Our basketball team was in town for a tournament. We had 11 for dinner. The food was delicious, the portions were large and there was a very pleasant atmosphere. Prices were also very reasonable. I would definitely go back.

It was my first time to visit and had the sea bass for a bday lunch with friends and it was very good. The bread, pasta, prosciutto, tomato and mozzarella appetizers were deliciouso. I will definitely be back for more.

We are so sick of eating at the Italian chain restaurants in Irvine! We came across this little gem of a neighborhood restaurant in Tustin and were so happy that we stopped in. They make the focaccia and tiramisu in house and when they serve...More
