Farmshop, opened in 2010, is a Restaurant and an Artisanal Market & Bakery located in the historical 1948 Brentwood Country Mart on 26th Street in Santa Monica. <br /><br />Jeff Cerciello's cuisine focuses on seasonal local ingredients. Irene Verbila from the LA Times wrote " Sunday nights at Farmshop are devoted to fried chicken… it's the best...but the bird I'm nominating as one of the 10 Best Meals is Cerciello's organic roasted chicken...golden and crisp, the flesh dense yet moist, each bite was better than the last."<br /><br />In addition to highlighting fresh local produce, Farmshop offers a 300 choice California-centric wine list, a market with curated cheeses, charcuterie, artisanal foods and housewares, all an homage to the many California based farmers, producers and purveyors we are proud to showcase.

"Located in a small boutique shopping center with other food and coffee establishments. Had the price fixe menu on Sunday Chicken Night. Server was great, explained the menu well and happy to see the meal exceeded expectations. She also made very good wine suggestion, which I appreciated. The food was amazing and fresh. The bonus is that they restaurant also sells beautiful cheeses, wines and other specialty items on par with Dean & DeLuca. Must Eat!"

It’s more fun in the RA with lively music, a vibrant crowd, inventive cocktails and innovative Japanese fusion cuisine. Whatever you choose, it’s all served with a big side of Anything Can Happen. So bring your friends or make new ones. Either way, you’re in for a great time.

"We sat in the outdoor patio area, please note this area is first come first serve, so your reservation may not place you outside. I got lucky. Wait staff was great and quick. She even had bartender make me a off menu drink, Moscow Mule without the copper cup. Food was great."

A visit to Della Terra is like walking into a familiar Tuscan trattoria--comfortable, friendly, yet oh so elegant. You are immediately enveloped by the warm lighting and the inviting smells emanating from the Italian wood burning oven and the secret recipe pizza cooking inside of it. We greet you at the door with obvious pleasure, soft music plays in the background and our experienced waiters attend to your every need. You are home. The decor is a unique blend of New York sophistication and California casual: simple, cozy, luxurious. You"re surrounded by sumptuous dark wood, rich red brick, and wonderful wrought iron accents under a magnificent vaulted ceiling. If you'd prefer to sit among the flowers and climbing plants in the open air, the patio spills out into the Los Angeles afternoon or evening to provide the refreshing garden experience of a country villa. The perfect canvas for that perfect meal...

"We had 10 in our party and was set up in their private wine cellar room. Great looking room. The wait staff took very good care of us. Great wine list and very good options by the glass. We had calamari and the Della salad to start- real good. They have wood fire oven , so great pizza and calzones. Fresh pasta of all varieties and combinations , delicious and perfectly al dente."

"Great food and ambience . Beautifully decorated with wood and exposed brick. Large wine selection. Good size portions reasonably priced. Loved the mix of dining and bar scene. Always thought it was great to the neighborhood change from ghost town to a bustling area with lots of people walking around and more business open at night, also lots of parking if coming from out of town."
