    Thanksgiving dinner. I will be upfront about my preference, no live music during a meal. If I want to listen to music, I will go to a bar or turn on the radio. Restaurants can be very noisy and then adding music on top of it… Makes it very difficult for people to hear each other. Food was delicious, apple tart, and apple strudel for dessert were less than inspired. The pumpkin cheesecake was good. I enjoy the ambience here.

    We really enjoyed La Traviata. We are from NYC and had just arrived in Long Beach for a wedding. We found the restaurant on Open Table and decided to try it. Our server, Bobbi, was outstanding and the food was as well. My wife had the salmon which was perfectly cooked and I had the sausage fettuccine. I told the server, and then Mario the owner, that the pasta dish was as good as our favorite Italian restaurants in NYC. Highly recommend.

    I ate here with my boyfriend for our 3 year anniversary and it was amazing. From start to finish everything about it was perfect. We were sat very quickly on a Wednesday evening (me made a reservation but it didn’t really make a difference). Shortly after being taken to our table we were brought bread and waters. We had the honor of having the owner of the restaurant check on us periodically throughout the night. The cocktails and the food alike were amazing. I filled up on bread and appetizers and wasn’t able to finish my entree because the portions were well sized. You definitely get what you pay for here and we will be back to for our next celebration!

    Friday night at 5pm. Seated immediately. Nice size place. Very inviting décor. High ceilings and chandeliers. Hope was my waitress. Very attentive. Bread was delicious. Went with the Mozzarella Caprese salad. Just enough balsamic. I just felt like pasta and asked to go off the menu and she said "Of course." Just like that. A dish of spaghetti that was cooked perfectly al dente. A glass of Chianti Classico and Prosecco and the night was complete. Very impressed with the restaurant and would not hesitate to go back. Highly recommend.

    Not that impressed. The booth bench needs replacing— I felt like I was sitting in a bucket and even my date who is 10” shorter than me was looking down at me. The ravioli was flavorless and the bread was old. Our waitress was very nice.

    This was an outing for my daughter’s birthday and she chose the restaurant. I hadn’t been here for awhile and had forgotten how much I like this special place! Not only is the setting quite pleasant but there was a jazz trio to enjoy. As usual, the owner Mario, was present to be sure everything was running smoothly.

    I went here last night with my boyfriend, and the whole experience was amazing. It was my first time there, and Mario is such a kind person and greeted me and took care of me the minute I walked in. He deserves 5 stars along with my server Hope she was also so lovely and very attentive. The atmosphere is very beautiful and the food was delicious. 10/10 recommend this place if you love Italian food definitely come to this place. I will be back! Thank you so much!

    I made reservations here to celebrate my birthday with friends. Upon arrival the hostess notified us that they would be closing by 9pm, our reservation was for 8:30pm. They didn’t have a table available for us when we got there on time. Then the server rushed us to order as the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes. He never came to check if we needed anything after taking our food order, the restaurant not extremely busy. We all only got one round of drinks and the Food temperature and taste was as if it was microwaved. This place use to be spectacular, the ambiance is not there, the food is mediocre and the serves is close to non existent. I will not be going back to this place.

    Everything was delightful. The portions were well sized, not oversized, but enough to feel satisfied. The service was just impeccable, it felt like fine dining, but with an air of home. The owner Mario came by to check in on us, and while service was on point, it still felt like a nice Italian restaurant should feel - comfortable. I got the lasagna and my boyfriend got the special that night of the chicken marsala and both were wonderful.
