Restaurant View, Lou’s on the Hill in Torrance

By Brad Jacobson

The Civic Couch Show brings you another restaurant view, this time we take a look at Lou’s on the Hill in Torrance.

Just as you begin to drive up the hill on Hawthorne Blvd you will see Lou’s on the left side of the street.  I was there on a shoot for the Easy Reader Newspaper.  I met Lou Giovannetti, the owner of Lou’s, on a video that the Civic Couch Show produced for the closing of the Side Bar so I was interested to see what he had produced.  Immediatley upon walking in I was impressed.  I like the use of wood floors and matching wood tables, large bar and lighting.  Each table has enough room so you’re not shoulder to should with the people at the next table.  I also like the use of natural light, not overpowering.  Please keep in mind that this is not a food review (I did not try the food), just giving you a view of the restaurant.  I did run into some friends there and they raved about the food.

The manager of Lou’s on the Hill (CJ Manning) greeted me at the door and was very pleasant.  He gave me a quick tour and even showed me one of their dishes (as seen in the photo below).
