  1. Are you looking for a dish in a restaurant, or fresh pasta to cook at home? La Buca serves an awesome squid ink trenette.

      Thanks!! What is Trenette? A type of pasta? And where is La Buca?

      1. re: cmk1023

        Trenette is wide flat pasta, not dissimilar to tagliatelle. I often fantasize about La Buca's version!

        La Buca is on Melrose - here is the website

    2. I believe Drago in Santa Monica has some good squid ink in their seafood risotto. Happy eating!

      1. Il Pastaio (another in the Drago family of restaurants) also has a very nice Risotto Nero

          1. You can buy it at Surfas in Culver City.

            1. If you are nearer to Burbank, try the Monte Carlo Deli/Pinocchio's on Magnolia. They have a great Italian deli and supermarket, with squid ink pasta, and many other kinds I have never seen before, anywhere.

              1. Locanda Veneta near Cedars still have them?
