Los Angeles, CA. Homemade Italian cuisine always gets my mouth watering. There is some truth to the idea of 'fresh is best' and experiencing that first-hand in various restaurants has certainly provided a new aspect for my food enjoyment. I have heard of this place through others and friends who have come here for years. Whenever I show them a picture of some of what I have enjoyed, a warm smile crosses their face and they remember that meatball or that pasta dish followed by the name of the person with whom they came. This little eatery has that little 'something' better understood with a helping of meatballs and marinara or an endless supply of warm bread.
There is humility in the air and the aesthetic is simple: modest seating inside, a few chairs on the outside, an enticing display case of gelato, and familiar faces working behind the counters serving moderately priced Italian fare. The staff are friendly and some have worked there for quite some time. It's comforting to hear and see a waiter light up to their favorite food items and not simply because it's the seasonal special.
