The personable waiter Greg was quick and friendly. The cheesecake as others have said is amazing - more like a pound cake. The entries were very good and the joint was jumping. It's crowded seating so don't expect an intimate dinner but great nonetheless.

This place is a find. First, bring your own wine and no corkage. Second I have not had a bad meal here. I like to order fish. The meals come with vegetables and potatoes. The salmon is wonderful. I've also had really good sea bass...More

We've eaten downtown for 10 years and never tried this place. We should have. The restaurant is owned and run by true Italians. The food is wonderfully fresh and delicious, with all the usual Antipasti, Insalate and Zuppe you'd expect. Our main courses were Tagliatelle...More

Friendly place, big portions, good prices. Great if you're staying at nearby Level Furnished but don't want to cook for yourself. NOTE: no liquor license yet so plan to BYOB.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
