    Very tasty small plates, especially the Italian Meatballs with Creamy Polenta and Proscuitto Bruschetta were delicious! Cocktails were generous and really yummy too. I had the Sfumato, excellent balance of smoky Mescal and grapefruit aperitivo! The crowd noise level is always exciting, but we chose quieter outside patio seating with cozy heat lamps. Great place for sharing with friends!

    The food and the service were very good. Our waiter, Chad, was knowledgeable, efficient, and charming. However, the noise level was so high that my wife couldn't converse easily, although we were sitting next to each other. Besides the noise of the other patrons, they played loud music in the background which was unnecessary.

    This is a good Italian restaurant. I have been to more than one of their places and they all seem to be consistently good. The truffle garlic bread is not to be missed. It is the only place I have ever seen it on a menu and delicious. The pasta dishes are also very good. I have never tried their pizza, but they look fantastic. Servers are always attentive and friendly. The ambiance here is comfortable in a large room with outdoor patio seating.

    We have been here many times over the past 4 years, even got take-out during Covid. Clearly, something has changed. We started with appetizers. We were informed it was taking longer than normal (we got there at 4:30 on a Sunday) bc they wanted our bread and meatballs to come out together. So we waited patiently. Bread came - no meatballs. 6 minutes later the meatballs came. The ricotta under the meatballs was slightly cold and the balls were slightly underdone. Our entire meal come out 3 minutes later. The waiter apologized and put the food around the table which we decided to eat so it wouldn’t get cold. I got the chicken parm. It was so dry. The chicken was pounded paper thin and thickly breaded as though it was meant for chicken picatta. Once u put a red sauce and layer it with cheese and bake again, it was like chicken jerky. There was a side of what they called possibly noodles with an Alfredo sauce?!? It literally had no taste….no salt, no butter, no cream, very dry also. It just literally had no taste. Now, remember we have eaten here many many times over the past 4 years and have never had a complaint. My husband got the re-invented Bolognese. It too was not to their normal standard and ate about 3 bites. Our waiter noticed and apologized and told us he could bring out something else, but by that time we were kind of done with it all. Oh, forgot to mention that I had a glass of tea. The waiter took it to get me more, and then never brought it back. After he came back to see if we wanted some dessert (about 10 mins later) I said yes and I would like my tea. He apologized and brought it back….warm and 2 pieces of ice. We did have a lovely wine! I really don’t know if there has been a management change or what’s going on or maybe they had a really bad off night, but all around we had a Terrible dinner. Our bill with tip was around $200.

    We were seated immediately on a Friday night. The food was delicious and our server was simply amazing. The manger was there making sure everyone was content with their meal. Super great experience. Would definitely recommend ! The food was so good I almost wanted to order another plate just because I wanted to have more of it.

    Did not care for the Seasonal Vegetable Salad.....used to be great. Exchanged for Caesar Salad that was good. My friend had a tomato and Burrata Salad that she seemed to enjoy. The Grilled Bread was delicious. I enjoyed the Spicy Rigatoni Vodka. Service was good. We shared one glass of wine between the two of us. Total bill was $77.18 plus tips

    The manager was not accommodating and insisted on splitting our group although the place was about 25% occupancy (all the time we were there). The server was the one that convinced her to have us, probably by adding one of the tables to his section from the adjacent relatively empty section. When we sat down he stated, "would you like to start with some garlic bread we got very good garlic bread", and we said sure, the next thing we were stuck with $60 worth of garlic bread ($15 per plate). As the parent company is the Cheesecake factory, I think they need to get the employees of this new chain into training sessions before they spoil this nice place. we were their 09-06-2022.

    My parents came to visit me all the way from Spain, I took them there, I was afraid, because my dad is really allergic to gluten, and the GLUTEN FREE food was good and they were really respectful. No cross contamination! The other food that had gluten was also really tasty.

    I’ve come here multiple times and can only say good things about previous times. This time around, our service was terrible. Our server neglected us to no end and even forgot our meals. After ordering, we received our appetizers 10 minutes later. Not too bad of a wait time. But after out appetizers, we waited over 30 minutes for our two pizzas. People around us got pizzas that arrived after us. However, the people next to us were also forgotten. After we flagged down a server that wasn’t ours, the manager came and apologized. Didn’t offer any type of compensation or credit for the ridiculous wait time or neglect. Just a superficial sorry and the food will be right out. 15 minutes later we got our pizza. I’ll give them a second chance but man was it a disappointing experience.

    Centrally located and convenient for anyone visiting Santa Monica, this is a good place for outdoor seating well-adapted to Covid and where the noise level is low enough that conversation is pretty easy. But it is not a destination restaurant; the food is incredibly average. For me, it works best as a place to meet a friend for a drink and appetizer or for a work meeting.

    The food was very good. Service was slow. They have a bomba sauce to dip the pizza crust in, which was not broth by out until 15 minutes after the pizza. Suggest you ask for they and their housemade n NB atinara right away. Caesar dressing is very heavily flavored a/ anchovy paste 🤢. Overall, it was decent, but not great.
