My mother in law has asked me to find a couple good restaurants for some friends who are flying from South Carolina to Southeast Asia via LAX in a few weeks. They will be here for a couple nights.
I've compiled the usual list -- Panns, Shula's, Houston's, Reed's. However, mother in law specifically requests a "good Italian restaurant". I know there are good places, say, in Santa Monica, but I'm looking for CHowish Italian restaurant no more than a cab ride from LAX.
