LA VENDETTA RESTAURANT

The owners of La Vendetta Bar & Grill clearly invested heavily to remodel the old Rainbo Café, creating one of the best-looking restaurants to open on Hollywood Boulevard in years. Whether you’re hanging out at the large bar or enjoying the comfy leather chairs, the ambiance is classy and inviting.

This is the kind of upscale-casual restaurant Hollywood has been lacking. We hope they work out the glitches, and we encountered several on a recent Saturday night. Our entrees took an hour reaching our table, and some were ice cold while others were overcooked. Baked gnocchi were mushy, and the meatballs had an off-putting texture.

On the plus side, Chicken livornese, baked with onion, capers, olives and tomato sauce, had just the right tangy blend of flavors and came with a side of fresh pasta. Pollo mauro, with mushrooms, shallots, balsamic vinaigrette and demi-glace, and veal parmigiana were also good.

We hope if we give La Vendetta a second chance we won’t be disappointed.
