Really good Italian in the Valley?
Hey all, have a family dinner coming up and want something good, preferably between Sherman Oaks and Encino on Ventura. Something setting-wise along the lines of Marmalade Cafe, La Frite, etc. (convivial, fun, social!) If that can be found with great food, we'd have our match.
Anyone have tips?

Spumoni Sherman Oaks on the Blvd. Intimate, friendly and used to have great food. Haven't been in awhile tho. Great house wine too.

It's no Osteria Mozza, Il Grano or Valentino, but Il Tiramisu in Sherman Oaks is nice, friendly and reasonably priced. They will work with you if you want to do a prix-fixe menu for a larger group btw.
