I accidentally found this relatively small, Uber-quaint Italian restaurant and had, without question, the very best meat Lasagna and dinner salad I've ever had. The Garlic Bread is to die for. And the candlelight and fresh flowers on each table were impressive. This restaurant is on Ventura Blvd in the Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles and warrants a visit... More

Went here for drinks and Karaoke, with my Sister, her partner and my 2 nieces. We had already eaten but food smelled great. This place sort of reminded me of a "wise guy" bar sort of Goodfellas style. Everyone was really friendly, som really good singers including my eldest neice Crown Vic, who belted out some Amy Whitehouse Drinks a... More

Family of 4 (kids 11 & 14) met with family of 3 (kid 12) for some catching up. Nice and campy. House made sausage was good; but pizza was soggy. Liked the camp atmosphere and walking distance to our hotel.

I can't review the atmosphere or service since we took it home to eat. I had pasta with marinara sauce and a salad. The salad was very good with fresh greens and a tasty Italian dressing. The pasta was good, not spectacular, but it made for a nice meal. My daughter had vermicelli with olive oil and garlic. I tasted... More

This is a very loud bat and restaurant. We sat outside as it is a bit quieter. The service was very slow. The calamari appetizer was overlooked. The fettuccini was not very good. I doubt the food was homemade. Tasted like something from a jar. Not impressed and would not return.

Stopped by for a late pizza after arriving in town. It was the only place that was open. The pizza (white with homemade sausage) was great. Sort of a deep dish style, great crust, super sausage - just a winner all around. The place is kind of tight and we ended up sitting at the bar - great service there... More

don't tip the pianist -- i gave him twenty bucks and he didn't even say thanks. this restaurant is a local tradition going way back, and the bar is a favorite hangout for locals. prices aren't bad for ventura blvd in woodland hills. try the veal, it is downright cheap here, half the price of Maggiano's or even less.

My husband and I came here for a fun night of dinner and karaoke. The karaoke was a blast, they had some really good singers. The food was subpar. I did not enjoy the dinner salad, or the garlic rolls. As a vegetarian, my food selection was very minimal because unlike most restaurants, they put chicken stalk in the marina... More
