Chowhounds,

I have an unexpected friend from out of town who is craving good Italian food - and I just found this out minutes ago. It doesn't have to be fancy, but it should be tasty - homemade pasta is a plus! (Sorry, we find Ugo's to be mediocre).

More importantly, because of their time restrictions, we're trying to find something close to West LA or Culver City area - thanks for any suggestions!

    We've always liked our meals at Brunello's Trattoria in Culver City.

      I hear great things about Brunello's and still need to try it. I would also add Hostaria del Piccolo in Santa Monica or Villetta in Brentwood to the list.

        Keep it simple and go to the best Trattoria on the westside. Nothing fancy, but I have taken many of my friends who visit from Venice and they love TOSCANA. Casual, fun, every server speaks Italian and your friends will feel very very much at home. I promise you can not go wrong taking Italian friends to Toscana. Pastas are wonderful and they always love the wood-fired steak.
