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 celery, lemon, shaved Parmesan and black truffles, or focaccia from the wood-burning oven, served with a heap of prosciutto, arugula and cheese. Pastas are reliable, from gnocchi in a saffron sauce to rigatoni enhanced by Italian sausage, porcini and white truffle cream sauce. A wide variety of tasty thin-crust pizzas come out of the aforementioned oven, like the ciociara with mozzarella, Gorgonzola, porcini mushrooms and spinach. The roster of main courses is skimpy, but includes an enticing 12-ounce New York steak in a Chianti reduction, and braciola, a savory stuffed pork chop. 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.
