Pavarotti lands in Koreatown via Versailles in this restaurant/cafe that's one part Italian villa, one part patisserie and 100% charm. A hodgepodge of furniture fill the expansive, bi-level space that covers an outdoor patio, bar, dining room and upstairs lounge. Elegant tarts, petite cupcakes and rows of colorful macarons fill the glass display of desserts. An almost all Korean contingent fill up seats upstairs and on the patio. Snuggle up under heaters and with, our favorite detail, blankets over cups of Intelligentsia-brewed coffee and chestnut or sweet potato latte ($6.50). Lunch and diner diners fill up on an around-the-world smattering of Italian pastas, fried rice, Asian stir-frys; and the after-work crowd can order cocktails, sake and wine and tapas to pair. Prices may be high, but it's the price to pay for a European staycation in the middle of LA.
