At this jammed, tiny Tuscan restaurant (only 21 indoor tables), Tobey Maguire likes the straccetti with tomato and basil, while Jack Nicholson enjoys the veal cutlet in lemon. Table 1 is a regular spot for such power brokers as Bob Daly, Steve Tisch, Jerry Weintraub and Brian Grazer (who regularly goes for the Dover sole). Even renowned restaurateur Peter Morton is a regular (and recently was spotted cramming into what looked like a table for two with a pair of lunchmates.) "I'm not looking to expand, and I enjoy what I do. People see that, and it's part of why they come," says chef-owner Edoardo Baldi (whose late father opened Santa Monica's Giorgio Baldi restaurant), explaining the loyalty of his fan base.
