The sauce is maroon in color. Appears to have been cooked to the point of killing the tomato. Much like a well done steak. (According to the staff that's how they do it). I was going to order the charcuterie but after seeing the pizza,...More

Food excellent. Service amazing. Atmosphere amazing - and love Abbot Kinney. Only fault is that the place is so popular that you can lose your table if you're later than 15 minutes after your slot.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
