Second time at this restaurant. Front desk managers are bit pretentious, but it's LA. Service is good, decent wine list. Food was good, but not outrageous. Plating is very appetizing with very light sauce. Ok flavor, but some dishes may need bit for seasoning. Good...More

Restaurant has good italian food. Plenty of fish, steak and pasta. Atmosphere is very nice. Plenty of outdoor seating. Waiters are very professional. Dont be afraid to order an appetizer as portions are on the lighter side...but well prepared.

Didn't think interior was anything special, although there was a nice fire pit in the outside seating area. Steaks have a lovely golden caramelized crust, pasta is homemade and perfectly cooked. Mascarpone cheesecake is delightful. Great service!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
