On principle, I would not normally give a 5 rating to any restaurants in a shopping mall, but this place tempted me: superb service (by Vincenzo), ample portions, varied menu, and a non-mall atmosphere. But it was noisy, a bit overpriced, and just too rough around the edges to qualify as "fine dining." Yet my seafood linguine was excellent, my wife's soup and salad were very good, and the alert service was impeccable. It felt genuinely Italian, like a scene from an Elena Ferrante novel. We now have family nearby, so there's a good chance we'll return.

Real Italian food in Calabasas. Service up to scratch of New York which is a rare event in Los Angeles area. Decent wine list. Good cocktails. Daily specials always something unique. One of our favorite restaurants. Worth driving to.

Overall an upscale suburban Italian restaurant with outside seating and fire pit. Good for a casual business dinner or a semi romantic couples night out. We have dined here many times and the food service and the crowd have always been outstanding.

A lot of the supposed 'upscale' places disappoint. This one doesn't. We were a party of four. Each of us has something different and everyone raved about what they got. It was crowded but they honored our reservations and seated us immediately. Our waiter was prompt and he was very familiar with both the menu and the appropriate wine from their wide selection.

The best service I think I've ever had in a restaurant. Our Italian waiter with The Godfather accent (really he's right out of the movie) was outstanding. Very attentive without being bothersome. The restaurant was very busy and as we left he made the effort to quickly walk to the front of the restaurant to thank us. I would go back to the restaurant just for him! The food was good. The salads were fresh and the radicchio was the best I've tasted. The bread should be more authentic (think real Roman bread without salt) and the branzino was lovely. So overall I enjoyed the experience.
