Parioli's sweeping outdoor patio fittingly showcases the restaurant's extensive array of dishes, prepared with sun-soaked Southern California produce and extravirgin olive oil. The menu eases visitors into breezy Italian bliss reminiscent of hang-gliding with Joe Pesci, with lunch appetizers including beef carpaccio with capers and citrus ($11) and dinner starters such as grilled artichokes basking in lemon ($10). A Herculean wine list escorts the succulent range of dinner entrees, led by a whole sea bass cloaked in herbs and lemon ($32) and lobster-and-clam pappardelle, resplendently draped in a hearty cream sauce ($24). Lunchtime diners can feast on a full range of pastas and salads supplemented by a selection of paninis, whose crusty golden confines house such savory fillings as prosciutto and mozzarella ($8).

Parioli Italian Bistro

No matter where you sit at Parioli Italian Bistro, you’ll be treated to excellent Italian food and romantic lighting. From the cozy outdoor patio lit with hanging strings of lights, guests order rack of lamb or housemade lobster ravioli. Inside the dining room, a fire crackles and candles flicker on tables dressed in white cloths. When not savoring a plate of steamed mussels or gnocchi, guests can learn the secrets behind the tantalizing dishes during cooking classes, which treat students to a multi-course meal with wine, just like Home Ec class in school.

Fun experience! Delicious pasta. Some hands-on time. Even some sips of vino. Would be a great group event with friends.

This "class" was more like a demonstration. The food was amazing though.
