Hostaria Piave Ratings and Reviews
So disappointed with our experience at this restaurant. We picked it because of positive reviews and $$ moderate prices and it was within walking distance of where we were staying. Well only the walking distance proved to be true. Only one out of our party of six was happy with their main dish. I ordered the Carbonara. My first attempt to take a bite was met with the entire bowl of pasta raising off the dish as one large clump! I asked the waiter to take a look and he said " this is fresh pasta, not the kind of dry pasta you get in a store" . I told him I have travelled all over northern Italy and eaten "fresh" past too many times to count and never had this type of experience. The owner did come over and looked at my plate and said he was going to have them remake the dish. The new dish was properly cooked and tasted as anticipated. The others in the party were equally unimpressed with they pasta dishes as well. Two in the party had wide noodles with calamari that was so spicy that they could not taste the calamari. Our moderately priced restaurant ended up costing over $50 per person for pasta, three beers and two glasses of Cabernet, total. Hopefully for the owner, the staff and chefs just had a bad night. We will not return- there are too many other options in the area.
We are regular patrons of Hostria Piave. Great Northern Italian food in a lovely place. We have eaten here many times and the food and service is always terrific. Angelo greets us with the Italian two-cheek kiss and gives us the same table each time if available. He knows what wine to serve and has not been wrong yet. They have both small and full portions so you can order to your level hunger. You can eat inside or on their patio. We will be back again soon.
The food was good. Our service, however, was not, and we were overcharged on our bill. Our server was just not very good, especially considering the prices. We explained that one of our guests was gluten free, and he had no idea what that meant, even though they advertise Gluten free pasta is available in big letters on the menu. He took our younger kids drink order, they both ordered a coke. About 5 minutes later they asked about their drinks, he said he had one coke coming, they could share. Apparently you only had one coke in the restaurant on a Friday night. Really? Then my daughter ordered the risotto. At that point he told us they were out of several items on the menu (he should have alerted us to this when we sat down). Then we asked if they could just make spaghetti with pesto and chicken for her. He said this was Northern Italian and didn't have pesto. The only other item she wanted was the steak, so I reluctantly let her order it (wasn't thrilled about going from a $20 pasta to $37 steak). Lo and behold, when the steak, which was overcooked, came out, it was served with pesto! Our waters also sat empty most of the night. When our bill came, we were charged $32 for the chicken dish, on the menu it is $27. I noticed this on my way out, but at that point just wanted to leave. I would not recommend this restaurant.
How did this restaurant make it on the top 100 list of top restaurants in the nation for foodies? We booked last minute and every time slot was open on a Friday night. We should have known. Food was horrible. I had to send my entree back. I ordered the swordfish. It was not edible. I tried!
Overall, pretty mediocre experience. Food was good, but nothing really stood out and was quite expensive for portions provided. Ambiance and service were subpar, at times being a little cold and apathetic. Only thing I would recommend this restaurant for is grabbing a drink on a date.
Eating Gluten Free in an Italian restaurant can be a challenge. Not here though- my carefully selected menu choices were perfectly executed. Presentations were beautiful. I had the filet medallions. The filets, mushrooms and potatoes were cooked to perfection. The radicchio, watercress, romaine salad was perfectly dressed and desserts we selected were both great too. Gluten free almond cake- Torta di mandorle- was light, yet flavorful And the pan Scott's with pomegranate seeds was light and flavorful. Great menu. Great restaurant.
It's authentic northern Italian crusine, so don't expect any red sauce. We had 5 different dishes between the two of us. Four were outstanding. The flavor combinations on one the seafood dishes (with cod, mussels, clams) just didn't work for either of us. Nevertheless, we expect to go back as the overall quality and value was high. Service was also very good.
We always enjoy ourselves here and it is the go-to restaurant that has things on the menu for everyone. The staff is always on top of things and friendly.Because the food is cooked to order this is not a place to go when you are in a rush. This is a neighborhood gem!
The food was ok. They make no allowance for customer preferences. We inquired about the possibility of extra garlic. The manager said they don't use garlic. In an Italian restaurant! What's worse is he showed no desire to accommodate us with this small request. No "I'm sorry". Nothing. Rather cold & prickly. The waitress took 30 minutes to notice us only because I flagged her down.
This was my first time at Hostaria Piave and it was wonderful. I went with my girlfriends to celebrate two birthdays and we all chose a different dish and they were all very tasty. Two girls were from Manhattan Beach and three from Palos Verdes so we met half way and will be back!
What a meal! Hostaria Piave serves up authentic northern Italian fare in a cute little space, and features a truly impressive wine list. Unfortunately our meal was marred by substandard, borderline incompetent service. It's no exaggeration to say that every time she came to our table, she had to apologize for something! Forgotten items, lack of utensils, delivering the wrong wine, it went on and on. And while the apologies were nice, we would have much preferred a meal where they were not necessary. There are many other wonderful Italian restaurants in the area, so I'm not sure we'll be back here given the consistent service lapses that defined our experience.
We went on Saturday night, 10/15/16. It took 50 minutes to be served some bread, 70 minutes to get our starters and another 45 minutes to get the entrees, which should have been left in the kitchen or thrown in the trash. No apologies from the waitress, the owner, or the owner's wife.
Food was just ok. Saw that it was selected as one of top 100 restaurants in country. I don't get it. Baked chicken was dry. I asked for a side dish as an appetizer and was told no. However, the side dishes were delivered first so it was an appetizer. The food took 35 minutes to get to the table but the restaurant was empty. Water was never served. It was a bit pricey for Redondo. I would not go back.
A fabulous unique Italian experience since the authentic cuisine and the owner are from the Veneto region of Italy. There are not only fish dishes like you would expect from Venice, but also a good representation of dishes from the forest (wild boar, venison, rabbit) in the style from the mountains of the north Veneto. And the pasticcio is outstanding, rich and savory, as are all the pasta dishes that have a very northern Italian flare. The proprietor and his wife are generous with their attention to how your evening is going and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The wine list is extensive and most regions of Italy are well represented. We have been there for dinner many times and have always been pleased and impressed. There is excellent parking beside and behind the restaurant.
We went for a Saturday lunch for our first visit and enjoyed it very much. There is a nice patio seating area but we opted for a table inside. I noticed another OT review that mentioned that fresh bread need not be overly toasted but I saw it differently - it was fresh but was warmed just right where yes, it was crunchy but I love it that way. Service provided by the owner was cordial yet friendly. I enjoyed my veal and my husband found his Pasticcio Di Mamma Maria to be great comfort food. We will go back before long!
Overpriced and underwhelming. Ordered wine & they brought the higher priced one (58.00 for mediocre wine). My daughter sent her soup back. Tasted rancid. Only 1 dish out of 6 was okay. Rest was awful. Portions small but high priced. Was a horrible birthday choice. Had to apologize to everyone. Lots of food left on plates & not for a good reason. One of the worst & we go out at least 2-3 x's period week.
This is perhaps the best restaurant in the South Bay. The food is excellent, the pastas are freshly made and the wine list is excellent. The wait staff is attentive without being overbearing and is knowledgeable with regard to food and wine pairings. The atmosphere is conducive to conversation and relaxed dining.
Delightful evening meal with the Sunday nite special $40. All piatti were good but the meat piece de resistance was excellent. Polite, friendly service, nothing hurried. The front area in the open was quiet & very pleasant. The vino rosso house wine was also exceptional.
What a wonderful discovery! Both my dinner companion and I have been to Italy and HP was the closest thing to local Italian food.The owners Anna and Angelo are warm hosts and take great pride in their restaurant. The interior is warm and friendly. The tables are tucked in the space and similar to village cafes in Italy. Our waitress was attentive but not overly fussy. The food was beautifully prepared and you could taste the flavors of the high quality ingredients. The sauces popped and complimented the tuna and scallops we ordered. The gem at the end of the meal was a strawberry rhubarb rustic tart. It was freshly made and was a tasty buttery fruit filled goodness. The wine list was unique and offered many choices. The Barolo we chose was full bodied and had a smooth finish. We enjoyed our evening and left satiated and relaxed.
We live not far from the restaurant and it is almost always our go-to when we have the urge to eat out in comfort with excellent food. Guests are made to feel like members of the family. The Sunday night supper is lovely. We'll be back!
We eat at Hostaria Piave on a regular basis. The food is terrific, the wine list is extensive and we enjoy the atmosphere. The owner welcomes us personally and recommends good wine to go with our food selection. This is a rare fine dining experience in the South Bay area. we make it our neighborhood go to place. Nice to sit on the patio in warm weather, too. Highly recommend!
Presentation was unusual but appetizing nonetheless, taste was OK, but some seasoning inconsistency (over-seasoned, under seasoned), pasta dish was the best of all our dishes, watch out for very, very crunchy bread (IMHO, if its fresh, you don't need to toast the heck out of it). Service was excellent.
My husband and I went here for our Friday night "date night". The food was wonderful and the wine flights great. Most importantly the service is great. They totally accommodated some of our special food requirements. We definitely recommend.
