Friends took us for the first time while we were visiting. Great food, surprisingly attractive interior (compared with the street view), and very attentive service. One of the old school types of restaurants where the waiters take the orders and serve them to the right...More

My family came here for dinner after seeing a musical matinee at Segerstrom Hall, so we were probably the first patrons in the restaurant. Of course we were seated immediately, and brought ice water and bread while we perused the menu. We ordered the calamari,...More

We are visiting from Portugal, visiting with local friends, who thought this place was both convenient and worthy. We arrived early, as the place was gearing up and were greeted by the waiter, who was very helpful. The food was an Americanised type of Italian,...More

We were looking for a quiet, festive, and most of all relaxing restaurant for a dinner the Saturday before Christmas for us and several of our "foodie" friends (totaling 15 people). Truthfully, this wasn't my first choice as we had only eaten at Onotria once...More
