Orange County Italian "holes-in-the-wall"

Honeyman | Feb 19, 2004 11:39 AM

I'm going to my favorite, Garduno's in Costa Mesa, tomorrow and my mouth is watering already. This neighborhood bistro has expanded to seat maybe 40 from about half that in the past couple years, but the quality of the food is still outstanding at an inexpensive price.

I know this is based on the local neighborhood, but what are some other great Italian places not to be missed? I would also recommend Soprano's and Pasta Connection in CM, though Garduno's is my #1.
