went to pastina the other day, had the veal parmigiania, which was very good in an old-fashioned, sort of way. and had the tiramisu again, which was actually very good this time (the last time i tried to the dessert was way too boozy). this time it was near perfect. have yet to try the giant lobsters. i think it's definitley the best dining in the westwood/ucla area. but it probably won't be worth the drive for people from the valley or oc.
