I just returned from a trip to Rome and had an amazing dinner at Tullio, known to be one of the best, authentic, Italian restaurants in Rome. I can compare my recent dinner at Via Veneto in Santa Monica to that dinner in Rome, both were seriously authentic and I loved them both. Like Tullio, it’s hard to get a reservation at Via Veneto. They’re both small spaces with aggressive, knowledgeable waiters who really do know more about the menu and food than you do.
On a recent Friday night, I had a great dinner with some amazing Italian wine at Via Veneto. Here are some images and you can read all the details on my Examiner.com review here.
