    the only reason i left out 1 star for overall rating was because i did not dine inside and can not rate noise level and atmosphere for interior. outside was wonderful...pretty lighted floral trees..private cabana tables..relaxed atmosphere...although busy, low level noise....delicious food....wonderful server...pricey wine by the glass ($14) i enjoyed beet salad, pumpkin ravioli and flourless chocolate cake. newly relocated from new york city, i am thankful to find a replacement for my special go to restaurant in new york...the only thing i don't get here in los angeles is the charge for parking! by the time i pay fee and tip it's just under $10 to park (in new york it was free parking and just tipping attendants)

    Service was ridiculously bad.We were a party of 4 w/simple orders, yet everything seemed to take way too long.I had to grab passing employees twice to ask them to send our server over.By the time our entrees arrived we had been there over 1 hr.Our server apologized, and said the manager would be right over.If the mgr was 1 of the 3 who then rushed to get our food on the table, he/she did not say a word to us--maybe needs a refresher in manager 101.My ravioli looked and tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for awhile.The rest of the food was fine.To cap off the evening, the valet brought the wrong car.I may go back again b/c I know this is a better restaurant than this visit would indicate, but not any time soon. Disappointing.

    So, the good is really good and the wait staff is attentive. However, my wife and I had ordered a couple of appetizers and we were not served our salad until AFTER our main course arrived. I find this to be unacceptable. When the salad finally arrived, we were asked if we still wanted it. They should have comp'd the salad--the problem is that the owner was too busy kissing up to a table of apparent VIPs. Everyone should be a VIP and I just feel for a $165 dinner you could probably do better elsewhere. That being said, the food was tasty and our waiter was very nice.

    We had not ordered dessert and so were surprised when a plate of cookies and a bowl with berries was put on our table; we thought it was a surprise gesture of some sort by the restaurant, so we consumed them. However, the items appeared on our check! We paid the total, however, but leaving we inadvertently took both parts of the bill. The owner followed us out to the parking lot and asked for the restaurant's part of the bill. We also told him about the dessert and told him not to take the waiter to task for the mistake. He said he would not and insisted on reimbursing us in cash for the desserts, so all ended on a resolved and happy note.

    Clearly they have wait staff gems and duds based on the varying reviews. We got a dud. Older man, glasses...he we would directly at us the walk somewhere else. Took us 30 minutes to even get our order in. He would always just stand in front us and wait for us to speak. It was one of the worst service experiences I have ever had. Food good enough though. But bathrooms, while nicely decorated, smelled horrible and clearly were not cleaned well. Fix these two things and maybe I'll come back.

    I have been going Ca Del Sole for a few years, but these last 2 visits, 2 nights in a row, by coincidence, were great. On both nights, I was entertaining clients. The selections were so wonderful I ordered family style for the tables to share numerous dishes, so we could have a taste of all their selections. Every dish was prepared with care, and were all delicious. The calf liver, the boneless chicken, pasta dishes, antipasti; were all delicious. Great wine list. Kudos to the owner, Andrea Bullo, I enjoyed both nights tremendously. By the way, I'm a New Yorker, and the food stood up quite well to my prejudiced NY palette.

    We had such a wonderful experience at Ca Del Sole. The service was wonderful and attentive, and the food was out of this world. The spinach and carrot fettuccine with ragu sauce was out of this world and the beef ravioli with parmesan sauce and shaved truffles was delectable. The dining room could use a facelift, but I'm more concerned about the food and service, which were spot on. We can't wait to return with friends!

    Now I must give a little leeway as it was raining and we were sitting outside, protected by a cabana.... but you would think the waiters and waitresses AND the bus boys thought they were gonna melt... OK Wizard of Oz witches -- it's only a little drizzle for gosh sakes... It literally took me (after 20 minutes of us sitting there like idiots) to get up and go into the restaurant to inquire as to whom was our server?? The bus boy nodded and ran past us several times and I had to go in again to request bread. Once the food came though I must admit my usual pumpkin squash pasta was as good as ever. I swear they've never missed a beat when I go with a regular customer for lunch though...

    My wife and I dined at Ca Del Sole for the first time recently and were very impressed. We both really loved the burrata Caprese salad and the table breads with olive spread were also very tasty. My wife loved her gluten free bucatini - she appreciated that almost every pasta could be made gluten-free - and I enjoyed my pumpkin ravioli. The tiramisu was outstanding. Our wines were also excellent, and the quartino size option was new to us, and nice. The service was friendly and professional. We were seated in the back room which was quieter but perhaps not as aesthetically attractive as the front room. The bar looked very nice and we saw that there is an outdoor patio as well.

    5 of us dined here for lunch and it was excellent from the moment we walked in. We sat inside for the 1st time as it was too hot for outdoors and the ambience was wonderful - we felt as if we were in Italy. We each ordered one of the specials and were not disappointed. I thought my risotto was the best with the pasta ragout a close 2nd. We have all eaten here several times before and continue to enjoy it - we all highly recommend this restaurant.

    We went here for lunch last Sunday. We were a party of 7 and got seated in the patio on a round table, which was perfect. The ambiance is so relaxing and the trees and umbrellas provide enough shadow to still feel the sun but enjoy the light breeze. The menu was to die for, we all ordered different dishes and shared. I think we ordered all the appetizers as well, and nothing was left at the end! Our server was more than attentive and our drinks were refilled before we even noticed. Awesome food, awesome ambiance and very good prices! best Italian restaurant I've found in LA so far. 100% recommended.

    I reserved through Open Table and looked forward to surprising my husband with a meal at Ca Del Sole. The food was amazing, truly. But I requested to be seated outdoors and thought we could do better than a tiny table next to the wait station and a huge party of noisy women. Our table was tiny, there was no light, and as it grew darker we had to beg the staff for candles.

    The branzino sea bass and salmon were moist and delicious! Disappointed that the popular outdoor tented area was all booked. The indoor dining was a little noisy for conversation. Great service! Great for birthday celebrations - if u order a dessert, they'll bring another kind of dessert. We ordered a tiramisu (I prefer in cake form; this was a pudding, but still light and delicious) and had a refreshing coconut sorbet with a candle on it, Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate, and the birthday song sung by our server. Nice touch! Short drive (5 min) for after movies/TV academy screenings. 4 hrs free parking on the street on the other side of the car dealership after 6pm.
