    Nice new Italian Restaurant in Belmont Shore. Nicely built-out and furnished, great wait staff and food was well presented, very tasty and drinks made to perfection. Enjoyed our experience indoors all though a little loud for my poor hearing. Can't wait for a slightly warmer day to experience the outdoor patio area.

    We had a delayed start (with service) but once we were served everything was excellent! Our waiter made up with his friendly service and allowing us to exchange our drinks that didn’t fit our taste buds. Food was delicious. Definitely coming back!

    Food quality was good but service was lacking from initial greet time to lack of checking back on entrees, initial beverage order and beverage refills (could not order additional wine) check presentation and payment. Slow service with minimal hospitality.

    The pizza Bianca and margherita were amazing. The drinks were a bit weak, and the cannoli was excellent! Ambiance was great, as was the service! The only drawback was the sound level, but I will be back!

    Considering it was busy but not real busy or all tables taken- service very slow. The tap water tasted like gutter water. Our table sat with dirty dishes between new dishes brought in. Italian service helper kept telling us she would bring utensils or pick up dishes but instead spent over 15 to 20 minutes chatting with people. She rarely did any real help. Spent a lot of time telling people she was from Italy. Never looked around to see if any table needed help. We were only checked on once by our waiter and we were there nearly 2 hours! Waiting waiting for our meal, for clean up of the table- for clean utensils. Food was very bland, little to no flavor. $200.00 bill for bad service and flavorless food. Cesar salad very bad. Eggplant bland, spaghetti no flavor at all, chicken dish- little to no flavor. Skimping on ingredients. Food in Italy taste way better than this, and the service is always on point and helpful.

    The pizza was so delicious. A true, authentic Italian pizza. Yes, that means slighted soft in the middle. The crust and dough taste fresh and melted in my mouth. The espresso martini was one of the best I've had in Long Beach. The cappuccino for dessert hit the spot. I will be back. The server Lu aka Ludovica was fabulous.

    Experience was excellent. Service was superb. Ambiance is one of the best in Long Beach. A few things to tighten up: (1) fix the front door, (2) fix unsightly things around the restaurant (e.g. random fire extinguisher on wall, messy server areas), (3) bathroom should smell better as soon as you walk in, and there should me more distinctive art or decoration in the bathroom, and finally (4) all food runners should be 100% meticulous with presentation of food as it comes out and carefully hold plates (e.g., I watched a male food runner deliver a desert to a table and the whipped cream and mint leaves slipped right off the chocolate onto the side of the plate ruining the presentation). Otherwise, AMAZING food. And drinks were also great. I’d come back for sure.

    HUUUge “Eat, Pray, Love” fan so I obviously had to give it a go & especially after 3 long years of anticipation to open – the pie did not disappoint. We ordered it all & would do it all over again with most likely the exact same menu below - Cacio. 10/10

    I understand the restaurant just opened about a month ago but I would think the training for the wait staff would be better. We didn’t have a designated waiter so it was difficult trying to track someone who was assigned to our table. The food runners were amazing minus one gal. They were more attentive than the wait staff. Unless this restaurant has a different business model for waiting tables, but it seemed like we were attended by 4 different people (the ones with the jean aprons) every time we needed something. The food however was phenomenal! Although we heard mixed reviews, our pizza and pasta were great.

    Pleasant atmosphere. Below average service, from greeting to leaving. Server took over 4 minutes to acknowledge our table and did so by saying he was “going to help us out”. It’s a full service restaurant, there is no helping out. There is service to be provided, not by us but by the staff. Drink order took several minutes to arrive - coke and water. They seem to use a tiered delivery service. The initial contact person “greets” and takes the order and delivers the initial drinks. Pizza is delivered by a different person and the kitchen entree’s another person. None of them inquired if we needed or wanted anything nor did they offer refills, cheese, pepper flakes or other. The initial contact person arrives after we are nearly finished to offer us a very small serving or Parmesan cheese, chili flakes and another condiment. Inquired about soda refill and was told yes and never returned with the soda (was noted on final check as “refill”). Pizza Margherita was good. Very crips outer crust. Just a bit on the flimsy/soggy side for the under crust and very little basil. Spaghetti Pmodoro was pleasant, but lacked flavor other than bitter. No garlic or basil flavor. Surprising on the quality of service and food as this is not a single restaurant but one of now 4, so you would think they would have, at the very least, the customer forward service front and center. I would like to give the restaurant another shot, just not sure I would recommend it to others at this time.

    We were sat right away, but then no one approached our table for over 15 minutes. We watched other tables that were sat after us, get water & drink service. When we finally got someone’s attention, the gave us water, took our drink order & assured us that our server would be by. No such luck… another long wait. Anyhow, the food & drinks were great, but the actual service was sub par. As a side note, the music was so loud that it was difficult to have a conversation… and the furniture is cheap… the tables are small, and the chairs are uncomfortable, hard to move into the table, etc. all in all we will go back for the food, but won’t continue to go back if the service is anything like it was on Friday night.

    Went here for lunch. Food was very good. The risotto appetizer and beet salad were excellent and enough for two to share. The pizza was huge and very good. The cocktails were also excellent, and the affogato for dessert was divine and just the right amount. The ambiance is great, but when it starts getting to capacity, it does get very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation with the person across the table. The service was outstanding...the best service I've had at a restaurant in quite a while. They have a very nice full bar, and it looked like they make a mean negroni, but I didn't get a chance to try one... definitely will next time, and there will definitely be a next time. Can't wait to take my husband here.

    Looks pretty inside but it is very loud and the tables are very uncomfortable to sit at. We got the caprese salad and the portion size was good but the tomatoes were hard, flavorless and not good. Probably our fault for ordering tomatoes out of season. The eggplant appetizer was not hot and the sauce was bland. At least our pasta was hot and tasty. For me it was too expensive for so so food. When the patio opens maybe will try it again.

    I had a reservation and was kept waiting for a table to free up. When they finally found a table after a 10 minute wait after my reservation time, the service was terrible. Our drink order took 15 minutes to arrive. I had zero interest in ordering a second drink. This place is going to have to improve a lot to get me to ever want to go back again.

    Overall a good experience been to the other one in Westwood about the same quality of food. The noise level is extremely high, waiters and waitresses were confused when delivering food items, especially during the check. A good place to have a quick bite to eat and a good simple dinner.
