I and 5 friends ate at this restaurant recently and I was very disappointed. First my grilled samon was less than 1/2 an inch think and not flavorful so I sent it back for a hamburger that wasn't any better. When the bill came I was told

Situated in the up-and-coming Laurel district, Laurellino's is what I can only hope will be the first of many slightly upscale choices to enter the Laurel.

On Macarthur close to a Giant Burger, Laurellino's sets itself apart from the rest of the neighborhood with a cozy outdoor seating area, linen napkins, soft music inside, and attentive servers.

The Pros:
Extensive/reasonably priced wine list. The menu had lots of delicious-looking selections. Appetizers started around $6, and entrees were $9-$19. The eggplant Parmesan was amazing and flavorful, and the crab artichoke dip appetizer was wonderfully full of garlic. The spinach fettuccine with shrimp in a dill cream sauce was very good, but could have used a little more flavor. The tirimisu is housemade and delicious. The plates were HUGE, and although the place was packed, we were seated right away. Lunch special sandwiches are all under $9, or you can get a half order of pasta and soup or salad at lunchtime for $8.50.

The Cons:
Although the servers were attentive (actually a little too attentive - asking if we wanted more water every 5 minutes or so), the food took a long time to come out. From start to finish, our meal took close to 2 hours. Everyone seemed to be trying really hard, but Laurellino's wants to be a little fancier than it is. The atmosphere needs a little work, and somehow feels a bit like a cafeteria.

All in all, Laurellino's is the only somewhat fancy/possibly romantic place that is walkable from my Fruitvale home, and I'm glad it exists. I look forward to their getting the kinks out of their timing and service, and will definitely be returning.
