A great place in Santa Monica. Good place for lunch. Lasagna was great. Other time I had stuffed tortellini. First you select, then sauce and then meat.

Feels like neighbourhood, family style restaurant. Friendly staff. Casual atmosphere. Delicious food. We ordered mostly pastas among the 5 of us family members. Not fancy, but delicious. Good service. We’ll be back.

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
