Located in Irvine Spectrum the restaurant/store is pleasant, lots of tables in or outside. The food though is quite pricey and actually not that great. It looks nice but tastes rather bland.

Excellent place to go to get great pasta! you won't even know its gluten free! The burnt brussel sprouts are delicious as well. Great wine selection and they make some serious craft cocktails! Bar and table servers are very helpful.

Menu is not your typical Italian. Caesar salad with kale, quite tasty. Menu is eclectic, guess thTs a good description, so if your looking for Italian with a twist you'll love it. Atmosphere is open and loud but very nice.
