Felix is an Italian restaurant blending the traditional recipes of Italy with fresh ingredients from California's best local farms. Felix is not the name of the owner or chef, as many people believe. Instead, Felix is Latin for "lucky or "happy" and encompasses the kind of family friendly, upbeat atmosphere guests will enjoy when they stop in for a meal.
Felix's menu is essentially what an Italian cook would come up with if he was surrounded by the ingredients native to California. After a quick look at Felix's menu diners will see items like a brisket pomodoro with onion and peperocinni peppers, swordfish with lemon leaf and salsa verde and even an oxtail ragu napoletana topped with mozzarella. Naturally, there is an extensive wine list to accompany the menu, so diners can enjoy a fine Italian wine to pair with their meal.
Felix is an incredible Italian restaurant and one of the nicer places to grab a bite on Abbott Kinney. Fantastic pasta program (they literally highlight it with a glass room in the center of the space) and drinks — may be hard to get a table but absolutely worth it.
REALLY BIG SPACE. Had dinner w/2 friends recently. 2 of our pasta dishes arrived at the table cold. we were half way done eating the pasta before the third pasta arrived. timing is an issue, probably because they're feeding a lot of diners at once. but that should be their problem, not ours.
