“Happiness comes from doing what you love, with and for the people you love. We love making pastas!!!” Chef Paolo

I was with some friends the other evening and our host threatened to order pizza. The youngest member of our assembly responded favorably to this suggestion. I suggested that we might look for a local restaurant where we could go out and get some pizza. So, off we went in search of pizza from our East Hollywood location. I had in mind a couple of old Italian restaurants that I remembered in the Los Feliz adjacent area. Just as we entered this area our host spotted an Italian flag, on a building, in a corner strip mall and we decided to explore. Once there we found a pleasant outdoor seating area bustling with activity and we were accommodated at a nice corner table.

We were directed to a virtual menu and began our perusal. When our server asked us to place our order, I had already surveyed our group to determine our choices of toppings for a pizza; pepperoni, pineapple and olives. “We don’t have any pizza” said our server. Back to one. Our young guest settled for SPAGHETTI and MEATBALLS from the children’s menu. “Looks good but I don’t know if it’s enough” he said. (He’s in town from Texas, where, as we know, everything is bigger). The rest of us ordered the INSALATA STELLA, the RAVIOLI VERDI DI MOZZARELLA WITH PANNA & FUNGHI and a cream of mushroom sauce, the LASAGNA BOLOGNESE and the SALMONE CON RISOTTO DI LIMONE.

The salad was lovely with its arugula, tomatoes, light balsamic dressing and shaved parmesan. The Ravioli was exceptional having been made from scratch along with the sauce, chosen from a variety all made from scratch. The Lasagna was reported to have been “unlike any” our friend had ever had. (I’m pretty sure he liked it). And the Salmon was prepared just right with the delicious Risotto to match.

We finished the meal with the TROIO Tiramisù whip with Oreo cookies (guess who ordered that?) and the PANNA COTTA CON NUTELLA.

The Troio was embarrassingly good. I guess there’s a reason why Oreo cookies are so popular. Blend them with tiramisu whip and yea, hard to go wrong. The Panna Cotta was excellent but it was overpowered by the layer of Nutella on the top. The café americanos were also good and we left this establishment none the worse for not having had our pepperoni, pineapple and olive pizza.

It is in the $$$ price range so unless your ready to splurge it’s not going to replace your local pizza delivery but worth it if you’re looking for homemade pastas in the Los Feliz area.
