THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Fornaretta Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Spaghetti and meatballs may no longer be trendy, but you’ll find yuppies digging into it at this Old Pasadena restaurant. The unpretentious storefront dining room features terra-cotta tile floors, rust-and-gold-colored walls, green banquettes and earth-toned tablecloths covered with butcher paper. Most of the pastas, pizzas and house specialties are topped with a crimson-hued tomato sauce bursting with fresh flavors. Also recommended: the spaghetti topped with garlicky breadcrumbs, saffron and anchovies.
