A high-end Italian restaurant and martini bar just steps from the beach? Where do we sign up? This Manhattan Beach eatery has a great wine list and more formal menu options than many of its South Bay competitors: There's beef carpaccio, grilled tiger prawns, champagne swordfish and a very nice cioppino. Come for the reasonably priced happy hour; stay for osso buco or rack of lamb.
