Great ideas, flawed execution!

We 4½ made it an early family dinner and liked the informal cozy atmosphere. Service was excellent as to the speed of the kitchen and to the attentiveness of the servers. Although food came fast it had the feel of freshly made. The menu is just a bit off the main standard Italian mix. The starters... read more

This is a comfortable, friendly neighborhood restaurant serving old school Italian dishes. No pretension, just delicious food in a pleasant environment near the beach.

Don't judge a book by its cover! From the outside, it looks like an older building with the adequate decor and famous people on their walls. The food is good. I like the chicken and fish entree's. The salads are good too.

Went to the restaurant with high hopes for good, authentic Italian food. Our dishes, chicken and veal piccata were mediocre with a heavy handed, very lemony sauce. My veal dish did not have any capers while my wifes chicken dish did? Ambiance is very old Italian, and wait staff had heavy accents, but the food just missed.

My wife had wanted to visit The Bottle Inn in Hermosa Beach for over thirty years, but never went (I hadn't known!). We went there for dinner Saturday night (5/30) and were not disappointed. It is a fairly small restaurant, especially from the street, located steps from the beach. It has been in operation for at least thirty years and... More

Delicious authentic Italian meal with a wonderful view of the Pacific. We sat outside and lavished in the atmosphere while enjoying wonderful food and service. We had the chicken piccata and chicken rigatoni which were both delicious. A great recommendation in Hermosa Beach.

A long term well established restaurant that offers a varied menu of classic Italian dishes at fair prices. We have been dining here for years and appreciate the quint atmosphere in today's world of trendy, noisy restaurants. A helpful and friendly staff guarantees a pleasant dining experience.

Was looking for family friendly Italian joint for the family visiting from out of town. Having read reviews on Yelp, though I give it a try and made the reservation. When we got there, we were placed at the table by the doorway. There were not enough chairs for everyone. After pulling another chair from a nearby table, there were... More

The Bottle Inn consistenly serves large portions of good food. I have eaten here regularly over the years, and the food never disappoints. The service can be a bit spotty if the restaurant is busy, however. And the prices have gone up fairly substantially over the last few years (or at least it seems so). Bottom line is that, for...
