The pasta dishes are incredibly generous and the homemade vegetable soup was quite good. Long Beach near the convention center is an odd locale and this was a bright spot. Not much ambience, although the views of the harbour and sunset were pretty nice. Nice staff, quick service, good food.

A sub shop and Italian restaurant. Let Mario the chef tantalize your taste but with his garlic jalapeño meatballs...just outstanding!!! I've tried lots of the food over the years and it always fits the bill. Good home cookin' in a place that is frequented by the Long Beach Police, so it's a bonus you'll can also feel safe when dining... More

This is really an Italian / southern Mediterenean kitchen with reasonably priced, hearty fare. Dependable, not exceptional.

This favorite neighborhood spot is sporting a new paint job and looking spiffy! The food is as good as ever - Pastrami sandwich on swirled rye bread for $7.99 - how can you beat that! Stella is $4.99 too! Outdoor seating shaded by bright red umbrellas is the perfect spot to see friends and lots of hunky cops and firefighters... More
