My husband and I always pass by this restaurant while riding back and forth from LAX through Playa Del Rey. It was a busy Saturday, no reservations, so we waited next door the bar adjacent to the restaurant. Brian was so helpful and accomdating, he had great recommendations, but I saw Salmon Piccata on the menu and I was hooked.... More

Located not far from LAX, on a busy corner with very few parking options this restaurant is super busy. They do offer valet parking. Parked a few blocks away. The exterior of the building needs a remodel but it does add to the charm of your dining experience. There are 8-9 booths and they were reserved for folks who had... More

We stop here for dinner every time we stay up the road in the Inn. We love their traditional Italian cooking and prompt service. Our favorite dish is Shrimp fra diavlo, with the linguine and clams. The portabello mushroom ravioli is terrific, as well as some of the chicken dishes we have had in the past.

I'd eaten here many years ago, and just had a chance to take my kids for dinner while we were on our way to LAX to catch a flight. The food and service are still excellent. One of my kids (18 and 20 year old boys who enjoy large portions) had a calzone and the other had the salmon piccata,... More

My family went there to celebrate my father's birthday, and I've loved the place. I have been going there since I was little and have always satisfied. However, I don't know what happened to them, if it was just rush hour or they have new cooks, but the experience wasn't up to par. It took over 45 minutes for them... More

This place serves great Italian food with homemade ravioli and tortellini. The calamari was perfect. And the tiramisu was the best I've had in years.

What a marvelous restaurant! Great ambiance, great service, pleasant two piece background music and most importantly OUTSTANDING food. Four different meals, each one satisfied each of us. They really have this place dialed in perfectly!

I ate here with my wife the other night. I'm from New York and Italian so I'm picky and don't normally try new Italian restaurants. This was some of the most authentic Italian meals I have ever had. My server was top notch and my pasta was cooked al dente perfect. I recommend any of their specials. My highest expectations... More

This is a fun, old fashioned Italian restuarant. The food was authentic and amazing. We ordered the pesto and homemade ravioli which was incredible. The atmosphere was great, but be prepared to wait to get in, as it is a popular place. Only complaint was the waiter we had was bad. We waited a long time to get service, and... More

Good choice of food. Good service. Found the sauce with the ravioli I ordered was just too much. Nice atmosphere.
