Italian fare amid industrial-chic spot
Italian · Downtown · $$$
Sotto’s Steve Samson makes a big statement with this glitzy, cavernous, and indoor-outdoor Italian enoteca in a formerly historic produce market complex in Downtown Los Angeles. The food is inspired by Samson’s Bolognese nonna—especially the handmade pasta—but the menu also includes a robust selection of cured and grilled meats, as well as a Pan-Italian list of wines, complimented by California vintages and craft cocktails as well.

It feels like you are entering a hidden gem. The murals are gorgeous and the lighting is a good balance of light/dark (for my taste). Staff is friendly and attentive. But the food is just ok. The veal is served medium rare (more on the rare side). The eggplant appetizer was good but nothing spectacular. The meatballs were delicious but didn't seem like anything special. The fish was bland. The dessert was unmemorable. The only food I loved were the charcoal roasted vegetables and the spinach that came with the veal.But what I found most puzzling was the atrocious plating of the food. Just ugly. And the plates were too big and didn't fit on our tiny table for four. Also, the valet was full at 745pm which seems odd and inappropriate.

Wonderful space and some of the best service you're likely to get in Los Angeles. Really interesting wine list, and the food is thoughtful, creative, rich. The eggplant appetizer was very good, and reminded me of being in Sicily. The pastas are made in house, which makes such a difference. Looking forward to returning soon.

What a quaint little restaurant with an eclectic homey vibe! The food was delicious and very fresh tasting. We ordered 4 different entrees and they were all very good and reasonably priced. Coffee and coconut flan was the delicious finishing touch to a great evening
