About Us

Il Mare is downtown L.A.'s home for a modern take on fresh, hearty Italian fare. Our chef lovingly prepares rustic Neapolitan pizzas, the freshest seafood, succulent meat dishes and amazing classic pastas in our open kitchen. From the first bite of beef carpaccio to the last morsel of tiramisu, Il Mare offers up an unfailingly delicious taste of Italy. From Venetian and Caprese starters to robust Rigatoni Bolognese, your taste buds will be delighted at every turn. We provide downtown Los Angeles diners with mouthwatering lighter Italian dishes like grilled salmon, as well as Chicken Parmigiana and other delectable stick-to-your-ribs entrees.

Our convenient location near LA Live and Staples Center makes it easy to enjoy an incredible meal before or after an evening of entertainment. As part of the thriving South Park district, Il Mare is the perfect spot to reboot with an arugula goat cheese and watermelon salad for lunch, or enjoy a late supper of Poached Salmon Ilmare. You'll love unwinding with a cocktail made from one of our many top-shelf liquors. We are also happy to help you select the most suitable wine to enhance your meal. Reserve a table online or by phone to enjoy fabulous Italian food and wine in our cozy, contemporary dining room. We at Il Mare truly look forward to serving you at our South Park eatery.
