Fodor's Expert Review Bottega Louie

$$$ Downtown Los Angeles Italian

A Downtown dining staple, this lively Italian restaurant and gourmet market features open spaces, stark white walls, and majestic floor-to-ceiling windows. If the wait is too long at this no-reservations eatery, you can sip on Prosecco and nibble on pastries at the bar. Servers weave through the cavernous dining hall carrying bowls of trenne pasta with braised beef ribs or tartufo pizzas with black truffle mushrooms. Entrées range from chicken Parm to steak frites, while smaller plates feature mouthwatering favorites like blue crab brioche and one-of-a-kind portobello fries.
