Does anyone recall a small Italian restaurant that operated years ago in a Downey strip mall at the corner of Paramount and Stewart & Gray. The restaurant was annexed to an Italian market that, like the restaurant, is no longer there.
The young owner, Claudio, was recently from Florence and his chef, Nick I think, was from Naples.
They had great atmosphere and even better food (or perhaps it was the other way around).
I know this is a complete longshot but I've always wondered what happened to these guys -- I'm sure they moved on to bigger things and it would be great to hear what they're up to now.
