We just had dinner at the Recommended --- Spaghetti Bender. We were there for dinner. We loved it and will go back again. It was romantic inside, played beautiful Sinatra music, dimly lit, nice bar, nice cocktails, good Server. Very friendly. I love the place and...the food was FABULOUS.

Food is amazing. The garlic bread is sliced, buttered, dipped in parmesan cheese and cooked fresh in house, as are the minestrone soup and Papa Lorenzo's house salad. Definitely save room for the homemade tiramisu or chocolate cake. I've had both and they are excellent! It can be a lot of food, but the leftover pastas are even better the... More

Spaghetti Bender was ony a few steps from our hotel. A family-run restaurant we chose over the more touristy Cappy's. Service was okay, any ambiance marred by a woman who did not stop talking the whole time we were there and a family who constantly kept their precocious son expounding on everything at the top of his voice.

The soup was the only way we could get our small children to eat vegies. Our son took several "first dates" here. A local tradition. There may be Italian restaurants with better food, but all and all, this is a great value.

Nice little Italian Restaurant on the Pacific Coast Highway, Looks like your Grannys house inside. Lovely home cooked food some of the most authentic i have experienced in the US. Obviously some genuine Italian influence as I sampled some Salice Salentino wine which was perfect with my Special seafood Pasta and rarely seen outside its native Puglia. The Soup and... More

This restaurant is next to the Best western hotel we stayed in for three nights in mid-May. It is a family -oriented place, with comfortable surroundings. The food is tasty, menu includes pasta dishes with choice of meatballs and sausage. Salads are prepared and served family-style. Nice place to get away from the noise of larger eateries. There is a... More
