Day 10 - La Bottega, West Los Angeles

If you're ever in the mood for just a quiet evening at the neighborhood trattoria, then La Bottega Marino is your place.

Parking: Street parking and a lot in back with meters, free after 6 or 7p (double check the signs!)

Reservations: Not required

Ambience: You feel like you're inside a deli, a wine shop and grandma's kitchen all at once. You sit among crates of wine, shelves of fine Italian imports and a glass display of fine cheeses, cured meats and tiramisu.

Food: The pasta's fantastic. I recommend the Linguine Bottega, sans chicken for those who don't eat meat. It's a classic Italian menu, but everything is prepared with quality and passion.
