Every year about 20 of us gather on Christmas Eve for dinner. We used to go to Barones in Toluca Lake because it had a great private room, the cheese pizza and salads were great and the price was fair. Since it's closing 3 years ago, we've gone to Louise's Trattoria in Los Feliz (enough said there). I'm looking for a good replacement, but have come up empty.
For various reasons Micellis on Chauenga and Tony Bella Vista on Magnolia are out. Something in the Hollwood, Burbank, Silver Lake area prefered.
