Casual gourmet dining.
We have enjoyed the menu and service of the West Los Angeles location of La Bottega Marino for years. Whether it’s an early dinner, delivery for a party at home or celebrating a special occasion in La Bottega Marino’s private room, Gregory, David, Lupe, Alex and Rio know which menu items chef Sal Marino has chosen to feature that day.
We especially like the texture/flavor mix of crostini and vegetarian antipasto appetizers; the branzini [its accompanying salsa verde is to die for], melt-in- your mouth tagliata and light-and-bursting-with-flavor pizza entrees; bread pudding and cheesecake desserts.
Gourmet items are available for purchase. Located near the Royal and NuArt movie theaters, La Bottega Marino’s West Los Angeles location is a great place to discuss film.
Citysearch Editorial Review.
This casual offshoot of celeb- and industry-favorite Marino Ristorante is where Beverly Hills locals head for updated, delicious twists on Southern Italian dishes. Airy, simple and modern, the space features a small bar, arched ceilings, glass walls that look out onto Santa Monica Boulevard and a modest open kitchen. Menu items include starters like organic zucchini blossoms generously stuffed with housemade ricotta, a surprisingly light salmon fettuccine in pink sauce and entrees from breaded chicken marinara to homemade bianca lasagna.
