The best restaurant in Hollywood right now is the seven-month-old Italian Osteria Mamma, says lil mikey.
The fresh pastas are worth many a return visit. "It’s very fresh and handmade. The tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce was piping hot, with noodles that had that scrumptious fresh texture," says lil mikey.
Another winner is the quatro stagioni pizza, with an obviously fresh, thin crust. There are four quadrants: a ham quadrant, a black olive quadrant, an artichoke heart quadrant, and a mushroom quadrant. It's perfect to share between two people. And the mushrooms had a deep, rich flavor, says lil mikey.
