I'm looking for an Italian/Italian American joint (I use that word purposefully) in L.A. that is very inexpensive, popular and serves fairly decent grub. Not looking for 4 star cuisine here.
One particular goal is to make someone happy. This person's favorite gnocchi is Roma D'Italia's gnocchi sauce with a tomato sauce that has some cream added, so it's almost alfredo tasting, but not as cheesy. Unfortunately, Italian is not my forte so I blanked when I heard this request. BTW, Roma D'Italia is a popoular Italian American joint in Tustin (OC). Their gnocchi is about $11 and I think we want to spend around $11-$15 per entree.
We'll also go to Il Cono for dessert. Haven't yet tried their gelato.
Thanks for your help.
