Osteria Latini’s chef and owner Paolo Pasio’s brand new Venice Beach Italian restaurant next to the canals on Washington in the reappointed site of Marguerite Cafe. Exceptional sandwiches. Good crowds but not crowded. An auspicious opening.

One of the busiest restaurants in L.A. Pasta by the shovelful, garlic knots till you burst, endless wine for your thirst. All this, and it’s painted like a movie set. Or a theme park.

Gourmet Italian deli/cafe at Ocean Front Walk and Rose. Fancier fare than most of what you’ll find on the boardwalk. Pricier, too.

A small cafe with a couple tables along the sidewalk out front, Meditrina is a low key local fave. Their salads are killer. Actually, if you like comfort food (Italian or otherwise) you can’t go wrong at here.
