This beautiful Italian restaurant at Venice Beach, Los Angeles, could have had everything going for them. Nice food, amazing desserts and a great location. BUT, when you are getting "the evil eye" from the waiter because you do not order a starter and the wines...More

Not the most auspicious location, but Venice has managed to support this fine restaurant for some years now. The food is highest quality, excellent service, and always at least one knock out dish...for us it was the carpaccio, duck two ways, & flourless choc not-cake....More

The restaurant has a very romantic atmosphere and the food was an experience that no one should miss out on. I am still dreaming of the scallop dish that I ordered.

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
