G. Bilotta's in Brea (Orange County)

G. Bilotta's is across the street from the Brea Mall ... where the Crocodile Cafe used to be.

Same owner(s) as Bella Cucina in Anaheim Hills.

We were the only ones there at 5pm on a Saturday night. Needless to say, the service was attentive.

A small round loaf of bread was served warm, with a bottle each of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

I asked the bread/water guy what the popular dishes were. He pointed me to some pasta with shrimp and cognac, and penne with vodka sauce. I ordered the latter.

The penne was cooked to the right toothsomeness. I normally don't like pink sauces on my pasta, but this was quite good ... it had a bite, probably from the vodka. The bite was followed by a sustained heat, from red pepper, I think. (I have minimal experience with vodka sauce.) $10

Mom and dad enjoyed the prosciutto panini and the house salad with arugula. Salad was around $6 ... forgot what the sandwich cost.

If you're in the area, it's worth a try.

Aside: If you call them from the mall, I think they'll transport you to/from the restaurant in those little bicycle carriages.
