We strive to offer the authentic with a contemporary twist, the classic dishes made modern. We import the essentials—extra virgin olive oils, mozzarella from Naples, Parmigiano-Reggiano, salumi, aceto balsamico, and honor the local, sourcing the tastiest local fish, meat and game, and greenmarket vegetables.

"After you have been here once, you will be tempted to order the owner Ronnea's cheesecake as an appetizer so you'll have time (and room) to savor every creamy, delicious bite."

"There are many Italian restaurants in O.C but not many would bring me back again and again. This restaurant is simple in decor and unpretentious with their family-style recipes."

"If you love amazing Italian food and delicious cheesecake, you MUST frequent Pepe and the family at Ristorante Mascarpone's."
