The search for decent Italian food in the city of angels can be a frustrating, protracted one, so when eaters do find a gem, they tend to keep it a closely guarded secret. This one is out though: The food is solid, and the spacious, convivial dining space is the perfect backdrop for a soireé with close friends. -Will Budiaman
