  • Restaurant recommendations in Santa Monica / Marina Del Rey

    I mostly lurk around here, but I’m hoping you micechatters can help me out. I’ve lived in Southern California for only a few years and in the Inland Empire, so I rarely get out to the coast. I needed a getaway, so my husband booked a room in Marina Del Rey Saturday night. We’re also meeting up with a friend in Santa Monica.

    Any recommendations for somewhere to eat? I’m not really a burger type of person; I love really good food and also local specialties. Suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    I used to work in Santa Monica.

    There's a little Italian place on Ocean Park Blvd. I love called Il Forno. They have both indoor and outdoor seating.

      A better Italian place is C&O
      I've only been to the cucina - http://www.cocucina.com/
      But there's also a trattoria - http://www.cotrattoria.com/
      Both are in Marina Del Rey and the garlic rolls are TO DIE FOR.

      Good morning, son
      In twenty years from now
      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
      And I can tell you 'bout today
      And how I picked you up and everything changed
      It was pain
      Sunny days and rain
      I knew you'd feel the same things...

                    Thanks for all the great suggestions, now I wish I had more than a day and a half. I can't eat at all of these places in one day!

                      True.
                      Don't get me wrong - Il Forniao's GREAT! Esp. their sandwiches and salads at lunchtime. Mmmm. We used to get them all the time at work.
                      C & O is better and isn't a chain, though.
