Bettolino Kitchen, a Handmade Pasta Haven in Redondo Beach

And there's a Michelin-starred chef in the back.

The South Bay is once again stepping up its quality food offerings, with tomorrow’s unveiling of Bettolino Kitchen in Redondo Beach. Adjacent to the Riviera Village, Bettolino is the work of brother and sister restaurateur team Vince and Andreanna Giuliano and her husband Sean Liguore. The new casual space joins recent spots like Steak & Whisky in Hermosa Beach in creating airy, light-filled rooms that focus on local craft — and aren’t afraid to go heavy on the wood.

For Bettolino, the rehabbed wood comes in the form of sanded-down flooring, playfully battered four tops and a few long communal tables with high-back chairs. Wine earns front and center focus inside the 65 seat room, which features an open bar at one end. As for food, expect focused, handmade Italian dishes from Italian chef import Fabio Ugoletti, who earned a Michelin star at Al Gallopapa in Castellina.

Bettolino Kitchen opens Wednesday, March 25, for daily service beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday through Thursday the kitchen is open until 10 p.m., and until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
