A Santa Monica landmark dating back to the ‘20s, the onetime Wilshire has been reimagined with an Italian streak. It’s hard to imagine a more exquisitely Angeleno locale than this sprawling courtyard, encased by massive pine trees and illuminated by twinkling string lights. Though Fia's menu appears routine on the surface, it's full of inventive twists, as seen in the sweet and spicy bomboloni used to scoop up a chilled Jonah crab salad, or the intense 24-year-old Parmesan that lends depth to a cacio e pepe-inspired risotto. Save room for the ethereal goat cheesecake—those notes of mango and black sesame will have you floating out.
