The food was good but I was disappointed with the wine selection. I wanted a glass of Chardonnay and there was only one option. I can’t believe that a restaurant in California would only offer one Chardonnay by the glass.

I love the Gorgonzola and walnut pasta best. The service has always been good. Easy to get to from the pier or new LRT.

They don’t take reservations so you have to wait in line, dinner is really very good, the servings are generous and all for not a lot of money. Service is good. Lunch, however sucks, skip it.

This is a GREAT place. It’s the best meal we’ve had since arriving in Cali several days ago. The employees were extremely welcoming and friendly!! (Also the first time we’ve experienced that on this trip.) Our waiter’s name was Juan Carlos and we loved him!!...More

This was a indication from our hotel (courtyard marriot st monica), just one block from it. It looks small and you may not want to go there but it will surprise you! With a great menu on pasta “italian/american”-style, the food is really good and...More

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
