Just so so dinning. Terrific atmosphere. Good for light fare and drinks. Parking difficult. Upscale and great wine list. Very friendly service

Had delightful cocktails (esp. those based on brown liquors) and decent but overpriced fare. The service was simply atrocious, snooty if not hostile, especially the "hostess" who would make idle chit-chat with waiters while ignoring guests when the restaurant was virtually empty. So you haven't missed much.

Resturant is closing 2-1. No more TN in Pasadena. If in Pas area this weekend, Enjoy dining Now. All inventory to be sold or given to clients of diner. Staff broken up to other dining venues. Chef & owner go seperate ways., Job loss for that area on Lake Ave. Best Salmon I ever had & great hanger steak

Trattoria Neapolis has a nice decor and ambiance for ladies who lunch. The menu is varied and the portions are good for those not wanting to overload on the calories. I especially like the half-half selections, e.g., half a salad w/ half a pasta, or half a sandwich + soup. The spaghetti bolognese is good, not outstanding but passable. However,... More

Four of us ate here for lunch. Service & ambiance are FIVE SPOONS, but the food is just average. We all had different entres. Mine was a great soup but a very mediocre pizza. Three spoons, but willing to grove it a second chance.

This is definitely a special Italian restaurant with a striking atmosphere. I used to walk past this place daily while going to work and was impressed by the tremendous amount of renovation the owners put into it. The food is good and so is the service. But it is the elaborate dark-wood interior decor that makes this place feel like... More

Loved the atmosphere, decor, and especially the food! The kitchen being in view of our table was very cool! Extremely cool wine collection upstairs. Ate here with a friend from high school who recommended it and so glad I did! He bought dinner, and I feel like I owe him a few dinners after the great experience there! Do yourself... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times now, the food is very good, I really like the pizza dough and the fresh mozzarella they're using it. I've tried a few pasta dishes as well and have been pleased with them as well. The cocktails are good, and the beer/wine selection is outstanding. Only thing that I regret is that... More

The food, the service, the atmosphere: all good. Loved the salmon and scallops, House red wine a good, solid pour. Loved that they have pasta alternatives on the menu for those of us counting carbs. Only odd thing is big TV screens at the bar...not really suited to a nice Italian meal...but fits if they want to be positioned as... More

Had a business lunch this week with three others and we were all duly impressed with the welcoming staff (one of the owners even came by and graciously chatted and offered suggestions), fantastic food and solid service. Seafood pasta (hand cut) was ordered by two of us and fantastic! Good feedback from tablemates on halibut filet and sandwich orders. No... More
