This is my second time at Bestia and the first time for my sister and her boyfriend! I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to come here again especially when it takes months and months to get a reservation. I think we booked this 3 months ago and our dinner time was still at 8:45pm- still pretty late for dinner in my mind! But who cares?!! Gotta come here as much as I can!
It’s one of the must-try spots in LA and definitely has a huge waitlist. I already knew what dishes I wanted to have again and what I wanted to try this time. We got plenty of small plates during our last visit, so I knew I wanted to try one of their pizzas and meat dishes.
Our server recommended the crostini with egg and black truffles, which was such an amazing choice to start off with! The eggs were creamy and the flavor of the truffle shavings made the dish unbelievably delicious! I highly recommend this! The pizza we chose was the Burrata which was nice and light with amazingly yummy cheese!
Another highlight of our dinner was the Tomahawk pork, which was a 37 oz piece of pork. They ran out of the porterhouse, so the alternative was the Tomahawk which won my boyfriend over the minute our server told us about it! There was a scrumptious and crispy crust on the pork and the meat itself was so tender and moist with just the right amount of bite. It was pretty pricey but worth it.
I’d say our visit to Bestia was successful because my sister and her boyfriend left the restaurant wanting to book another reservation! I don’t mind though!
