Once we had sat down the waitress told us that the pizza oven was not working. Considering this is a mainly a pasta and pizza place that meant that have the menu was not available. They didn't have their alcohol licences yet so we had to walk down to CVS to get a bottle of wine. We asked the waitress for some pasta suggestions and went along with her after she praised the buccatini carbonara for the great shpae and texture of the pasta and another pasta with shrimp and mushrooms and a bisque sauce. When the pastas came, firstly the carbonara was not made with the buccatini but they had substituted in penne. Then the sauce had no pancetta, the main ingredient in a carbonara and instead had spinach?? It didn't have the usual egg flavor either. Then on tasting the shrimp pasta we realized that they had put the carbonara sauce on that one and not the bisque sauce. Even the waitress agreed it was all wrong. She tried her best but the kitchen let her down at every turn. Even the cappuccino we ordered at the end was just a shot of coffee and a cup's worth of scolding milk. Will never go back
It was a great experience except they charged my credit card 2 times.
A nice find off Melrose. Robust flavors. Excellent customer service.
Very cozy and friendly!
WE ARRIVED AND WERE GREETED WELL, THE WHITE SAUCE PIZZA WAS GREAT! TRIED DIFFERENT DISHES, I RECOMMEND THE CHICKEN PARMESAN WITH GRILLED VEGETABLES , THE HALF ROASTED CHICKEN WAS GREAT ALSO ALONG WITH THE LAVENDER LEMONADE...
I love the Sit Down in Los Feliz so was excited to see one opened up in West Hollywood near me! It's has such a fun, low-key vibe and the staff is so friendly. All the pizzas I've tried are delicious and so is the ensalada mista! Oh and it's BYOB! Dream!
