This was Celestino Drago's first cafe spinoff, and its original concept - carpaccio, salad, pasta and risotto (no meat-centered entrees) - remains sound. The window-walled room on the corner of Canon and Brighton fills with sun and Beverly Hills types; don't expect a lot of elbow room or romance, but the food is reliably delicious. Try the chewy garganelli with broccoli and sausage, and spelt spaghetti dressed simply in butter, ricotta and lemon zest. The remarkable black squid ink risotto looks like asphalt and tastes like heaven.
