Nice tucked in Italian Restaurant with modern dishes, Best location is the outdoor patio and bar area. Shrimp pasta dishes are great and you'll be boxing up for the next day

Food is amazing. The garlic bread is sliced, buttered, dipped in parmesan cheese and cooked fresh in house, as are the minestrone soup and Papa Lorenzo's house salad. Definitely save room for the homemade tiramisu or chocolate cake. I've had both and they are excellent! It can be a lot of food, but the leftover pastas are even better the... More

Spaghetti Bender was ony a few steps from our hotel. A family-run restaurant we chose over the more touristy Cappy's. Service was okay, any ambiance marred by a woman who did not stop talking the whole time we were there and a family who constantly kept their precocious son expounding on everything at the top of his voice.

The soup was the only way we could get our small children to eat vegies. Our son took several "first dates" here. A local tradition. There may be Italian restaurants with better food, but all and all, this is a great value.

Nice little Italian Restaurant on the Pacific Coast Highway, Looks like your Grannys house inside. Lovely home cooked food some of the most authentic i have experienced in the US. Obviously some genuine Italian influence as I sampled some Salice Salentino wine which was perfect with my Special seafood Pasta and rarely seen outside its native Puglia. The Soup and... More
