The “food, owners and servers are all so very Italian” at this “neighborhood favorite” next to Santa Monica Airport (and its branch on Colorado Avenue) where locals go for “delicious, unpretentious”, “reasonably priced” fare and “friendly”, “attentive” service in a “low-key” setting that’s “perfect” when “you want a tablecloth but don’t want to get dressed up.

Everything was delicious! Especially loved that there wasn't a split-plate charge so we could try more dishes. Will be coming back soon. Sad we hadn't been there sooner in the 4 years we've lived in the neighborhood.

Every single person that we encountered there was incredibly nice, incredibly friendly, a lot of hand shaking and so many smiles. Truly felt like we were extended family. Food was delicious and good sized portions. Great overall experience.
