Not a fancy place but great neighbourhood charm. Two teenage granddaughters loved the raviolis! The pizza with a gluten free crust was excellent. The service was very friendly and efficient.

This really is a very nice little place off the beaten path in Burbank. Across from the big studios of Warner Bros. Indoor and outdoor seating. Offstreet parking. Pastas are nicely done. Good wine list. Good prices too.

This is a small local restaurant but it had one of the best lasagnas I have ever had. Great wine list and very friendly staff. It is small but easy to find right off Olive and definitely worthwhile. We will definitely be back.
