Service was excellent. Good location. Ok. I am done. It was late so we ordered soup and a pizza. Lentil soup was not bad. Lots of lentils. Very very salty! Really salty. Pizza...no flavor ($22). The crust was bland. Nothing to it at all. They did not rub it with oil or anything. Just a nicely shaped piece of cardboard... More

Went there to have lunch with my boyfriend after walking around in the Grove. I got the Carbonara pasta and it was delicious. Service was great as well. We sat on the terrasse, so good food with good view, it was all very nice! Super romantic as well! It is a bit more on the expensive side, but it is... More

Perfectly acceptable food. Waitstaff is overburdened and aloof at the same time. Probably jaded by the celebrities walking by. It's a good location, near the fountain at the Grove, but not a stellar dining experience. Good for people watching if you get a table with a view. Food average, not a special menu at all. It's better than before the... More

I mean if you're expecting amazing food, this might not be the place. but if you want a quick fix, and you're at the grove...come on in! my pizza was average, my wife's shrimp salad was great. prices are above average and service is pretty good. don't expect service with a smile, but then again... this is...

It was in the middle of the Grove mall. We were able to get a table by the fountain and enjoyed the music fountain show. Sipping beer with nice music was a true relaxed moment. Except the slow service, everything was good.

Went to the grove and farmers market following a recommendation from a friend. Very nice area to wander around with high end shops. Restaurant very welcoming offering typical Italian fare but more importantly offered a gluten free pasta option for my daughter. It would be good for them to look for a gluten free pizza base to offer as an... More

Food was good. Ambience nice as well. But they missed out on of our diners order and then took an eternity to serve it. Everybody is long finished and the course it still nowhere near being here. We also waited 6-7 minutes for simple come refills. Come to think of it there service was very patchy. Interested to see if... More

Typical ITALIAN food and hospitality! Delicious complimentary breadbasket. Had the Minestrone soup and Alfredo Penne...excellent!! Service very attentive and our waiter kept our glasses full with delicious ice cold water amid the heatwave!! Highly recommended - prices reasonable.
