I've only been here for my Macarons. The Macarons are tasty, the flavors are both intense and subtle. The shells melt in your mouth and the inside is chewy enough but if you hold it long enough also melts. Their pizza is another item I've tried and it was not disappointing. They make it super thin and have the luxurious... More

We just moved downtown LA after many years on the west side. Bottega Louie is our go to place - breakfast, lunch or dinner. Frankly, I have never had a bad dish here. Love the pizzas (watch them make them). My favorite dish on the menu of all things is the roast chicken. Be prepared, no reservations and there can... More

We went to Bottega Louie before the Dodger game, and what a fantastic experience! Open kitchen allows you to watch them prep all the fresh ingredients before you grab a table, from heirloom tomatoes to fresh cooked pasta. Simple pizza with Burrata and Prosciutto was perfect, light and fresh tasting. Menu had all the great standards, and our chicken pillared... More

Nice spot but what a disappointment. Half our order came. The rest never showed up. Our waiter disappeared. I spoke with manager who was great but unacceptable way to treat customers. The salads were great. The lasagna superb. Not much attention to the customer. Everyone can have an off night but WOW!

Great pizzas, small plates and huge selection of sweets. The bare walls reflect so much it's hard to hear anything, despite the high ceilings. A small pastry can be twelve dollars but it's totally worth it.

Lovely marble and gold decor. Very opulent. Beautiful display of pastries. Excellent pizza and polite service. Coffee good too, although quite expensive at US$5.50 per cup. Massive cup size although gets cold quickly in such a big cup. I'm a it particular about my coffee as we're very spoilt in Sydney.

Easily my favorite restaurant in down town LA. Perfect for a light meal or a formal lunch or dinner. Desserts and coffee also great! Wide selection of French pastries and breakfast too.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
