Hollywood's terrifically patioed Italian trattoria

Named after the raddest of the seven hills Rome was built on (sorry Esquiline), Aventine's a date-ready Italian trattoria via San Fran with an eye-bonering patio complete with its own bar, Victorian-trimmed leather couches, and a pair of giant Christmas-light-lit olive trees. Food's all bootsy, including pancetta pizza (w/ roasted Brussels sprouts, caramelized onions, and roasted hazelnuts), and entrees like grilled lamb chop w/ balsamic mint reduction and kumquat confit.
