Maccheroni Republic Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Jean-Louis De Mori (The 3rd Stop) and executive chef Antonio Tommasi are behind Maccheroni Republic in downtown L.A. It's located along the Broadway Theater District, an area that's ripe for revitalization. The restaurant has a homey, rustic feel ---- you'll find no tablecloths or cloth napkins here. On the side of Maccheroni Republic, adjacent to a quiet alley, is a shaded patio lined with olive trees. During the day there's a business lunch vibe, but at night the tables are packed with locals out for good food at a good value. The menu is simple, straightforward and split into appetizers, soups, salads and homemade pastas. Your server will also bring around a chalkboard listing desserts and daily specials, like a fennel and orange salad with organic salmon scallopine. Start with Polpettine di Gamberi (crispy pan-fried shrimp cakes served with caramelized onions) before selecting from more than a dozen pasta options. There's also an affordable list of wines.
