The food is very good (wonderful bread), and the service friendly in this small, local restaurant. They have a build-it-yourself option on pasta. And their Checca sauce is delicious. Vegetarian friendly.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
