The Low Down
Where to Sit: The enclosed patio in the back is a quiet, well-apportioned place to have a meal away from the bustle of the bar and main dining room. The bar was also remodeled after the fire, and makes a cheerful place to eat if you're dining alone.
The Extras: Given the pleasant ambiance and the popularity of Italian food, the private banquet rooms upstairs are a good way to impress for both business and family events.
Parking: The restaurant offers valet service for a modest charge, but with a little patience you can often find free street parking along La Brea.
