Antonio opened Ado Ristorante and started the Ado brand, which also included Casa Ado Restaurant, Adoteca Brentwood and the Ado Italian Marketplace line. Quail prosciutto is made in house, slices of the tiny cured breast with a swirl of Gorgonzola sauce. One of them was amazing. The attention to detail of all the workers is impeccable, they carefully planned out the timing of each dish so that there was not too much or too little of a wait time between courses.
This place is kinda hidden away and doesn't have the buzz of the Venice hotspots. I was super excited to try this place as I've heard really great things. We actually had to ask about our dishes and they said just a few more minutes with no apology for the delay. Even a so-called open kitchen is anything but—it reveals nothing of the hours of prep, of how the ingredients were stored, of who did what to your fish from the boat to the dock to that morning. Aside from the fact that Virbila hates west side Italian food, why is she looking for French food in an Italian restaurant? Try using Current Location search again. Or, if Irene Virbila was correct, at least ruin our night. Who could eat this much bland fava purée? Two in our party ordered this and immediate,y understood why it was a best seller.
That's the key for me in the relationship. With a quaint outdoor patio, dinner and drinks can be enjoyed while watching the sunseet over the ocean. I knew it after the first bite. The description and keywords of Adovenice were last changed more than a year ago. We gathered car by car.
My sister-in-law gave a toast and my mother-in-law sighed with joy. Ado is a new Italian place, located in a yellow, two-story bungalow just where Main Street curves into Abbot Kinney. Ceiling has exposed beams, but tables are close together and felt like we were dining with another couple whose table was inches away. And that is the only thing nondescript about Ado. His partner is Paolo Cesaro of Via Veneto and the recently shuttered Hidden, both in Santa Monica.
Rereading this does not sound a tenth as good as it was. This rustic Italian cuisine eatery marries the understated sophistication of its earthy décor of exposed wood beams and simple wood seating with a welcoming menu of unpretentious authentic fare. Main dishes might include daily specials such as branzino or veal chop, as well as traditional Italian game dishes like pheasant, rabbit or wild boar. Fresh pasta, fresh food, and quality service. We ordered the black cod, but since that was last night's special, we had the halibut with roasted multi-colored carrots and asparagus atop a chunky purée of fennel. It's easily confused with Ago: too close to Ago for comfort.
I don't know the guy, and I'm not playing. Nice ambience, with a converted loft or cottage feel. That loses points from me. But none with quite the passione or the stugots as Italians. Meanwhile, in Belmont, Portia is awash with suitors. Long story short, both of our stomachs are in bad shape today. It was a warm night, and we drank some of that Italian sparkling water Virbila found to be such a rip off.
The meat added enough flavor to balance the creaminess of the fondue out and it all blended together for a very well balanced bite. It was printed again in 1619, as part of William Jaggard's so-called. There are so many delicious sounding dishes, that I will probably be back to try them or just order the beet pasta! I highly recommend sitting on the outside deck where you get a nice view of the street and there are heaters all around. I came to ask about that lousy review. Long story short - after some back and forth, it was resolved. The wines have been great and the menu is stellar especially seafood , but this place really has phenomenal specials!! Highly recommend dining here - best local restaurant in Venice by a long way.
Also, it's easier for Mure, a very hands-on chef, to control two kitchens instead of three. First she declines, but after he insists, Portia requests his ring and Antonio's gloves. We were sent into rapture as we tasted the quail prosciutto with generously shaved black truffles. Wish it came with some chips however to consume together. I called him out on it and he took it off.
Waited total of 25 minutes for a table. Tbh the wine was quite amazing but the half bottle was like 3X the price of each glass. No desert in a proper restaurant should come served with spray cream it cheapens the dish. Evidently, there is also a gravity problem for Virbila on the westside — everything is heavier for her at Italian restaurants there. Everyone loved the pasta dishes that they ordered.
