Weekend Review: Piccolo

Ravioli del Plin: Fontina Ravioli with Parmesan Truffle Sauce

I wanted to try out one more restaurant before DineLA ended, so I treated my boyfriend to dinner at Piccolo last weekend. It's located in a slightly sketchy area of Venice, CA, but once we stepped inside it immediately reminded us of time we spent in Venice, Italy. Everything about our experience was authentic Italian - from the servers to the wine and food. Chef Bobo even included a fourth course, gratis, so that we could enjoy a traditional pasta course between our Antipasti and Secondi. Complimentary ravioli with truffles? We'll definitely be coming back.
