If you have all the time in the world – From the time we entered the restaurant until the time we walked out, 1 1/2 hour hours later....we still didn't have our food and it wasn't like they were bursting at the seams. We are extremely go with the flow people but after about an hour from arrival at the restaurant, we asked the status of meal and were advised that it would be coming "any minute". Unfortunately the manager who took our order & to whom we asked the status of our order...it really wasn't important. They proceeded to bring us the order of a table who arrived 30 minutes after us and that was the last straw. When we stated we were going to leave (at least 10 minutes after our initial inquiry after the status of our order ) we were assured our order could be up in 5 minutes---DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!
Save your money. Seriously. – Like another reviewer, my friend and I really, truly wanted to this place to be a gem. Driven by it several times and thought we'd finally check it out. We were sorely disappointed. The service was terrible, and the food was far worse. We ordered sautéed calamari, which turned out to deep-fried. Also ordered one of the specials, which was priced $10 more than the most expensive entree and still was essentially store bought pasta, drenched in Ragu with poor quality seafood... garnished with Kraft parmesan cheese. Honestly, do yourself and your wallet a favor - stay away.
Really disappointed – I really wanted this to be a good place. I took my wife and little boy to this place, thinking we would all have a casual and fun evening, without having to drive too far. Once we arrived we were left waiting outside, in a spot that seemed an to be a kitchen or waiting area or storage--not sure. I was offered wine while we waited but didn't want to sip while while standing in the parking lot. After a short while we were seated. The table was OK, except for the fact that there was a large projection screen TV showing the game. I wanted to escape the TV at home! The food ws really sub-par and even a bit salty. The menu was very, very boring.
Real Italian – This place has the best Italian that I've found in the WestLA area. The service is good and the prices may seem a bit high, but you get what you pay for. If I had one thing to say bad about this place is that they use dried herbs to flavor the olive oil used for dipping bread. Other than that, I have no complaints. After eating here, I have no more reason to go to SF or Brooklyn for Italian cuisine
