Vernetti, a Charming Italian Gem Opening May 27 on Larchmont

The former Girasole has become a swell neighborhood pasta house.

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Steve Vernetti decided it was time to switch up the old Girasole on Larchmont, and what a wonderful job he's done to keep up with the latest trends. Bright, minimal, charming, and suave, Vernetti now takes the place of the shoebox restaurant that's just perfect for the neighborhood. With a refined take on Italian-American cuisine, Vernetti will serve daily from breakfast through dinner, plus weekend brunch.

Officially opening on May 27, the dishes will likely come from the familiar canon of linguine vongole, grilled veal chop, branzino, plus more innovative takes like baked ricotta with chestnut honey, and a massive 40 oz. dry-aged porterhouse from Marconda's Meats. Steve's wife Joanna helped put together to the lovely interior while architect David Thompson, founder of Assembledge+, ensured the place felt right at home on Larchmont. Another feather in the cap for Larchmont, which keeps garnering great places to eat.
