We chose this restaurant based on the previous reviews. My husband and I were staying in Marina del Rey and visiting our 2 sons who are currently going to school in L.A. and we were taking them out to dinner along with some friends who live in L.A. We wanted to go somewhere where our friends wouldn't have been before and that would be really good and kind of different; not one of the typical big restaurants on the water with a great view but average food. This restaurant is steps away from Venice Beach in a very funky little area which is full of restaurants and bars. It doesn't actually face the beach but we sat outside at the front on the street and we could see the beach. It was a small, intimate patio with heat and the menu was terrific.There is a good selection of seafood and meats and even the vegetables were excellent. The food is really fresh and the sauces are delicious. I started with an artichoke (whole) appetizer which was beautifully laid out on the plate with all the work done for me. Then I had Veal Marsala which was fabulous.Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their dinners and the wine selections. We didn't go inside the restaurant but it's a very cute little European-looking bistro. We had a lot of fun and were pleased that we picked this restaurant for a nice dinner.
