“Great find in Culver City”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Just opened so service is still working out kinks. Food is solid, creative, clean flavors. Small portions to share, two outside patios, interesting menu. Fun atmosphere on a nice nite. Try the bread, pastas - which are far more exotic than you would expect. Exceeded expectations. Give them some time to hone the skills service wise and this will be a hard reservation.

“My vote for the #1 Restaurant in Los Angeles”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Went to the opening of Bucato, Evan Funke's new restaurant in Culver City, AND from now on, this is my FAVORITE place to go.. How much did I like it, we are going again this weekend. The Pasta takes me back to Rome and the portion sizes are just right.. But the flavor is unbelievable, DELICIOUS AND WANTING FOR MORE! Price is so reasonable - and did I mention the desserts? All mine:) Heaven........
