First of all somehow Trip Advisor has the city listed as Thousand Oaks, following Pacific Palisades. It's not in Thousand Oaks!
On with the review.
We had reservations and were quickly seated, we had a friendly attentive waiter, but it seems like all the waiters assist all around, or there are back waiters and bussers galore. We were well taken care of. Everyone was friendly. I get the impression its a family restaurant. There were kids laughing and playing in the courtyard which added a nice touch to the night. It felt like Italy. We were dressed for a celebration, the table next to us was right off the beach and they were treated just as well. Very nice wine selection, had 3 appetizers, with our favorite being the grilled calamari. 4 entrees and each of us was really happy with our choices. The lamb was delicious, the Oso Bucco... you could cut it with a fork. The other 2 had pasta dishes which they were swooning over. All the sauces were flavorful and rich. We shared a tiramisu for dessert, well, the birthday girl shared it with us and it was one of the best tiramisu's I've ever had. The night ended with a small plate of biscotti and small glasses of a sweet white wine. Lovely, absolutely lovely. I will most definitely return!
