Trendy Italian restaurant from an acclaimed husband-&-wife team highlighting creative seasonal fare.


Why go? Bestia is a chef-driven multi-regional Italian restaurant in the Arts District in DTLA by Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis. Arguably the best Italian in LA in an awesome converted industrial warehouse space. Trust us, the food is as good as the scene.

What to order? This place has the best charcuterie in Los Angeles; be sure to get that as an antipasti. We also recommend the Alla’nduja Pizza, Cavatelli alla Norcina and Spaghetti Rustichella.

Pipsqueak tip They have added two outdoor patios – which is a perfect spot for the kiddos to enjoy Bestia’s delicious Chocolate Budino Tart. You’ll be eating off their plates for sure! This place can get busy so we suggest early dinner or making a reservation at popular times/ hours.
