  1. I had never heard of it but it sounds great. I'm a big fan of Locanda Veneta:


    1. FED: What's good there? Any standouts?

        i was pretty surprised. considering the price point, pretty much everything was good. some things were really outstanding: the gnocchi were amazing, the agnolotti and probably the tripe soup were the things that really rang my bell.

      2. Gave them a try a couple of times this week (once for lunch, once for dinner). I don't know... just wasn't crazy about anything I had.

        I'll stick to Colori on Figueroa. Also excited that Terroni is coming to downtown too... yes!

          Having eaten at Colori,(both locations) Maccheroni, Cuccina Rustica (Wilshire and Fig) (several times) and having gotten talked into going to Terroni in DTLA last night, I gotta say, two starters, a split pasta, two drinks, and $90 later, that Terroni is at the bottom of that list for me.

        2. I've been hearing good things. Gonna try next week. If you're willing to travel just a bit, All'Angolo in K-town is very solid at a similar price point.

              These folks get great reviews. But, what's with the rolling pin?

              Authentic? I am not an expert.
