Favorite Pasta Dish

I know most people crave a bowl of delicious pasta at some point or another. I'm curious to get some recommendations of what your favorite pasta dish is. Could be neighborhood trattoria to Spago, tomato based, cream sauce, whatever your fancy. Any pasta dish that makes you smile when you think about it....

  1. Two of my favorites are the pasta with bottarga from Madeo on Beverly and the spaghetti al'amatriciana from Farfalla on Hillhurst.

      I enjoy the amatriciana at Farfalla, but find it surpassed by the Bombolotti al'amatriciana at Angelini Osteria, which is sublime.

    2. Gnocchi’s with rosemary chicken from Naples in Downtown Disney and the lobster raviolis from Macaroni Grill

      1. Ravioli or gnocchi in red sauce at Al Gelato in Beverly Hills. Fabulous old school red sauce. Papardelle in porcini mushroom ragu or spaghetti carbonara at Enoteca Drago. Orichette in Lamb Ragu at Il Pastaio.

          By any chance does Al Gelato deliver? Is there an online menu?

            Al Gelato does not deliver, and parking on Robertson really sucks. It's also cash only.

              One of my favorite pasta dishes is Al Gelato's ravioli in their homemade red tomato sauce, or their gnocchi in pesto. You can't go wrong. As for parking, I agree that parking on Robertson stinks (I've had better luck on the side streets, like Gregory Ave).

        2. Squid ink trenette with smoked salmon cream sauce at La Buca on Melrose.

            Sounds wonderful!! I love squid ink pasta... La Buca is a favorite of mine too... for their Gnocchi. For stuffed pasta, nothing beats Alejo's Canelloni


          2. Pumpkin gnocchi at Zucca in downtown LA.
