Like usual, Mara, the owner takes care of her guests. All the food is prepared with love by the chef Massimo. The ingredients used in the preparation of each plate are fresh. They only use organic ingredients. I am from Montreal, Canada and when I come in LA, i don’t miss the chance to go eat at the amazing restaurant! I recommand this place without any hesitation!

Amazing spot and perfectionist service with atmosphere that makes you feel that you are in Italy. The owner Mara seated us on a wonderful table with her lovely smile and started to talk to us and asking us what we usually like and after she recommended some of there specialties, advice!! "listen to her" she knows the best!! Even though we order more than what we should for two persons we finished all the dishes!! That's how good the food was. We had 2 appetizers, 1 antipasti, 1 pasta and 2 main dishes and ended with desserts which were all amazing. The Chef came over and greeted us for a moment, very polite and amazing human being, you can tell how passionate he is about his food and how he makes it comes from the heart. We thanked him for the great experience we had, you don't need to go to Italy because it came to you.
Calamari is a must to have!!
The lasagna was so good and very light!! and so fresh, never ever had something like that before!! another must!! Veal chop and rib eye were cooked in perfect way.. amazing place to eat real authantic food..

We had such a good time the night before, we came back for a second bite at the Apple. The restaurant is fantastic and the food is very authentic Italian.

The truffle pasta dish was to die for.

Mara, the front of house, is very sweet and takes great care of her customers.

Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who is looking for authentic Italian dishes, served in a lovely atmosphere.

This was the first time we eat at this restaurant. Our Hostess greeted us right away, with enthusiasm. Turns out, she and her husband own the restaurant.

We were in northern Italy last June and this restaurant comes as close to "being in Italy" as we have had since our trip. We live in San Fran, where are lots of Italian restaurants, but this one really is special.

Sfixio has truly excellent food - fresh, very high quality ingredients, great menu with both standards and unique choices, and wonderful preparation. Ambiance is quiet and stylishly sophisticated. Service is warm and friendly. Every dish we have had in multiple visits has been exceptional.

I was hoping to add another go-to Italian restaurant to my list, but Sfixio will not be it. While the hostess/co-owner is lovely and welcoming, the food and ambience are not commensurate. The plating is odd (plates much too large for the portions), the quality of the food is just above average, and the decor and lighting do not come across as polished or refined. We will be sticking with Angelini.

An absolute gem of real Italian-Tuscan cuisine! No heavy, creamy, mushy pasta-stuff, but, original, light, fresh, innovative, yet traditional Italian dishes with fish, meat, pasta, salads and great desserts. Very relaxing atmosphere, ambient light and music, outstandingly friendly service with heart and passion!
Must go!

Excited to find a new neighborhood gem! We have passed Sfixio many times and finally decided to try it out. We are not sorry we did. Most pleasant quiet atmosphere. A husband and wife team who take great pride in what they serve. We are pesacatarian and there were multiple fish and vegetable options to choose from. The branzino was exceptional as was the tuna carpaccio, the artichoke salad and the vegetable pasta. All sauces are very light without heavy tomato or garlic flavors. We will definitely return again soon.

This was our fourth time at Sfixio. We love it. We were on the Amalfi Coast a few years ago and this restaurant reminds us of that dining experience. Beautiful food, expertly prepared and served, European style portions (that means human size as opposed to behemoth size) and a wonderful modern, chic ambiance. This time I had the special. Oxtail ragu. Oh My God! It was sublime. My wife had the salmon.....exquisite. We'll be back many more times.

We chose Sfixio because we wanted to share this wonderful experience with Italian-savvy friends who had never been here. Massimo prepared his usual perfect meal, but this evening also stepped in as a charming host. The food, the ambience, the service, the hospitality provided as welcoming and warm and wonderful an evening as we have come to rely on in this gem of a restaurant.

Love the food and decor and there is a small lounge that is great -at this restaurant but it isnt very busy so there is really no vibe!

A couple of suggestions:
Portions are way to small for the price-the food is great but this is an issue
Need a happy hour to draw some new customers it will create a nice fresh vibe!

Nice decor and music wasn't obnoxiously loud. We were warmly welcomed, seated promptly, and the table had a rose and chocolates for Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, it all went downhill from there. Service was unbearably slow (at least 20 minutes between each dish after finish the prior course) and food was subpar. The tuna tartare's appearance was very unappetizing and was not fresh. The pasta with caviar tasted distinctly like pasta water and the truffle pasta was overcooked and mushy. Both the Chilean sea bass and grilled lamb entrees were also overcooked. The sea bass was slightly rubbery and the lamb was well done. We sent the lamb entree back to the kitchen, only to have the chef storming out and berating us about how we don't know how to eat lamb (2 of the 3 pieces were cooked well-done, one was barely pink which he used to tell us that it was cooked perfectly). We were in so much shock that we didn't know what to say. We elected to leave mid-meal so the kind hostess and wife of the chef offered us wine to go with our dessert to stay, but we don't drink and we just couldn't accept after the abhorrent interaction with the husband/chef. We just couldn't and didn't want stay any longer. We paid for what we ordered and left. I sincerely hope that our experience was anomalous, especially given the other glowing reviews. I have never had a dining experience like this and I hope I never will again.

Sfixio is one of our favorite restaurants, and for sure our favorite Italian restaurant! Not only is the food authentic, but creative, delicious, fresh, organic, and made to order. They do not own a freezer...rather, they shop each day for the freshest ingredients. What more can one ask??? The owners, Mara (at the front) and Massimo (our chef), are like family. They are warm and always happy to add to the Sfixio family! Highest rating ever! By the way...don't miss the truffle pasta!

Sfixio was a pleasure from the moment we stepped through the door. The restaurant is run by the chef and his lovely wife, who greeted us warmly. Softly lit, with just the right level of music, this place is a rarity in Los Angeles--a place where you can talk and here your dining companions' responses!

That alone would be enough to bring me back, but then there is the food--excellent Italian dishes that are lovingly prepared with super-fresh ingredients. And the service is delightful--
we felt like cherished patrons. Sfixio is a very special place, indeed.
