This has been a family favorite for years. Its a quaint Italian eatery with a side patio for outdoor dining. The special chop salad with their home baked bread, their buffalo mazzorella grilled veggies, and so much more.

This is one of my favorite movie theaters. You get a blanket and free popcorn, and there is multi-levels of play. You order what you like at your seat and a gourmet treat and drinks are delivered to your seat. Small and intimate theater. Quaint location in old town Pasadena. So many great finds in this community.
