Fantastic place for pizza and pasta... oh yeah, and salad and everything else. It's my favorite West LA neighborhood spot. In search of a great pizza? La Bottega Marino is your answer. The servers are so kind and polite and the prices are

Food was mediocre, tiny amounts of the ingredients listed (had to search for the pancetta in our pasta), topped with a sub-par, negligent and rude server. I've had amazing Italian food, including in Italy, and this was not even close.

We have enjoyed the menu and service of the West Los Angeles location of La Bottega Marino for years. Whether its an early dinner, delivery for a party at home or celebrating a special occasion in La Bottega Marinos private room,

Pros: Flavorful food, outstanding service

Cons: The room is drafty.

In my opinion, hands down, the best NY style pizza in LA. Perfect flavor. Slightly more expensive than others but well worth it.

One of the best kept secrets in WLA, La Bottega is a casual Italian deli that has surprisingly good food at reasonable prices. Perhaps because it shares a kitchen with the upscale Il Grano next door, the quality is excellent. It's a funky place -- the type of neighborhood joint you eat in because of the food and relaxed atmosphere, but perhaps not the place to impress out of towners. I've eaten there regularly and had food delivered -- and I've yet to have a bad meal. Great pizza and pasta, especially.

Pros: Great food, laid-bac ambience, easy parking, efficient home delivery

Cons: Service can be great -- or slow. There's no predicting.

My now-husband and I stopped in on a random Saturday night, planning on going to Dolores, which is right across the street, but, our curiousity drew us in. We didn't even realize there were two restaurants (Il Grano is the restaurant, La Bottega is more like a trattoria), and we were worried because we were just in jeans. But, we were welcomed in and seated right away. It is an intimate setting, with just a few tables interspersed within the racks of the Italian foods that they sell. There is also a section by the door that is a deli.

Our server was so attentive and great. He gave us, on the house, a fantastic appetizer of some sort of eggplant with Italian bread, and the standard bruschetta toppings that they always give. I have never seen that appetizer listed on the menu, which is a shame because I hate eggplant, but, I loved this! My husband ordered the artichoke ravioli, which is served with a pink sauce, which is definitely something they prepare well. I ordered the fettuccine al salmone e vodka (or something like that). It is fettuccine with delicious, tender salmon chunks and capers, with an out of this world vodka sauce. I have never ordered anything else, it is my favourite! My husband used to order other things, but, now he always orders this, too, or the artichoke ravioli, if we are not hungry. The fettuccine dish is huge, and I can never eat more than half. Which is a good thing, because it is fantastic for leftovers. This place is right out of Italy, but, I am glad it is not Italy, because then I couldn't take home the leftovers!

I have only had room for dessert once; I had their nut torte. It was only okay, it was very bland. Their desserts do look delicious, and I have wanted to try others. They are all presented in the case next to the deli case, which you can drool over on the rare occasions when you have to wait for a table. Honestly, their food is so satisfying, you won't miss dessert, if nothing strikes your fancy.

Pros: Delicious, imaginitive Italian fare, casual but top-notch

Cons: Parking, too small for more than 4

This place has a surprising menu given its small size and deli-style atmosphere. This is a great place to stop by on your way too or from the movies or if Il Grano (next door) is full (lot's of people seemed confused that there were two Italian places door-to-door, but it seems to work out well).

I actually haven't eaten in the restaurant, which I hear is nice, but have been very happy with the takeout I ordered! Flavorful pasta, a wonderful cheese plate, hearty soups - really good stuff.

I usually come to La Bottega for a quick take-out dish. They are always pleasant, courteous and provide excellent service while I wait. And the food is fairly priced and great! It's a wonderful neighborhood secret of West LA!

I've been a customer at La Bottega Marino for a few years, but mostly having it delivered. First I used to order from their location in Larchmont Village, then, after I moved to the westside, from their West LA location. The food is always excellent, and in partuicular I love their mushroom polenta appetizer and penne ai fungi porcinifor main course. Both meat and white lasagna are great, pizzas are thin-crust, and they have good starter salads. The West LA location is more like a deli, but they have a great selection of dry pastas (some of which you cannot buy at a regular grocery store, like orrichiette), cold cuts, desserts and wines.
If you are not looking for an extremely romantic place but would like excellent Italian dishes, this is the place for you. I highly recommend it!

I ordered lasagna and a pasta dish delivered to my place. The delivery was fast and efficient. The food was still hot. They even wrap a little piece of bread to compliment each meal. The food itself is great; the prices are reasonable. I recommend this place.

A great little restaurant perfect for an after-movie meal. Its close proximity to Laemmle's Royal and the Nuart theaters makes it a great stop while strolling down Santa Monica. Affable service, reasonable prices and great food make this place a prime stop of mine. Everything on the menu is great, from the sandwiches/salads to the pastas to the fantastic pizza. They have a great deli and grocery selection along with some of the best tiramisu I've had while living in LA. Its romantic and quaint atmosphere is perfect for a date or just a snack in solitude.
