Time Out says

Abbreviatorily named after the space’s previous tenant, the Highland Park Post Office, Hippo is a full-service neighborhood Italian restaurant from the same Mozza-partnered crew behind adjoining Triple Beam Pizza. Indoor diners are likely to get an earful of early 2010s alt and indie rock as they dine on starters, pasta and wood-grilled proteins alongside well-made cocktails or a glass of wine from its small, curated selection of sparkling, white, orange, rosé and red wines. Although most of its pastas are made in house, Hippo also features pasta from nearby Semolina Artisanal Pasta in Pasadena. Come dessert, there’s scoops of Silverton’s famous “Nancy’s Fancy” gelato, as well as a seasonal fruit-topped custard brioche tart and a passable Basque cheesecake.
