I love this clubby authentic Italian restaurant on Beverly Blvd. and I think Madeo is easily the best spot for Italian food in all of Los Angeles. Madeo has been owned and operated by the same family for generations and on any given night, you will be greeted warmly by the current owner and his incredibly sweet father. The flavors at Madeo are clean and simple and delicious and the wine list is fantastic. Considered a power scene by some, Madeo is actually very relaxed and welcoming and is a great restaurant to go to celebrate a happy occasion, or just to celebrate a Wednesday night.

If you miss New York, and love old school , clubby and traditional, phenomenal food, Madeo is your place. In the last few years, it's paparazzi quotient has increased to the dismay of the regulars but it does not detract from the food. It could be the best spaghetti bolognese on earth. At Madeo, you are going to get classic italian: carpaccio, pasta, pizza, milanese and bistecca, beautiful bronzino. Mr. Madeo still running the show with the help of his children; the familly hails from the Forte di Marmi area in Italy (not much different than coastal LA!) and has a sister restaurant there called Madai. They are wonderful people who created an atmosphere that is quintessential buzz, tradition, people watching,and most importantly, FOOD.
