The Chicken Marsala was a generous portion and pretty tasty. The Tiramisu was very good. The Insalata Caprese was the only real let-down. The tomatoes were not of high quality and have obviously been refrigerated (which kills the flavor).

Quaint little pasta restaurant where you choose a pasta, then a sauce, then your additions. Hundreds of options at a reasonable price. Warm Bread. Good wine list.

Customize your pasta dish. The place is fun and normally packed. Comfy neighborhood spot, good food and you leave full.

Very popular pasta restaurant....i arrived at 5.30pm and it was already nearly full. Straight forward old school Italian (if you ignore - as you should- the Thai or Mexican aberrations). I had the special (see photo), short rib beef ravioli....very tasty, but HUGE!

Not big place, but feels like eat in Mom's kitchen,delicious and friendly service. Recommend: Garlic Shrimp with black/white pasta and create your own pasta. Sauces and pastas are good.

We loved going here when we worked in Santa Monica. The food is really good and it's a sweet place. It's very popular though and tends to be crowded. There's usually a long wait on Friday and Sat evenings for dinner - and the place...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
