Don't use Entertainment Book Coupons here !!!.
We were greeted in a very nice way, we picked our own table. Had some good appetizers, not great. Struck up a nice conversation with the owner. Had some good wine and good dinner, Not Great but good. Service was really good.
Time to pay, and we gave him our Entertainment Book
discount card and it is like I had spit on his mothers face.
The owner gave us the look of SATAN. All the friendly comments disappeared. He actually did not even talk with us after that. Then when the bill came back he actually stiffed us on the discount !!!!!
Note to owner if you have a problem with people presenting discount and coupons then DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THE ENTERTAINMENT BOOK !!!!!
I can't imagine anyone forcing you to do so.
We (my wife and I) have used the entertainment book for a loooong time. It is a fun thing to just randomly pick a restaurant go and see what they have to offer, taking a chance on it with the coupon as a back up. We usually spend $150-200 on a dinner and because of this guy/owner had a problem with a $20 discount he will now forever miss out on our business. He killed the fun and when people ask me about this restaurant this is what I will bring up, this is what I will remember.
Their menu is a complete rip-off from a restaurant we visit a lot...without coupons...Da Pasquale Trattoria Italiana in Beverly Hills on little Santa Monica. So if you like the food and not a bunch of fake people...believe it or not I recommend going to Beverly Hills instead.
We live up in the hills and had actually never seen this restaurant and thanks to Entertainment Book we found it...I will just as fast forget it and just go to Vibrato next door when I'm hungry and around Beverly Glen.
So should you......
One of LA's only neapolitan/california fusion restaurants. This restaurant serves real neapolitan home made dishes which vary with the season The owner is always there to make sure you are enjoying yourself. Make sure you ask for the specials. They are numerous and usually special. Never had a bad time there. It's as if you are going to an italian friend's home for some home cooking.
I think not!. Avoid like the plague! First they kept us waiting outside in the cold a half an hour - then we waited for the salad an hour - then they ran out of beer ( Sat night! ) - then we waited another half an hour for the main course. When the bill came and the owner saw that we had gift certificates to cover part of the cost, he actually screamed out loud and called my husband an A-holeand then told us to get the F out of his restaurant...!!! So, you tell me, is this a nice evening ? AND the food was ridiculous on top of it! Caesar salad for $10 on a 4 inch plate - burrata mozzarella and anchovies that you need a microscope to find for $12....etc. There you go
Secluded upscale strip mall Tuscan neighborhood favorite forms a comfortable meeting place for Bel Air and Valley dwellers..
Cherry oak chairs scratch against tilefloors as families and friends' laughter fill this cozy Italian eatery's cream walls, while couples cuddle together, excited about a night out. Although the menu features Italian staples like linguine alla bolognese and piccata di pollo, the mosaic half-open kitchen have produced more adventuresome specials such as mussels in squid ink and grilled calamari. A wine list heavy on Italian and Coastal Californian favorites spills from the wine cellar onto the bar.
