On the recommendation of the desk man at Venice Breeze, we took the short walk away from the Beach to Barrique, at once intimate and frenetic. We were seated promptly and treated to excellence personal service from the proprietor Tony Black. We asked for some...More

From the filet mignon to the branzino and the amazing beet pasta, this authentic Italian restaurant made from a former home rocks Main Street in Venice! The food is on the expensive side, but is REALLY good. The atmosphere is cozy and they even have...More

It was hard to find the restaurant. The sign was not well lit. If you cannot walk stairs this is not the place for you. You eat upstairs. Gets crowded and noisy. They use real candles that add to the smoky room along with the...More

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
