Roastbeef's Reviews
 
The A1 Autostrada was the first Italian motorway that connected Milan with Naples via Bologna, Florence and Rome and notably reflects Danilo Terribili's concept of serving classic Italian dishes from all regions. A1 Cucina Italiana introduces urban Los Angeles to the full range of flavors found all over Italy. The cuisine is simple and rustic with a few unusual, although authentically Italian ingredients to add a contemporary and somewhat unexpected spin.<br /><br></br><br />Chef Fredy Escobar is committed to use the freshest and the most authentic ingredients resulting in lively, flavorful food. The pizzas are roman style. Thin crust with ingredients like Swiss chard, Calabrian hot peppers, mozzarella di bufala, guanciale, artichokes, prosciutto and home made Italian sausage.<br></br><br />Equally a neighborhood and destination eatery, A1 intends to be both.

"We went because the reviews on Opentable were so strong - more than 4-star is rare. Service was slow at first - our cocktails took an age. 4 of us shared 3 appetizers. The calamari fritti was excellent, the margharita pizza flabby, the buratta also not as solid as it should be. Pasta main courses all tasty. Best thing was the wine - Chianti Classico was a treat."
