My daughter is turning 17-years-old tomorrow night. Her favorite food is Italian (pasta, pizza, etc). She asked for me to find a place in Hollywood.
Now, I know Miceli's (on La Brea) atmosphere sounds fun, but I read the messg. boards here, and someone referred to it as "edible." That scared me away.
My favorite place for Italian is Angelini Osteria. But that's not really the pizza sort of place my daughter is looking for, and will be too expensive for our large party, anyway.
If only Martoni's on Cahuenga was still around. That's the sort of place I'm looking for. Great food, red booths and hanging Chianti bottles...fun atmosphere - a place that makes you feel special the moment you walk in.
Am I asking too much? If so, is there anything sort of close?
Thank you in advance. I always know I can count on the Chowhound people.
