I just wanted to share my favorite Italian place near home, and recommend that everyone in coastal OC gives it a try. I LOVE Roman Cucina on PCH in Sunset Beach - the atmosphere is so cute - we like the patio with the twinkle lights, even though PCH is right outside, I never even notice it. Wednesday nights are packed, as all bottles of wine are 1/2 off or BYOB for no corkage- which is reason enough to try it! - but just give yourself extra time to sit at the bar and open a bottle of wine and relax. As far as food goes, it is delicious, simple and relatively inexpensive (avg main dish for about $11 - $18). I highly recommend the Sausage Mozzarrella Pasta, and even the dinner salad that comes with the entrees is delicious. Just figured I would share my fave spot since I have gotten such great recs from all of you - I hope you like it!
Also, side note....whoever hires the waiters seems to use the same standards Abercrombie does...they are young, beautiful surfer-type guys - but without any attitude. Service has always been great, and I don't mind a little eye-candy with my dinner :)
