This is my favorite restaurant in Venice. The octopus and calamari are always perfect. I have unrealistically high expectations for this restaurant because I get to eat here only one or two times a year. Each time it exceeds my expectations. Don't miss this gem.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
