VERY TASTY FOOD, NICE WINE 3/25/2009

I came here for lunch with my boyfriend during the week and it was really quiet. I had been there before, but a long time ago. I remembered that it was good though. I ordered eggplant parmesan by recommendation of a friend. She was right, it was absolutely delicious! Thinly sliced and lightly breaded with a flavorful sauce. I recommend this place. Yes, it's maybe a little pricey, but if you're looking for somewhere nice to relax and enjoy yourself, give this place a shot. I would say it's worth it! Pros: great food, nice wine list, interesting location Cons: seasoning on pasta was a little off to me more

At least there is covered parking 5/17/2008

Have dined here over the years and the quality has dropped significantly in the past year. Our last visit was very disappointing. My entree, the Lasagna, was salty, barely hot and had one corner that was inedible, cooked to a vulcanized state as if micro-waved. My wife's veal was tough and again not very hot, it also appeared to have been through the microwave to reheat. The service was deplorable, the waiter returned to our table and asked if we were ready to order some five minutes after having taken our order. The restaurant was less than 1/4 full at the time (6:30). He did apologize and then immediately returned with our entrees, the time between order and service being less than ten minutes, leading us to believe that the meals had been pre prepped and just reheated. The after dinner Cappuccino tasted as if made with stale coffee and skim milk and their signature dessert, the sponge with pistachios had that three day old uncovered refrigerator taste. Not a $60 meal! NOT RECOMMENDED! Go to Ruby's next door, feed a family of five for the same price. Pros: At least covered parking is available Cons: Poor quality food and service more

Why isn't zero stars available? One is too good for this place. 9/20/2007

This is the worst restaurant I have been to... EVER! The bread was store bought. I had the Spaghetti Nello. A dish named after the restaurant. You would think it would be their signature dish. Disgusting. If you have to eat at Crystal Court, you're MUCH better off going to Wahoos or Rubys. Cons: Worst restaurant in OC more

best mozzarella marinara and osso bucco 7/14/2007

I love this place and am excited to be going down south tomorrow to eat there again. I have taken friends there and it's the best italian food around.. the chef comes out-- Pino- and talks to everyone and will try anything requested if at all possible. every bite has been amazing. yummmmmmmm more

Food was gross 11/28/2005

My pasta tasted like it came out of the can. The salad was tastless. I'm not a very picy eater and rarely can I not finish my meal but this meal was just gross. more

Will never go back again. Food was unpalatable. 5/7/2005

I'm not usually a picky eater, but the food was terrible. My boyfriends salad tasted like it was from the supermarket, and my pasta tasted like chef boyardee, actually it was worst than chef boyardee. I am a big fan of Antenellos across from south coast, but this one is a don't go. Cons: food, pricy more
