I just published my review of Culina Modern Italian restaurant, which recently opened at the Four Seasons at Beverly Hills with an impressive décor. Now listen carefully to what Chef Victor Casanova says during my exclusive interview, and you will learn the secret of his tasty spaghetti that I just enjoyed.


The noise you hear in the background of the video is not a faulty microphone, but what the chef has to endure when he makes pasta twice a day for Culina’s satisfied diners. I also tried many more items on his menu, and particularly appreciated his wheat crust margherita pizza (see photos below).
