Spumoni Sherman Oaks

My hubby and I love Spumoni - it reminds us of the (long gone) Gold Spike in San Francisco. Excellent food, friendly service, and not expensive! The Gnocchi is amazing. If anyone has found a better Italian restaurant in this part of the Valley, let me know, and in the meantime, we're looking forward to becoming "regulars" here.

  1. I have eaten at most the nearby Italian places (live in Sherman Oaks)
    and while I have favorite dishes at others: Maria's (pizza bianchi), Rosti's
    (vongole & gnocchi), Mazzarino's (garlic bread), etc. there none as
    good at such a reasonable price.

    1. re: tofueater

      Mazzarino's (on Riverside, right?) has been closed for awhile due to a kitchen fire. The sign on the door says they'll be "reopening soon" but I'd give 'em a call before heading in that direction.

    2. If you haven't tried the calamari appetizer you should do it next time you go -- fantastic.
