1 review about Il Boccaccio (Restaurant)

Best Italian in L.A.

Il Boccaccio serves possibly the best homemade Italian food in Los Angeles.  The food is always excellent and fresh.  One of my favorite dishes is the strangolaprete con gamberi, "choke the priest" pasta; fresh rock shimp, tomato, garlic, olive oil & basil.  My go to appetizers are the beef carpaccio and the insalata di gorgonzola.  They also have nightly specials...one to try is the pappardelle with lamb ragu.  Incredible!   No matter what you decide on, you'll always have a great meal.

I love italian food and this review made my mouth water. :) Have you been to Italy? I had the best pizza ever in Napoli, sausage and broccoli with the greatest crust known to man.

I LOVE Italian food so this is a hard question to answer. I would say that I don't think you'd be disappointed. However, if you don't love Italian, you might just think it's okay.

I usually don't get up for Italian food -- I'm more of an Asian foods fan, myself -- so an Italian restaurant has to be truly exception for me to anticipate going. I don't dislike the food, but it's alright in my opinion. Do you think for a person who doesn't get too excited about eating Italian food, they would enjoy the food here as much as you did?
