On the Italian restaurant scale of Los Angeles, Osteria Mozza and Madeo are tied for first. I had the Pasta Tasting menu here (I was scared I would fill up fast, but it was perfectly portioned). The sauces for all of the pasta dishes were amazing and the quality of the olive oil was so good. I'm not a big wine drinker (because I'm a light weight) so I opted out of the wine tasting, but I did get the Moscato d'Asti dessert wine. It's sweet and slightly bubbly and makes you want to take a bubble bath.
The dessert (Crespelle di Frutti di Bosco, gelato di vaniglia) was one of my favorites. It was similar to a madeleine. Crispy outside and soft on the inside. This has to be the cheapest tasting menu I've ever done ($69). I will definitely be coming back here.
