I get the feeling we just came here on a bad day.  The hostess wasn’t very friendly and acted like we were crazy for not having a reservation.  The inside of the restaurant was empty and the hostess informed us the air was broken.  It was humid and miserable pretty much the entire time we were there. We waited for a while before our server came to the table.  We saw our server just chillin’ behind the bar for a long time, so not sure why he didn’t approach us sooner.  I’m pretty sure he was high and he definitely seemed like he did not want to be working.  That being said, the restaurant still has potential.  I liked the setup of the place as well as the decor.  The food presented beautifully and tasted delicious.  I definitely wasn’t to return to give this place a second chance.

Service isn’t the greatest here, but the food is decent and they do let you make modifications and substitutions to your order which is always appreciated (extra bacon to your pizza order, anyone?).The pizza and pasta portions don’t look very big, but whatever they are doing really fills you up.

Booth and table options, as well as outside patio and interior restaurant seating. Either place you sit has kind of a fun, typical Downtown Culver City vibe. I haven’t tried it myself but I heard they have a great happy hour which goes until 7 pm, which is much more convenient than happy hours that end at 6 pm.

Every time I come here, I have to get the burrata and pistachio pizza. There's a hefty helping of fennel in there as well, but the pistachio helps balance out the fennel's slightly bitter taste, and the result is a sweet and savory pie that disappears on our table in minutes. Also: the Brussels sprouts are bomb. I love coming here for happy hour when we can score discounted wine, but I'd come any time of day for a glass and some fantastic dough. (Then I'd probably head next door to Sambar for a great cocktail...)
