mediocre food, friendly staff, great little place, slow service, delicious foccacia bread, warm cozy atmosphere, great coffee
Incredible chopped chicken salad. It's family run which means you are always given that personal touch. They now have a great assortment of homemade dessert. My personal favorite is their carrot cake. I've been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and have never been disappointed.
amazing food.... The food here is amazing! The bread is so delicious - hot, crispy, and fluffy. It was very addicting. They also shaped the butter into tiny balls, that melted into the bread. Next up was the tortellini with pink sauce. That sauce is so good that we started dipping the bread in it. And there was plenty of bread for us to consume after finishing the our meal.
I have been dining here since they first opened. Actually, I am one of the regulars there that works in The French Quarter. Some of us lovingly call it The Company Cafeteria, but they serve you and John and Kate want happy customers. They are wiling to let you make a dish on your own. I asked for Tuna at lunch and it's not on the menu but you can get it. Also I made an Eggplant dish using spinach instead of pasta so it's low calorie and they are happy to serve it.
Some of my favorites are any of the fish dishes, The Eggplant Parmasean on a bed of spinnach, the Lasagne and the Pasta Scramble. The coffee is great too and the apple crumble is so good tht I have been known to order enough to bring dessert for a party.
Example: great place for good bread.
This is a Fantastic Restaurant to Eat in or have them Deliver. John and Kate, the Owners are Fantastic.
The Chef is amazing!
The attention to detail is wonderful!
This is a Must Dine At Restaurant!
Try the Chicken Sesame and Lasagna, Yum Yum!!
Quaint Valley Italian Joint. This quaint kitchen offers delicious Italian meals and a warm, cozy atmosphere for valley locals and frequenters. The Foccacia bread might be my favorite part about this place- it's delicious, its doughy and its unlimited! But of course, there is a whole menu of fantastic dishes. Their salads pack a lot of flavor with their plethora of tasty ingredients and they are my favorite items on the menu!
service slow slow slow. Nice cute place but you can measure service using a sun dial...the food on my visit was mediocre at best. The pizza was good. We also had chicken piccata and I think the chef wanted to make chicken marsala as it looked and tasted like marsala but with a lemon kicker. The chicken was over done and the food came out luke warm at best. I might give them another chance as chicken may not be the thing to order there. Just make sure you don?t mind slow slow slow service with all the food not coming out at the same time..
Great little place!. This is the one of the most inviting restaurants I have been to in woodland hills since I moved to the area a year ago. The staff was warm and friendly, making it a point to remember my name (and it is not an easy one to remember!).We were welcomed by the owner with a smile. Regulars to the place ordered without even looking at the menu. It was bustling for lunch and the quaint little patio is a huge plus! The food was very nice. My friend and I both has pasta dishes and they were both very enjoyable. The big test for me with pasta dishes is if they have a layer of oil at the bottom of the plate when you are done. No layer here! I was very impressed with this restaurant and plan to go back on a regular basis.
Great place. Casual/comfortable setting. Warm lighting, family appropriate environment. Great food, good service. Good for small and medium sized groups. Recommended for people of all ages. Park at Hodes Parking, parking guy very friendly and helpful.
Great Lunch Date place. It is a very cute little Italian cafe type place. The food is good and afordable and it is a great place to meet for a lunch date or to eat lunch with friends. There is indoor seating and they also have outdoor seating for small groups.
Great place for lunch!. If you want a quick place for lunch that has incredible food than go to Nicolas. It is a cute little place in the valley. My wife actually had her bridal shower there and it was very nice.
