Very popular pasta restaurant....i arrived at 5.30pm and it was already nearly full. Straight forward old school Italian (if you ignore - as you should- the Thai or Mexican aberrations). I had the special (see photo), short rib beef ravioli....very tasty, but HUGE!

Not big place, but feels like eat in Mom's kitchen,delicious and friendly service. Recommend: Garlic Shrimp with black/white pasta and create your own pasta. Sauces and pastas are good.

The service is great, and the food is excellent. Nothing fancy about the place, but it is a very warm and inviting atmosphere.

We found this place from Trip Advisor and decided to try it. It doesn't look like anything special from the street so at first we were reluctant. We saw that it was packed inside which is always a good sign so we went it. Unfortunately...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
