Rao’s is the Hollywood location of the classic NYC Italian restaurant, which is famous for being one of the hardest tables to get in the city. In LA, you can get a reservation pretty easily, and it’s a solid option for a crowd-pleasing dinner in the area. The menu isn’t going to blow you away, but it’s stocked with every red sauce classic imaginable, and that’s what you need when you’re trying to cater to a group of picky eaters. Get the meatballs.
