If you are staying at the Erwin, this place is right next to your lobby. Pizzas, pastas and empanadas. Some are trendy and they have a hot oven so you get great cracker-thin crust. Toppings range to the unusual - like prosciutto and olives. They perhaps have too heavy a hand with the olive oil, but that's a taste thing.... More

It was late in the evening and my friend and I were starving. The security guard at our hotel recommended two places and we chose Santino's since it was right around the corner. The place looks like a dive and it was CASH ONLY. We ordered the Peruvian Cerviche and the Tortilla Espanola. Our eyebrows raised when we took our... More

There are two locations for Santino's - one is on Lincoln Blvd. in Santa Monica. I went with a friend for a light bite to eat, knowing they had tapas. What I didn't realize was how perfect a place it was for a Saturday night dinner. Very nicely decorated interior - busy but not noisy. We had a really nice... More

I went here for a quick bite before going to explore the Boardwalk. The place did not look like much, but the food was SENATIONAL! I have the Argentinian sausage pizza and I can honestly say it is the best pizza I ever ate (and I've had a few). My buddy also ordered pizza and his was also superb -... More

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
