West L.A. - Great Italian Resturants

I have been to Guidos, Anna's and Pastinas. All very good. Tried Matteos and it was ok. Any other places any foodies can suggest on the westside?

  1. vincenti in brentwood and bella roma spqr in beverlywood.

    1. On the upper (upper) end, Valentino on Pico in Santa Monica. On the medium end, Carmine II's on Santa Monica Blvd. in Century City. Some here like il Moro on Olympic in West LA (one of the high rise buildings just west of Sawtelle), but we weren't crazy about it. il Grano on Santa Monica Blvd. in West LA, especially for their crudo. Finally il Forno on Ocean Park Blvd. near 33rd in Santa Monica (in the little mall with The Counter on the end of it).

      1. For high end, IL BOTTE and VIA VENETO in Santa Monica, VINCENTI and PECORINO in Brentwood. Oh also, PICCOLO in Venice.

        1. Pomodoro (a small independent place, NOT the nationwide chain) on Westwood Blvd. south of Wilshire is a nice one with good food.

          1. Vincenti in Brentwood and Drago on Wilshire in Santa Monica. Both excellent.
