I had heard that this lovely little restaurant can get very busy, but it was pretty mellow on a late January Sunday evening. Very attentive service. The dinner was very good but a mixed bag. My spouse and I really enjoyed our salads and the delicious Il Farro bread. My entree was outstanding- dinner special of house made pasta with... More

Our family had dinner while visiting Newport Beach. I ordered Seafood ravioli which was delicious. Others ordered pizza which they claimed was very good, the pasta with Gorgonzola and mushroom sauce was excellent. The potato gnocchi with pumpkin flavored sauce was delicious. The eggplant appetizer was just so-so. Friendly staff and efficient service. I would return again without hesitation.

Experienced a great Italian meal here tonight. However a warning to guests to check your bill. We had an extra item added to ours. Maybe a human error but still just to keep you on your toes. Great food and service. Enjoy Robbyna from Sweden

My friend and I stopped in for a light lunch while visiting Newport Beach. They made me a delicious Italian soda and we had some delicious appetizers. Great service, lovely outdoor seating, and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Would eat here again.

The ravioli are made in house every morning. The ravioli pasta was so thin and delicate but yet were generously filled. There was just the right amount of asparagus and... More
