Being Italian and appreciating Italian food, I can say that there no restaurants in the South Bay that offer authentic Italian food, except for Hostaria Piave.The food reflects the origin of the owner who is from Venice. It is very good, and very authentic from that region. The owner has a passion for food and does not want to compromise by changing the flavors of the authentic food. The ambience is casual and relaxed, with indoor and outdoor dining. Excellent wine choices and very reasonably priced. If you like beer try one of the best Italian beers called Menabrea. Appetizers to try include the Vitello Tonnato, and the Misto Fritto (fried fish and vegetables). Among the pastas the Gnocchi are excellent, as are the Pasticcio (a Lasagna type dish), and the ravioli with coniglio are excellent. At this restaurant one gets to taste typical Italian food without having to fly all the way to Italy.

Hostaria Piave is a small and cozy Italian restaurant located in Redondo Beach, CA on Pacific Coast Highway. It has both indoor and outdoor dining and a superb wine list. Anna is the wife of the chef and a wine expert. She is gracious and helpful with ordering dinner. The smoked carpaccio appetizer is delicious and light. We will have it next time we visit. We enjoyed the homemade raviolis and veal chop with bone in. Both were cooked to perfection. The bread is wonderful too, Try a bottle of Vermentino white wine.. It paired quite well with our dinner, There are lots of dessert choices, but the sorbets were outstanding. Great coffee to end the evening with a complimentary dessert wine to boot. Try it - you will like it,

Visited with my husband and 5 year old daughter. All of us loved the food and the waitor was very friendly. There was nice classical music playing in the background and the restaurant had a genuine Italian vibe.

For an Italian restaurant, I thought the food was very bland. All of the entre's we order were jus ok. Which is disappointing because the prices are pretty high. There is a large variety of wine available, but the waitress didn't know anything about the, I asked her if they had bread and she said she would get us some. Never got it. Took at least 10 minutes to get the wine we ordered and at least that long to get food. Waitress asked me if I wanted another glass of and I said yes, but never got it. The food was the biggest disappointment. The noise level is very high and very uncomfortable. You cannot have a quiet conversation. Will not return.

After many times of driving by the little Italian restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway, we finally went for dinner. The outdoor tables looked inviting, surrounded by little white lights and greenery -- a little traffic noise, but al fresco is always fun. We enjoyed the appetizer of clams, mussels,and crab in a deliciously spiced broth and then pasta dishes -- just the right size with a choice of first course or entree helpings. The wine list is extensive and service is pleasant. Fair prices.
