Bottle Inn, Hermosa Beach -- Quaint and charming

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... read more

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.

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.

Thursday We met friends to enjoy a wine tasting and then dinner. The $10pp wine tasting fee is credited to dinner. Fun sitting outside fresh air and ocean view to taste 6 wines. A wine distributor brought wines from several wineries. Then chose a new dinner special. 3 courses for about $15pp.appetizer or soup and then choice of chicken or... More

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...

Really used to like this quaint place at the beach...but definitely not as good as it used to be. Lots of other places in the beach towns better than this.

Nice little gem near the beach. It has a cozy feel to it. I had the Rigatoni and my date had Chicken Parmesan both were equally delicious! I don't think you can go wrong with anything on their menu. The service was also great, we were constantly checked on and our glasses always refilled without asking. They definitely anticipate your... More

Make no mistake. If you are looking for an uber-chic, nouveau Northern Italian restaurant, this isn't it. What it is, is a wonderful, old fashioned Italian restaurant with great food, reasonable prices, and friendly, helpful staff. Whatever your selection, the portions are very generous, and quickly served. My favorite is the eggplant parmesan, simply the best I've ever had. In... More
