    I selected the option for outdoor seating; my email confirmation noted that. When we arrived at the restaurant, a young, condescending host saw the reservation and asked if we were comfortable sitting indoors. We are not. I noted that we selected outdoor seating on the reservation. He said they “try to accommodate” that selection, but there’s no guarantee. I told him we’d order takeout instead. He then escorts us outside – where there were a LOT of empty tables. That was irritating, but the wait staff were really nice, as always. The food was very good. Be aware that the speakers playing music are rather loud, particularly if you are seated near one.

    It is the perfect place for a quality dinner and drinks before attending a concert at the Shoreline Amphitheater. This was our second time doing so. It is only 15 minute walk to and from the parking. Our server was patient and we never felt rushed like the experience we have had in many other restaurants. I had the seafood paella and my wife had the shrimp penne. Both were outstanding. Wine and drinks were perfect.

    We really enjoyed your dishes, the pasta, pizza and even bread was outstanding! We tend to eat (and order) family style and share the dishes so that we can try a larger variety of dishes. We asked that the dishes be coursed out..meaning bring only 2-3 dishes at a time. Apparently he didn't understand this and everything basically came out at once. Not the end of the world, still a very nice restaurant. We would come here often if we lived in the area.

    Five of us had dinner the night of a concert at Shoreline. We sat outside and it was gorgeous...the glass chandeliers, the tall cypress trees and colorful foliage. Martin was our waiter and was perfect...fun, attentive, resourceful. The cocktails were excellent and the food delicious...from the Lasagne to the shortribs to the burrata cheese appetizer. Such a lovely dinner. We shall return.

    Food and ambiance was exceptional quality. Food was well prepared.Service was meh for the price. But not horrible. Our waiter was on break and didn't know we had been seated he said. The tip was already included ( for only 2 ppl) and might explain a slight lack of urgency you can sense. The pasta quality and braised short rib was made perfect. Appetizer good but wayyy overpriced even by the area and average price-point of restaurant. Despite the gripes, I'd go again for the food and ambiance.

    Dinner pre show at Shoreline. Beautiful setting, lovely tableware and glasses. Service very attentive. Prices everywhere have risen since 2020. $8.75 for a cappuccino is taking advantage of the situation. Waiter said there were only 3 desserts so we did not ask to see a menu. Price should have been listed with desserts. It is a distance from where we live. Probably won’t return in the near future.

    I've been to this restaurant several times and I rate the experience 5 stars every time. This time was a little different. Food and ambience were outstanding. The service and the prices were quite disappointing, however. Our server greeted us with an expression of absolute boredom and lack of enthusiasm. Further, the tone of his voice was very low-pitched and monotone. We had a few questions, which he answered with one word answers, not adding any value whatsoever. All in all, we got the impression that he did not want to be at work that day. Regarding prices, they seemed to have risen considerably since my previous visit, not more than a year ago. $30 for a bowl of penne? I don't mind spending more money in exchange for an overall exceptional dining experience. But this time, they fell short.

    Ate here for a pre-concert dinner. Had 4:30 reservations but arrived 20 mins early. We were seated immediately in their outdoor patio area. Service & food were excellent. I had the Fettuccine Francesca and was very satisfied. Others in my party enjoyed their meals as well. It is on the pricey side - $360 for the 4 of us which wasn’t horrible considering it included several drinks, tax & 20% automatic tip. Our server deserved his 20%. I was worried we would be dressed too casual for this restaurant but many others there were casual too. I’d go back again.

    This is not my first time here. Every time has been great. Servers are always very attentive and food is great. Today the server got a couple things wrong on our orders but he very quickly fixed. Just hate to see food wasted. Love the patio in the back. It’s my favorite place to sit whenever we go. I’d highly recommend this restaurant food is always great and staff is terrific.

    The food was good but not great. We like the flavoring of the grilled octopus and lamb chops but the duck confit has no meat for the 40 plate. Don't feel the food was worth the price. In addition, the waiter automatically added 20% tip to our bill for a party of 4 so not too fond of that since he came to check on us once during the dinner.

    The wine is outrageously priced, and the corkage is $50. We asked if we could split the beet salad as an appetizer and they refused and brought it on one plate. The calamari was excellent, as was the salad. The chicken piccata was disappointing with the sauce too thick and the mashed potatoes mediocre. Staff was very nice.
