Contemporary Italian
We’re a neighborhood restaurant in the historic Washington Building in Downtown Culver City, showcasing wood-fired sourdough pizza grounded in the Neapolitan craft yet embracing an inventive California culinary ethos.

The “Wild” in our name is a nod to the wild yeast we use to prepare our slow-rising sourdough, which serves as the foundation for every pizza we make. Born from a “mother dough” formulated by our executive Chef Tin Vuong, and nurtured by him daily, our sourdough takes days to prepare; and we do it this way for a reason--it simply tastes better. When ready, the sourdough is hand-shaped by our pizzaiolos, topped fresh with local and responsibly-sourced ingredients and then blast-cooked in our wood-burning oven that was built brick-by-brick in Naples, Italy by Stefano Ferrara, a third-generation Neapolitan oven-builder.

Truffle Pizza is always wonderful. Salad and vegetable portions are large. We shared the brussels sprouts, which was delicious. Happy hour wine prices are very reasonable of quality selection.

I went to Wildcraft on a Friday night. I had 6:45pm reservations and was seated right away. I started with the Fries of the moment which were truffle fries in addition to the rosemary bread and they both were delicious. We ordered the fried chicken, a mushroom truffle pizza and a pepperoni pizza as entrees. I really enjoyed this restaurant and will return in the future.

Enjoyed dining on the patio even though it was a rainy evening. We ordered pie of the day to share—thin crusted pizza with mushroom, shredded pork and cheese. Good size for 3 of us. Ordered salad, two pastas (bolonese and cavatappi). Serving size small for those dishes. Finished with cannoli , tasty and nicely presented with a candle to celebrate a birthday.

Joe was a great waiter - attentive and kind to my 86 year old father and great recommendations. Pizza was creative and delish. Oysters - garlic knots - bruschetta. All lovely. Great happy hour pricing!

Would absolutely dine again just for the pizza and the pasta, which were fantastic. Other than that though, the mussels were fine but not my favorite broth and the beet salad had very few beets and they weren’t of the highest quality. Also the service was fairly slow and my grandma told the hostess to tell us that she was at the bar and they didn’t so we were at the table for 15 min not realizing she was already there!

It's not the best place to go for a birthday dinner. The service was mediocre and the food takes a while to come out. Better to just get to-go from here if you like the food.

We ate here prior to a performance at the Kirk Douglas Theater. Love the look and ambience of the restaurant. We ate on the patio. Here are our take-aways: somewhat limited menu; great that there is a happy hour on Saturdays, 5pm-7pm:); Service we received was poor, seemed like we were forgotten about; food was very good. Not sure we will be back because of the service.

In this day and age, I find very few italian places that do not have at least one gluten free option in pasta or pizza, but this place had none. Also, after 15 minutes inhad to flag down a waiter since none came on their own.

The food was outstanding. Each dish we ordered was better than the last. We did however have to wait for over 30 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. The service was OK but not notable. Our server never asked if we wanted beverage refills even when our glasses were only left with ice. If the rating was based on food alone it would be a 5 star review.

The service overall was good, only a little slow at times. The brussels sprouts were good, but not the best. I prefer when they are whole or cut in half and these were shredded. I got the Burrata pie which I felt was better the next days as leftovers. It was a little salty and pretty heavy.

Do NOT GO to this restaurant. Period. The refused the Open Table printed reservation, made not effort to address the issue, and the staff was terrible. The menu is a lie- nothing on Open Table was listed or offered. The tables are small, unpleasant, and smell. Hey, this place is horrible.

Wildcraft feels authentic and unique, which can be a relief in a world full of corporate franchises. The atmosphere is a bit noisy indoors but they offer a patio - particularly inviting on balmy Summer nights. The food is tasty and well presented. The service friendly-hip. It’an impressive place without trying too hard.

Who knew? It was a Dine LA menu and my husband ordered different things and shared bites of each. It wasn't too loud. The waitperson was completely lovely: warm, took pleasure in advising us, was patient, had great explanations for items on the menu we wanted to know more about. Pinot Noir was delish.

WildCraft is a hip-ish bar with good service, the decent price of drinks for Culver City, and tasty food that's not spectacular, but solid. Its happy hour has a good selection of appetizers and the cost of drinks are about $6 - 12 per glass. Service was great considering we were there during a busy period. The staff seems very friendly and quite knowledgeable about wine, beer, and cocktail. The place is perfect for a casual meal with friends or even co-workers. I'll definitely return.

We started with the garlic knots(excellent) and the avocado toast. We shared the following-the pasta bolognese and the special pasta in a kale pesto, the prawns, the burrata pizza and the beet salad. though they were good, I would not order the Prawns and the Kale Pesto again. The pasta bolognese, the Burrata Pizza and the beet salad were excellent. The service was excellent as well. We sat outside, which was perfect because the weather was nice and it was quieter than inside which seemed a bit loud with music, tv, and people...Outside was better for conversation.

Every item we ordered as recommended by the waitress tasted as if it was missing an ingredient. Except for the pizza, the food was just plain bland. The server was unenergetic and literally threw the plates down on the table (which was embarrassing). Will never come back just because of that experience. The buratta was probably the only dish that was actually good, but it came with two small pieces of grilled bread cut into four even smaller pieces. I asked for extra bread. It came 10-15 minutes later. A $3.50 extra charge and by then we were already done. I hate places like this that are full of themselves without earning it. What a disappointment.
