Tarnino restorante bar San Pedro - LA

Introduction In the heart of Westwood Blvd at 1043 and around the corner from Westwood Village and 2 blocks from the Geffen Theatre
Ambience Has the atmosphere of a quality Roman restaurant.

Service A
s Italian as the decor
Food Indifferent. The menu is in Italian and English. For "Gli Antipasti Caldi" I had the Mussels and clams in a fresh tomato sauce. Quite tasty small mussels dominated by the peppery tomato soup they floated in. The special papparadelles with duck, served as an appetizer was excellent

Le Insalate undistiguished, the carciofi - artichoke with aged peccorino cheese just OK and the extremely ordinary
The Veal shank with saffron risotto was really Osso Bucco but there does not seem to be any difference to the waiter- also nothing special whilst the breaded rack of veal turned out to be one large, beaten veal chop on the bone and yearling beef at that. not improved by the covering of small tomatoes and argulla lettuce. Perhaps lucky we were running too late for dessert!
Wine Premium Cab/sav by the glass very good

Price around US$50/head + gratuity without wine,dessert or coffee

Comments I'd try somewhere else for better food and less pretentious

Score: 13/20
