LA'S MODERN ITALIAN DINING DESTINATION NUMERO UNO

 

Il Grano has  long been a  neighborhood  gem.  
This intimate space, tucked into a bustling stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard in West Los Angeles, 
has  been  a  culinary  oasis  since  its  opening in  1997. Chef  and  Owner  Salvatore  Marino brings
excitement to the world of authentic Italian cooking with his seasonal, contemporary fare, including 
his signature crudo, the Italian-style raw fish that earned him a James Beard nomination and which dazzles food critics and guests alike.  

Market-Fresh Contemporary Italian
In the kitchen, Marino shares the same culinary devotion to both earth and sea. Remaining faithful to his Neapolitan roots, he serves the freshest seafood, dutifully rising each morning before dawn—rain or shine—to find the best catches at the local fish markets. His seafood specialties include homemade Squid Ink Bigoli Pasta with Sea Urchin Sauce; Skate Wing over Venus Black Risotto; or the open lobster raviolo.
