This is the Italian restaurant currently in favor with Hollywood’s actors. It’s the story of Alfio and Bruno Bietina, two Tuscan brothers from Montignoso, Massa-Carrara. Armed with years of experience in the restaurant world, they decided to try their luck in Los Angeles. Today only Alfio is at Madeo; Bruno returned to Italy.
Dishes are well presented and the ambiance is elegant. On the menu, mozzarella di bufala, mixed seafood risotto, tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, veal chop Milanese, filet mignon with green peppercorns. The dessert menu is equally traditional. Appealing wine list with carefully chosen, interesting French, Californian and Italian bottles.
