  1. How about Girasole on Larchmont? good italian food, small and intimate. I think it may be BYOB. Be sure to reserve a table, just to be safe.

    1. Luna Park on La Brea
      Campanile on La Brea

        Luna Park would hardly qualify as "quieter" per the original request. Quite the opposite.

      2. il sole on sunset..nice italian intimate atomosphere

        1. need alittle more info...somewhere expensive and special, or casual?

          1. Jar, Campanile, or Lucques for fine dining.

            There are many good French places in your area, but they can get a bit rowdy - save for Mimosa, which is known for its more authentic French food.

            Same with Italian. However, Ca'Brea is not too loud - I think it could work. It is a bit dark, but the food is hearty and fantastic, and it's practically right next to LACMA.
