I just love this quaint little Italian restaurant in old town Tustin. Famiky ran by mom and her daughters. On a beautiful Thursday we were able to sit outside while enjoying our lunch. I am a creature of habit and absolutely love the lasagna here which comes with fresh baked bread and a nice size salad. My friend got the... More

Just a hidden gem. Doesn't look like much. In small strip mall. But food is wonderful. Had grilled veil chop with pasta cooked in garlic and olive oil. Just wonderful Mother and daughter team. Even though I only go there when in town on business, they remember me It is worth the trip. It's small so go early

They make my dinner just the way I like it with many modifiers and they remember what I like. I love their chicken parmesan with spinach instead of pasta! Family like atmosphere and I can't say enough glowing things about their quaint little restaurant.
