We booked for three people and were seated upstairs which was great. The food is Mediterranean style and the wine from France and Italy everything was perfect and delicious we loved it all! Most dishes are to share between the table which is great.

I went for a mid-week dinner with 2 friends. By 9pm they had run out of burgers (pretty poor for a place that is advertised to be open until midnight). I ordered a $25 pasta dish that could only be described as kid's size menu....More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
