Malbec is a such a treat. EVERYTHING is delicious and homemade, and everyone is so sweet and real. I really like their raviolis, and all the soups are yummy (and vegan.) Oh, and the specials are always amazing.
There's also one in Toluca Lake that I don't think is on Citysearch here yet, which is fabulous.
Pros: Friendliness, Steak, Pastas, Overall Yumminess
