American actor Peter Facinelli has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents, consistently turning out distinctive and impressive performances. After starring in CBS’ Swat, playing the part of a confident businessman and volunteer Police Commissioner, he recently made his directorial debut in the comedy Breaking and Exiting. The American actor and producer has also portrayed Donovan “Van” Ray on the Fox series Fastlane while holding down a regular part in the dark comedy-drama series Nurse Jackie. Notoriously playing the part of Carlisle Cullen in the film adaptation of Twilight, he reprised the roles in the film’s multiple sequels, which has helped to establish his profile with younger audiences.
Facinelli, who is of Italian descent, made his screen debut in Rebecca Miller’s 1995 picture Angela and has worked consistently ever since. Next to his acting, Facinelli founded his own production company: their first feature was Loosies, written by and starring Facinelli himself. In 2015, he co-wrote the novel After the Red Rain with Barry Lyga and Robert DeFranco and has since produced a number of Hallmark Channel films including Accidentally in Love. Facinelli’s recent projects include the upcoming action flick Running with the Devil, which will see the actor star opposite Nicolas Cage.
When he was asked by a reporter about his favorite food he replied When I was growing up she cooked six days a week, and she only took one day off. We had a pizza night. I never went to restaurants or went out to eat because my mom would cook all the time.
But here in LA, I don’t always get to cook. So sometimes going out to eat is easier. So I like sushi and Mexican food. But I like cooking as well. I cook sometimes for the kids, and barbecue for friends.
In the interview, the reporter asked Peter Do you have a singular favorite restaurant in LA?:
He replied I would say in LA, my favorite sushi place is called Sushi Yuzu. It’s in Toluca Lake.
Broders' Pasta Bar
My other favorite restaurant is Broders' Pasta Bar and their risotto with smoked mozzarella pasta.
Another favorite he mentioned is Carbone. It has charm thanks to its massive menus, tile floors, and waiters in burgundy tuxedos, making it one of the best old-school restaurants in America.
Peter’s other favorite restaurant is Apizza Scholls. It serves some of the best pizza in the Pacific Northwest. And he liked their pizza so much that he visited every weekend to eat the best pizza in town.
Giovanni's is full of old-school, red-sauce-infused charm. It serves the best meat lasagne in town. He mostly visits this restaurant to beat his meaty cravings on weekends.
Mathieu Palombino's Neapolitan-style pies have become beloved in New York. I would suggest to my people if they have a love for pies they should visit Motorino to have the yummiest pies in the city and enjoy them.
