Being mothers day, a lot of restaurants were booked out in Santa Monica but fortunately we found a table here. The place had an authentic Italian vibe with polite staff and reasonably priced meals. I can honestly say that the meatballs are the best I've...More

Very fresh ingredients, service was good. It wasn't busy, so I anticipated a little better service. Good Italian restaurant.

Simple, straightforward restaurant with good service, reasonable prices, and a full menu of Italian dinner options, including very good pasta and more substantial dinner entrees. I now know that if/when I return to Santa Monica, I can find a good, predictable dinner without searching.

Santa Monica
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
