Help please. Westside Itailan Sunday Dinner

Graphracker Oct 26, 2006 04:13 PM

A group of friends meet once a month for a Sunday dinner and it's my turn to pick. Looking for an Italian restaurant on the west side of town with moderate priced entrees ($20 - $25). Thanks!

    I recently went to Osteria Latini in Brentwood that I thought was pretty good.

    You can see the website at:

          Il Moro generally gets good reviews and I think it would hit that price range.

            I second the Il Moro suggestion.

            Pizzicotto in Brentwood. The pastas are so good and priced in the teens. Also a good wine list. Make reservations.

              Vito in Santa Monica is pretty good. Here's a link to their menu: http://www.vitorestaurant.com/menu.html
