This classic Italian neighborhood restaurant to me encapsulates life in Santa Monica. I love places like this where one can walk in and have a hearty meal or just sit at the bar and have a few snacks and drinks. Once you walk in, the garlicky, classic Italian scent as well as the staff's warm greetings will make you stay.

A friend and I stopped by after an event where we did not get to eat too much. We enjoyed some Italian inspired cocktails at the bar along with a light and crunchy plate of calamari. The accompanying spicy marinara sauce packs one of the best flavors I've had with red sauce in town. We also shared the wood fired authentic Italian pizzas. In this case, we enjoyed the prosciutto y funghi (mushroom) pizza, which also was prepared in classic Italian style.

Overall, I would enjoy going back and trying more items from this neighborhood gem.
