Great Italian in Hollywood?

someone told me about some authentic Italian restaurant around the area of Hollywood Blvd and Wilcox or Wilton?? It is supposed to be really good and known for their ravioli...is that even possible in Hollywood?! What's it called? Who's been there? Tell me what you know!

try the relatively new restaurant by katsu-ya on 3rd just east of la cienega...more specifically between la cienega and orlando...south side of the street. i would tell you the name but i can't spell it.

casual, interesting date place w/ potential for a quiet walk afterward

there a really great little place in venice...it's on Dudley...i think it used to be called 5 Dudley not sure of the name now. it's a little italian place, very authentic, no reservations are taken. when you're done you're right there at the beach. does anyone know the name

Josie or Grace

I didn't mean to lead anyone in the wrong direction with my use of "homey"...I find homey to be comforting, warm, reminding me of my home or childhood home which I do think of when I'm at Josie. It's not like I said homely and if I wanted to say mom and pop (which can be quite fantastic if appropriate) I would have. Clearly Snob...I mean Vinosnob...and I are from very different places

Josie or Grace

both are great choices but I think Grace by a nose. I think the food is a bit better and it's more elegant. I find Josie homey, which is nice but for this dinner elegant sounds like a more apt option. And as many wise Chowhounds have already pointed out - do NOT miss those donuts!

Where can I take my foodie fling visiting from SF for a romantic gourmet dinner?

help choosing a restaurant

I love Jar, but depending on the night it could be loud. What about Grace? Also, not to offend those that would never eat at a hotel, but The Bel Air Hotel has great food, and the room is SO lovely!

check out Cafe Delfini in Santa Monica - West Channel off PCH. Great food, romantic, and cozy. Small location so call quick for a reservation. Waiters barely speak english so the place seems really authentic.

sweet lady jane- incredibly rude!

I an MAD for the cherry pie! I actually have always thought that her pies were far superior to her cakes. I'm also quite fond of the lemon meringue pie
