Not only is the service amazing here, and not only is the atmosphere phenomenal, but the food. It's all about the incredible food here.
The pasta is homemade, flavorful, and creamy. The restaurant is dimly lit and intimate.
We're a family owned Italian Osteria located in Hollywood, California. Our goal is to bring you the fresh, authentic taste of the Veneto region every time you sit at one of our tables. We have a vast selection of Italian wines, and International Certified Sommelier on staff to answer any questions you may have.
If you're a fan of soup, start with the Minestrone made with green peas, cabbage, kale, potatoes, rapini, summer squash, onion, celery, and Castelluccio lentil. It's perfect and warm.
The Frittura Mista is a great appetizer option to start with as well, it has Fried Calamari, Shrimp, Zucchini, Carrots, Red and yellow peppers.
My favorite appetizer is the Tagliere with dolce latte gorgonzola, parmigiano reggiano, truffle pecorino, fresh jam, truffle honey, focaccia crostini, and fresh fruit.
If you're a fan of seafood the Impepata is a great option as well, it has clams and mussels in white wine clam jus with black pepper and parsley.
I never go anywhere without trying a salad or two, and their Polipone is incredible, it has Grilled Mediterranean octopus, fingerling potatoes, black olives, celery, green beans, and lemon dressing. The Campo is also very good with Mixed Greens Salad, Shaved Fennel, Endive, Fresh Radish , Pecorino Sardo Cheese, and a Balsamic Dressing.
In terms of the main course, your options are abundant. The Gnocci is incredible with beef bolognese sauce, and parmigiano reggiano. It's delicious in its simplicity.
The Bigolo Al Nero is great, it's made with black ink pasta, shrimps, bottarga, and peperoncino.
Lasagna is phenomenal, the quadrucci ai porcini is creamy and made with fresh spinach ravioli, butter & sage porcini mushroom sauce and fresh truffle.
The Tagliatelle Al Pomodoro is my favorite made with datterini tomatoes, basil, parmigiano reggiano.
Best for last: Pappardelle all'Agnello with braised lamb shoulder, porcini mushroom and pecorino cheese.
If you're not feeling pasta try one of these dishes:
Branzino: grilled Mediterranean branzino fillet, cherry tomatoes, fennel, black olives, rapini broccoli
Salmone: baked Scottish salmon, asparagus, roasted potatoes, salmoriglio sauce
Costine: roasted lamb chop, spicy rapini broccoli, potatoes, and natural jus
Of course, you can't leave an Italian restaurant without dessert so make sure you try their tiramisu or their gelato.
