We came in as we wanted to eat a nice pizza, unfortunately it was a terrible one. No mozzarella cheese, but a sort of dutch cheese on the margherita pizza. The soup was stale. Really really terrible italian food.

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

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
