This Christmas Eve, Cecconi's in West Hollywood is serving an Italian classic for dine-in or takeaway. The stand out is chef Andrea Cavaliere's handmade timpano, a massive family-sized dough crust stuffed with meatballs and rigatoni Bolognese. You might recognize the signature dome-shaped dish from Stanley Tucci's film Big Night. Due to the popularity of the timpano, guests must reserve 48 hours in advance.
