    Come ready for dessert. And for pre-dessert, try the mushroom fries, meatballs, and lamb shank. Their dessert display is heavenly, and they had my fav wine too :)

    Carb central – but totally worth it! This lively, fun and New York like eatery has the best pastries in town – the selection of French macaroons are to die for! -Herschel

    Beautiful desserts! They are definitely tempting and attractive. Cocktails options are nice. A variety of small plates, salads and Italian dishes are available.

    Truffle pizza was really delicious, it tastes different than any other pizza, Modena Salad was overrated, their hamburger was really yummy and juicy i forgot what pasta was this but its tastes okay

    Awesome eatery, french food in a friendly atmosphere. Great bakery by the entrance. I am not a macaroon fan, but they looked great

    Macarons here are are absolutely, insanely good. I'm a huge fan of Pierre Hermes, and haven't been able to find macarons that match theirs until today. Bottega Louie FTW (all flavors are fabulous)

    Get there when they open at 6:30 on weekdays and you can sometimes have the place to yourself. Read more

    Lovely desserts and macrons. Take them to go if you are full, won't regret. I promise 🤓

    Downtown environment and scrumptious food. While you wait, you can watch the chefs prepare food right before your eyes. Order an espresso, and don't leave without a box of truffles!

    I always get top notch service here and good food. Just don't go here if you want quiet dining...the LA Times ranked them as one of toe noisiest dining spots in town-which I would not disagree with

    Pleasantly surprised. Recommend Napoli pizza, Portobello fries w/ basic garlic sauce are fantastic. Chocolate souffle is divine, but please allow 20min for preparation. Don't forget the Macarons!

    One of the loudest and noisiest places i've ever been to. Food is really great, including the Pizza but don't count on making a normal conversation. Prices are OK, compared to the quality of the food

    I could just eat the bread and butter, but the lemon ricotta pancakes are good too.

    Great window watching in bar area. You can order full menu and desserts at the bar and avoid the acoustically enhanced main dining area.

    Mussels very good. Scampi very very good. Linguini clam, overcooked, washy but edible. Chef too generous with garlic. You don't need as much to cook italian :) generally speaking is worth the trip!

    Trenne Pasta & Portobello fries!! Can't go wrong. You'll have left overs from the trenne and it makes a great lunch the next day.

    The portobello mushroom fries and the carbonara ❤️ very casual. Good for groups 👍🏻

    Great environment for brunch. The ricotta pancakes and salmon benedict are phenomenal. Don't forget a side of roasted potatoes.

    Nestled on the chaotic corner of Grand Avenue and 7th Street in downtown Los Angeles, Bottega Louie really knows how to enchant, intrigue, and satisfy the palate.

    If you don't feel like sitting down for a full meal (or if you can't get a table), just sit in the bar area and grab some well-crafted cocktails and macarons!

    Make sure to order the chocolate souffle, A MUST, when you order your entrees as well so you can have dessert without waiting for the preparation time!

    Hands down the best brunch I've had in LA. A little pricey, but well worth it. Can't wait to have dinner here, which I've heard is also incredible.

    They don't take reservations so be ready to wait a little while at the restaurant. You can check out the macaroons and other desserts though while you wait.

    Wear ear plugs because the marble makes the acoustics bad and wear sunglasses because it's too bright but perfect espresso, perfect little Italian desserts in a nice restored downtown building.
