  1. I assumed you probably wanted an answer last night....

    Only went once. Had the pappardelle, which I thought was very tasty. A friend had the eggplant parmesan; it had a different presentation than what I normally see (the eggplant slices weren't layered on top of each other and were instead arranged in one layer around the plate). The cioppino looked very tasty, but it requires a 20-30 wait (which I couldn't, so I didn't get it).

    The Biltmore and Casey's Irish pub are both with walking distance.

    1. Get the specials or the ciopinno

          the desserts are always great. bring your own wine. i think golden golpher is right near by.

      1. Had wonderful gnocchi there about a year ago. I don't remember if it was a special or on the regular menu.

        1. I eat there all the time - love the arrabiata and also the chicken dijon. Great meatballs, too.

          Golden Gopher is practically next door, and Broadway Bar is around the corner, both fantastic bars.

          1. Late response, but maybe useful for your next visit...

            Get the tagliatelle alla bolognese.

            Their best dessert is not their tiramisu, but rather their ricotta cheesecake.

              Hmmm.... maybe it was the tagliatelle I had? I definitely remember the bolognese part.... Whichever it was, it was delicious....

              1. re: J.L.

                yep, if i check out next time i'll give these recs a try, after all these years i still haven't tried it.

                1. re: kevin

                  Kevin, did you go this time? When you say "...after all these years i still haven't tried it." do you meant that particular dish (tagliatelle alla bolognese) or the restaurant itself? I was confused by your "ASAP" request in the title of your post - as if you were going that night? And, if you went, what did you have and how did you like it?

                  1. re: Servorg

                    my apologies. i never made it.

                    something came out and i couldn't make it.

                    but i will file the requests for the future.

                    btw, i hit up pann's again this labor day wknd, and i believe the same wknd last year they had the corned beef hash and eggs but thy didn't this wknd.

                    though the fried chicken wings with potato salad and sauteed spinach and biscuit was pretty good. hit the proverbial spot.

                    1. re: kevin

                      "btw, i hit up pann's again this labor day wknd, and i believe the same wknd last year they had the corned beef hash and eggs but thy didn't this wknd."

                      That made me laugh out loud. I went to Pann's both Saturday and Sunday morning over this holiday weekend and struck out on CBH both days. I went with their Country breakfast instead, (white, sausage studded gravy over their biscuits with potatoes and I add two eggs over easy to my order ala carte). I even emailed Jim Poulos back, complaining about the difficulty of finding CBH at his family's restaurant, after I got an email from him because I'm a member of the "Pann's Club" and use my Pann's frequent diner card to get points and free food for the money I spend there! Finally on Monday, Labor day I gave up and went out to Brent's Deli for breakfast for an omelet.

                        Dedication and Peristence. Keep up the good fight.

                        1. re: Servorg

                          btw, ig otta say i do really like that double cheezeburger special at ronnie's too. great stuff, esp for the price.

                          it reminds me of the kind of cheeseburger that i would get at disneyland or knott's berry farm in the old days, but i mean that in a somewhat positive way.

                          1. re: kevin

                            As to Ronnie's double cheeseburger...It's exactly why (and how) I've written it up here more than once. We go for it regularly. I like it better than the one at Pepy's (their "Monster Burger") and my wife always gets the fries and I get their house made potato chips and we mix and match the chips and fries.

                            1. re: Servorg

                              i get those pickled cucumbers or is it cucumber salad with the burgers.

                              but obviously pann's patty melt is a million times better, sorry, make that a gazillion times better. though with the patty melt at pann's sadly after devouring one you can almost feel yourself having a heart attack.

                  2. re: J.L.

                    the bolognese is pretty goddamn good. I've also gotten the beef carpaccio numerous times - not unique by any stretch of the imagination but still delicious.
