            Looking back on an old thread here -- is this the Osteria or the Pizzeria, or does it not matter?

        Go there. Your out of towners will love the raucous atmosphere and the amazing assortment of movie-biz insiders who populate the place. The drinks are strong and the food ain't bad, either.

        Should you really want a little "flava" you can go across the street after dinner to the Chinese restaurant ("Formosa," I seem to recall) for Mai-Tais.

            I'd say Pizzeria Mozza if you want really good food. Rainbow Bar and Grill has decent food so less pleasing to you--but it's got the West Hollywood vibe.
