Where to go for Risotto?

I just adore risotto.

Are there any good places in the L.A. area to try for risotto? Thank you for any suggestions!

  1. The best risotto I ever had was at Valentino.

    1. One of the best I've had was at La Terza. It was a special at a Saturday lunch. Don't know if it's on the regular menu but certainly worth a call to find out.

      1. I have yet to visit but there is a new-ish restaurant on Ventura Blvd in Studio City, called (drum roll please...) Risotto.
        From what I've read, the postings on this board have been quite positive.

        1. re: bodie

          I work in Studio City! I will have to find this place. Thank you for the tip.

        2. Yes, at Max in Sherman Oaks, there is a mushrooom risotto with duck confit, arugula, parmesan and truffle oil. Yum!

          It is really rich, and even though a modest portion, you will not leave hungry!

          1. Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills. The risotto with shrimp and ginger has a wonderful flavor combination. You can taste the shrimp stock, but it isn't overpowering by any means.
