Dan Tana's Restaurant Review

: Hollywood moguls, actors, screenwriters --- and wannabes of all of the above --- have been jamming this place since 1964. They can’t be here because of the décor: red dining rooms, red leatherette booths and Chianti bottles hanging from the rafters. And we doubt they’re here for the old-fashioned but inflationary-priced food. Starters range from clams casino to a caprese salad, while pastas include spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna and fettuccine Alfredo. Retro dishes like veal Marsala, shrimp diavolo and chicken cacciatore are offered, some named after famous customers or former customers. The once-heralded steaks are also pricey but not particularly memorable, ditto for the wine list, and finales feature spumoni, tiramisu and zabaglione for two. This place has outlived many of its celebrity-favored competitors, some of which provided much better food. Yet old and young continue to flock here, making this spot great for people-watching, both inside and out.
