I ordered the Miata with meat and pasta. It was extremely tasty, except the steak was tough. The pasta meals didn't include soup or salad so it was a bit pricey.

You might want to stick with the pasta at this place. I had a mushroom gnocchi special, which was very good. My wife tried the pizza, which was nothing special. They have a great list of specialty drinks, but the beer list is pretty weak.

I love all the food here, but the chicken parm. is great! However the carpaccio appetizer, and Panacotta desert are my top 2 choices!

I had heard that this lovely little restaurant can get very busy, but it was pretty mellow on a late January Sunday evening. Very attentive service. The dinner was very good but a mixed bag. My spouse and I really enjoyed our salads and the delicious Il Farro bread. My entree was outstanding- dinner special of house made pasta with... More

Our family had dinner while visiting Newport Beach. I ordered Seafood ravioli which was delicious. Others ordered pizza which they claimed was very good, the pasta with Gorgonzola and mushroom sauce was excellent. The potato gnocchi with pumpkin flavored sauce was delicious. The eggplant appetizer was just so-so. Friendly staff and efficient service. I would return again without hesitation.

Experienced a great Italian meal here tonight. However a warning to guests to check your bill. We had an extra item added to ours. Maybe a human error but still just to keep you on your toes. Great food and service. Enjoy Robbyna from Sweden

My friend and I stopped in for a light lunch while visiting Newport Beach. They made me a delicious Italian soda and we had some delicious appetizers. Great service, lovely outdoor seating, and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Would eat here again.
