Birthday Dinner - Bestia or bust?

ESB30 | Oct 16, 2013 12:24 PM

My husband and I have reservations at Bestia this month for my 30th birthday and we're debating whether we should go. I took my husband to Sotto for his birthday about 2 years ago and he was not fan (it was also DineLA, so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with his dislike of it.) I enjoyed Sotto a little more than my husband did, but we honestly prefer the pizza, meatballs, etc. at 800 Degrees to Sotto (with the exception of Sotto's chocolate crostata, which I loved). The menu at Bestia reminds me a little of Sotto, so I'm debating whether to cancel the reservation. My husband's also a pretty picky eater, so we'll be sticking to veggie, chicken, beef, and pork dishes and won't be eating any bone marrow, sea urchin, etc.

Thank you!!
