    1. re: Bones25 is still open - i remember their sunday brunch back in the early 90' was awesome - beautiful weather....i think it cost $9 and it was great...

    2. Didnt there used to be one in the mini-mall on Olympic and Robertson?

      1. All the Viva la Pastas mentioned are gone, and no great loss. In Palos Verdes area try Neals in San pedro on 5th st. or the new Frascati in Ave of the Peninsula, or Il Toscano in Torrance on Hawthorne, in Hillside village.

        1. Viva la Pasta is in Wood Ranch, a sub created city of Simi Valley which is traditionally known for having bad restaurants. Wood Ranch is located between the 23 frwy-Fillmore and the 118-Simi Valley frwy. The restaurant has great food but what I just find amazing is the soups. The soups are always outstanding and no I am not a soup person. I am told they have a Sunday lobster brunch but I have yet to go in person. YES I know you. E-mail me at my e-mail on my bio.
