wonderful food and good service, but not enough servers for the amount of customers, so our meal took too long to be delivered. The servers, however are very nice, friendly, and accommodating.

Authenitic Emilian cuisine. Very well prepared and delicious. Everything we ordered was excellent. Definitely will return. Service could use improvement; it should not be necessary to ask 3 times for more water.

Sat outside to enjoy a relaxed dinner with my friend - place definitely filled up during main dinner time. Delish food and would def return - very cute place and I love that they carry Lambrusco's!!! Would highly recommend the dishes we ate: fried shiitake mushrooms w truffle oil (it's great you can actually taste & smell the truffle oil on this app), meatballs in tomato sauce (fresh tasting tomato sauce), short ribs w risotto (my friend said it was so buttery/smooth tasting) and their tagliatelle Bolognese (the noodles had the perfect light and homemade texture). Loved it and would come back! Such a cute hidden gem of a find! I parked one one of the streets but apparently you can park in the Trader Joes parking lot and the restaurant will validate - win/win since this area can be hard to find parking!

Pleasant atmosphere, attentive service and food was ok. I ordered risotto and it was the ugliest plate of food I’ve ever seen. Literally just a plate of slop. No garnish, no green, no shaved Parmesan, no nothing. Dreadful. Tasted ok.
But the meal was decent overall. Just need to work on plating.

A trattoria where the pasta was underwhelming (it needed salt and I cook with very little salt!) and the wait staff was friendly but overwhelmed. Plus they yelled(!) back and forth to each other.

GIVE THIS PLACE A BREAK. The room is plain, the décor uninspired, the parking is FUBAR (around the corner, down the ramp, up the elevator, to walk to the restaurant – but they validate). Get over it. The food is superb. Our calamari, shrimp and stuff to start so good we had to order another. Tender chicken breast flattened and sautéed with delicate artichoke sauce was the manna that goes with the ambrosia. The pasta Bolognese was properly al dente and the sauce actually tasted like what we had in Bologna (not the red meat sauce with a pretentious name you often get instead of the real thing). Service was perfect. Friendly, knowledgeable, intelligent and there when you wanted, not when you didn’t. No full bar but, though not an overpowering wine list, a very serviceable (varied and delightful) list of wines by the glass (and bottle). If you’re thinking of investing in a restaurant, think of Emilia (with a better location); this place should skyrocket with people who love good food and good people. In the meantime you'll just have to be satisfied with great food, perfect wine compliment and wonderful service.

All our group enjoyed the food & the outdoor ambience. Waiter arranged to fix me a pasta with shrimp & pink sauce, menu lacks seafood pastas. Salads were really good as well as seared tuna. Desserts were great, did not like the jam in pana cotta, thou tiramisu & creme brule were really exquisite. Very good expresso. It was nice they validated parking for whole day so we took a stroll in Beverly Hills.

The food was excellent, we ordered pasta and branzino. The vegan broccoli also soo good. The waiter was attentive and helpful making suggestions. The dining outside was fine; just a bit loud due to being on a busy street. Overall a really nice experience, although a bit pricey.

mazing food and outstanding service ! I came last Night to celebrate Valentine's I had such a amazing incredible experience. The service was absolutely top Tier !! And the manager was extremely Friendly.

I couldn't recommend this location more ! Try out the Lobster pasta or traditional bolognese ! One of the best Italian restaurant I've ever been too and I've been serving tables for years !! Thank you so much
