Anyone been? It's the newish restaurant on La Cienega, near the Beverly Center. I've seen good user reviews online from Citysearch, Digitalcity, Calendarlive... Is it worth checking out then?

    I think it was reviewed in either New Times or L.A. Weekly within the last two weeks.

    For the most part, the review was unfavorable.

      Meredith Brody in the New Times - scathing might be a more appropriate word.

      The reviews on citysearch and digitalcity glow oddly. They make me a little suspicious of who may have written them. I used to trust citysearch (with a grain or two of salt, of course), but after going through the "Best of" my trust has withered. I'm not saying that I agree with Brody 100% of the time, but it does seem strange that her review is so completely and totally opposite of the reviews on those web sites.

        Did you know that Citysearch contributors just rated Bucca De Beppo "best Italian" in Los Angeles? There is a story today in Yahoo restaurant news about it. So much for Citysearch.
