UOVO | Studio City

UOVO in Studio City at the Sportsman Lodge offers Italian dishes of character, with pasta flown in from Bologna, Italy

When Beth told me that she was moving to Northern California, I was all sorts of sad – but excited for her new adventure. For our last dinner (for the time being) I suggested we meet at UOVO in Studio City. I’d visited their location in Marina de Rey and loved it. Soon, a date was set.

After hug and how are you’s, it was time to order. In looking at the choices, we settled on ordering from the tasting menu.

Now, I present our version of…


Battta di carne – modified with the YELLOWTAIL CRUDO
(Japanese Yellowtail with red Fresno chili pepper and micro-arugula dressed with olive oil, lemon. blood orange)

(Original “Bolognese” recipe with beef, pork and without cheese, milk or cream.)

(Crema di Parmigiano – Handmade meat tortellini (contains pork) in a cream of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, inspired by “Antica Osteria del Mirasole”)

(Handmade tonnarelli in a sauce with exclusively imported tomatoes from Basilicata, Pecorino Romano DOP, imported Italian guanciale (pork), red chili pepper)

TIRAMISU AL CUECHIAIO (shared in one cup)
(Tiramisu’ al cucchiaio – Our version of tiramisu’ inspired by our favorite at Felice a Testaccio in Rome contains hazelnut)

The courses offered enough food to enjoy the absolute pleasure of tactile taste and sensation from the freshness of the dishes – without feeling uncomfortably stuffed. The taste profile was outstanding, with the highlights for me being the tortellini and the ragu.

Overall, Uovo has a great pasta tasting menu. For immediate seating, I’d say go between 4 -6pm, before the line at the Sherman Oaks one gets stupid busy. If I needed to give my preferred location, I would suggest the Marina Del Rey location, as it overlooks the Pacific Ocean. In any case, if you’re looking for a fast casual outstanding pasta place with a straightforward menu, you can’t go wrong with UOVO.
