Italian trattoria with handmade pasta
Italian · Venice Beach
A temperature-controlled and glass-enclosed pasta-rolling laboratory helms the center of this warm-wood and mid-century vintage-themed Italian trattoria from beloved chef Evan Funke, on hip Abbot Kinney in Venice. Pappardelle, rigatoni, orchiette and other hand-made noodles emerge as carefully plated yet rustic dishes, alongside a robust and traditional menu of antipasti, secondi and vegetable contorni—plus old school aperitivi and European beers.

First I want to say, the staff was great, very friendly and accommodating. The food however, wasn’t really worth the money for me. We ordered two pasta dishes, the first one had Italian bacon in it, which is already very salty. But the key is not to over salt the dish itself. The dish was the saltiest pasta dish I’ve ever had, it was so bad my husband no longer wanted to finish it. The second pasta dish had clams in it, the first thing I noticed was how incredibly small the plate was considering the size difference to our first dish, the plate didn’t represent any of the pictures I had seen online or around me. The pasta itself was very fresh and the sauce was amazing, but wasn’t worth the price to have such a small portion. The clams were cooked nicely but with every bite I could taste left over sand which took away the enjoyment of the clams. Our drinks however were very good and bartender was very nice and attentive. The atmosphere was nice but this isn’t a place I’d go back to if I was very hungry the dishes left me confused and in desperate need of water from the left over sand and saltiness that was left in my mouth. Over all experience was just okay.

Amazing food. The tastes are all simple yet complex at the same time. The ambiance is cool and maybe a little bit too trendy but definitely worth a try. Not sure if it is actually worth the one month wait though.
