We’ve been blogging about food in LA for years and though we slowed down recently, there’s still endless eateries to discover in the vast landscape of Los Angeles. We found this small Italian joint in Koreatown by chance inside a mini mall. The menu is also simple and traditional, everything is made fresh.
Instead of a typical mom and pop place you’d expect, the interior is actually modern, minimal and nicely design. The parking lot is very small so we always have to park at the dense with apartment area of K-town side streets, which is always challenge. There’re only 5 tables inside the small space, so you have to come early or just be lucky. They do take out as well.
You can see your pizza made in front of you.
Marinara tomato, oregano, capers, anchovies. $8 Simple and very tasty. The Marinara sauce tastes on the healthier side (lighter) but it’s still flavorful. The crust is thin and soft (but not soggy), I like it.
Another basic: Spaghetti with Meatballs. Delicious! The spaghetti are handmade and the texture was great! The sauce, meatballs are all done perfectly, it’s the ultimate comfort food I’ll come back here for again and again.
Insalata Delizia spinach salad, apples, red onion, gorgonzola cheese, lemon dressing.
Siciliana: tomato, mozzarella, eggplant, sausage, bell pepper, spicy sauce.
Lamb Ragu Pappardelle. A special du jour. The pasta are handmade again and it’s so fresh with great texture. The lamb Ragu is so rich and delicious What a pity that it’s not on their regular menu.
Speck, Gorgonzola and Artichoke.
As you can see from the photo, we’ve came back a lot. The Pizza are about $10 each and Pasta at $8 (in LA!). The place reminds me of the small Italian casual joints up at SF and NYC, I’m glad I finally have a favorite go-to Italian place in LA .
