    The place is a meat lover's paradise. Unique flavors, unique cuts, and lots of precise care. Tiny place so all seats are good, but worth trying the bar. Also focaccia is excellent. Unlike any I've had

    The Bistecca alla Fiorentina would make grown carnivores cry. The house charcuterie is fantastic while other dishes like the bone marrow pie defy any person's sense of moderation. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Best new restaurant winner 2013. Eat this: braised lamb neck in jus, beef and bone marrow pot pie, house-cured salumi. No reservation? Wait for seats at the bar & chef Colby may serve you personally. Read more

    The massive steaks, dry-aged in house and grilled to perfection, are the epitome of beef. Order a bottle of fantastic wine and you'll be ensured a legendary meal. Read more

    Everything is good!!! The octopus melt in your mouth, so does the mashed potato! The focaccia is a must and to finish it with a flourish...the Budino!

    Fantastic experience! HIGHLY recommend sitting at bar where you can chat with the chefs! Highlights include any & all meats (cured & cooked), roasted cauliflower, calamari & bacon wrapped sweetbreads.

    Holy beefsteak! A most delicious Bistek Florentine! Better than any I had in Tuscany, and we've had a few! The focaccia is a must try dish.

    Enjoy some of L.A.’s best charcuterie, and let whiffs of the wood-burning oven stir your appetite—you’ll want room for the rosemary-spiked olive oil cake.

    Fish or Steak you can't go wrong either way. On the meat side I recommend the Pork Chop, Short Rips, & the cured meats.

    Incredible cured meats, cured on the premises, the best focaccia I've ever had by far, and awesome meats in general.

    The focaccia di recca is the most inexpensive (and best) thing on the menu.

    The pork chop is 98% fat. The meat that was left was great, but three people only got one bite of meat each. For the price, disappointing. Everything else, including the staff, was great.
