Potions have become 1/3 if what they used to be while prices rise. Waitress takes your drink order and isn’t back till dessert and checks. Food is still good but spent $120 to leave hungry after three tiny pasta dishes. Wtf?
Food is always good but this time service was terrible. Very slow and needed follow up to get food delivered
Food was excellent but we were really disappointed with our table. We even indicated on our reservation that it was a birthday.
The food, service and atmosphere are great. Happy with Bestia being our last dining experience for the near-term...
Waitress set the tone for the dinner, a negative one. Very inflexible and no common sense. Clam pizza was burned and terrible. Lobster was meh. Dungeness crab spaghetti was good.
One of the best dining experiences in LA, every dish was fantastic, great vibe, loved the open kitchen, service on point, great dessert selection, 100% all around
I enjoyed it
I have been wanting to try this place for a while and I'm so glad I did! I made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday with his parents. We tried a lot of dishes including the bone marrow, gem salad, cavatelli alla norcina, spaghetti rustichella, and margherita pizza. The bone marrow was amazing mixed in with the pasta it comes with. The gem salad was really refreshing. I preferred the cavatelli taste more than the spaghetti, especially with the shaved truffle, though both are great. The crab with spaghetti is a nice balance. We finished with the budino tarte and coffee and donuts. The budino is a little bitter while the coffee and donuts is sweeter and cinnamony, so depends on your taste which you would like more. Overall, would definitely go here again! The only drawback is it is a little pricey.
Amazing! I was wondering why everyone raves about this, but you just have to go. We did a bottle of their Barbera, the squid ink salad, musrhoom pasta, mussels, Sausage pizza, and veal tartare. it was incredible. go and savor every bite.
Excellent food!.... Service is top notch, management is without equal... Best place in town... Can't wait to get back to that place!!!!
Love this place
WOW! To begin, we were attentively seated as requested, “dine in with a beautiful view”. My plus one and I had the option of sitting in front of the pizza making, the meat cutting or regular seating. We opted for by the pizza! I would like to begin by saying our server Jennifer was far more than attentive, she was super friendly and very knowledgeable on everything from the food to the cognac! I tried the cucumber speciality drink and my friend had the old fashioned. The drink I had included olive oil which I was not too crazy about - I wanted to have this drink without the oil but I was told it was already pre-made so it couldn’t be served without it. This is when I asked for Hennessy and Jennifer was able to bring me a different option of cognac. Long story shot I had 3 shots in total on this night. It was very delicious and I was happy there was an alternative. For the main dishes - my friend has the veal toast, pork belly and some green pasta. We shared a margherita pizza which was so delicious! Perfectly made. I had the crab pasta which I was not fond of. The onion seeds over power the dish with the black licorice taste that I did not like. My server noticed I did not eat the dish so she made sure to ask if there was anything wrong. I simply stated that I did not like the onion seeds. My friend simply LOVED everything she ordered especially the pork belly. I got a glimpse of the wagyu and this is the dish that I will be returning to Bestia to try! I can’t stress how amazing the service is, A+++.
It was a bit too loud in there. The service was exceptional. I loved 3 out of the 4 dishes, but pricing is a bit expensive. Due to the price, I can only eat here once in a while. I cannot wait to come back if the opportunity ever presents itself.
