Now Open: WeHo's RivaBella Debuts Tonight + Menu

Angelini's nidi di rondine
RivaBella, the collab between Innovative Dining Group (Sushi Roku, Boa, etc.) and Gino Angeleni (Angelini Osteria) throws open the doors tonight in the former Hamburger Hamlet on Sunset Boulevard. The pairing seems somewhat unlikely considering IDG's other attempt at Italian food, Soleto, isn't worth its rock-hard meatballs. But having Angelini's saffron tagliatelle with prosciutto ragu, suqid ink crab ravioli, and the ever popular lasagna Nonna Elvira should make it more worthwhile. The space is huge and Tuscan-themed - a wine "cave" for private events, cobblestone flooring, stone archways, leafy trellises - but still has that slickness IDG is known for. Dinner starts tonight with lunch added tomorrow. Check out the very large menu below (9201 Sunset Blvd.; 310-278-2060).
