It's easy to miss Speranza on Hyperion Ave. in Silver Lake -- it looks a lot like a house covered in tarps. But pull back the tarps and you'll find a patio hideaway, leafy and cozy and shabby-romantic. The food here is much like what you'd cook at home if you were throwing together something easy and Italian, though the handmade pastas might make the word "easy" a stretch. Lasagna, grilled fish, caprese, tiramisu -- all the classics are represented.
