The pasta was so good! WeThe pasta was so good! We were here for lunch and each of us ordered pasta and we were each delighted by our dishes. Many of the dishes on the menu looked good...so I'm planning to be back soon to try some other dishes.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNorthern Italy in Redondo BeachMy go to restaurant for the wonderful foods I grew up with. Great wines and appetizers for happy hour and wonderful pastas, salads seafood and meat dishes for heavier meals.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT NEIGHBORHOOD FINDI can't recommend Hostaria Piave enough. The owner, Angelo, is friendly and knowledgable and his food is spectacular and authentic! The gnocchi is phenomenal and clearly homemade. Don't come here looking for Southern Italian food, though, because the menu is all refined Northern Italian/Venetian and doesn't have marinara sauce or lasagna anywhere on it. PLUS, the wine list is daunting and impressive. Every aspect of the meals served at this restaurant is perfect and I have yet to find even one item into which the chefs don't pour their hearts.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great wine, but noisyThis is a great spot for Venetian Italian style food, great wine list, etc. The hardwood floors, solid ceiling and walls can make the noise level climb quite high at times.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe're going againMy girlfriend and I ate at Hostaria Piave on a Sunday which is a set menu day. Everything was tasty and pleasantly presented. We would like to go back on a different day of the week to try the full menu. I have a feeling that it would be equally as impressive.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVidi Veni VeniceWe went to the Hostaria Piave's Sunday Prix Fixe last weekend. This was our 2nd trip to the restaurant. They did not disappoint. I will rarely order Salmon, as I am more of Lamp, Pork, Beef person. But I wanted to see how the restaurant wold do. I was delighted with the out come.
Owner Angelo Calderan was very attentive and assisted my wife in selecting a wine that pair perfectly with the fish.
Hint... The guy knows his wines - you'd be foolish not to take his advice.
Even more so, if you've not yet tried this little gem... Well... That's being foolish.
Just go, eat, and be happy.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but friendly local bistroAttention South Bay food fans - Hostaria Piave has arrived with a Venetian Italian menu and a great Italian wine list to soothe your palate when you have a hankering for a trip to the Veneto region without leaving the confines of our Beach Cities stomping ground. The pastas are freshly-made on the premises with both a primi or entree size. We had the sea scallops seared with fresh peas and mint as an appetizer and split a pasta with fruita de mare for a primi. Then on to a fabulous grilled bone-in veal chop. If you have room for dessert, you can order it too, but home-baked cookies, served compliments of the restaurant are delivered to your table when you ask for the check. Noise level was loud, but outside seating is available.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meals for our groupGreat meals for our group of four. Not your run of the mill Italian restaurant. Fresh pastas made with a Venetian accent. Nightly specials that rock. The owner is on the premises and his wife is the sommelier. Awesome find in the south bay.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVenice comes to RedondoWhat a delight to find a restaurant of this caliber on the way home from work.
It took us quite by surprise, and we couldn't be more pleased.
Portion size was perfect, flavors were fabulous, staff was sensational, and price was well within reason.
We loved everything we tried.
