Restaurant and bar felt like you were not in the typical faux OC setting. Terrific Euro-Italian food/cuisine; this is NOT a pasta house!

The service was incredibly slow, to get anything we had to flag someone down, we gave up after asking twice for a lemon and salt and pepper. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry, we were going to the theater

Thank you Groupon. We love this restaurant but normally cannot go because it is too expensive. This gave us a great night out!

Service at the bar was a little slow to start, but once we made contact with the bartender everything was great.

Regular-height chairs and tables in the bar. My partner and I have an easier time sitting in standard height chairs.

The service does not do the food justice. It's ok t wait for a table, it seemed like a free for all with no system and no reassurance that if a table opens up, it won't just be grabbed by someone randomly - as happened to us. Additionally, we ordered 4 plates and 3 of those arrived together and but the last plate arrived almost 30 minutes later (a cold meat and cheese plate) after having to ask about it's status and have the waiter come by to see if arrived only to say "they told me it was brought out to you." When the bill finally did come, the food total was off by $6 (tabulated by hand) and the Groupon discount was off by $4 ($120 instead $124) and had to be corrected.

To Master Chef Massimo Navarretta—who grew up farming and wine-making in Campania, Italy—it makes little sense to separate wine from food. At his eatery Onotria, which received Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence in 2011 and 2012, he groups dishes on the menu by wine pairing, rather than by main ingredient or ability to be balanced on the tip of a tiny dessert spoon. Seafood-based plates, such as prosciutto-wrapped tiger shrimp or poached octopus with artichokes, complement a glass of dry, sparkling white wine. Lightly breaded pork medallions accompany a light, dry red, while hearty lamb chops or filet go with a bolder varietal such as zinfandel or merlot. These dishes can serve as tasting plates for groups, entrees for individuals, or finger food for visiting giants.

To create the seasonal menu, the kitchen uses hormone- and antibiotic-free meats, as well as organic and biodynamic ingredients. Meals are served under a high-peaked ceiling with wooden rafters, in a dining room with exposed-brick columns and mottled walls that echo the look of an old-country trattoria.
