A return to the classic American Bar and Grill, The Ordinarie--located on The Promenade in Downtown Long Beach-- offers a menu of revived comfort food, classic cocktails and a timeless tavern backdrop with a modern twist. Small plates, burgers, salads, sandwiches and entrees fill the pages of the restaurant's lengthy menu coupled with wine, craft beer and a long list of spirits. The Ordinarie is truly an extraordinary dining experience and features live entertainment.
This longstanding Italian restaurant, which opened in 1979, is now under new ownership and has never looked or tasted so good. Serving a variety of delicious Italian fare, this intimate bistro is known for its warm hospitality and unparalleled service in the heart of Belmont Shore. Offering an array of pasta, including a decadent lobster ravioli, the restaurant is open daily for both lunch and dinner. If you haven't experience Buona Gente.
Located in the former Alamitos Beach space occupied for many years by At Last Café, Ellie's has enjoyed rave reviews since its opening. The Southern Italian-inspired menu belongs to the talented Chef-Owner Jason Witzl, whose vision was to open a neighborhood restaurant where locals could gather. The menu features an assortment of ingredients grown and harvested by local farmers with seafood caught by local fisherman along with skilled butchers providing premium meats. Guests are greeted with a warm familial feeling, often by Chef Witzl himself as he makes his way from the kitchen to each table saying his hellos and sharing his enthusiasm for all things food and wine. Ellie's serves brunch, lunch and dinner.
