This is a small, local Italian restaurant that serves authentic Italian food. We've enjoyed everything we've ever ordered. There is a good fish that they import straight from Italy that is delicious. I often order the saltimbocca that is prepared the Roman way. It's hard...More

This is a tiny little restaurant that makes you feel as if you are in Europe. Food is good, ambiance is great, owner is very attentive, and it seems to be pretty popular with locals. Highly recommend.

Best Italian food I've had in a long time, in a small 10 table restaurant. It's not fancy inside but the food is the star. Everything we ordered was delicious. It's a mix of old and new with white linen table cloths with paper place...More

We are visiting family and decided to have a date night. We love Italian food. Small quaint, very clean. Our waiter, Osvaldo, was exceptionally helpful. He was talkative and helped my husband practice his Spanish. The food was tasty, fresh and plentiful. I couldn't resist...More

I've dined here a handful of times over the years, and Chef Vincenzo still delights with his Amalfi-based cuisine. It's a very small place which holds about 20 people (with the occasional celebrity sighting), so make a reservation to ensure seating during the dinner hour....More

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
