Locanda Veneta, Los Angeles

I was a bit unsettled by the quiet atmosphere at Locanda Veneta at first — we were one of the few booths taken for the evening. What we realized very quickly, however, was that we hit a major foodie jackpot.

My mom had one of the specials of the day for an appetizer — the Pureed Asparagus Soup, free of cream *luckily because neither of could have done it in that case. The soup was creamy and rich without having to have cream base — I was impressed. I had the Chicken and Corn soup made with fresh venetian corn which was superb.

For an entree, my mother had been eyeing down this one dish on Menupages all week and decided on getting it — she got the Pappardelle Al Filetto E Funghetti — Homemade large fettuccine with strips of beef filet, wild mushrooms, and a marsala sauce. SO rich, SO delicious absolutely to die for dish. I had the Linguine Al Frutti Di Mare– Homemade linguine pasta with Scallops, Lobster Tails, Shrimp, and Clams in a wonderful red sauce.

To boot, apparently this is the secret Italian hidden gem restaurant for crazy hot celebs, aka Conan and Jess Biel.
