It's such a lovely location, right inside Fred Segal's leafy exterior. But the restaurant's presentation isn't nearly as good as their food! The food's culture is predominantly Italian, but the menu is a combination of foods from many places around Europe.
It was so good! I (Carolyn) always gets the same thing. I try to be as adventurous as I can with food, I'm trying to break my "eat the same thing every time you go to a restaurant' habit" but with Mauro's it's absolutely impossible to stray from Fred's Pasta. It's penne paste in a pink sauce with chicken breast and peas.
Okay so fine, maybe I try to eat around the peas, which can be a pretty laborious job for somebody who just wants to devour the whole plate, dish included.
Alexa got Spaghetti Pomodoro. The sauce was smooth and creamy, just the way is always is and should be. The pasta was cooked to perfection, and to top it off, there was just a little sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
After we finished eating, we walked down to Sweet Lady Jane & Alfreds Coffee and Kitchen, but that's another story!
Until next time,
xx Alexa and Carolyn
