Love and Salt is a story that begins with Cafe Pierre, a restaurant birthed by Guy Gabriele in 1977 to bring a taste of France to Los Angeles’ South Bay. While Cafe Pierre was a beloved part of the community for nearly 37 years, in 2014, Guy and his daughter Sylvie Gabriele, now the owner of Love and Salt, closed the restaurant to bring new life to the iconic space.

Love and Salt is a philosophy: that food needs only two ingredients to be great. It’s a sensibility that informs the feeling in the restaurant and the dishes on the menu — Italian-inspired with Southern California soul. An approachable wine list and classic cocktail program similarly reflect the vibrant SoCal setting of the restaurant, located just steps from the Manhattan Beach pier.

    Nice but small portions and very very loud ambience. Food to share good but needs larger portions. Acoustic needs to be fixed.

    The service was great; the salad, pizza and pastas were delicious! We had a few friends in town from Japan and they enjoyed it too:)

    excellent food and good service, just a bit too loud to even talk to others across the table, might want to do something to improve the acoustic inside

    Went here recently since it was a Michelin star. My partner and I have been trying them all. The food here was a disappointment. The vodka pasta shells were severely undercooked. The meatballs. We’re good and pizza was average. Our cocktails also weren’t anything special. The mango spritz I had to send back and order another drink.
