Our favorite Italian restaurant! We come here once a week and have enjoyed every meal we have tried. It’s a hidden restaurant but the food is amazing! The service is great, everyone is friendly. The restaurant is a neighborhood gem. It has a nice variety of foods from pizza to salad to fish, chicken or beef dishes. The veal Milanese and saffron risotto are fantastic! Must try them!

What a disappointment -an Italian restaurant that cannot cook pasta. Three of us went there for dinner. We started with their fried calamari which were delicious-small crunchy calamari & zucchini slices- a wonderful combination well prepared.
Alas, what followed was a disaster. I ordered the mixed seafood in the white wine sauce. I was served a bowl of pathetically over cooked bits of shrunken shellfish -totally unidentifiable -is it a scallop, or a clam or a mussel? Who knows? On overcooked pasta-totally disgusting & inedible. When I sent it back I ordered the bolognese which both of my guests had ordered. What arrived was a very tasty sauce on very, very overcooked pasta. When I asked my guests about their dinners they both confirmed that their pasta was pretty mushy too. Surely they can do better. This was a big disappointment.

Great pasta and sauces. The pasta alla Norma is one of the best in town and the Bolognese sauce is excellent. We had the frito misto as an appetizer. The calamari, shrimp and scallops were fried perfectly as were the zucchini slices which came with it. This visit we sat outside which was quite lovely since we could all talk and hear each other which is sometimes not possible inside on a crowded night.

Not one dish we ordered registered as fresh in any way. The best thing to have at the restaurant is the bread and nothing else. The prices are ridiculous and what you pay for tastes like it cam e out of a can.

This place has a truly special kitchen which is often time difficult to find. It is secluded and not well advertised which is nice. I like that its not very commercial. We were referred by an Italian friend of our who said it was authentic. Our waiter was also from Italy and very helpful. Great sense of humor and honest advice about what specifically we would like from the menu.

We had a lovely dinner with a 92 year old Aunt on their patio. Everyone could hear each other! Amazing. And she loved the fact that it is hidden in a back corner of Bel Air/Beverly Glen. The food was terrific with one exception, the artichoke with peas, which I sent back with no problem. The rest of the meal, including the Banana Cream Pie made the evening a success. This is a lovely place for good/expensive Italian food - enough to encourage us to return.
