Came in with a 7pm outside seating reservation and we were seated immediately. It was a beautiful evening for alfresco dining and the restaurant was hoping for a Wednesday night.
Both our server and Sommelier were excellent.

Prosciutto bruschetta-crescenza cheese, grilled asparagus, truffle, grana padano

Italian Meatballs-marinara, pecorino, grilled bread

Arancini- crispy mushroom risotto stuffed with scamorza cheese & served with red sauce

Chicken gigli pasta-toasted pine nut, garlic, basil, crispy caper

Dessert
Budino
Bombolini

We loved all our dishes. The arancini were the least favorite. Great dinner and ambiance.

The food isn't anything spectacular. Stay away from the calimari... unless you like greese.

Service was stale and required having to hunt them down to place and order or even get the check at the end of the meal.

We had one night in Santa Monica and this restaurant was close to our hotel. Food was fantastic and restaurant has a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend

This restaurant was directly across from our hotel so we decided to check it out. It's a huge restaurant with seating inside and out.
The food was decent If nothing particularly memorable. The service was a bit disappointing-we were waiting quite some time to be served.
Overall a decent enough restaurant but nothing special.
