  • Its hard to find good Italian food, but look no farther. Mama is in the back, and her boys in the front. You cant go wrong with anything on the menu. - Tracy
  • The gluten-free pasta comes in one variety: a handmade penne. It works well with the carbonara, bolognese and lamb rigatoni. If you can handle gluten, get the legendary tiramisu for dessert.
  • Enjoy a proper Negroni. Or two.
  • One Word: NEGRONI.Just do it.
  • I've lived In NY and Chicago... You will not find better Italian. A plus, the crew is super friendly and amazing. A must!
  • Delicious. Russ' corn pasta was fantastic.
  • aiyuh so delicious try anything. so yums
  • Start off with the buratta plate and an elderflower gimlet--fresh goodness. The gnocchi or boar in chocolate sauce pasta is fab too.
  • Excellent! Start with a prosecco and the burrata then the delicious fusilli cecci. They also have really good cocktails
  • Pizza, pasta and more. High quality Italian !
  • Delicieux!
  • Squash ravioli and short rib ravioli x tiramisu
  • Sit at the bar! And then have a sip of something cool. And delicious.
  • Try the Grilled Octopus
  • Pappardelle fum is handmade inch-and-a-half-wide noodles in a tomato cream sauce enriched with smoked mozzarella and bacon. It's really filling, but worth every calorie.
  • I came to this place to see if the gnoquis were what people claim. The only potato gnoquis in LA for what I know. Well done. Place and food reminded me of Argentina a lot! Great ambiance
  • First time seeing pasta with bolognese made creamy which makes it super heavy to eat, also rib ravioli was good but average
  • Pasta carbonara is excellent, tastes like in Italy. The whole atmosphere is awesome
  • Great date night spot.
  • The Nero spaghetti was great (seafood pasta). The drinks were also excellent. Love the ambience and lighting too. Highly recommended.
