    Save room for one of their desserts. The olive oil cake with almonds and fresh berries was perfectly moist. The cannoli wasn't bad either.

    The guanciale pizza, the vegetable risotto, and that breeeead. With burrata. Order it all. And the wine list is ridiculous. Best reds I've had in awhile. #yum

    Nice pizza in L.A. indeed but if you come from Naples you'll give it a 6, which is still better than the rest.

    My most favorite restaurant in the area. Spicy clam and Meatball can be addictive. Every mebu uses lots of ingredients to make the taste unique and super tasty.

    The fileja calabresi, almost like long twisted sheets made into tubes, comes tossed in a spicy sausage ragu, mustard greens for a bitter counterpoint, and spicy calabrian chiles for that hit of heat. Read more

    A lot of the same ingredients. A lot of microwaved dishes

    Great spot with a mellow candlelit ambience & friendly staff. The margarita pizza & spicy clams are delicious. Brynn is an amazing bartender & her or the awesome sommelier will take great care of you!

    Fantastic food and drinks. Server left something to be desired, but not a deal breaker for a return visit.

    The bread with lardo is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Other winners: pork meatballs and pork belly (only on Sundays) and octopus-burrata spaghetti.

    SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT. Small dessert list, all executed deliciously. Every dessert list should aspire to be like Sotto's.

    this place impressed us - esoteric wine list with good values, pappy van winkle in the house and really solid food.

  • Alex S.

    Great food and service, charming atmosphere, but apparently it's the restaurant "policy" to train their wait staff to upsell the hell out their dishes, so make sure you insist on ordering *less*!!

    Solid cocktails & pizzas. Great vibe. Enjoy.

    When you order pizza make sure to ask them to cut it for you else you get it uncut Naple-style.

    FYI their "Mexican vodka" is actually tequila.

    Great cocktails but don't try to order a libation off the menu, they don't allow it.
