Italian restaurant in the Hollywood/WeHo adjacent area

I am meeting a friend for dinner tonight and we would like to have Italian.

We have been to Osteria Mozza and loved it, but would like to try out a new place.

Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Hungry and Helpless,

  1. Angelini Osteria is usually pretty good, and I also like Terroni. Many many people like La Buca too although I think it's pretty pedestrian. Delancey is sort of hit or miss, but if you want to travel a little further east I've only every had a good time at Little Dom's.

    1. I discovered Melograno late last year after a couple of friends of mine took me there. It's on Hollywood blvd. at little west of Wilcox. The cooking is true Italian with no pizza in sight. I love their tagliatelle with boar ragu but their raviolis are amazing too. It's very subtle cooking and the flavors are amazing. I don't know why this restaurant hasn't been talked about more but it's one of my favourites.
