Bestia is a happening, very popular, hip spot. Art district, urban, industrial chic. Food is small plates. Ordered salad, tasty, with a lemony, dill flavor. Ordered gorgonzola and kale pizza. Cheese is naturally salty, with added salt to crust, pizza was too salty. Would not...More

DO NOT GO, TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE. Terrible customer service, not willing to accomodate. Plenty of other places where you can enjoy good food and not be treated with such inflexibility and complete lack of desire to accomodate customers. We had a table reserved for...More

Bestia totally lived up to the hype! We had to make a rez 6 weeks in advance and eat at 5 pm on a weekday (meaning we had to navigate the LA rush hour), but wow!

This restaurant is located in a remote part of downtown, however once you get inside the warehouse like building it sure is worth it. We got there on Sunday night around 9:30 PM and the place was still full. Great Vibe, and the service is...More

It was my first visit, and I really enjoyed my five courses. The Roasted Marrow Bone was delicious, also the Cavatelli with housemade pork sausage. The noise is loud, but the Bestia is worth the visit. Highly recommended.

The food at Bestia is excellent and it truly makes up for all the small inconveniences the restuarant also offers. Here are my qualms: 1. Exclusivity: It takes weeks to get a decent reservation on a decent day at a decent time. I did walk...More

Remarkable and impeccable italian experience in an unpredictable LA location. Typical must come back in every trip. Experience goes beyond the great food all the way to great servers. Don't forget to book ahead and be ready for a great dining experience!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

The sooner, the better if you are picky about the time. You can usually get in easier after 9:00 or so.
