La Vecchia Cucina in Santa Monica. Anyone Been?
I wouldn't bother with La Vecchia (even though friends have dragged me there a couple of times). For Italian on Main St., try Via Veneto or Ado and just off the Venice boardwalk, try Piccolo.

Um, I went. The food was edible (how is that for damming with faint praise?) I understand now why we don't see much on Chowhound about this place. Food passable. Very middle brow. Took 45 minutes between appetizers and entrees. Maybe okay for a drink. Would not voluntarily return to eat.
