The ever famous Bestia! A place where you have to book months in advance! Luckily, my friend had a reservation he made so I finally got a chance to try this place.

This place is BUSY! They turn over tables so quickly and at no point are there any empty tables.  They pride themselves in a daily menu change which I think is a bit much but it's nice to see variety in their menu selection.  

We ordered an assortment of dishes including bone marrow, octopus crostini, D'angelo Pizza, and a butternut squash pasta and of course ended with the chocolate tart dessert.  The menu is very Italian based which I enjoy but honestly I've had better! The price is steep on some of these items so I could go in to DTLA and find something better.  The bone marrow dish is way overhyped.  Out of all the dishes we had, the dessert was probably the best dish!

The pasta portion was SO TINY! The waiter said it's designed for one person but it came out with 12 pasta noodle! I was shocked with the portion sizes since the pizza was a great size.

Drink wise, they have a good selection as well!
