Italian Restaurant
“One of my favorite classy casual pasta spots in LA. The cavatelli may be one of my favorite dishes in LA in the $$ range. All the dishes here are great! The salads, calamari, pizzas, and pastas are all fantastic. Make sure to make a reservation as the wait for walk ins can be long. There is also a wine store and bar in the back so if you are waiting its a great place to have some wine and maybe even purchase a bottle. ”

Café
“Most Dependable Super Close Breakfast/Lunch Option: Fratelli’s (6 min walk) -- Open every day, has friendly owners, and lots of healthy and unhealthy options for an early meal.
