Need authentic Italian in Santa Monica

sassille | Jun 18, 2007 03:40 PM

We have a guest, who is Italian, who hopes to have a great Italian dinner Friday night. He's from northern CA where Italian dining means the dreaded Olive Garden or Buca de Beppo. Because of L.A. traffic, we can't stray too far from his hotel, Shutters. I booked La Botte because I like the food. But am I missing a shot for something truly authentic that will remind him of his recent trips to Italy? I've been interested in trying Capo, but I don't want our guests to be intimidatd by the tab. We want to spend about $50 pp before wine tax & tip.
