Coming in to LA next week and have reservations on Friday night. Was wondering for anyone whose been there if they could pass along recommendations of dishes. I've heard the apps and pasta are what's really good and to pass on entrees all together, but want to get the chowhound's opinions.

Thanks in advance...

    grilled octopus, one of the buratta dishes from the mozzarella bar, orecchiette with sausage, tagliattelle with oxtail ragu, rosemary cakes with olive oil gelato

      Definitely the raviolo with egg and ricotta. New dish of egg with truffle cheese and shaved mushrooms knocked me out last night I love the strawberry crepe dessert. The one with roasted cherries in balsamic vinegar and a almond pastry is very good also.

        The octopus is a perennial favorite. I also love the tripe and burrata with artichoke. I balance it out with the butter lettuce salad usually.

        I skip the entrees. If I'm doing dessert, my fave is the olive oil cake. It's what was recommended by one of the women working behind the Mozzarella bar (not Nancy), and she was right!

          The quail is not to be missed! At least get one to share.

            Everyone I know has enjoyed the beef tagliata. Very good entree dish.

              Do not miss the burrata with bacon and the egg raviolo.
