Viale dei Romani is the Italian talk of the town in West Hollywood. The buzzy Casey Lane spot has lots to enjoy on the menu, but perhaps nothing is as prominent in diners minds than the insanely-layered lasagna.

There may be no more iconic lasagna in all of Los Angeles than Angelini Osteria’s lasagna verde omaggio nonna Elvira. Housemade spinach pasta is layered with beef and veal ragu, béchamel, and parmigiana reggiano. The omission of ricotta keeps the dish surprisingly light, while the signature topping of fried spinach leaves adds a level of textural interplay that all other lasagnas should aspire to attain.

It’s hard to imagine a more popular lasagna right now than the one at Nightshade, Mei Lin’s Asian-leaning Arts District restaurant. The layers are filled to with tofu and spices to resemble a mapo tofu in both texture and taste, but eating the thing inside the decadent dining room, formerly a warehouse, is purely unique to Los Angeles.

Sugarfish co-founder Lele Massimini reformatted Sugarfish’s affordable model to pasta, with sub $20 prices on all of its dishes.

From easy-drinking cocktails to those famous rice balls, Antonia Lofaso’s Venice mainstay offers many tasty things within its brick-walled confines. The lasagna is one of them, thanks to layers on layers of Italian sausage, meat sauce, and parmesan.

El Segundo is buzzing about Jame Enoteca, the corner strip mall pasta spot that’s dedicated to making things by hand. The rustic touch works well for rotating lasagnas like their occasional mushroom option that’s served in a skillet.
