Restaurant pick of the week

Donetto – this swanky new Italian spot is in the Westside. Perfect for a romantic evening. Get the beef tartar to start. Plus, they have great cocktails and even some on tap. I loved the Negroni on tap. Pastas are terrific. Get the truffle ravioli or the Mezzaluna with sun dried tomato.
