The Topolino salad is AMAZING!.
The service must not be the best, but the food is GREAT!! You must try their Topolino Salad...it is delicious. I also love the "pink sauce" they use on several of their pastas...overall...I highly recommend this joint.
In-the-know Eastsiders flock to this no-frills Italian joint for patio seating, reasonably-priced pasta dishes and one of the best kept breakfast secrets in Los Feliz..
While the atmosphere may not always be the main draw, on particularly fine SoCal days, this Eastside patio is a good place to dine. The tiny dining room inside just can't compete. Most of the fresh, simply prepared pasta dishes come in under the ten dollar mark and many are served with "Mamma Mia Sauce," a creamy pink concoction made with marinara and alfredo sauce. Lunch options include sandwiches and salads, but breakfast is a much bigger draw. In addition to standards like omelettes and French toast, there are creative entrees like the popular Red Eye--a bowl of linguine with spinach, tomato, mushrooms, bacon and cheese topped with two eggs over easy. A Tuscan frittata, a croissant egg sandwich and scrambled eggs with sautéed veggies on an Italian roll topped with Mamma Mia sauce round out the offerings. Beverages of choice include cappuccinos and lemonade served with fresh sliced strawberries.
Mama Mia! Here I go again!.
Great salads, great sandwiches, great pasta and best of all easy on the wallet. The little rolls they bring out to you with the oil and vinegar are just divine! Believe me, you won't stop eating them! My only complaint is the service. The waiters were running (and I do mean RUNNING) around the restaurant, dashing here and there, knocking things over, dropping silverware. The fellow even took my water cup away without asking me!! I would suggest you go before or after the lunch rush.
The decor would lead you to beleive that your meal was bound to be pricey. Wrong! The portions are large and the cost is extremely reasonable. Did I mention how delicious the food is?
