This is my third outstanding time here. My favourite waiter is Mike (with long hair). Ask for him. He’s truly outstanding. It’s the difference between being served and being waited on like you’re the only person in the restaurant. He is very attentive with a...More

I have never ordered any dish that was not perfection. Too popular. Great service, great food. Wish it was a quiet spot, but worth the crowds.

This was the first place to put old town on the map. 25 years later it is still going. Good food. Better than the becoming.

One of the place to be in Pasadena. The restaurant is a bit pricy. We ordered the shrimp pasta, they were delicious and very well served. The service was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was full but for once, it was not too noisy...More
