I went here recently with a group of 8 ladies to celebrate my stepmom’s 80th birthday, and really enjoyed it. It is a small restaurant and wine bar, with 2 dining rooms - seats maybe 50 or so people. Even on a Thursday evening, it...More

It's not often enough that I find a restaurant where the staff are all proud of the establishment. The employees here take great pride in the food, and the busy restaurant. From the pre-arrival phone call to make a reservation (thanks, Rosario) to the end...More

This is a very friendly, busy restaurant. Dinner was delicious, and the service was prompt. We found reasonably priced wines on the wine menu that were really good. Prices were very fair, will definitely be having dinner here again!

Haven't been in a while but when my friend said she was craving Italian food I knew I had to bring her here. We've never had anything here that wasn't fantastic so I knew she'd love it as much as we do. She's a traveler...More

Had lunch here today and really enjoyed the experience. I have a house in Italy and know Italian food. What is on offer here is the real deal and quite creative, going much beyond the usual. The stuffed baby artichokes were excellent, the pasta very...More

We come from Chicago and my Italian dining experience has been the authentic stuff from Taylor Street. Then we went to Italy and our expectations of Italian food rose. Moving to Long Beach, we struggled to find a restaurant that met up to our past...More
