Scarpetta is the restaurant of Food Network's talented chef Scott Conant. Hidden in the hotel of the Montage and located right across from the very popular Bouchon, the eatery is my Italian foodie fantasy dream come true. The décor is sophisticated and the food is on point.
Literally, everything on the menu looked phenomenal. I wanted to order each dish and savor each dish. Conant brings simple dishes and turns it into something extraordinary; even the bread was exceptional!

Overall, I would say Scarpetta is ranked as one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Los Angeles. Almost everything we ordered was flavorful, simple, and truly balanced. I'm quite disappointed that its doors are closing April 2. Word on the street is that the other Food Network star Geoffrey Zakarian will be doing the restaurant switch. If it's anything remotely like Scott Conant's Scarpetta, I'll be a very happy piglet.
Notable Dishes: Tajarin, Spaghetti, Creamy Polenta, and Panna Cotta
