Looking for a little Italian in Culver City last night - a fairly gritty area West of the 405 and we gave Caffe Roberto another try (had a really wonderful lunch there a long time ago). The place while still Italian had a heavy Brazilian feel to it because it had been a Brazilian soccer haven - there is a Brazilian grocery store to the north of the restaurant which used to be an Italian grocery store. Atmosphere and mood - bistro-y - food good to quite good. Caesar salad and Mme ZoeZ, formely known as Mme Zoe and I split a Lasagna and it was plenty for a split. Our friends split a mushroom and chicken risotto which everyone said was very tasty.
Good place for a quick snack.
Jefferson Blvd west of the 405,
