We had a delicious dinner at La Torretta. Our favorite dinners are the wonderful Caesar salad, delicious pasta with sausage, spinach and ricotta stuffed in a large pasta shell, the Hawaiian sunfish and cheese cake for dessert! Perfect service as well.

Well, we found our new sushi spot! Unbelievable fish quality and outstanding service to match. We sat at the sushi bar and it basically felt like we had our own private sushi chef. Shout out to chef Eric for giving us the meal of the year! Can’t wait to come back for many more celebrations!

This is my second time eating here. Each dish is always more surprising, more flavorful, more harmonious than its description. Order many different dishes. Portions are perfectly sized to my taste, but I HAVE immediately placed a repeat order when a dish was spectacular. The servers are reliable guides, especially if you have a dietary restriction or allergy. “Arizona” was a great waiter. Pleasant mid-century modern decor in a motor lodge—ridiculously outshined by the food. And a good cocktail doesn’t hurt.

The food is absolutely unbelievable. With all the different spices and seasonings it’s like a party in your mouth. I’ve never in my life taste it such delicious food. It reminds me of a place that I used to go to New York called the spice market. It was the meat district in New York. The lamb chops were absolutely delicious and quite a presentation. Kashmiri Korma with Shrimp is my favorite dish. The flavors are absolutely incredible. Vegetable Pakora Cauliflower, green beans, sweet chili–soy was to die for definitely order this appetizer. The handmade hand stretched Garlic Naan is the best I’ve ever had. The Shrimp Chaat (Ceviche) as an appetizer is also amazing and a must have . The Spinach Saag with Chicken or Shrimp is mouth watering!! I could eat here every night the food is that good.

A very beautiful outdoor space. The staff is very attentive to your needs.I was our twin boys 21st birthday and they don't drink wine or hard liquor so my son looks at his brother and says i bet you wish you could have a Coors light? we all laughed and within about 5-10 minutes the chef sent someone out to get them beers, it was hilarious. The food is definitely spot on. I don't know if it's better than Cafe Monarch , but just as good for sure.
