For her birthday celebration this year, Nikita asked if we could go to Bollini's Pizzeria Napoletana on Garfield in Monterey Park. It's not far from the office, and the thought of Italian food made everyone immediately say, "Yes! Let's go!".

Our waiter was a nice guy. I'm surprised he heard any of our orders with all the ambient noise from other diners. It's a noisy place.
When our pasta orders finally arrived, I was delighted that my pasta carbonara was served with the egg on top! You can't see it in the photo, because I had already mixed it into my pasta before I remembered to take a picture. But it was really authentic carbonara, guys! Pancetta! Peas! Silky sauce! Really yummy!
