la puglia


1621 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica

Since it opened in late 2020, every other Italian restaurant in Santa Monica pales in comparison to La Puglia, which sources many of its ingredients from Italy or local farmers. We can taste the difference and the effort that goes into the Southern Italian food at this all-day spot on Wilshire. While you’ll find pizza, pasta, pastries and more on the menu, the specialty here are panzerroti - fried dough pockets stuffed with high-quality cheese and other ingredients, like tomato sauce, ground beef, or spinach. We have yet to find these anywhere else in LA, and we don’t know why, because they make for a delicious solo-meal with a glass of wine and a salad.
