Best Italian (money no object) in L.A. area for a VERY picky eater

I'll second that about Marino's. Great Neopolitan food. A bit heavy but AWESOME experience eating there every time I go...

Noir Food and Wine in Pasadena

Peeps, go check this place out. Arguably the best wine list in Pasadena, paired with some phenomenal small plates that will satisfy the hungriest and the most discerning. VERY SATISFYING and REASONABLE $$$. -- A GREAT FIND!

Sushi in Pasadena?

Here's another vote for Sushi of Naples. Misleading name, really solid sushi. This coming from someone who will drive across town to go to Asanebo, Nozawa or Urasawa. I've been to all the best places, including Masa in NYC and I have no problem eating anytime at Sushi of Naples. Naoya-san is busy behind the counter but knows me well enough to Omakase me without asking any time I step in the joint. They'll hold your own Sake bottle indefinitely and they serve Shochu, which is huge in my book. And finally and most importantly the sushi quality is consistent, really good quality, and as an added bonus REASONABLY PRICED...
