Best Italian in LA?

OliverB | Aug 20, 2013 06:31 AM

I usually just go to Dan Tana's or Original Micelli's (mostly for the ambiance!) but I'm looking for some nicer/fancier places to take my family while in town with more contemporary menus.

I was thinking of the following and would greatly appreciate your feedback and rankings of these, or alternate suggestions:

- Il Piccolino
- Madeo
- Angelini Osteria
- La Botte

I should also note that my sister has celiac disease (not just gluten intolerance) and therefore we need a restaurant that will be able to accommodate her. I imagine that any of the top kitchens in LA should be okay, right?

Anyhow, I'd greatly appreciate your feedback from the list above and please let me know if I should consider any other choices as well.


PS - I hope we won't have problems getting last minute dinner reservations for this coming Thursday and next Tuesday evening at the above places.
