Big news on the Westside as we discover that Piccolo, arguably Venice’s best Italian restaurant, is expanding with a new restaurant called Hostaria Del Piccolo, to be housed among the Positano Apartments on Broadway in Santa Monica. So far there’s little information online save for a preliminary website and we haven’t been able to reach the flagship this morning, as they only keep dinner hours. But if their expensive, cultivated Italian can make it on the beach, surely it should succeed in Downtown Santa Monica, whether it be a similar or more casual venture. The restaurant plans to open in October, stay tuned for more details.
Hostaria Del Piccolo, 606 Broadway Santa Monica.
