LA Weekly's Description

Gnocchi (pronounced NYO-kee) are easy to make. Good gnocchi are notoriously difficult. A sous chef we know was once in charge of the gnocchi at a well-known restaurant, and his afternoons were either made or destroyed by the owner’s reaction to the spoonful he offered her every day at precisely 4:30. His gnocchi made it onto the menu only about two days out of five. Madeo, the understated agents’ hangout a few blocks from Cedars-Sinai, resembles a businessmen’s restaurant in one of the lesser quarters of Rome, from its shiny, vaguely disco-era decor to its bunker-like location a few steps below the street. The blistery pizza is fine, and the smoky, fire-roasted veal is renowned. And you can’t miss with the gnocchi — luscious, featherweight clouds of pure potato flavor, dressed with pesto, tomato sauce with basil, or a slightly gooey tincture of Gorgonzola — which may be among the best in Los Angeles.

    I discovered this place through a good buddy of mine, and I've grown to love this place. It's so good. You never know who you're going to see here. I still get star struck. It all comes down to food, though....atmosphere - smatmosphere. It's just very, very good food.

    Service is great. The food is delicious. I like to get pasta. Once in awhile I might order a lamb chop or something like that, but I’m a pasta eater where Italian food is concerned. I just get it with marinara sauce. That’s it. I put some hot pepper seed on it and just gobble it down.

    This is solid, authentic Italian food made and served the right way, by the right people. The pizza is incredible, as are most other items on the menu. I usually have a pizza, veal milanese and risotto. This with a nice glass of wine, followed by an espresso and dessert, and you are good to go! I also must say something about the people who run the place...never will you meet... More >>
