Experience didn't start off too well, wasting 20 mins driving around the block to find parking because the dead end street the restaurant is on had very limited parking (enough for 6 cars). We eventually found parking, 2 blocks down the road. Walked into what felt like a freezer, and got seated straight away, but was shivering due to the... More

Good Italian food and a great wine list. Service is friendly and efficient. The pizza is excellent and the rest of the menu is pretty good too.

We came in hoping their food would live up to our high Italian food standards and it did not disappoint! They have a vast beer selection and the house wine is totally suitable. Our whole family enjoyed the calamari. We had the Frutti Del Mar over gnocchi, a cheese pizza, Calzone and the lasagna with bolognese sauce. All 5 of... More

We stumbled on this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. I had the pasta primavera and it was excellent.

Came to eat here before a show taping. Wasn't too crowded but enough people to know that it was an OK place to eat. All the dishes for our table were great even if they did take a little while to come out. If you have to be at the studios for any reason i would consider this place first.

I took my boyfriend here for our date night, based on their stellar reviews, and I have got to say: even though my expectations were high, we were blown out of the water by this place! We sat at the bar and had pre-dinner drinks while talking to the bartenders. They were both funny and charismatic and extremely helpful when... More

The food was very tastefull, I had Penne Arrabiata and my wife a pizza. I minus for the house wine: $10 is quite expensive for a regular Merlot.

After riding past this place for years, we finally went to dinner there. Twice! It's a great little spot across the street from Warner Bros. Studios. Casual dining, a little loud and tight fitting tables but the atmosphere lends itself to that so it's was expected. Great service and good food. Not a lot of Italian options in Burbank so... More

Stopped here for dinner with the family after we'd been to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour. Just round the corner, doesn't look much from the outside but food was great. Wife and I had pasta, kids shared a huge pizza. Just what we needed and would definitely recommend. Service was excellent well. We got there for early dinner around 5:30pm... More

Cozy Located very close to Warner bros, Got very good Italian food. Prompt and courteous staff. Pizza margarita is a must try. This place has got good vegetarian options and a good list of wines. If you are planning to go in a group try to make a reservation as this place gets pretty crowded.
