Twirls of fettuccini and dollops of tender gnocchi reflect culinary traditions that trace back to 1961, when Adolfo and Maria Mirra opened Mirra’s Place. Their legacy continues with a robust Italian menu that features classics such as veal piccata, chicken parmesan, and pastas composed of white, wheat, or spelt flour. Red and white wines from Italy and California, including a signature house blend, complement every dish. Stools at a small wooden bar offer a view of the candy-coloured dining room, in which baby blue and salmon pink walls, intricate white crown moulding, and gold chandeliers evoke a baroque vibe where Mozart might appear and sing a rondo at any moment.
