The new go-to Italian restaurant in Santa Monica. A hole-in-the-wall feel from the outside, but cozy mom-and-pop feel on the inside. Constantly busy on a weeknight! Delicious Italian food (think Pasta & Salads) with great family and group friendly atmosphere. MENU
They have a cute dessert bakery area in the front where you can buy macaroons and cakes This place is absolutely awesome. Great food, great drinks, great coffee, great desserts. The greatest thing is that you can come here late and eat super late too. Delicious food, desserts, drinks with great ambiance and excellent service
Pastas, antipasto and salads are the strengths of this place - in particular the sauces are done really well. Pizza here has thin crust and the amount of sauce and cheese is perfect. Farfalle Angelino, Rigatoni con Ragu, Linguine del Golfo...this joint is small and quaint, but the flavor of their dishes is a revelation. Sublime Italian fare if there is such a thing. MENU
Fresh, plentiful and tasty! Panini Cafe does Mediterranean light and right! This downtown location is easy to access and is family-friendly and super casual. The appetizer combo platter is excellent - favorites are the dolmas. All the entrees are huge and come with rice and salad. The breakfast is so good .The bacon and egg breakfast panini is amazing MENU
This is one of the best pizzas in LA... Very simple and delicious.... That wood fire oven, the friendly service, and best of all their margarita plus is to die for. Highly recommend the burrata plus pizza- though you can't go wrong with any of them. The cauliflower and peppers are good and great starters. MENU
Vintage Enoteca is a small, cute little nice spot for light fare and good wine. There are a handful of tall tables from which to choose and a small patio area with benches and low tables. Very attentive service, quiet and romantic atmosphere, and gourmet food at reasonable prices. All of the wines are winners. Food comes tapas-style. MENU
Tasty, fresh, healthy food. Quick and good service. They bake their bread fresh everyday and have great customer service. Great place to eat, great customer service. They have a healthy menu choice. This place has a good balance between food that is tasty, healthy, and relatively filling. MENU
Nice atmosphere, once you sit down it's pretty relaxing, with soft lighting and decent acoustics so it doesn't feel like you can hear everyones' conversations. But be prepared for a serious line at all hours of the day. For just under $7—or about two slices at most places—you can get a whole 12-inch Neapolitan style pizza Margherita fresh out of a wood-fired oven. Fresh toppings, ranging from a variety of imported Italian cheeses to Manila clams, are all at your disposal, though we recommend trusting their specialty pies to avoid experimenting with topping combinations that could potentially go awry.
Generous portions, fresh deli cuts, and old world Italian charm The seating is limited and the lines get long for the deli counter. The staff is quick and helpful, but you still need to be prepared to order what you want quickly during busy hours. Almost all of the sandwiches are delectable. MENU
Really great pizza, fast service and nice setting. Eating outside on a nice day is a plus at this location There's literally an endless selection of crusts, toppings, sauces, and chesses. The slices and serving sizes are generous and the service is impeccable.MENU

Everything about this deli is 5-star. The sandwiches are delicious, as are the pastas. The market is small but has some good finds. What makes this place exceptional is the staff. They are friendly, flexible, and good at what they do. Their sign outside that reads, "Best Sandwiches in town!" is true. Perfect neighborhood italian deli. Roast beef and eggplant parm sandwiches are delicious. MENU
