A genuine Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. Ottavio Palmeri’s cuisine, of Sicilian origin, is the authentic Italian cuisine with dishes from many regions of Italy, ranging from fish to meat. The stewed oxtail is a successful attempt to give voice to a kitchen of rurality that’s unexpected in Los Angeles. The same is true of fresh pastas declined in different versions all of good workmanship: above all we appreicated the one with duck sauce. Excellent selection of wines and good service that deviates from the American canons.
