I'm new to the area, but enjoyed the SF Hound group. I hear Patina is opening up an Italian restaurant this fall. How about others? Read recent threads on Valentino... Any thoughts on La Scala, Il Cielo, Il Grano, Matteo's, Vincenti, Toscana, Fresco? Grazie!
I keep returning to La Fornoretta in Old Town, Pasadena, a popular joint owned by one lucky and grateful Sicilian and his family. I've had good meals elsewhere, like at Pizzacotto in Brentwood and Drago's, but for reasonable prices, nice atmosphere, good service, and great food, this place remains consistant. Buon appetito!
