Pasta Carbonara - Spaghetti with pancetta, reggiano, egg yolk and parsley

I firmly believe that, with a few exceptions, all Italian restaurants are the same.

Which is why we love them.

It’s nice to know that when we have a craving for pasta or pizza, we’re gonna get what we expect.

We don’t need the Italian wheel reinvented.

The problem lies with us bloggers. What the hell can we say about these places? There’s just nothing to write about. Unless the place is dreadful. Usually it’s not.

I blogged about Della Terra two years ago. I’ve noticed I’ve been doing that a lot lately.

Repeating restaurants.

That’s how I know I’ve lived in LA too long. Maybe it’s time to move on to bigger and better cities jam packed with new foodie treasures to explore.


Always get a pizza and the pasta servings are very generous!

The salmon was a bit fishy, I wouldn’t order again.

Lamb chops were excellent, recomended for a meat course.

Service is friendly and the place never seems to be too crowded.
