La Parolaccia Osteria Italiana Restaurant Review

: An Inland Empire edition of a Long Beach favorite, this shopping- and theater-convenient osteria is decked out with colorful memorabilia from the worlds of Italian sports to sports cars. Begin with a carpaccio topped with arugula and melted pecorino cheese or fried risotto balls stuffed with beef, peas and porcini mushrooms. Pastas are reliable, from gnocchi in a brandy tomato cream sauce to rigatoni enhanced by crumbled sausage and pancetta. A wide variety of tasty thin-crust pizzas comes out of the oven, like the tricolore with mozzarella, Gorgonzola, roasted cherry tomatoes and basil pesto. The roster of main courses is skimpy, but includes a straightforward take on veal scaloppini and oven-baked chicken breast rolled with Provolone and asparagus. The wine list is small yet it presents intriguing Italian grape varietals in the by-the-glass selection. The original location is at 2945 E. Broadway, Long Beach, 562-438-1235.
