I've been to La Sosta several times, but my last visit pushed me over the edge because I feel that the prices are outrageous. I was treated to dinner and embarrassed that our hosts had to pay such an outrageous bill. We had an excellent server who guided our selections and paced the multiple courses very well. The four of... More

They say the third time is the charm but I'll never know if that's true. This was my second visit to La Sosta. I would love to love it. Great building, nice interior, cute waiters, chic menu. Sadly, for the second time, I don't. Horrendously overpriced considering both creativity and execution. $40 for a cup of langoustine gnocchi that was... More

My wife and I had two small plates of pasta- hers was dry (sea urchin) and undercooked, mine was flavorful (house special) and overcooked. Two glasses of white wine and the tab came to $100. Were the dishes better executed and larger, they might have been worth it. We just wanted a very light meal, had heard good things about... More

This is a wonderful, intimate, romantic little Italian place in Hermosa; it's our go-to for a special night out. It's a bit on the pricey side ($30/dish) but the incredible Italian authenticity of the food makes it worthwhile. This is the best pasta I've had outside of Venice.

I'm from Venice and I went to this restaurant recomended by friends and I felt like home, Luca suggested me an appetizer with mushrooms and it was super delicious, and after I had Bigoli in Salas which is a typical venetian pasta dish with onions and he did better than in Venice, Luca suggested me to drink with the pasta...

Let me start by saying that we are regulars here. It's the best quality food south of Santa Monica. The staff is warm and friendly and treat you like family. The ambiance is quaint but perfect for a romantic date or group of friends. The cutting board is a must have. I always order for 2 less people than we... More

I had my 30th B-Day dinner here on March 6th. I thought this might have been one of those small restaurant unique finds. I was very much wrong and was hating every minute of it. My wife looked at the expression on my face, and she said I looked like I wanted to get out of there as soon as... More

Wine list is a poor value (mediocre $60 Nebbiolo), and the crowded bistro-style ambience is very noisy. Overall food quality would be a good value at half the price.

Start to finish just wonderful. The restaurant is lit by candle light and feels more European than SoCal. Started with board of mixed meats and cheeses honey and yummy dust of some sort, memory fails. Home made bread looked nice. We all shared two starters: Italian salad which was dressed in a gorgeous mustard dressing and shrimp on polenta also... More

When I first saw the menu, it looked different. No red sauces!! What kind of Italian is this ... it was fantastic. I had the special pasta dish which was homemade fettuccine with salmon, a "touch" of cream, and caviar. It was incredible -- much better than I had even hoped for. After dinner we were given some mini cream... More
