Come see Brian at the bar ,)
Go see Brian. Best Bartender around and a really great dude!!!
Ask for brian w. at the bar!
Brian makes the best Cucumber Martini and Henry makes a good Espresso Martini
The chicken lasagna is to die for!
This place is awesome. Happy Hour all night on Mondays, and club nights Thursday-Satruday
Brian is the best bartender in old town
Always enjoy a great meal and conversation at the bar. Christina, Henry, Mark and Brian are fantastic bartenders.
OMGOMGOMG!!! Pescatore is my fav thing in life. The one here is A+++ served with spinach linguine and in a rich tomato broth over flowing with seafood. The best Pescatore I ever had, EVER!
Make sure to ask for the bread with olive oil/vinegar before your meal.
Not worth the wait or $$. Avoid.
Service is poor, waitresses are not attentive. Don't sit near the mirror - the floor is unstable and you feel everyone walking around. Bread is good though
Brian is THE greatest bartender, hands down!
the food is somewhat good but the waiter is very annoying. they have a fake smile and make you hurry up your order.
Some of the best bartenders in town. Christina, Henry and Mark will amaze and delight you with their creative libations.
food is almost always an "A-". service is a "C-". if you have a reservation for a group, make sure your whole party is on time/present or they won't seat you.
Got to try the Chocolate Soup dessert - it's a whole lot of awesome - thx Steve for that perfect description.
Night time is guaranteed scene to be scene. Expect the wait but the ambiance is pretty visceral. Breakfast or lunch is a great alternative. All in all, dining for an experience.
They havr very good baked goods also.
amazing service and grt food!!
Pretty waitstaff, terrible service. Don't expect questions answered, followthrough with requests, or even getting the bill in decent time.
Skip breakfast. Cold eggs and poor service. I have always made it a point to have dinner here when I'm in town but very sad on this trip.
Get a watermelon mojito. Save room for dessert with a double shot of espresso.
The bread and Mark the bartender...#MasterMixologist
Don't drink alcohol? Brian at the bar can make you flavorful virgin cocktails. Virgin mojito was delicious - complete with mint leaves - and not too sweet.
I've been coming here for years and I seem the same thing over and over again. The insalata with vinegarette and pasta bolongnese. Two classics and always perfect. And amazing creative desserts.
Do not eat at tables by back mirrored wall. Bugs! They know there is a problem and all they do is shrug shoulders and apologize. Ugh.
Great breakfast, try the oatmeal...
Piper Sonoma Mimosas are the best!!!!
Try the Pizza Margherita (via @Foodspotting)
Mark is the BEST bartender ever
Pasadena Breakfast Sandwich is a winner
Gluten free options! Woo hoo! The primavera was delicious
An excellent place all around or lunch, dinner, and late night. I always get the Pescatore (red sauce) and be careful to not eat too much of their great bread
Great place! The atmosphere is 'hip casual', the italian bakery is outstanding. The chicken Lasagna is the best. Reservations are strongly recommended.
Henry made our evening in Pasadena a hit!!! Thanks Henry!!!!
Henry's our favorite!!! Go see him!!!
Pizza and Ravioli Al Burro are AMAZING. Same with Caesar salad and fettuccine alfredo
If you're a girl, ask Brian (bartender) for a French 75!!! He makes the best in Los Angeles county!!!! Yuuuuuppp!!!
Henry at the bar. The right guy to be in charge! Awsome place
Restrooms are a mess
Try the Duck Confit Fettucini (via @Foodspotting)
it's all about the calamari for me at this place!!
Don't come here for food. Over cooked seafood, mediocre pasta, forced smile waiters. Just go to Louise's across the street.
Waited an exorbitant amount of time for milk for my bloody tea
The shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta is killer. Gotta try it!
Decent Italian cafe, usually for business people and dates. Delicious desserts and good service!!
