    Is this Allesio connected to the one in Platt Village in Woodland Hills?

      I will be at Allesio in about 2 hours for a birthday dinner. It is always good.

          We like Maria's Kitchen.

          Good basic Italian. Great Bread with olive oit and Balsamic Vinerar caraffs on the table. Great Carbonare and a pretty good Cesar Salad.

            Well, this is my stomping grounds and unfortunately there's not much. Depends on what you want tho. I love Brent's Deli(Corbin and Parthenia). Chow chum and I also take the extra effort to go to Simi and eat at Red's BBQ (Sycamore exit double left onto Cochran and into shopping center on R side.(805) 581-9076 We always share a combo-he does the meat and I the chicken. We get 3 sides and the caesar salad. It's plenty and we walk away with under 30$ for 2!. If you like Indian, Punjab has a great buffet for 11.95$. Nordhoff and Shirley just behind the mall. If you like Japanese, go to this little place at Reseda/Devonshire called Shogun Sushi. CSUN is not in session now so, you may just get seated w/o having to wait forever! The food is worth it Cheap and good. I love the sushi and chum loves the chicken teriyaki. :) KQ

              Tons of good casual dining or hole in the wall spots in Northridge but in terms of fancier places Alessio is pretty much it.

                I agree with the Alessio rec. Very good Italian food in a nice setting. I love their Veal Pizzaiola! Yum!
