This adorable little bistro has brought Mediterranean flair to Newport Beach for nearly 50 years. The pasta is fresh and cooked perfectly al dente, and the seafood dishes never cease to impress, particularly the calamari (try the calamari Irma: stuffed with crab and served in a succulent cream sherry sauce). The staff is friendly and attentive, and the patio table makes for one of the most delightful dining experiences in town.
