Located in historic downtown Ventura, just blocks from the beach. Our comfortable booths have loose pillow seating which gives the restaurant a warm and delightful atmosphere. Come sit by the warm fireplace or have a seat at our fully stocked bar and sip some of our most innovative cocktails or some of our 40 martinis. Our traditional Southern Italian cooking is made with old world recipes. We take pride in giving our utmost service to our diners and to make everyone feel like family. If patio dining is what you are looking for, try our covered heated patio that feels like you are in a Tuscan villa or try our expanded patio and sit in our private cabanas and enjoy the fireplace and the spinning sounds of the hottest DJ's. Look on our website for fun events, like our summer cigar dinners, wine tasting events and our annual picnic and movie in the park. We look forward to serving you! Cheers and Bon Appeti

We came 10 minutes early and our table was surprisingly ready. Service was ok. Our attendant intermittently checked in on us. A little disappointed that spinach ran out early since we placed our order at 830pm. Ambiance was ok. It could’ve been better. There was live music and background music during breaks. I wasn’t too impressed. Considering it was vday, I would have expected the music to celebrate love. Instead it brought a somber mood to the evening.
We also had an axxess card which they wouldn’t take because vday is apparently a recognized holiday and the BOGO doesn’t apply on holidays.

Keep going back and trying it. Gets worse each time. When they first opened they were great. Now it's just an ordinary Italian restaurant. Nothing special.

Great neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and attentive. Love the ambiance. The menu is extensive and offers something for every taste. I’ve never seen so many risotto options on a menu before.

The food was delicious but that evening there seemed to be an extreme delay. We were there for over 2.5 hours, because we were waiting for our food. The waitress made it up to us with a dessert on the house that was fantastic!

Took forever to get our food. 1 1/2 hours and then one dinner was missing. We like the food and the live bands but service really needs to improve.

We ask if we can seat were they cook !
We love to seat there , you get the a bird eye view of everything!
You get to see everyone ones jobs down to the one that’s the salads to the one does the sauces and the main Chief .
We sat down in no time , but after waiting for 5 minuets, no waiter , no water !
and that’s looking over the menu! Finely waiter show up , yes you do have others tables to do too but it shouldn’t have taken that long . Sorry !
The bread came out fresh right out of the oven and was wonderful !
We like oil and balsamic with the bread it’s so good !
Are appetizer and dinner came out wonderful ! Really good food !

Looking for good Italian, and this was a good spot with nice service. Had some nice wine options that were outside the typical. Regular spaghetti with meatballs and the various salads were really good. Pasta Arrabbiata, however, was disappointingly lacking any spice. A little on the expensive side, but all in all a nice time.
