Still going strong after more than 40 years

"Still going strong after more than 40 years", this Santa Monica "classic" from Piero Selvaggio is "worth the splurge" thanks to its "delicious" Italian cuisine and "incomparable wine list" that rivals "the best in the city"; with "exceptional" service and a "civilized" atmosphere full of "old-school charm", it "sets the standard" for "special-occasion" dining; P.S. the small-plates menu at the Vin Bar is a "more affordable" option.
