Gnocchi and rocket salad were great!
We sat in the outer room...a bit noisy for me with street so close, but food was great.

Another great dinner with a friend before we headed to the Dolby Theatre: Caesar Salad with Salmon and Penne Vodka. Excellent food and grand service.

This restaurant is a real find. The menu is pretty extensive with lots of choices. All four of us enjoyed our meals, which were plentiful and reasonably priced. Service was excellent - friendly and efficient. It was a quick two block walk to the Pantages Theatre, and the best part was that we were able to leave our car in the parking lot. Since it was a Sunday, there was no charge for parking. On other days, the charge is only $7 to leave the car while you attend the theatre. Of course, if you're just dining there, it's free. This will be our go-to restaurant when we drive in to the Pantages.

Good pizza, salads, and pastas. Lemon chicken, margherita pizza, Caesar salad, minestrone soup, all very good. Crowded but convenient parking behind the restaurant. Friendly, efficient service at fair prices.

Great to have a sit down restaurant with parking and within walking distance to theaters. Food was good, portions a bit too small for price. Torta dessert was delicious.

We sat for 10 min before someone visited our table to bring us water. When waters were brought they asked abruptly what we wanted to eat. I asked for recommendations & the server acted like it was a stupid question & told me I needed to decide what I liked.

My daughter had shrimp pesto gnocchi. The pesto sauce was great, the gnocchi was tender, but the shrimp was overcooked and tough.

I had the vodka pesto. It was not great. The sauce was a strange, salmon color & was quite sour. My shrimp was also overcooked & tough.

For the price it was “ fine” but I wouldn’t seek it out or go back.

Outside is REALLY cold as there are gaps in the plastic. The lighting inside was HARSH and should be set to a mood lighting. No specials were mentioned. We noticed the Pasta, Salad and glass of wine special before a show after we ordered from another table. Would have loved that option.

This is place we visit often
Management and staff upon finding that two of us in the party of three, we were recently engaged took not one, but both bottles of wine off the bill as a gift!!!

Totally shocked us.

Doesn’t get better then that.

That generous gesture says it all!!!

Many thanks and see you again very soon

Perfect for family before Pantages show. Close enough to walk to theatre. Parking great. Employees helpful. Did not get the 10% discount that the Pantages site lists if you show them tickets but reasonably priced without. Will go again.

Been to the restaurant many times. The service is both friendly and prompt.

The food recently has not been so consistent. First the bread is not worth the calories; it is cold and extremely processed. The entrees were o.k. but just o.k., especially when you consider their price.

We were at a table in the corner and the service was spotty.

We like the place but have it has been slipping in the last couple of years.

We again another great evening dining here before heading to the Pantages; great food, excellent service. We had Fettuccine Alfredo (gluten free) with chicken, Fettuccine Alfredo (gluten free) with salmon, Penne with butter and shrimp, and Fusilli with mushrooms. And we gave it four thumbs-up. Outstanding place to dine, especially before or after a show at the Pantages.

We were late about ten minutes due to parking, but happily greeted anyway and still had the option to change our dining option to patio. Our drink and dinner order was taken promptly and we were served with plenty of time to enjoy our time there (great meal) and not be rushed. It's only a two-block walk to Pantages. Arrived at the restaurant at 6:25 and got to the theater at 7:30. Our party was for 4.

Very good food, excellent service and great location! Parking was very convenient too. Only reason didn’t give it five stars is because it was a little expensive and unfortunately we got a table by the parking lot which wasn’t as pleasant as the inner tables under the lights! Otherwise “5”’ s across the board.
