Anotonio Mure, late of Piccolo in Venice and Santa Monica's La Botte, opened the simple, rustic Il Carpaccio for yet another beach nabe. Known for his delicious pastas and a very sincere Italian charm, Mure brings what these people want to the table: Word on the street is the place was packed from day one. What, is there no good food in the Palisades? From Miss Irene's Critic's Notebook: "Never mind that the place is a bit bare-bones, the tables wobbly and the lights tend to flicker. Muré is behind the stoves, furiously cooking up dishes familiar from his first two restaurants." That would be agnolotti stuffed with beef and cabbage, tagliatelle with wild rabbit ragu, artichoke salad with celery. Pizza, too.
