From 411 West’s website, one might expect a fine dining experience- with an attractive setting, attentive service and delicious Italian food “with a California twist”. After a so-so meal two years ago, we thought we’d give it a another try. Sadly, we were disappointed again....More

A good choice for a great Italian taste. The place has a lovely patio and the whole restaurant gets packed. Food is wine, service is great and wine selections add even more value. A good casual place to check out!
