I have to take a client to lunch in Santa Monica near Ocean Park and Centinela. We need something comfortable, good food and not too overwhelming.

Thanks so much

    If it needs to be walking distance, there is a wonderful Italian restaurant called Vito on Ocean Park and 28th.....very old world, dark with waiters and tuxes. Great food, very hushed.

        Really pretty darn good and reasonable Italian food at Il Forno on Ocean Park just 3 blocks west of your location, (30th and OP). They have a nice patio or inside dining.

          I went to Vito's due to a recommendation from a "well-known restaurant guide." The food was horrible. I have no idea why people recommend that restaurant.
