Everything is wonderful about this place! The service food and ambiance are all first class! We had the lamb, rigatoni and seafood pasta and every dish was great. The lamb was tender, the seafood was fresh (not to mention abundant) and the home-made pasta was cooked perfectly. We also had the tiramisu and chocolate mousse for dessert which were a perfect ending to a perfect meal. We will definitely be back!

The food isn’t very seasoned or savory. Very light natural flavors of the foods that were prepared. Presentation was good. Food was prepared well, not seasoned enough for me taste.

We were 4. 3 of us are extremely sensitive to Garlic and we asked the waitress to have our dishes with as little garlic as possible. Her answer was you are in an Italian restaurant and everything here is with garlic. We don't change anything. What an answer. We have been to so many Italian restaurants across Southern CA and we have never had this issue. Was not nice of her to not even try to accommodate.

One of the things that I would change is the way the menu is written. It is difficult and confusing to read. One has to spend a little extra time trying to read the font and lightness.

Kudos to our server and the Chef for being able to prepare a lovely dish for my date, with egg-free pasta. Similarly, the lobster risotto did not disappoint.

The ambience is fine for a more casual café, but for a restaurant of this caliber the outdoor dining leaves something to be desired. It is very noisy from the street, then having crickets climbing up the wall next to our table and occasionally jumping onto it,was a distraction to be sure. I’m not blaming the restaurant for either of these, just merely observing it does detract from the ambience

We very much enjoyed this updated restaurant! Julia was an excellent server. We had the beet salad and grilled calamari to start. The salad was great, the calamari was more of a sautéed spinach dish with some calamari grilled on top but also tasted great. For dinner we had the surf and turf with an extra half lobster plus the mushroom and steak risotto which was very good. The dark chocolate mousse with tea was a perfect ending.

First time there. Not bad not great. I had a pasta special and it was just ok, it did not rock my boat and it was grossly overpriced for a plate of Spaghetti with some small pieces of Scallops and tasteless Octopus. Service was good. Dessert was nothing great (Creme Caramel). Very, very small portion and totally bland. The best part of the meal was the Ceasar Salad. It was one of the best I have ever had. I would come back just for that. Maybe I need to give it another try and probably stick with the basics and for sure stay away from the "Specials"

If you want strong (and Hollywood priced) cocktails and unseasoned food, then this is the place for you!

Overall, we were extremely disappointed. I have no reason to come back here based on the food cook and treatment from upper management.

1 Star for the Serving Staff
1 Star for food quality.
-1 Star for The Kicker

And now the gory details...

ORDERED
Beef Tartare
Beet & goat cheese salad
Lobster risotto
New York strip steak
Cocktails; Japanese and Pear

Beef Tartare aka Beef Martini; half of it was green olives, and the other half was pureed beef. It looked like cat food, and tasted of olives, sans salt.

Beet salad was lightly threatened with goat cheese (which is supposedly the 2nd key ingredient). When I asked for some more cheese, no one ever mentioned they would charge me for it! #badForm

Lobster risotto.
Probably the better of the two entrees. Lacking seasoning.

NY Steak, Ordered Black and Blue (charred outside, red in the middle)
= Fail. No char or crust. The sides weren't even seared.

The intro bread was dense, dry, and underbaked.

THE KICKER...
Before we even arrived I received a call from the Manager asking if we could arrive earlier so they could accommodate a party that came after us.

I found this extremely off putting, as it made us feel as though we had to rush so they could accommodate the impending ghost guests.

When I called back to let them know we would try to arrive sooner. They NEVER offered to do anything to thank us for considering to change our schedule to accommodate them.

When we arrived early. Same. No thanks. Nothing.

We had a great time celebrating my birthday. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer; very flavorful, and the cioppino was amazing, especially the broth. Lovely chocolate mousse for dessert. All around wonderful experience.

Overpriced. Food wasn’t good. Service was ok. When we ordered dessert we found mold in the raspberry. Instead of being a good host the serve said I will just bring out another one then taking it off the bill. Service wasn’t the good. Serve occasionally came to check up to see if things were good. Would not recommend this place.

Food was very expensive and lacked flavor. It was fine, just not great. Ordered an appetizer cheese board for $40 and it didn't come with bread or crackers. When we asked they toasted some sandwich bread for us. Seemed like an afterthought. The cocktails were excellent.

Drunk customer seated at the bar was walking around unmasked being very loud and obnoxious. I normally wouldn’t hold that against the restaurant… but the restaurant manager (possibly owner?) was laughing and encouraged the bad behavior. Food was good— but the experiences was bad. It was our first time at this restaurant… not a good first impression.

You know a restaurant is great when you return several times within a short span of time and everything is consistent. The food is unbelievable. The atmosphere is wonderful. The service is truly incredible. Steven and his staff run a wonderful establishment. We’ve taken several friends here for special events and have never been disappointed. I always order the grilled lobster and it is truly delicious. This past time we ordered Some amazing pastas, the risotto is delicious and the drinks are so tasty. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! We love it.
