Dine Alfresco at West Hollywood's Rivabella

Chef Ryan Scott visits Rivabella, a fine-dining Italian restaurant in West Hollywood.

West Hollywood which is known for its vibrant commercial corridor, eccentric nightlife on Sunset Strip and some delicious eats! Rivabella offers guests a delightful alfresco dining experience. Both the décor and the menu mixes rustic Italian farmhouse with a hip Hollywood vibe. The restaurant is complete with its own wine cave for those who want to feel like they are dining at an Italian vineyard.

"We are in Hollywood. You want to eat and go out and have a good time. You don't want to eat and go sleep. So the food focuses on that lighter and fresher style with big flavors," said Brent, manager.

They source ingredients from near and far. The fresh produce comes from local farmers markets and imported goods come from Italy.

Executive chef Luigi Fineo who moved from Italy 10 years ago is the guy in charge. He showed Ryan how to make a popular dish -- braised lamb ragu with sweet peaches, sharp parmesan cheese and pistachio pappardelle.

"The food that we do is upscale Italian with lots of old school dishes with a twist and a new version but that's how we blend together," said Luigi.
