Thanks to LA Eater for this report on Trattoria Neapolis, a dazzling new restaurant coming to South Lake. Will this be the game-changer South Lake so desperately needs? Discuss. Here’s the scoop from LA Eater: Perry Vidalakis spent 10 years conceptualizing Trattoria Neapolis, traveling around the country and to Italy for inspiration. On July 10 his vision becomes a reality and […]

Roma Italian Deli

Roma Italian Deli

WHY Excellent Italian prosciutti, cheeses, sausages, salumi and gnocchi, sold with style and lots of sample tastes.

Ugo’s Italian Deli

Ugo’s Italian Deli

The Hamptons have arrived in Sierra Madre, thanks to this upscale foodie spot, where the owner is friendly enough to accept marriage proposals. (We asked her to marry us after tasting her baked goods.) She does all her own baking, so you might as well just give in and order the treats first. We may […]

Porta Via

Porta Via

Vic Ciulla and John Weithas, two genial longtime Pasadenans who used to run Twin Palms, own this white-tiled, high-ceilinged Italian deli, which has successfully filled Pasadena’s considerable need for upscale Italian takeout and café food with easy parking. Order your custom salad or superb panini or sub-style sandwich and snag a tall table inside or […]

Briganti

Briganti

Briganti is the sort of lively Tuscan trattoria that’s common on the westside but rare on the eastside, and locals can’t get enough of its seafood salad, burrata with pesto and roasted tomatoes, ethereal thin-crust pizzas, classic pastas, excellent fresh-fish specials, and a lovely flourless chocolate cake. The joint is always jumping, with noise bouncing […]

The waiters are pros, the Italian chef is talented, and the atmosphere is warm. We have many favorites on the menu, including mussels with white wine and garlic, caprese salad, Caesar salad and […]

Il Fornaio

Il Fornaio

This California-based chain is one of Old Town’s better restaurants. In a bright, modern, noisy setting (complete with a good bar), white-aproned waiters ferry satisfying wines by the glass, savory pastas (the seafood linguine and meat lasagnas are particularly good), thin-crusted pizzas and tasty salads; we avoid the chicken dishes, which tend to be dry. […]

Columbo’s

Columbo’s

Columbo’s is an Eagle Rock institution, a 1950s Italian steakhouse where fans of time travel worship red-checkered tablecloths, padded booths and slow service. Do yourself a solid and just relax (and remember the bar’s motto, “Our standard drink is a double.”) The matriarch occupies the back booth most nights, sipping her gimlet and listening to […]
