One of the best I've been too. The food was superb. Atmosphere a little loud. Service was ok. The meatballs and pasta were perfect. Will definitely be returning !

Our taxi got us to restaurant 1/2 hour early. We asked if we could come inside and sit until it opened. We are in our 80's. A very rude man came out and was so unpleasant. He said "you wouldn't ask to do that in a grocery store would you?" He made a couple more rude remarks and went back... More

This is by far the best Italian food I've had in a long time. The meatball app is a must, but everything on the menu is delicious. Make reservations as inside is tight and this place will continue to be in high demand. We will definitely return!

A spin off from the famous Cafe Martorano. This place is great but falls a little short compared to the original joint. Mostly everything on the menu is tasty and the service is very good. You must try this Italian restaurant when in Hollywood....

The service, food, and wine was fantastic. We ordered an appetizer special of 2 styles of rock shrimp and an amazing Cognac rigatoni dish with a side of meatballs..... Heaven! The server was kind, knowledgeable, and prompt. Excellent wine list with very reasonable by the bottle pricing. Highly recommend!

I heard so much about their meatballs I had to try them. I will say they were good. That's the only good. The bad. Super expensive. $21 for a meatball and salad?!? Come one. It's outside the Hard Rock Casino so it gets busy on the weekends. They do make a good pizza with arugula, but you guessed it. Expensive.

Couldn't be more impressed with the team service & attitude. My husband and I went two nights in a row and the food and service was amazing! I wish I would have taken more pictures! Weekends after 10pm the inside restaurant turns into a night club. We didn't do the night club... But I'm sure it was fun. There is... More

We had company in town and wanted to take them to the Hard Rock Casino. Our guests wanted Italian food and we knew this was the place to go. We started off with a few crafted cocktails. I enjoyed my blueberry concoction as did the other guest. For appetizers we ordered the garlic bread (a tad too much garlic for... More

Upon arrival, you really don't feel welcome. We sat and after 10 minutes finally placed our drink order and food ( for an Italian restaurant the menus is really limited), with in minutes of placing the order the water came back and told us the pizza oven wasn't working, honestly this was the most appetising thing on the menu. Within... More
