a few more tomatoes. For our main courses she chose the pappardelle de cinghiale (wild boar ragu); there wasn't a bite left on her plate and she NEVER eats all of her food, if this gives you any indication of how delectable it was. I had the homemade tagliolini with seafood in a light white wine sauce; there was so much variety in the seafood and it was all cooked to perfection. You will not go hungry with this dish. We finished with 3 desserts because we couldn't decide - tiramisu, an apple tart with pistachio gelato, and homemade biscotti for our cappuccino. Tiramisu is our favorite dessert and this was the best tiramisu I've had in a long time, it was perfectly light with chocolate shavings (not powder that makes you cough), with a berry compote that really complimented the flavors. The apples were a bit sweet for my liking but she seemed to enjoy them. And the biscotti was perfect for the excellently-made cappuccino.
All in all it was a dream. We will definitely be back.

Unfortunately I would not. While my filet was done quite well, the rest of my food was not. The sautéed spinach was much too salty and the mashed potatoes were on par with boxed mashed potatoes. However, the ambiance was very sweet and would make a nice date environment.

What an amazing restaurant! It started with a greeting of “ buona sera “ by Massimo the manager, who later greeted us & others to see how we were enjoying our evening. It’s been along time since we were in a restaurant where the food was excellent but even more importantly the service was incomparable! Our waiter was considerate of our table conversation & body language to know not to disturb us. Yet he waited for the right moment, & only then did he & others approach us. My wife and I both enjoyed the dim/hushed patio garden setting under the thousands of sparkling lights & candlelight. From the fluid presentations, Italian music, excellent food and attention to detail, this restaurant really deserves it’s excellent reputation for being a very romantic restaurant choice!

The fact they charge you for used rose petals is ridiculous and cheesy. They put us in a corner where there was an opening and it was very cold. We moved into a different section of the restaurant and this time it was either freezing or the heat was blasting. Ridiculous The tuna was totally tasteless. It was one of the worst dinning experiences I’ve had in LA. Amazing that it’s lasted this long. Food was average.

Food was excellent. The room was a bit warm.

We had to leave at 7 for the theater. We told the waiter in advance, but when 7 came, we still did not have the dessert (that we had purchased) and had to leave. They weren't packed and it was a disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful experience.
