    The Risotto with Lobster was fantastic.The Black Label Burger was great as well as the crispy yet thick bacon and caramelized Maui onions were simply wonderful.

    Mediocre. I guess The residents of Pasadena must be happy to have it since options are limited but, I'm sorry, it's below mediocre.

    Pasta, veal, and all your Italian favorites done well. Great people watching from their patio. Excellent pastry chef.

    Their escargot was surprisingly good. For some reason their salmon pasta's portion got smaller, the sauce was less than before, and there were less smoke salmon on top.

    Service is really slow.

    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.

  • Vanessa B.

    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.

    Lara Scheel · March 23, 2013
  • Chris I.

    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

    Chris Ip · March 21, 2013
  • Michel R.

    Great breakfast, try the oatmeal...

    Michel Rodrigue · March 8, 2013

    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

    Good food!

    Great place! The atmosphere is 'hip casual', the italian bakery is outstanding. The chicken Lasagna is the best. Reservations are strongly recommended.

    Don't come here for food. Over cooked seafood, mediocre pasta, forced smile waiters. Just go to Louise's across the street.
