Everything about this experience was 5 star! The fillet mignon was absolutely delectable and the lemon pepper sauce that accompanied it was the best I’ve ever tasted. Likewise for the gnocchi and octopus salads. A slice of Rome in Hermosa Beach!
We love Simone and Chris! They are always so happy and friendly. We have our own favorite dishes there and if you don’t get your order just how you like it they make up for it! We will keep going back it is so great!
The best in town!!!
Gnocchi is unbelievably delicious! Great service!
Absolutely love this place! The food is delicious but the portions are really really small for the price.
Amazing food and service and fabulous outdoor setting.
Too much salty food
I am so excited to see Sosta Cucina open on Pier in Hermosa. Wonderful, authentic italian food, delicious wine and superb service!
Very limited menu. No non-alcoholic drinks other than water. Small portions considering the price
Best AUTHENTIC Italian food in the South Bay.
Anything else is a replica.
We had an amazing time. The food was delicious and what we loved most was the slow style of the courses. The waiter was not rushing us onto the next course or rushing us out. It was awesome and we can’t wait to come back for another special occasion.
Had high hopes…. Wanted it to be above and beyond but unfortunately it was just ok. We had a couple of appetizers and 3x sea bass main course.
Excellent food, excellent service! Always perfect
Best ribeye inn the So Bay! Love this place, one our favorites in Hermosa Beach. Service and food is always exceptional. Highly recommend.
Food and wine are insanely overpriced and the portions are TINY!! I went home hungry and ate leftovers. The wait staff is ambivalent at best ... and the restaurant does not even serve soft drinks for children and other patrons who don’t want to drink just water or wine. Never going back.
Great food, great ambience, great service. Will go back.
I had not eaten there before and wanted a nice place to take my wife and family for Mother's Day. The menu was simple but covered the needs of the four of us in different ways. Buffalo Mozzarella was delicious, and my Ribeye w very big and perfectly cooked. I will go back again for certain.
Mother’s Day dinner. Everything was superb. The food is really wonderful- really high quality ingredients, prepared simply & authentically for perfect Italian food. Waiters are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They gave us a complimentary tiramisu for Mother’s Day- it was divine. Menu is short and changes frequently, wine list short and very affordable with great Italian wines. Love this place. A local gem.
Amazing as always!
Delicious food, great table - wonderful service
So glad Sosta is back in Hermosa. Best service and the food is great. The pasta is made fresh. Italian dishes that are hard to find are available. And the service is outstanding
Excellent food, excellent service. Wish there were kids options.
This place is so cute. Small and quaint, but with a really good vibe. Much like the locale itself, the menu is also small, but the food is delicious. We had the tuna tartare and the mixed salad to start. Then moved on to the gnocchi al Gorgonzola and the gnocchi w lobster. These two dishes are not to be missed! So good! Then we shared a Tagliata di Manzo which we could not finish because we were already kinda full from the gnocchi and the appetizers, but packed it to go. 😉
Paired all this with the Luizzi Barbera D’Asti and it went perfectly with our food choices. We had a very good first experience at Sosta and will definitely be going back.
We ate outside in late March 2021. FANTASTIC FOOD! We were very excited to go out to fine dining. My wife thought the plates were slightly small, but I personally had no problem with that as I had heard that in advance and it allowed me to order several different dishes. Our service was very good as well; we had a nice table off on the side of the outdoor seating. It surpassed my high expectations! Great dinner
I’m assuming it was due to COVID, but the options available were slim, repetitive (two of the same pasta dish one with clams and one another seafood), and portions small. There were no sides offered and no vegetables in the main dishes. I won’t be going back. Service and taste of the food was fine. We drove through fast food on the way home.
Charming outdoor seating arrangement with excellent food. Service was good; with great recs being made by our server. Delicious pastas, steak, and dessert.
Sosta is the best authentic Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. Incredible food, ambience, service and wine.
My fiancé and I had our first date at the original restaurant on Manhattan Ave in 2013 then followed them to every location over the years. Until tonight everything that a establishment could do wrong they somehow managed. From poor service, poor food selection and quality and to being flat out rude we will never go again. We’re wondering if it’s a new owner because the people that used to run it were so amazing and now it’s really bad.
This little restaurant is AMAZING. I’m so glad I found it. I absolutely love Italian food and this is some of the best pasta that I’ve had anywhere, including Italy! Literally the best carbonara I’ve ever had, and the tiramisu is to DIE FOR. The tiramisu is light and creamy, not too rich and just the perfect amount of espresso, last fingers. I only intended to take one bite and save the rest and I couldn’t help myself, it was all gone. Thankfully I only live a few blocks away from this gem, I plan to go here every week and get to know the sweet Italian man (family?) that runs this place. So yummy and I’m so happy to support a small local business.
Such a great vibe. Great music playing, excellent service and amazing food!
Sosta and Co have been a part of my family tradition for almost 20 years. Whether it be family; clients, or friends the experience and quality of food are amazing. In spite of the adversarial conditions of covid, Luca and his staff provide some of the best food and service in the city. The lobster gnocchi is to die for....The wine pairings are exceptional and value driven as well. Culinary and service artistes.
Best Italian in the South Bay by far
Absolutely outstanding! From the food to the service to the ambiance - everything was fabulous. We will definitely be going back. If you're looking for authentic, delicious Italian - look no further!
Luca is great. Food simple but tasty. Place is lovely. Especially the back.
Uní pasta is my favorite. Squash Blossoms Is excellent.
The staff was nice but forgetful. The food was not that great, I ordered the black truffle pasta at MP and I expected something pretty magnificent but it was an extremely small portion, very oil and it barely tasted like truffle anything. Not that impressed this time, I ate here years ago and my experience was much better.
Food was good but the service and the attitude was not pleasant.
Luca, Simon and the entire team continue to provide beautiful food, wine, conversation and service despite the pandemic. They have adapted their restaurant to meet the safety and distancing demands, and in doing so, may have even made it a better experience with the outdoor space!
The food is fantastic, and we will be back, but we had a very difficult time getting seated. It was my husbands birthday, I had made a reservation a week prior indicating as such, we got there and were told we had to wait for out table. There were other tables available, but we were not allowed to sit at them because the computer had our name on one table only. We explained it was a birthday and we had a reservation which the waiter disputed and he finally proved to himself. Then, we said simply switch our name on to the other available table on the computer which they refused to do. It was so odd! So we waited until the only table we were allowed to sit at became available!
Always amazing and love the gnocchi!
