We love the Bottle Inn in Hermosa. Almost like a small neighborhood restaurant and bar. Great patio seating when the weather is good. Noise in the main room can be an issue for us. Our server, however, sat us in the small "wine cave" and everything was perfect.

Love this place. I do enjoy it more when it is less crowded because of the noise level. However, it seems most restaurants today are noisy. Wish American restaurants were more like European restaurants where people talk in"regular" voices instead of yelling. The food and service are impeccable!

Delicious Caesar salad, chicken marsala and rigatoni. Our server Sandra was great, so sweet and really took great care of us. We sat outside, loved the ambience! We will be back Sunday, April 5th. Thank you our new favorite restaurant in Hermosa Beach. See you in a month- April Martinez-Christensen

This is a very loud restaurant. The tables are all very close together along the wall, so there is no privacy. The food was average. Service was slow.

I made my reservations three weeks early using this app and also had requested an excellent table. It was Valentine’s Day and we were just two people, our reservation was held and we had a table but our table was right in the middle of all the chaos. The distance between the two tables was about 2 feet and It was extremely noisy and hard to talk. I wish they would’ve seated us outside since I did request the best table in the house and this was definitely not it.

We love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The meatballs are very flavorful, lemon caper chicken tasty and the chicken like butter. The carbonara was the best. For desert, order the limoncello cake, it will not disappoint. Service was well-timed and friendly, great wine selection.

Fabulous food and service. They took great care of us. It was my husband's bday and they not only gave him a nice large dessert, they also gave him a small bottle of prosecco as a gift. Very sweet of them. You can also dine in the wine cellar which is very fun!

It is not the management's fault but we were seated in the back room next to a table that was literally yelling the entire evening. They were obviously drunk and were having a very inappropriate conversation in a very public way. Unfortunately it absolutely ruined our evening. We could not talk or hear each other and left with a very unfortunate headache. I am not an old buddy dude, but this is not a sportswear during a big game but the other patron were rude and obnoxious.

I have becoming to bottle inn for 40 years
And this will be my last time
The food has gone down hill and the prices have gone way up The new owners changed the menu a lot and certain dishes have been changed dramatically that were signTure dishes i.e. The Vesl Picatta for the worse
The main reason the prices have gone stupid for just ok food and I can afford anything

Had a wonderful meal with thoughtful and excellent service. My only disappointment - no Scalone!!!!! I eat here specifically for that amazing scallop and abalone dish. So disappointed to have flown in from Denver and find it not available. The Lobster and Crab angel hair pasta was excellent - but just not the Scalise!

A fun time with great, great food! An old staple, but they get it right -- which is why everyone keeps coming back! Perfect pastas and sauces, great wine, great attitudes and excellent service. (Did I mention the garlic bread?) For a night out with friends, special occasion or romantic date - you found your 'Italian' place!

Delicious Italian food close to The Strand. Due to noise level we opted to dine outside on a very cold night, however we were seated next to 2 heated lamp and asked if we needed blankets. Having just returned from Italy, food and wine selection was excellent. Due to the cold night, I wished they served mulled wine. We shall return, perfect neighborhood gem, very easy walk on the strand.

There were several birthday celebrations happening, so it was pretty loud. The food was delicious and jus the perfect amount. There were four of us and we shared the artichoke and brussel sprouts to start. The special salad of burrata and pear was delicious! We shared the Sea Bass in the butter lemon caper sauce with the most wonderful roasted carrots and garlic potatoes. Finally, ended it all with the bread pudding and creme brûlée for the table. Wonderful!
