This really is a very nice little place off the beaten path in Burbank. Across from the big studios of Warner Bros. Indoor and outdoor seating. Offstreet parking. Pastas are nicely done. Good wine list. Good prices too.

Came to eat here before a show taping. Wasn't too crowded but enough people to know that it was an OK place to eat. All the dishes for our table were great even if they did take a little while to come out. If you...More
