Being from Los Angeles, we do know good food, and this restaurant has excellent food. The restaurant is elegantly appointed with rich woods, and a warm and inviting fireplace. The owner, Giovanni and his son Elia are gracious hosts and offer lively conversation. Everything we have ever eaten here from antipasto to soup to main courses has been outstanding. We... More

This restaurant is an absolute gem! The food is hearty and delicious, but prepared with a educated hand. Every ingredient was fresh and the preparation was inspired. Our antipasto was diverse and very tasty. Cheeses, meats, olives, bruschetta, grilled vegetables. It was a festival of flavor! The pasta dish melted in our mouths and the steak with barolo sauce brought... More

Having friends visiting from Latin America was an excuse to offer an extraordinary culinary experience and they really appreciated en enjoyed it very much!!! This restaurant offers a wide food and wine selection affordable to any pocket. The personalized attention from its owner Giovanni and staff makes any moment a really memorable one.

The owners are friendly and the menu changes. The steak is out of this world. A nice selection of local Sagrantino wines which go very well with the steak. It is often crowded late on weekends. However, during the week it is very quitet.

This restaurant has a good and bad reputation. The food was slightly above average but the service was terrible and the price unbearable. It is unlikely to be a place for a revisit.

We were 8 people: 4 adults and 4 kids. The kids loved the pizza (per meter). I shared a steak Fiorentina with my friend. I think it was the best steak I have ever eaten. The restaurant is not super cheap but the ratio price/quality is still excellent!

Our experience was ok, food was nice ( you can hardly go worng anywhere in this area) but we did not get what we ordered. Nice environment, lively staff. Ask for the menu before you order. In several restaurants they tend to tell you about the menu rather than presenting you the list.

Thank Clamic
