We had a lovely table reserved for us on Valentine's day. The waitress was very prompt with our drinks and appetizer course of bruschetta. The manager brought our entrees to us and made sure we were taken care of. The food was excellent. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely return.

They have an awesome steak salad that's my favorite but there are other things that are just as yummy like there wrapped dates. Their wine prices by the glass is very good too.

LB is a great little spot. Service was good and those that ordered the seafood special were in love. My short rib ragu was a little off, but I’ve had it before and really enjoyed it. Still missing the rigatoni they took off the menu a while back.

We had lunch here. We all ordered various paninis paired with a salad. Most of us had the delicious pear and walnut salad- highly recommend. A nice place for a girls day out to lunch.

I had been here on a week prior to this visit and had a great experience and returned with friends. When we arrived we entered and were not acknowledge by the hostess, two separate parties arrived after us and were greeted and seated before us, the hostess finally asked our name, checked the computer and had us seated, she never made eye contact or spoke directly to us, once our meal was received the waitress did not return to our table, we had to beg for water on three separate occasions. Please note that no other customers arrived after our 7 pm arrival, very disappointed on being treated this way, although the food was good it was not worth being treated this way, I was embarrassed for putting my friends in this position.

The food is delicious and reasonably priced. They have a good wine selection. The waiter was attentive and gave us time to make our selections. An excellent authentic Italian restaurant with a quiet comfortable ambiance. I would highly recommend to to anyone.

We waited over 40 minutes to get our food. Noone came to check in on us. Then I asked if we could do a birthday celebration and the waiters forgot.

Not going back.

Excellent food. Great flavor and presentation. Will definitely come back. My only complaint is our group was greeted, but we stood at the entrance way too long before being seated. My husband was able to go to the restroom and return and waited a little longer. Just a small thing in comparison to the excellent excellent food.

I made a reservation for a team outing event for work. And everyone was super pleased with every single thing, the staff was very welcoming, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. We started our dinner with appetizers; calamari and a cheese platter paired with a wine that our waitress Erica recommended. It was excellent choice. Our dinner platters were just as outstanding. I ordered a pasta with shrimp (I don't recall the sauce) but it wasn't marinara. I ate the entire thing, but because it was so so good. I can't wait to come back and enjoy some more pasta and wine.

Our whole family loves this place as we come from different directions and meet for breakfast. The food, service, setting and servers make it a favorite for littles as well as adults! We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and make up excuses to meet, eat and visit at this wonderful restaurant!

Excellent food and service. My pasta connoisseur husband is still dreaming about and craving the Cavatelli. The burrata was delicious and the house cured olives were spectacular. Great, classy "LA vibe" restaurant without the pretension. So glad this is close to home. It's a new favorite and we'll be bringing all future visitors.

The waiter was fantastic, a gem, and nods to the Chef who created a shrimp appetizer for us that was not on the Menu. Bravo to all concerned, but particularly our waiter. He deserves a raise.

Res: Saturday at 7 PM on August 31st.

We came for brunch in a small group of six. The food was fabulous and the server was AMAZING! She was very funny and engaging. She always made sure we were okay - checking often. We had such a great time and were never rushed. This is our first time here - which is crazy since it's down the street. We will be back soon - and OFTEN!!

Service & food excellent. Chef sent out a delicious starter plate of dates wrapped in bacon - outstanding. Highly recommend the restaurant both for lunch (their hamburger can’t be beat) and dinner. Like to do business with family owned establishments.

Absolutely delicious. Always looking for anew places to try. Definitely try this one. We will be back. Quiet location. Had the homemade olives, bruschetta, the sea bass with risotto and braised short ribs and pasta. Don’t ask me to tell you the name of the pasta, but is all fabulous.

Celebrating my birthday tonight I was looking forward to a great dinner with my wife. Our server told me the seafood special was a seabass and shrimp dish on a bed of bucatini pasta. I was first served seabass on top of risotto and I told the server the dish didn’t look correct. He apologized and told me the chef made a mistake and thought it was just the seabass on the menu, but the seafood special. Again, I confirmed with the server that the special was shrimp AND seabass on a bed of bucatini. Well, the dish that cane out was just shrimp on top of spaghetti. Again I questioned the server and was told that he made a mistake, as last night the special was a shrimp and seabass dish over bucatini. So, after plodding through a few bites of the dish, I didn’t like it and told the server I didn’t want it. He asked if he could box it up for me and I said no, it doesn’t taste good to me. The dish wasn’t taken off the bill, but I was given a 20% discount off just the special. Really? Poor customer service.
