SESTINA is a vegan pasta and wine bar. Current locations include New York City and Culver City. The restaurant features a sustainable wine program and plant-based versions of Italian favorites. In addition, they offer creative small plates. Pizzas will be cooked in an in-house brick pizza oven. The restaurant also plans to offer house-made gelato for dessert.

Popular dishes from the other SESTINA locations include Sweet Corn Ravioli (served with Alfredo sauce and herb oil) and creamy Panna Cotta. Additionally, those looking for a quick and healthy lunch will find a large lunch menu of salads and sandwiches at the new location.

The interior of the new restaurant is bright and welcoming, with an L-shaped bar and both indoor and outdoor seating. The Century City Mall features high-end boutiques, department stores, and a full-service movie theater, making SESTINA a perfect spot for a date night.
