We went for dinner with family on a Tuesday night. The space has a high ceiling and is very open-much like a loft space. The counter at the front has a huge refrigerated case with beautiful looking pastries. We did not try the pastry. We were seated and the server came promptly. She took our drink order and returned for... More

We arrived in LA and asked our Hotel porter for a good Italian restaurant. This is how we found Bottega Louie and we ended up going back twice. We thought we'd try somewhere else the third night and asked our Uber driver for a recommendation. His favorite Italian place? Bottega Louie! It is a big place located down town in... More

I walked past this place on this visit to LA and was reminded of my experience eating here on a previous visit to LA. The food and service were not memorable. They have an area where you can order treats to go after you finish dining and we were doing just that when a waitress carrying a hot cup of... More

Lovely restaurant with good Italian food. Wide open area to wait until table was ready. Fantastic bakery for eating in or take-out.

This is a large-scale restaurant with excellent food and service. It was not noisy where we were sitting, but expect it could be is some areas. It is very convenient for eating downtown when attending events.

This place is hopping, but well worth a trip for lunch. Probably the best lunch I have had in a long time. The store section has many beautiful desserts to choose from, and is extremely picture-worthy with all the bright colours. Although the desserts are gorgeous, they are average tasting. Even thought is seems very crowded, the wait for a... More

Just don't see why this place is so busy. My pizza was as forgettable as a stranger on an escalator. Macaroon only a bit better.

We chose Bottega Louie for the location, it's near a LA metro station. The restaurant is a quick walk from there. This was the first time we have dined there. It was a very pleasant surprise, it looked like the restaurants we've have been to in Paris, France. The were greeted with white Italian marble floors and their beautiful Patisserie... More

A vast open, high-ceilinged space downtown LA with something for everyone. It's not the best food in the world but it is a good place if you have kids because no one will hear them! Always have a great time there and it is the perfect place to take visitors for something different. They have a bakery up front for... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
