A fresh blend of California and Italian cuisine served in a dramatic interior.. The Scene When the owners Il Mito (Italian for "The Myth") relocated from Los Angeles, they painted the galaxy on their new ceiling. This stellar ceiling art and soaring windows lend the interior of this restored, Walker's Point building an outdoorsy feel even in mid-winter.
The Food Fresh herbs, extra-virgin olive oil, and a creative approach to seasoning enliven Il Mito's marinara sauce, making the meat dishes and eggplant appetizer fabulous. However, the seafood tortellini's delicate, chowder-style sauce falls victim to too much cardamom. For dessert, the tiramisu is a true indulgence: It has more cream than cake and is drenched in chocolate, mocha, raspberry and burnt-sugar syrups.
