Cal Mare is in the Beverly Center, but it doesn’t really feel like a mall restaurant. First off, it’s actually good. The seafood-heavy menu has house-made pastas, a carbonara pizza that you should absolutely be ordering, and fresh, flavorful fish. That being said, there's nothing particularly cool about the atmosphere - the large space goes heavy on the coastal theme, with lots of turquoise and pictures of fish. Overall, we could see this being a good place for dinner with parents, or for your boss who wants something other than a steakhouse.

Orsa & Winston
Orsa & Winston is an Italian-Japanese restaurant in DTLA that’s just as good for a casual lunch as it is for a special occasion dinner.
Roberta’s has very good pizzas, but hasn’t realized that pizzas are the thing this Culver City spot should stick to.
There’s an overwhelming choice at Amalfitano Bakery in Rancho Palos Verdes, but we’d focus on this Italian bakery’s cannoli.
Suggested by our writers
One of LA’s finest Italian restaurants, Osteria Mozza in Hollywood is still very much at the top of its game.
Connie And Ted’s
Connie & Ted’s used to be the most popular restaurant in LA. Now it’s just a neighborhood spot, and so much better because of it.
