There’s no lack of good Italian food in Silver Lake, but you don’t come to Speranza for the pasta. You come for the leafy, cozy patio, and the permanent crowd of people in loose fabrics who you’re pretty sure you danced with at the Echoplex last weekend. The food is solid and simple, like the pasta bolognese. On weekends, you’re going to need a reservation if you don’t want to wait 45 minutes - Silver Lake has a lot of cool kids, and at least for now, Speranza is their hideout.
