Did you know that the Sea Urichin or Riccio Di Mare has been in the italian cooking tradition for the logest time? The sourthern coasts are full of it and in spite of their spikes Italians manage to eat them !!

There's nothing like a soup when is kind of chilly out. I mean chilly for a Californian, in New York or in Milan they would think we are "pazzi da legare " which mean crazy as hell !!! Still, we are what we eat....

Colori takes reservation and I would highly recommend getting one since it can get quite busy any of their night. The best parts about Colori is their free corkage fee and comfort Italian cuisine. Apparently, some of my friends experienced some horrific dining experiences in the past at Colori. Luckily, I did not experience any of that nonsense. Our waiter was friendly and quirky with his humor. He managed to check on us couple times throughout the meal even on a busy night. Here are some of their rules: -One bottle/every two people in your party -$2 split charge -No more than 3 cards for tables of 4-6; No more than 4 cards for table of 6 or more -$1/per person for cake cutting fee My take on my dinner: Calamari (appetizer): Grilled and Buttery, HIT. This was a special for the night, bring it back! House's recipe Lasagna: Thickly layered and fully of flavors. Perfect meaty Lasagna! Overall, the food here has quality with simple touches and burst of flavors. I'm a fan, can't wait to come back for some more delicious pasta, nom. Parking: nearby meter or paid lot

Service and food is just awesome. We had a party of 9 and ate just about everything on the menu. Calamari is awesome, ravioli, black cod, seafood soup, tiramisu... All great. And bring your own wine. That made it very personal for us as well.

Small, nondescript restaurant that screams local, hidden gem. Limited beverage menu but seems like you can bring your own bottle of wine if you want. The usual suspects in terms of Italian fare, so I ordered the fettuccine with salmon and zucchini in curry sauce. Large portion is the norm here, so plan accordingly. The curry was satisfyingly spicy with hints of indian herbs, which actually was very delicious. Coupled with al dente pasta and nice, flaky salmon, the dish surprised me for being quite good. Lots of unique specials available so it goes on my "return" list.

I really want to give Colori Kitchen at least a 4 star rating but my entree was so disappointing that I just can't. I will be back again eventually though so hopefully I enjoy my food more on my next visit. First of all, I love the BYOB with no corkage fee. The service was great. I love their bread and also most of the dishes we had, including the mushroom risotto and the lasagna. I especially loved the salad that was on their specials menu. I could eat 5 plates of that salad and be happy. It all goes wrong with my Linguine alla Vongole or Linguini with Clams came out. The dish was crazy salty to the point where I could barely eat it. I ended up splitting the dishes around the table with the rest of the table and stole my boyfriend's mushroom risotto. Several of the clams had a lot of sand in them too so I was unpleasantly surprised after chewing into them. Parking is tough since it's DTLA. You may get lucky and find street parking. Otherwise, I would just suck it up and pay $5+ to park at one of the downtown lots.

We came in for a late dinner on Saturday night and there were no wait. We shared the steak calamari and the spaghetti carbonara with chicken added. The calamari was absolutely delicious! It was tender, buttery and delicate. The sauce was so amazing! I'd pass on the spaghetti carbonara. The pasta was a tad overcooked and chicken was really dry. I wish they gave more sauce. I loved the dip that came with the complimentary bread. It was so good! They do not serve any alcohol but it's BYOB with NO corkage fee. Metered parking and a couple small lots.

They open at 6 PM and if you are going on Friday or Saturday you are going to want to make a reservation in advance. This restaurant has a charm all its own from decor to service and the food is delizioso!!! They do not sell beer or wine but you can bring your own or order from a delivery service with no corkage fee. A special place to take special people; family, friends and people you love.
