Excellent food, service, experience. And everyone stop complaining about the fact that the restaurant like every other LA restaurant has to make do with exclusively outdoor service. Yes, you are not inside and there is street noise and traffic. It is not the restaurant's doing nor fault.
My waiter Maximillian is the best and so do the bus boys.
The people there are serious about food. Their love for Italian cuisine is so obvious. Absolutely loved!
Food was wonderful. Complex yet light . Ambiance lovely. The side patio is a wonderful addition
The food was excellent. We are not from the area as I’m sure a lot of patrons are. If you are ok with spending $200+ and leaving sober and not stuffed I would absolutely recommend. While the food was very good I do feel like I’m paying more for where I am eating and not so much for what I am eating.
Tables outside right next to the road so lots of loud traffic noise and breathing car fumes unfortunately.
This was our first time dining out in six months because of COVID and we had a lovely time. The service was excellent! Our server had great recommendations for wine and everything we ate was delicious. There was tons of space between us and the next table, all the service staff wore face masks and face shields, and rather than give us menus they gave us a code to scan with our phones that brought up the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and felt safe eating there. It was wonderful to get out for a night.
Due to Covid we were out on the patio which was fine but of course increases noise level and the ambiance could have been made a bit better with lighting that was on the table and bushes but not working. the wait staff was a bit snooty, their wine list was incredibly over priced for most of the under $100 a bottle compared to other restaurants, and although the food was good it was far from exceptional.
Food was amazing! Much better than Felix.
Overall the restaurant and service was good. But since we were outside there wasn't a nice ambiance. Also, I ordered a steak but it was not tender. It took real effort to cut it with a steak knife.
I always love the food except the crab cake- more breading than crab
Nice, romantic experience. Easy reservation and honored request for a quiet outdoor table.
Real Italian food 2 blocks from my place. And genuine and real service too.
Waiter was rather impatient and grumpy, though he softened a bit by the end of our meal. Still, we didn’t feel welcomed upon arrival or most of the evening, which was unfortunate as the food was outstanding. It was our first visit and not sure if we’ll return.
Amazing food and service
Professional, competent staff guided guests through the outside eating process (Covid). Tables were spaced properly. Umbrellas and heaters at the ready. The menu was as good as we had read in the reviews. The food - appetizers, main meal and dessert were all exceptional. Wine and Beer served.
Everything was wonderful! The food, the wine, our server was amazing. We were delighted to know that they all spoke Italian:).
Street dining is what it is.
If I am ever back in California, I will most definitely come back to eat! Everyone was on top of their service! So friendly, and the food was so good and fresh!!! It was beyond exceptional!!!!
The most delicate ravioli...so many delicious things in their menu. A place to treat yourself. Lovely staff
loved the food & service
Great spot for a date night. We dined here for Quarantine and they set everything up outside. It was very nice and quiet. The service is very attentive.
Amazing celebration of wine by glass
Great experience. Great bread. Decent food. Great vibe.
Best Italian in LA!
Always special! A place that makes your evening a special event. The food is wonderful, the service, warm and efficient. The veal chop is a treat but the sole is incredible.
This is an exceptional place. Such a romantic environment and welcoming staff. I’m sad I’ve never been there before. Now it is in my list of best spots in Santa Monica and whole LA
Fantastic meal and service!
No balsamic vinegar available. Skimpy portion of the langoustine served. Octopus was not super fresh.
Amazing food and service! The staff is so accommodating. One of the best restaurants in the LA area.
The service was spectacular! The decor is warm & dimly lit, so its perfect for special evenings.
A must: the pumpkin raviolis, seriously, and I hate pumpkin stuff usually
But it will be one of the most refined, delicately subtle délicatesse you will ever put in your mouth... you’re welcome :-)
Other raviolis worth the try, the sole in caler lemon sauce: flawless
Langoustines: very good
Their house wines and champagne excellent: no need to break the bank on luck of the draw wine list options
Service great, knowledgeable and good suggestions
Top 5 in LA
Our go to for special occasions
Very cozy placein good location. Good service, fantastic starter 5/5, main coure 4/5.
Excellent food, attentive professional service
This is our go-to for a special occasion. We know each meal will be better than the next. The staff truly wants to keep you satisfied and not worried about their next acting gig. Highly recommend this restaurant, it’s the best in town!
The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. It’s small quaint and beautiful chandeliers. The wait staff was wonderful. One of the ratings talked about noise but obviously it wasn’t noisy but I didn’t know really how to rate that. They only serve wine and beer so we went out to a drink beforehand and brought her own bottle of wine. The food was definitely memorable. Everybody loved their meal. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant
Amazing as usual. Love this place
The food is amazing! I may even go as far and say the best Italian in LA. Service here has not been always great in the past, but it was really good this time. I really love this place! Always a treat and a delight!
Food was fantastic, we absolutely loved it.
Problem was I asked for a Veno which was $90 bottle, they were out. Server brought us couple of other bottles and told us they were similar Taste and price range. Masi Compo and IL Bruciato Tenuta. We chose masi compo 2015 assuming it was similar price range as server told us. When we received our check it was $187 for a bottle. It made no sense, felt we were ripped of. Should have checked our check while we were still there not after leaving. Paid $475 for 3 people all of us vegetarians shared food and one bottle of wine.
