No doubt the best Italian restaurant in Azusa! Went there with a couple friends, and enjoyed the food and the service. The prices are not cheap, but reasonable, and you get what you pay for!

This wonderful hidden gem of a caf gave us that rare sort of pleasant dining experience that one continues to rave about well after leaving the restaurant. For us, the food was reminiscent of the delicious dishes my wife and I remember sampling in Boston??s Italian North End during our graduate school days.

We started by sampling the fresh artisan bread, which was served warm and accompanied by extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. It was a hint of the goodness that was to come our way. Our three main dishes, pizza Bianca, linguine and shrimp, and meatballs and spaghetti, were simply flawless. It was as though the kitchen was full of Italian grandmothers putting their best recipes to bear. We almost never order dessert, but after the dinner we were eager to find out it they could close as good as they started. The cannoli tasted as authentic as any we had ever tasted at Mike??s Pastry??s in Boston??s Italian North End (Sorry, Mike, but its true.) Wow!

The ambience is warm and inviting. My wife was able to enjoy a fine glass of wine and I was able to find a good imported beer on tap. The greatest feat, however, was the low prices. We??ve eaten at places similar to this in nearby Pasadena, but at a much higher cost and with the added challenge of fighting the crowds. The staff was friendly to our two young children.

Azusa is changing and this hidden gem of an Italian caf is part of the reason. Easily accessible from the 210 Freeway.
