Since 1978, Louise's has been a part of the Los Angeles community and hailed by CitySearch as one of LA's "Top 10 Best Italian restaurants." As we embark into a new Louise's era, we want to introduce you to a member of our Louise's family. Addie Benson-Gundry loved Louise’s as a child, and in her training to become a chef, she has worked with some of the most influential chefs and personalities in the food world including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Martha Stewart. She has made appearances on the Food Network, including a win on Alton Brown’s Cutthroat Kitchen.
Well, now Addie is back home at Louise’s, and we are happy to welcome her! We hope you enjoy what Addie has brought to the Louise’s menu as much as we have enjoyed having her back in the Louise’s family.
Each Louise's has its own distinctive style and personality, from our intimate storefronts in Larchmont Village and Santa Monica to the private dining room at our flagship store in West Los Angeles. Although all our locations possess a familiarity with each other, each restaurant has a unique character and embraces the neighborhood in which it resides.

Recently remodeled, Louise’s on Montana Avenue is located in the center of this busy North Santa Monica shopping area and is one of our most popular restaurants. Frequented by area locals and shoppers alike, our Montana Avenue location really exudes the feel of Santa Monica and is within walking distance of 3rd Street Promenade, the Santa Monica Pier, world famous Ocean Avenue, and Pacific Park. With some of our longest-tenured employees and most loyal guests, Louise’s on Montana is a place where you’ll quickly become one of the family.
Our Larchmont Village location is located just East of Hancock Park. Halfway between Mid-Wilshire and Downtown, this quaint little shopping district is the perfect “getaway” in the middle of the day. Always humming in the lunch and dinner hours, our Larchmont location is a favorite for business lunches and local dinners. And of course, its proximity to Hollywood makes for a great start to a night on the town.
