    Cavatelli alla Norcina (amazing)
  • LA Weekly

    Open until 11 p.m. during the week, which means you might be able to snag a table and dine after hours on house-cured meats, bone marrow with spinach gnocchetti and handmade agnolotti. Leggi tutto

    The real draw here are the perfect, soul-warming pastas. The spaghetti rustichella with dungeness crab and cavatelli alla norcina with housemade pork sausage and black truffle are the slam dunks. Leggi tutto

    Think seasonal, meat-driven rustic Italian in an industrial space in the heart of the Arts District. It's one of the most constantly booked restaurants despite having a nearly hidden location. Leggi tutto

    There's heavy emphasis on house-cured meats, pizzas, and pastas, with unexpected and inspired flavors. The beverage program here, from cocktails to wine, is a hit, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    The Company Man cocktail is a winning way to start a meal. Its flavor resides somewhere between a Martini and a Martinez with a touch of sweetness on the front and a dry, slightly bitter finish.

    My biggest fear right after I was lucky enough to get a reservation: to be eating in an overrated place. Thank God I was wrong! Bestia is seriously one of the best places to go for dinner in LA

    Bestia offers a range of quality Italian fare that encompasses pizza. The Margherita is a beauty, all bubbly mozz and bright tomato sauce, with fragrant basil on top.
