Seamlessly blending simple and chic, vintage and contemporary Bottega Americano is a European inspired restaurant and marketplace.  Unique to the West Coast, the restaurant features five interactive food bars where guests can sit and enjoy the culinary performance and all of the exciting sights, sounds and aromas of the kitchen. Diners can also savor the Bottega Americano experience at home with made-to-order takeout meals from the gourmet-to-go epicurean market.  The menu is firmly rooted in the culinary traditions of Italy and elevated by the innovation of American regional cooking.  Executive Chef David Warner prepares Italian inspired dishes using the best local ingredients and modern techniques. We hope you enjoy Bottega Americano!

"I realize its crazy before showtime, but each staff member was clearly on their own trying to care for customers. Management does not seem to be involved in the service and operation."

Located in the Sunset & Vine Building in the heart of Hollywood, Chef David Lentz & crew have been serving up quality seafood since 2005. The focus is on high quality fish paired with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, often from nearby farmer's markets. The raw bar showcases Pacific and Atlantic oysters, Santa Barbara sea urchin, raw and marinated fish dishes, crab and lobster. <p> The Hungry Cat bar specializes in seasonal, market driven cocktails, craft brews and an eclectic wine list . <p>The Hungry Cat is open daily serving lunch and dinner, with brunch on the weekends. The patio is an amazingly calm respite from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

"Beautiful, magical patio. Twinks in tight cloths. Mediocre poorly presented food, but no one goes to WeHo for good food anyway."

"Unwelcoming. Our actual server was ok, but I felt like we were a problem being in the restaurant midday as everyone had tasks they were doing. plus they offered to get us change for the meters and never brought any! Finally gave up on the manager before getting a ticket. Plenty of parking, but the only meters I've used in years that do not accept cards. Plenty of more interesting menus in the area. Still waiting on our meter change. Keep it!"
