Very good restaurant, if you stay away from the pizza. Don't order the pizza, bland and tasteless. The Calamari is very good, and my friend's really likes their fish dishes. The seafood pasta and the bolognese are both excellent. I've had the bolognese numerous times, it's so good.

I always get the Bianchi and Neri. For some reason it wasn't as good. I like a perfect al dente but today's pasta was a little bit under cooked. Taste was still good although I couldn't eat it all because of the pasta texture.

Yum. Fancy-pants pizza for a bit of $$. Four of us headed here on a Tuesday night and by the time we finished place was packed and people waiting to eat. Juke box GREAT! A little too dark but service fantastic. Since deep dish takes awhile to cook, we ordered a thin-crust to hold us over. They were great about making a vegan pizza (a ... read more

We used to go to Avanti on Lake Ave. ever since they opened. Their wood fired pizzas were amazing, and the salads delicious. Years went by and we were sad to see the place closed down. On an internet site a discussion started about places we miss in Pasadena. I posted about Avanti only to be told they moved. Wow! Went there last week ... read more

My friend and I came here a couple of months ago when it was pouring outside and still had to wait an hour to get a table, but fortunately were able to sit in the waiting area and enjoy a beer in the meantime.
