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.

Locals go here for classic Italian in a low-key environment (read: not C & O theme park). Full bar, natch. Did I mention the little loaves of bread and garlic oil? That’s because I don’t want you to know.

I miss 5 Dudley, which used to be in this spot. However, I hear the food at Piccolo Cipriani is excellent. Cozy little place right off ocean front walk only open for dinner.
