Italian restaurant recommendation-Orange County
I'm looking for a great italian restaurant in Orange County for my Mother-in laws Birthday.
She lives in Fountain Valley, but we can go anywhere.
Thanks so much!
What type of Italian (Southern, Northern, etc.)?
Upscale or casual?
For an experience with more atmosphere and distinction, Onotria on Bristol Street in Costa Mesa would do it. Cuisine is more aligned with Tuscany and the central region.
For a casual, red sauce meal, I'd recommend Luigi's d'Italia on State College Boulevard in Anaheim. Haven't been there in awhile, but the food, service, and neighborhoody atmosphere has always been great, and it's also a place I'm comfortable taking dining companions who are less adventurous.
