"Never a dull, quiet moment at this lively establishment! We LOVE coming here with our big family and love that everyone's just as loud as we are. The foot and service are exceptional every time and our family & friends have a ball. Great for birthdays, baby showers, romantic dinner, family night out or a celebration of anything. Just FUN!
We order an array of dishes that we share. We were disappointed though that the braised beef was removed from the menu. :("

"Excellent Service, Pastas are all great, any type you order, portions are very large so their small can serve 2 people , and their large portion is enough for 4 people, so come hungry ; Parking in area is metered- sometimes hard to find a spot; can get busy because food is so good ; drinks/ wines also very good; desserts are great ; Old Italian restaurant atmosphere; reservations are preferred but not required- lunch time walk ins are fine- but dinner you should use open table for reservations. Especially great are their linguini, spaghetti, or fettuccini pastas. Very picturesque inside- old Italy photos & memorabilia; seating is tables or booths and noise level very good- quiet to normal; price is $$ to $$$"

"Our party arrived on time but we were not shown to our table until a half hour past our reservation time. We ordered an appetizer and it arrived at the same time as the main course. The bread was even worse. That wasn't placed on our table until we were almost done eating. Luckily the food tasted great!"

"When I first entered the restaurant and as we walked through the kitchen to our table toward the back of the restaurant, I immediately noticed an off smell, like wet, moldy carpet. This bad smell pretty much ruined my appetite before we even sat down. The restaurant was pretty loud, large groups celebrating birthdays, etc. The food was nothing special in my opinion. We ordered the fried mozzarella, which was decent. The bread with alfredo sauce and cheese was very bland and had a sour taste. The unseasoned chicken breast in the spicy chicken pasta tasted almost like it was day old; I took one bite and was turned off by the almost gamey flayor. The stuffed shells were ok. We also had a salad with apples and nuts, which I didn't really care for since the nuts were covered in some strong spices. Sorry, but will not be returning here. There are just too many great food options in Pasadena and surrounding areas to not have a great meal."

"A pretty neat restaurant but they only offer family-size items (for 2 and 4) on the menu."

"We booked this restaurant for New Years Eve since we were seeing a movie close by and were happy to see they didn't boost their prices, and we could get an ideal time of 9:45 pm which was about a half hour after our movie ended. We ordered an antipasto salad and pancetta stuffed chicken plus baked rigatoni. It was all delicious and had lots of food to take home between the two couples."
