Where did this Valley relish — and I’m calling that because it d...

Happiness is a neighborhood Italian restaurant (just ask Billy Joel) that you can always count on to provide familiar fare, fresh ingredients and pizza dough that brings back memories of growing up Jewish in an Italian neighborhood where your nose remembers the aromas of yesteryear. As you step into Milano’s Pizza & Italian Restaurant in Hemet, you...

Grinder, hoagie, hero, sub, torpedo. The name differs based on where you’re eating it. In Los Angeles, to most, it’s an Italian sub. Regardless of what you call it, a split roll stuffed with cured meats and cheese is generally a good idea. Adding hot peppers, olive oil and vinegar is an even better idea.

It’s hard to believe that a member of Italy’s royal family has become an icon of the LA street food scene. In January, Vice released a mini documentary on Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy (47) and his pasta food truck, appropriately named after his own aristocratic title, “The Prince of Venice.” “You can be a policeman, a prince, a banker or whatever, b...

Mama Mia, a landmark Italian restaurant in Downtown Hollywood, may be more than 25 years old, but everything about it, with the exception of the name, is brand-new.
