Amazing experience. Got there a little later and we were a little afraid that we may be rushed out but it was quite the contrary. Waiter was very friendly and the manager took the best care of us. Forgive me for forgetting the names of our dishes. Start with the cinnamon roll with cheese fondue drizzled over it, next the prosciutto and mozzarella melt in your mouth. There was a sashimi tuna dish that was one of the most flavorful things I’ve tasted in a long time. It was an orange, mint and pepper combination that sounds weird but is like a party for your tastebuds. To top it off, the entree was a squash pasta with crab. I couldn’t get enough. I will definitely be going back. I’ve honestly never had such a wonderful dining experience.

If you spend the money and are nice they really take care of you. The caviar was excellent. One of the head chefs, Adam Sobel, came over and introduced himself. I will go again when my daughter comes to town this March. She is a real gourmet and will love it. The wines were very good. I think there is a wine steward but not sure because we never saw her or him. We ordered wine by the glass only with a great mixed drink.

Very good food
Typical Los Angeles “ order multiple dishes to share”.
I don’t understand having a high end Italian restaurant that from the outside looks like an El Torito or Chipotle in a mall. While the food was excellent, it’s not a Mall restaurant. I don’t think sitting on the patio with a view of men’s warehouse is appetizing it seems like it goes together when eating a $21 appetizer.
I feel like this would have been better located someplace else.

Well done Michael Mina. In all, a delightful gastronomic experience. Superb service!! And you've just opened. It was a pleasur e meeting you, Adam, and Dennaro who pampered us all night!

We will return often, the Tagliatelli was my favorite dish that evening, with the Patara pie a close second. In addition, diners should try the digestive Limoncello after dinner, which is made in the premises. They have a variety of flavors, but the Classic was unforgettable.
Bravo Mr. Mina. I can't wait for your other venues at that location to arrive and delight.
