Any restaurants in Los Angeles serve Ribollita?

When in Florence I fell in love with their hearty bread and vegetable soup, Ribollita, and don't often find it. With this chilly damp weather it would be the PERFECT time to consume some!
Does anyone know of a restaurant that serves this soup?

        the kind i had in Osteria mozza was more like a pancake than the ribollita soup I used to eat in Florence... dense soup as it is, not nearly as dense/dry as this Osteria's interpretation. Not sure if PIzzeria's is anything like that.

        1. re: Kvguzman

          Thick but not anywhere near that dense. Maybe you got some from the end of the pot. Using it as a bread schmear sounds pretty good though.

      2. I really enjoyed the ribolita at Angelina Osteria. YUM! I could have had 3 bowls of that for my dinner. Not sure if it was a special, though, or part of the regular menu.

        1. i think panzanella in sherman oaks, on ventura, may have a similar dish, a bread soup with vegetables, but by a different name - might even just be pappa al'pomodoro. but worth a try.
