When I think of the last few restaurants I've gone to, it's almost all been Asian! I need to break through my rut and head into an other major comfort food of mine, Italian.
But when I want to do Italian, I don't mean La Terza, I mean something like Alejos in Venice, Petrillos in San Gabriel, Giovanni's in Culver City. Real chowish places at reasonable prices,
I'm all over the place, so I'm seeking recs from all over, LA/OC. Bonus points for the joint being comfy (I find Alejos in Venice and Petrillos in San Gabriel a bit crowded and would rather do takeout there...)
