The owner is a lovely man who obviously takes great pride in presenting his food and welcoming diners to his establishment. We've eaten here many times, and have also attended their wine tasting events. Highly recommended for couples or friends for a nice evening out. Good value. The space is small, but charming.

When we first pulled up we were a little surprised of the setting it is on the second floor of a strip mall. Not what you might expect. That feeling went away soon as we were greeted warmly and sat right away. This is a small not fancy place but get past it and you will have a nice enjoyable... More

This is a ersatz Italian. Nothing hits the mark. Everything is over cooked and lacking in authenticity. Italian food is about simple fresh ingredients cooked well with a balance of flavours. At ifs brst three is nothing better. Problem is other than one waiter no-one has even been to Italy.

I had the pasta with meat sauce and a spinach salad and cold bread with no butter. Pasta was just ok. Not bad, but low on flavor and the serving was on the small side. Salad did not work. Again a small serving. Spinach, walnuts, Apples and gorgonzola Cheese. I just could not get past that cheese. Bottom Line: Sitting... More

My partner was out of town on business, and I decided to take the boys on a weeknight for dinner at Mosto Enoteca in Marina del Rey. What a wonderful treat for everyone. We sat on the deck overlooking Washington Blvd and a peek of Mother's beach in the distance. The owner and his wife were there and were very... More

We found the menu appealing and it did not disappoint. Painfully slow service such a shame we couldn't wait for pudding!

Excellent Italian food served with a smile on the balcony to our group of 7. Fortunately we had made reservations.

My husband & I visited Mosto last evening for an early dinner. Our food was good and creative. I'd advise readers to think of it as having dinner in someone's home, as the interior isn't scrubbed (but fine), and there is no corporate feel at all. I ordered from the Happy Hour menu and was pleased with everything. The pasta... More

We read previous reviews & thought we'd try this on a Sunday for dinner. Service was sporadic, I ordered 2 cheeses for an appetiser & had to ask for some bread to go with it (how else would you eat cheese?), premium price for a glass of wine & for the fish of the day - $35! This was for... 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.
