      You could go to Mozza. But try Girasole or La Buca, both are small and not such a scene, but have very good food.

        yesss... im from nyc as well. Tell me about it, Lupa is my favorite place in the world. Gnocchi from that place makes my heart melt. Anyway, I went to Il Pastaio the other night and it was wonderful. Give it a try. Beverly Hills area
