  • "Based on Open Table reviews we chose this restaurant. Renee, our waitress, was extrememly friendly and informative. Led us to the right choices. Food was great and and very resonably priced. Very home style and a fun place. Lots of energy with people eating, drinking and laughing. Will definitely be back!"

  • "Eclectre to open table based on it's convenient location in Venice. We went expecting more typical Italian fare. What we found was day expanded their menu and included many unusual dishes. Our party enjoyed all of our dishes. The butternut squash soup was particularly delicious as were the steak raviolis. Would highly recommend this restaurant for it's Eclectic fare. though the noise level was somewhat higher than you would like, it did not interfere with our table of four conversation. One surprising addition was the running display of art and photography on the monitor above the bar rather news or sports; a very nice change!"

  • "We have been here a few times. Every time, the food has been excellent. The food is straight up Italian. It is very good and exactly what you want when you think of Italian. This past visit, I was a bit early to meet my part and sat at the bar for a few minutes. I ended up talking with the owners (I did not realize that at the time). They could not have been more friendly and nice and just wonderful people. They really made me like the restaurant even more. Now besides for great food and reasonable prices, you know the owners care and are just great people."

  • "I brought my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. The waitstaff was very friendly, the manager checked in on our experience, and the food was delicious. The portions were also very generous, and the prices were all reasonable. My girlfriend was very happy and wanted to know how soon we could come back. My only complaint was that the table next to us was a little too close for comfort. Overall, it was a great date experience. I'll be recommending the place to many friends."

  • "This place is amazing. Finding Italian food in Los Angeles that is actually tasty is quite difficult - this is one of the only places I'll actually. Pricing is more than reasonable, big portions for food you will wind up dreaming about. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Great little neighborhood restaurant. Many local Venice folks frequent. Food is really good, except I ordered , the eggplant parmesan which is excellent. My only complaint is the portion was so small, I could have eaten 3, and this was entrée size. Also there was no side of anything. Love this place, just will not order that dish again, unless the portion changes."

  • "The ambience was just right. Low lighting but not too dark. The meals did not leave us wanting. The portions are just perfect. We had the special brushetta of the day.. It was delicious. The Italian meats antipasto was a real hit with all of us. Every bit of the chicken marsala was good. The chicken was so tender, you could eat it without a knife and the sauce was really yummy with a generous portion of mashed potatoes. The homemade pastas we had were light and very tasty. The steak filled ravioli was something we hadn't had before and was enjoyable. The cavatelli with sausage ragu had a good ratio of pasta to sauce and had a real homemade quality to it. The only criticism, the wine poured fell short of a typical serving."

  • "We enjoyed our lunch at Centanni. It was quiet - only two other tables were filled on a Sunday afternoon. The waiter was enjoyable, and the food was fabulous! We were coming from LAX, and it was an easy drive from there."

  • "This was our third visit to Centanni. It's located close to the place we stay when traveling to this part of the LA Area. The food is well prepared, the service is excellent but the wine list could use development. The vibe is friendly though it gets noisy when there's a full house."

  • "We were a group of seven meeting for lunch, and had the place almost to ourselves. Assume it is much busier during the week and also for dinner, as the food was quite good. We all hada variety of pasta and salad dishes and enjoyed them very much. The service was also very good, attentive without being intrusive."

  • "The noise (bare floors, no linens on the tables, big parties) was the first thing to greet us when we walked in . Even though we had a reservation, the only table available was in a dark corner near the door. Dismal and facing two walls. Our waiter was very polite and pleasant and accommodating. But the food was a huge disappointment, especially because the chef is supposed to be one of the top chefs in America! Tomatoes and mozzarella were tasteless, but beautifully presented. The chicken parmegian was like shoe leather and the eggplant parmegian, although nicely prepared, had a sauce that looked and tasted like Campbell's soup! Very disappointing. Sorry to say, we won't be back."
