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!

This is our neighborhood Italian place and we feel super lucky to have it nearby. We've tried a wide range of their menu items, and with the exception of the red sauce, which seemed a bit "ketchup-y," everything else has been outstanding. The service is warm and friendly and prompt, and the wine list is pretty good, for a restaurant of this size and price range. Highly recommended.

Great food. I had a seafood pasta and an Alsace white wine. I take visitors who grew up in Europe to Bottle Inn and they find it familar, a pleasant Southland surprise.

Food was scrumptious! Service was excellent! Perhaps a little too noisy/energetic for me as well as pricey but the food was well worth it - good for special occasions.

It had ben years since I had been to the Bottle Inn.. Now I need to make a habit. I was in the area and pulled up OpenTable for a late (9pm) table last minute. So glad I did. It is more of a "local" place feel with everyone making you feel welcome. The Fried Cheese for the appetizer was perfection. I am craving it as I type this. I had the Chicken and Cheese Ravioli and my husband had the lobster and crab pasta.. Everything was fresh and very homemade.. Ok nothing anywhere can be perfect.. I was expecting the Limonchello Cake to be denser, but the frosting was perfection... I will be back!

Our waiter Dan was extensive knowledgeable of the menu and was very friendly! The food was perfect, fast service but it didn’t feel like they were trying to rush us out, and its a gorgeous place. A highlight of my food-based LA trip!

We have always tremendously enjoyed the Bottle Inn! The atmosphere is so appropriate for people to enjoy talking with one another! SO many other restaurants have high ceilings that cause noise to be exaggerated. And they play very LOUD music. BOTTLE INN IS A TREASURE when you want to visit with your good friends!!

Not only being a restaurant that can be truly enjoyed by by the diners, THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT. The plates are presented very nicely. The choice if wines is SUPERB! And the desserts....WOW! It we had the time and $$$ we would be at Bottle Inn EVERY night!

If we could give it SIX stars...we would!

The food was amazing!! The service seemed like we were the only customers !
I took my 88 year old mom who eats like a bird and she ate her whole plate of lobster fettuccine! She said she could not stop! It was the best lunch she has ever had! No left overs!

Service was terrific even though the restaurant was quite busy. Food was inconsistent- risotto was very good but pasta, salad and other dishes were fair at best

I have a gluten allergy and it is difficult to go out with friends especially to an Italian Restaurant. The waiter know what I could eat and the food was amazing. I can't wait to go back.

We love this well established restaurant on Hermosa Beach.
Jeff and Sandra did everything they could to make our dining experience memorable.
This is definitely a go to restaurant when we are in the area.
The Calamari, Halibut, Pear Salad and pasta dish was spot on.
Like I said above everything was 5 stars ⭐️

It’s been different since new ownership. Miss some of the old food items. We have never had to pay a corking fee and have been dining there for over 15 years. With the new owner they charge $30 for first bottle and $40 for second. We were not told of this by the manager when he sat us. The waitress even asked if we were told when I showed her the bill. I would have just bought wine if I had known.

The food was good and so was the wine, but the kitchen got very backed up and the food came out very slowly. Also my order got screwed up a bit. Overall, it was a good evening but could stand for some improvement.

We live in Hermosa Beach and have heard on numerous occasions that we should try the Bottle Inn and for some reason we have never gotten around to it. Well for my wife's birthday I wanted to take her out but did no want to leave the confides for the South Bay. So finally we tried the Bottle Inn. We will now be dining there much more... we loved the food and the service was very very good as well.

Looking forward to many more meals at a new favorite.

Perfect dinner. Service and food was terrific. Very glad we choose the bottle inn to celebrate our daughters engagement. Lasting memories. Fish and pasta along with two desserts made the evening something our family will always remember. We have been eating at the bottle inn for well over 30 years and are looking forward to our next dinner there. I’m

We love going to the Bottle Inn. We've been there probably 12 times in the past 2 years. So when our wedding anniversary was coming up I made a reservation, but I forgot to specify that I wanted outdoor seating for the sunset view. The manager was kind enough to bail me out of the doghouse with my wife and got us a seat outside on the patio. They gave us complimentary champagne when we sat down to helpful celebrate the occasion and they topped the night off with a free desert and more champagne! I can't recommend the Bottle Inn enough.

My order was supposed to be gnocchi with chunky pomodoro, but came with marinara sauce. My date's penne was undercooked (al dente). Otherwise the meal was very good.
