    We hadn't been here in over 3 years since we moved away. What a delight to return to this cute, european oasis in Santa Monica. The food was great and our server recommended a great wine pairing. We shared a plate of Calamari to start and it was lightly breaded and fried — not rubbery or oily. We both order a new take on our favorite Sea Urchin Spaghetti. Delicious. This time is was prepared with a little olive oil, scicilian lemon and just a hint of pepper flakes. We usually don't take dessert but had such a good time we opted for the pannacotta with berries and the ricotta cheesecake (marvelous). Hopefully we'll have an opportiunity to come back the next time we're in town. A must visit for those of you who live here. The only challenge might be Parking during the week. Worth the challenge.

    Awful experience--we arrived ontime at 5:30, well dressed seniors. The "host" showed us two awful tabes and would not budge. The restaurant was 25% occupied. He ws totally obnoxious. We walked out. This restaurant does not deserve yhour patronage. When encountering "attitude" diners should vote with their feet. Take your $$ and go sme place where they want your moneyu and your loyalty. This restaurant should be banned from open table for lack of hospitality.
