With a devoted following in NYC and a history that dates back to 1931 in Venice, Cipriani had finally made its mark in Los Angeles. Mr.C Hotel is the first hotel venture for the 4th generation Cipriani brothers Ignazio and Maggioa great location on Beverwill and Pico, Angelenos have been awaiting the opening of the infamous Cipriani.
Having heard mixed reviews, I went to try it out myself with no expectations. Thank-fully I was pleasantly surprised. On a Friday night it was packed in a typical LA – new restaurant – in town -fashion…
The restaurant itself is a very open space decorated in quintessential old school luxury, with a dark wood bar, marble floors, and leather chairs.
The service and food were overall excellent. Among my favorite dishes of the night, were the Burrata and Tomatoes – so simple but executed perfectly, the Prosciutto Pizza, and the fruit tart with Vanilla gelato.
Warranting another visit, I have already been back for lunch!
Cipriani is definitely worth a try.
