Another fantastic meal at LPYes it is true the tables are a little small and a little close together. But the food and service are excellent. Every one of our party had something different and was extremely happy with their choices. Bread and water service were good, waiters pleasantly engaged. Wine list sort of intimidating and just a little expensive but with great choices throughout. Red sauces dominate but are not heavy in style. All seafood extremely fresh and well-prepared. Tiramisu is light and fluffy. Will absolutely return on future trips to the LA Westside.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent excellenceWe love this restaurant. The only time it ever let us down was 14 February, when they greedily squeezed in way too many tables in order to make a killing at the expense of their reputation. Otherwise, every time, the food is as good as it gets, and the service professional. assured, and charming. This time we both started with a special of the day: grilled squid - perfectly cooked. I then had the trusty veal, with delicious chopped tomato and spinach. My wife had the prawns - light and succulent. The Umbrian white wine was the best: $95, but worth every cent. We had no room for dessert.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE REAL DEALI have enjoyed this tucked away gem over 1/2 dozen times and have had enough time to experiment with their menu, and it is all terrific. They do veal with perfection. Their pastas are clearly a giant step above most others and I am amazed at the depth of their menu,considering how small of a kitchen they have. It is clearly a slice of Italy on the Westside and I love it!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceIt was our first time in this small quaint place. The food, wine, and service was exceptional.
