• Italian • Santa Monica
Booked 21 times today
Growing up in Italy, my family cooked at home and had the most extraordinary experiences with ingredients grown in our backyard, paired with the wines my chef/restaurateur stepfather would bring back from regions throughout Italy. I fell in love with food as a child watching my stepfather, once nominated a top chef in Italy, work in restaurant kitchens and floors. Moving to California in 1991 and subsequently to Santa Monica and experiencing the Farmers Market inspired me to start Orto - Italian for “vegetable garden” - where I meld local ingredients and organic herbs grown here at the restaurant to create traditional Italian recipes. At our bar you’ll find a cocktail list created from fresh herbs and premium spirits, and our wine list focuses on sustainable and organic producers.You’ll often find my wife and kids in the restaurant, continuing the culinary legacy of our Italian family. We welcome you with open arms and hope you’ll join us to experience our restaurant.Andre

With influences like Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary’s Fish Camp in New York, Oysterette serves lunch and dinner seven days a week with a menu straight out of the seafood shacks you find on the East Coast. Chunky, overflowing lobster rolls, buckets of steamed clams in broth so flavorful that bread demands to be dunked, clam chowder, mussels in broth, ceviche, and raw shellfish so fresh you can smell the ocean. Filling the void in the Westside restaurant scene for a casual, beachy, seafood restaurant and buzzing neighborhood vibe appealing to both surfers and studio heads.

    We went here on Monday night for dinner and the restaurant was very busy, I strongly recommend making reservations. We showed up early for our reservation so we hung out at the bar, and had some delicious drinks. They also serve mocktails for anyone who chooses to not drink alcohol. Once we were seated for our reservation, they provided us with friendly service and the food turned out incredible. We ordered the whipped eggplant (a must order item if you’re visiting this restaurant for the first time), the roasted potatoes and the spicy vodka pasta. Everything was cooked perfectly and the portions were very filling. The ambience of the restaurant was lively, while family friendly at the same time.
