Review: Zane's - Hermosa Beach
Just came home from dinner at Zane's. I had no expectations going in, just hoped that it was better than it's predecessor, Italy's Little Kitchen which was a waste of space and not very good food.
The bread was awesome, tasted freshly baked and came with sides of hummus, olive tapenade and roasted peppers. Very delicious (tip: eat with hummus and peppers together!).
We shared the salad with goat cheese and pears--nice size to share with two. I had the soup for dinner and my husband had the spinach/ricotta ravioli w/pesto. Both were flavorful and the pasta was surprisingly fresh. The texture wasn't mushy and didn't taste pre-frozen. The pizza choices looked good and you can order super thin crust for $1 extra; but I wasn't too hungry for that.
Desserts, they said, were all made in house (although the young server hesitated before answering "yes") but again, we weren't that hungry to order anything else.
The wine list was decent (very good glass of Cab Sav from Napa). All in all, a good choice for locals (I can walk there which is awesome!) and I would def go again and hope that the food and service stays consistent as time passes. Not sure how long ago they opened, but it was very recent, like within weeks.
