The Grand Opening of Ristorante Al Mare!


This past Wednesday, the World Famous Santa Monica Pier welcomed more than just visitors and another beautiful, sunny day. . .  It provided a spectacular backdrop for The OFFICIAL Grand Opening Event and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Ristorante Al Mare!


The Ristorante Al Mare team, along with the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, had the honor of cutting the ribbon and publically announcing the grand opening of their beautiful restaurant! All smiles and cheer above are Laurel Rosen, President of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, and Al Mare principle owners Michael Liberty and fiancé Britt Napier, co-owner Paolo Simeone, and executive chef Giacomo Pettinari.


The reception following the ribbon cutting was filled with support and love, beautiful views, and delicious food! Chef Giacomo served up some delicious traditional Italian favorites such as pesto vegetable Focaccia sandwiches, mini pizzas, Arancini, tuna tar-tar, and the list goes on and on!


Guests enjoyed sipping on the restaurant’s signature Al Mare cocktail and other Italian wines, coupled with the delicious food and the rooftop bar, it made for a wonderful celebration of their official opening!

From ice cream to cake pops and every topping in between, SweetXO is truly a fantasy for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Just in case the guests were feeling full of candy and cocktails and were looking to get a quick workout in, Yogaworks gave 15-minute yoga demonstrations throughout the night.

Melrose PR and everyone's private driver, Uber, partnered up for those who drank one too many “Life of the Parties” to get a ride from Uber and had $20 off their first time.

At the end of the night, there was a toast and the “hostesses with the mostest” cut the cake, provided by All That Frost, and celebrated as everyone mingled the night away. It was certainly a successful show-up and an unforgettable night not to be missed!
