      1. THE restaurant you want is: Osteria La Buca on Melrose at Wilton. It is the most authentic Italian you will find this side of Napoli. Phone: 323.462.1900 or web: I eat there regularly and can testify that it has ... hand down ... much better pasta, pizza, etc. that Mozza or anyplace else I have tried.

        1. You could be thinking of Miceli's which is located on Las Palmas just a few feet South of Hollywood Blvd. They do have good ravioli, pizza and lasagna among other things and have been around since 1949. Red leather booths, classic food and a traditional Italian flare makes this place a Hollywood institution.
