Been watching too much top chef, where can I get excellent risotto / gnocci in LA?

Best risotto I've ever had was @ Craft LV, never had excellent gnocci!

      The gnocchi at Mauro's at Fred Segal never disappoints.

          2d Angeli's melt-in-your-mouth clouds of ricotta gnocchi... (I just wish the butter were actually browned a bit and a heavier hand with the sage was used...)

            I'm a really big fan of Angeli's gnocchi with their marinara sauce.

          Best gnochi is easily at Osteria Mamma. Their risotto's are usually very nice as well.

            Best gnocci I've had was at Gjelina with ricotta and brown butter. They were light little buttery pasta pillows of pleasure.

              Spumoni in Sherman Oaks. They offer a "Gnocchi Bar" with 9-10 different types of gnocchi. It's my favorite in LA.
