Eight years ago, when La Botte first opened, the food was excellent and pricey. Last night I used a Groupon and ordered branzino for $34. I expected the usual and customary whole fish. Instead, I was served a tiny steamed filet of unidentifiable fish that...More

La Botte I don’t write online reviews and hardly ever read online reviews before eating out. Way too many people give single stars and leave negative comments just because one little thing was wrong- like a “rude” hostess or something. And when it comes to...More

I do like this place. But when I ordered a bottle of wine and an appetizer together, I expect to enjoy them together. It was beyond irritating that we had finished a plate of Carpaccio before our wine got to out table some 15 minutes...More

I could not understand why this place wasn't getting excellent reviews every time, so I headed back to see if anything had changed. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful and the food was superb. I would describe the menu as Adventurous Italian, with some...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
