Italian Dinner-Los Angeles (Decisions?)

I think you are right on, but don't really consider Chi Spacca Italian. I agree it's my current favorite place in LA right now.

Italian Dinner-Los Angeles (Decisions?)

Have not been to Bestia but here it is very good. AO is outstanding a bit small. Drago is a nice room and good food but its a Drago (solid but not spectacular by any stretch).

Parking is easy. There is a park with free parking a block away on Barrington.

L.A. Dish of the Month, August 2014: COCKTAILS and Bar Food

Spago has a nice bar menu that is very reasonable (for Spago). You can also get the full menu in the bar. In addition, there are two tables that are considered "in the bar" that are actually right on the patio and give you pretty much the patio experience.

Also, Dan Tana's serves 1/2 orders of their dishes at the bar and some of their dishes (steak and peppers) are really large.

Any great food with ambience in Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Van Nuys or North Hollywood?

Mistral is very good. I like Il Tiramisu on Ventura and Woodman for business lunches. Nice Italian. Quiet.

Bar Toscana, not half bad. Pretty good perhaps.

It's really good and definitely up your alley.

chinese in beverly hills?

Shanghai Grill. No better than Panda Express with worse service. Too bad. Probably ate there over 100 times since I was a kid. Not a huge Xian fan but it and Joss are much better. Also, although I was disappointed in Newport Seafood (due in most part to enormous expectations) it too is 100 times better than Shanghai. Shanghai sucks.

Really? I have been going there since the 70s and fondly recall Eddie and his wife. However the past few years I have found the food to be just above awful.

I thought it was a tad more $$. Although I was not that impressed with Newport, it is better than Xian.

There are not a lot of choices. Xian and Joss probably the best bet Shanghi Grill is awful. Others are higher.

Place serving entrees with good chicken?

Both The Grill and Sotto do very good brick chicken. Pollo a la Brasas is good to go. The Brentwood has very good fried chicken.

Then that might be high. Il Piccolino is not that high.

They serve a full bar, but no place to just sit for drinks. They serve a good sized drink.

I believe Eddy and Silvio are still partners. Dont remember the last time I saw Eddy. Hope he is well. I too first me him (and his wife) at Le Dome. As I recall, Il Picollino is more Italian and (as you say) Le Dome was High Continental. Le Dome was more formal than Il Picollino.

Good takeout/fast food Koreatown/Mid-Wilshire

Pollo a la Brasa is really good Peruvian Roasted Chicken right on your way. Street parking is easy.

Prices are comparable to most higher end Italian on the west side. Think Capo, Angelini Osteria or E baldi. Not cheap, but food is great. I have always had exceptional service.
