great stunning italian food, terrible service, great place, friendly waiters, great location, good italian restaurants, authentic fresh italian
keep walking down the promenade. Pretty place. Nice surfer dude waiter.The appetizers not well described. The beet spaghetti was julienne beets. The mozzarella cheese balls came colld then came back overdone. Small portions . The seafood pasta had bay scallops at diver scallop prices..Go eslewhere.
Shaved head waiter was RUDE and unfriendly, Bad attitude!!!. Oops, going to Lago Restaurants was one of the mistakes. I usually don't write reviews, unless I am really disappointed. The reviews I saw were good, but the visit was total disappointment. The food was ok but nothing special!!! The service was shocking!!!!!! He act like a king or queen. What's wrong shaved head waiter? Never ever going back again!!!!
I' ve been impressed!!! A real deal! Authentic flavors from northern Italy. I am from Italy, and I can say that the food here is amazingly good. Even better than few restaurants in Italy. Excellent promotions too. I have been also on a thurday night and had a $20 pitcher of fresh organic margarita and $8 pizza. It was awesome! I will go back for a wednesday night.....50%off selected bottles of wine. They have a fantastic wine list too!!!
Service and atmosphere was great too.
Oh my God best Italian food in L.A.!. Wow! I am a major food snob and I have eaten in top restaurats all around the world. What a shock when our casual quick bite on the promenade turned out to be the most delicous, authentic stunning Italian food we have had in L.A. The quality of food far surpssed Capo or Vincente as far as Italian food goes (which we love as well). I'm not sure if there is a new chef, but we don't remember it being anything special severa years ago. Then, we went back again and the salt encrusted chilean sea bass and langoustino appetizer were to die for! the wine list is good as well. Hope you have as great of a time as we did and that this chef gets some major recognition.
Unique Italian in the heart of Santa Monica. This place serves great Italian food right on the Promenade. Inside has a pretty intimate romantic feel, and for as good as it is and the location, there's hardly ever too much of a wait. It's hard to go wrong here, but they do a great job with fish, and the lobster ravioli is my personal favorite. If you sit outside, there is great people watching on the promenade, and it's a little livelier. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.
Great restaurant right on Third Street Promenade. The location of this restaurant is great, as it is right on the Third Street Promenade, so you can walk on the Promenade before or after dinner. The atmospheric is nice and romantic, and the food is good. I have always found the service there to be fine. The waiters are usually quite helpful, and I have never noticed the service to be unusually slow.
Great food, great setting. This pleasant Italian restaurant right on the Promenade serves up authentic and slightly rustic looking pastas, pizzas and a variety of other traditional dishes from the country. I got the penne del cliente: a pasta with chicken, broccoli and mushrooms in an arrabbiata sauce that had just the right degree of heat. The meat in the dish was moist, and it had a generous amount of veggies. My dad?s pizza was prepared traditionally Italian -- thin and very crispy. You can eat in dining room and see the chefs cook in the kitchen or on the patio and people watch.
Good Restaurant. We eat a lot of Italian food so we're picky when it comes to restaurants. This place rates pretty highly for us. The service was prompt and attentive despite being there on an extremely busy Saturday night. The food was excellent, especially the Butternut Squash Risotto with Scallops. Outstanding! Only complaint was because the restaurant was so busy we ended up sitting on wooden folding chairs that were uncomfortable. Definitely make reservations if planning to go here.
Great food, very poor service. I just dined here with a friend yesterday Sunday 7/22. After walking by this restaurant several times and taking a peek at their menu we decided to give it a try. Your dining experience starts off with delicious warm bread and a very tasty trout spread with walnuts and garlic. My friend and I shared the eggplant appetizer which was really good. I had the spaghetti bolognese as my entree, which was absolutely delicious! The quality of the food is really great, however, the service is quite dissapointing. The staff is EXTREMELY slow and no where to be found. If you are willing to take your time and enjoy a long meal then I would recommend this restaurant.
Bad waiter. I do thing that it takes little to make people dinner happy, especially when the food is good. But unfortunatelly that sould alway be something wrong, like our server. I'am sorry, but iwould never comeback.
