    We were looking for a place that stayed open late night after working an event that day that ended at 8 pm. This placed popped up and I made a reservation really fast and easy on open table and within the hour we were seated with a glass of wine. Very helpful and friendly staff. The sea bass is amazing!

    Very nice staff, starting with the hostess. The food was excellent, including the free calamari for joining the rewards program. Love the berry lemonade and vodka sauce pasta and seafood mix entree. Everything was fresh and tasty.

    The pasta was drowning in too much sauce. The flavor was good, but diminished by the amount of sauce

    Highly recommended. This was our first time to be in the restaurant. The food was fantastic! The seafood was cooked so perfect with very good presentation. The pasta was very fresh with good combination of hardness and softness. Our waiter was very polite and helpful.

    Beautiful dining room; quieter than many restaurants. Service was prompt and asked if we had deadlines for a performance. Excellent food. Very attractive plating and served at hot temperature. Prices are on par with nice restaurants. Very convenient location if you are attending an event at the California Theater.

    We were surprised to see so many diners when we arrived at 6:00. Maybe they were going to the theatre as were we. The food was very good! First, the tasty bruschetta. I had the Casarecce Al Pesto E Pollo. Delicious pesto cream sauce and generous amounts of chicken and sundried tomatoes. We didn't have time for dessert, but I would have ordered the tiramisu. We will be back for another lovely evening.
