Summerlicious – Santa Monica Trattoria

July is a big birthday month within my circle of friends. With birthdays, come get togethers and there is always food involved. What is perfect about this time of year is that Summerlicious is in full effect and we definitely took advantage.

This delightful evening we dined at Santa Monica Trattoria a quaint Italian restaurant just on the Queensway. Completely casual, our server was also the owner of the place. He was great! Friendly, efficient, he really took care of us this night.
