Italian Restaurant
$$
“IF you are looking for a really nice night out.. Bestia is a place to have an incredible dining experience. It's a meat-driven rustic Italian restaurant located in the heart of the Arts District. They cook fantastic Neapolitan-style pizzas, inventive pastas, house made salumi (a true rarity in LA), and large plates like a great pork chop. Wines and cocktails are top rate, and the desserts from Gergis are simple, but prepared with a perfectionist’s attention to detail. The vibe here is amazing and you can pop over to some of the cool arts district bars after dinner. ”
