The Resort at Pelican Hill is a long ways from Italy in Newport Beach, Calif. but a visit here might have you believing you really did stay at an Italian seaside village on your vacation. And it will be all thanks to the resort's freshly-made pasta.
Pelican Hill has 128 ultra-luxe bungalows and villas where guests can retreat after a long, "hard" day of relaxing by the circular pool, hitting the Tom Fazio-designed golf course, playing tourist at nearby Balboa Island or even just meandering the expansive resort grounds.
At night, there's no need to venture outside into the "rough and tumble" streets of Newport because the resort has its own incredibly authentic Italian restaurant, Andrea Ristorante with tables on a terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Here Chef Marco Criscuolo has created a menu filled with northern Italy specialities using ingredients locally sourced from The Irvine Ranch (these folks also own the hotel.) And of course, pasta is featured heavily on the menu, so much so that the restaurant has its own temperature-controlled pasta room where over a dozen pastas are made everyday. Come si dice "Swoon" in Italiano?

Justin Bieber was busted being blunt (er smoking one?) with pics showing him holding a brown, non-cigar like cigarette. Thankfully, there were no photos of him passing the Dutchie.
We'd clutch our pearls in shock, but that would be silly. Seems like 18-year old Biebs has been trying to break his “good boy” image for a minute now, so what better way to do it than by hanging in a Newport Beach, California hotel and partying with his so-called BFF, rapper Lil Twist (who??).
Unfortunately, the young pop star must have been too blazed to figure out that one of his grimy pals was taking pics of the smokefest and they ultimately ended up on TMZ . Naturally, the story spread like an STD all over the Internet this past weekend.
