Seeking affordable, quality Italian on the west side

I don't eat red meat or poultry.

On my radar list at the moment: Alejo and Brunello Trattoria. Am I on the right track?

  1. Well, I can cross of Alejo off my list after trying it tonight. Definitely not hound-worthy.

    1. have you tried Da Pasquale in BH? i haven't been there in a long time, but i've enjoyed some solid meals there. it's pretty old school Southern Italian comfort food.

      Da Pasquale Restaurent
      9749 Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

      1. Brunello would be a good choice to try. Have you tried Sprazzo on Westwood Blvd. just south of Wilshire about 3 blocks?

        Brunello Trattoria
        6001 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232

        Sprazzo Cucina Italiana
        1389 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024

        1. What about Fritto Misto, on 4th ish and Broadway ish? Much like a cafe, pretty solid food, not very expensive, and on the westside.

          1. Osteria Latini & Pizzicotto are my favorites. Osteria Latini, is a more refined atmosphere. Pizzicotto has a more rustic vibe. Both are dependable, moderately priced, and delicious.
