This place is always exceptional. Our entree did arrive when we were only half way done with our appetizers, but they kept it warm.

Despite this small hiccup, everything was great (as usual)

We were seated in the "outdoor" annex. Very comfortable space and a lot less noisy than
the main dining area. Our server was very personable and the service was terrific throughout
the evening.

We had checked the menu out before coming and really liked what we saw. Everyone was very happy with what they ordered: the sole, the baked eggplant and the short rib ravioli.

All said and done, a great evening. It was our first time there but we will definitely be back.

OUTSTANDINGLY MEDIOCRE. I have been there before and it was really good. I have not been there for over a year. I went because my sister and her husband was visiting and I wanted to make it a special event. We were a party of five. Only one person like what they ate. The others (including me) thought it was mediocre at best. Service was terribly slow. Forever to get someone to take our order, forever to get it. I ordered a second glass of wine, only to cancel it when it arrived after I had finished my meal. The cappuccinos with dessert were delivered cold, and I had to wait a long time to get a hot one. The bill came out to $260 for five people and we only had three glasses of wine in the whole dinner party! No other alcohol. This place used to be quite good, but it is definitely no longer near worth the big bucks they charge.

One of the best restaurants in Ventura Co. We visit every month. The short ribs and gnocchi are favorites.

Unfortunately my husband's chicken was soft and mushy in the chicken scallopine. I ordered baked rigatoni and it was dry and overcooked. My friend's half roasted chicken looked underdone. Coffee should have been hotter too and the Chardonnay selection by the glass not very good. When the restaurant opened it was great. Then when Fabio stopped being there consistently, food quality declined. We stopped going, went back and it was better. But this last visit resorted to not so good.

The service was so slow from the waitress and the kitchen. It took 20 minutes to order drinks then another hour to get our food. The chicken Marsala was completely dry but it had taken so long we just ate it and left. It’s not like they were very busy that night so I don’t know what the problem was.

This being said, I have been here multiple times and never had this experience before. The food has always been consistent and the service good.

I will go back again, someday, and would not discourage anyone from going there. Especially for happy hour.

Seated promptly at table as requested. Really nice and engaging service by Tim, helped make the evening even more fun. The Pancetta wrapped Shrimp are always and were Fabulous. Had Short Rib Ravioli which is also Always excellent. We also enjoyed a Mozzerella Salad, which they prepared for my wife even though it is not on the Menu now. Excellent overall dining experience, thank you.

Service was wonderful! Bacon wrapped shrimp and calamari appetizers were delicious. Sausage and truffle pizza was excellent. Chicken scallopini was yummy. Pasta dishes were just okay...bland and not that flavorful. Wouldn’t order pasta again but the rest of the meal was great!

It is too bad that Open Table completely dropped the ball such that when I arrived at the restaurant--with my printed Open Table reservation in hand--they had no record of it, even though we had spoken to the restaurant on several occasions, so it was not the restaurant's problem.
Open Table = awful.

We showed up with reservations, got forgotten about. Then when seated we asked for bread but never got it. When the food came both pasta dishes were under cooked. My husband told the waitress and she took it back but then when it came out all they did was reheated it which made the seafood overcooked and the pasta still was undercooked. We were very disappointed because we only get a few date nights with out kids. And we have been here in the past and only had good things to say so this was a disappointment

We were sat 10 minutes past our reservation and given the run around from the hostess. Food was amazing but we didn’t love the policy they have of ordering your entire meal at once. Our meal was served and eaten within 45 minutes which makes for a quick turn around when we would have loved to elongate the evening. Since we loved the food we would likely do take-out from here but probably not dine-in again.

Went for my wife's birthday. We were seated in a patio area that could have served as their freezer. Heaters provided no heat and people were moving from table to table trying to get close to the decorative fire pit. No one should have been seated in this area unless they were polar bears.

Management told me that they were aware of the problem with the cold in patio area. As I told them them knowing and not doing anything about the problem did not really help me much. Had I been the manager of the place I would have gone to a restaurant supply place and rented a few of those heaters we all know about and put those in place until the issue could have been permanently solved down the line. This is what management does when they are told multiple times of their customers having a problem.

Food was good for myself and my daughter. The birthday girl however got an initial pasta dish that was like eating a bicycle tire. She sent that back only to get a new dish that proclaimed it was pasta with crab and asparagus. Please note the "with" as the manager explained to me. With needs a further explanation for if "with" is less than one spear of asparagus I guess that would apply. "With" crab would only qualify, if you consider a teaspoon of flaked crab as meeting the requirement for "with". Basically this was pasta with lemon sauce. Considering this place is owned by a participant from the "Top Chef" show I would have loved to see those judges try out my wife's food. He would have had to "pack his knives and go" as they say on the show.

The waiter was fantastic, very apologetic, owned the problem as his own even though he was not the cook (note I say cook and not chef). Very nice and considerate man. Management however did not want to own the problem as he did.

I was given a $50 gift card for for giving my feedback. I'm not sure if we will ever be back though considering we drove 43.7 miles for this wonderful experience.

We had high hopes for this restaurant after seeing other posts, but it turned out to be, meh. The restaurant has wonderful ambience especially considering the enormity of the dining area. The service was good as was the live music from the gentleman playing smooth jazz.

Unfortunately, the food was mediocre. It wasn't bard, but for the price, I truly expected better. I ordered a side of fettuccine Bolognese and the Osso Buco. The Bolognese sauce had far too much tomato paste making it almost bitter. The Osso Buco was just O.K. Definitely not anything worth offering a second time. Overall just a blah experience. Probably won't be returning.

They were busy and they kept saying they were setting up our table but it took over 45 minutes to seat us. And they ran out of steak and chicken at 7:00. Strange. We were seated outside where the cold air came through the bottom of the curtains. We had a fun night but as the best restaurant in Moorpark it left a little to be desired. I think next time we will drive a little.
