Ended up their by accident. $12 valet parking. Very small portions. No Grey Goose or Belvedere vodka. Just not our type of restaurant. Pasta very heavily sauced, they recommend a salad, pasta and main dish are the portions are small. I would not return.
We ordered Frittura Mista as appetizer. It is really really good!!!! The calamari and shrimp is amazingly cooked!!! Love it!!!! BUT, the Gnocchi I ordered is a little bit over cooked. It's way too soft than normal ones. And the LIGHT cream sauce is really light..... The Roberto pizza my friend ordered is just a ok too... It's pretty light... The tiramisu is pretty good though. Except it is a little bit too juicy. Our server is really friendly and patient. We love his service!!!
A family restaurant, close to Studios Paramount. The service is good and welcoming, and some of the most delicious Italian dishes I have ever had, the food I have had in Italy is as good.
Very authentic and delicious Italian restaurant, grilled octopus is so soft and chewy! Fall in love with the sauce made with olive oil, it's so delicious! ! I ordered 3 types of pasta, the salty is suitable, the taste is sweet and delicious~ I also ordered the grilled lamb chops, which is not mutated at all, and very tender! Satisfied after eating, I forgot Tiramisu! Hahaha, hurry back to the restaurant to get it later, the deliciousness of tiramisu is worth another trip!
Hollywood's cheap and homely Italian restaurant
osteria mamma: 5732 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038
My explanation to Mr. Wu for an Italian restaurant like Osteria Mamma is that you see the mama in the name of the Italian restaurant, which must be the main traditional and warm family-style cuisine, and seeing Osteria means it is a small local restaurant at a reasonable price~
Of course, it was indeed an Italian mother Loredana who was the first to be in charge here, who specializes in local cuisine from Veneto, Italy. Looking at the wall of plaques, you know that the locals are really enthusiastic about it. Of course, its characteristic is that the dishes are delicious and not greasy, and it will even make people feel a little homesick after eating, as if they walked into mother's kitchen.
The tomato red sauce presented before the meal is quite classic, rich and flavorful but not sour, and the clear aroma should come from high-quality olive oil.
Contrast in terms of wine will hurt~~ After the taste buds are occupied by the excellent, the Italian wine flight becomes a bit dull...
Fortunately, the thick slices of black truffle (scented) just launched, soft and silky burrata cheese, salty meat slices and crispy ciabatta give dinner a good start
Bigoli Neri alla Bottarge is the legendary pasta with cuttlefish sauce~ In addition to the chewiness that meets the requirements of traditional pasta, the body is slightly improved to be smooth and not tough~~ Although the pasta has its own characteristics, the most charming It is a tomato sauce stewed with organic tomatoes. Even the shelled shrimp is stained with a strong tomato aroma, which is delicious and unburdened.
Branzino Italian lemon salt grilled fish boneless is very convenient to eat, but not as fancy as bestia. There is no crispy spinach stuffed in the belly. It tastes very home-cooked, but there is not much memory, but the performance of bell pepper Very prominent, leaving a fragrance on the cheeks after eating~
