We had a great time dining at The Bottle Inn. Besides the amazing service the food was spectacular. The ambient of the restaurant is cozy and welcoming.
It was our first time dining at the restaurant and Abel the manager gave us a delicious tiramisu and cappuccino on the house. Definitely will go back to try other dishes.

We had a party of eight for an early evening dinner at the Bottle Inn in Hermosa Beach. Our table was ready on arrival and we were positioned in a very nice spot within the restaurant. Our server, MaryLou, was outstanding. She reviewed the specials, opened our wine and then let us have some time to settle in before pressing us for our order. We enjoyed multiple appetizers - all of them were excellent, especially the calamari and the baked mozzarella. Dinner selections varied among the group and everyone enjoyed their meal - special mention was given to the Rigatoni E Pollo Bascilico (an incredibly delicious sauce) and the Lasagna. We unfortunately did not sample any of the desserts. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience featuring great food and great service and a relaxed and unrushed meal. Highly recommended!

Besides the overall exceptional ambiance, in particular the staff couldn’t have been better. Very accommodating, cheerful and actually the word endearing comes to mind from the restaurant host as we entered to the house manager coming out as we were leaving thanking us for coming. Could not have been happier with our dining experience at The Bottle Inn❤️

The starters were excellent. We very much enjoyed the calamari and baked cheese. The pesto gnocchi was amazing. The raviolis were excellent. However, two of us order the fresh catch of the day. We were not at all impressed. It was over done and seemed that the plates were kept in an oven while they were preparing the other dishes for our table. Our fish took forever to be served after everyone else at our table already had their food. Or perhaps they put the dishes in the oven to try to cook them faster because they forgot?! And the fish was served with over cooked spinach and sweet carrots. Not remotely impressive.
And it was incredibly awkward that everyone else was waiting for our food so they could start eating. I would stick with ordering pasta dishes as they were all very good!

We had high hopes for this place. We had scheduled this dinner to celebrate and had gotten seated right away. Our waitress recommended the meatballs which were FANTASTIC! Then our main entree's came out. My partner ordered the salmon dish which came highly recommended. Sadly the very FIRST bite my partner pulled out a long black piece of hair from the dish. The worst part is the food stuck to the hair which clearly showed the hair had been cooked in the dish. Not only did we loose our appetite but the surrounding tables who saw my parter pull out the hair from his month lost theres. This was just such a bummer from a place that came so highly recommended.

This is by far my favourite Italian restaurant. Everything on the menu is excellent. The restaurant feels so cozy and intimate when you walk in and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Every time my husband and I dine here, we leave feeling pampered and well fed. Which is why we bring all of our out of town guests with us so that they can experience the vibe for themselves. Whether you are dressed to the nines or beach casual, you will always feel welcome at the Bottle Inn. I highly recommend this restaurant.
