I have heard a lot about this restraunt, mainly that it is great but very very very expensive, almost to the point of being a fault (lets face it, no matter how good food is, there comes a point when the price is just absurd and more a reflection of the name then of the food).

Is this really the case with them? I have heard they have a bit of a snooty atmosphere as well and have heard a few horror stories on other discussion boards about hostess, waiter, and chef attitude at the restraunt.

Is there anywhere else in Santa Monica/Brentwood/Westside area for great authentic home cooked type italian with creativity that doesnt come with the arm and a leg price tag or holier than thou attitude? Is this restraunt really truly worth it in comparison to some of these other places?

Thanks
