    It was terrific. We loved the food and the service was very good Only glitch was that we called to change the reservation time and they didn't make note of the change; however, they found us a table right away.

  • Disappointment
    Sadness
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    We had not been for several years, and only went because the friends we were meeting suggested it. What a profound disappointment. I had a steak entree described as "tagliata style"- instead, it was served covered in a bbq style sauce. It ruined a perfectly good piece of meat. Not being one to send back food barring epic problems, I ate a little and chalked it up to a poor choice. Figured I'd just eat extra dessert. My companions found their dishes to be acceptable - but not particularly good. Then, dessert. We ordered a lemon dessert and a chocolate dessert to share. Both were basically burnt. Totally out of character, we sent both back. Inedible. But for the delightful company, it was a waste of an evening. Won't be back again. So sad.

    This is a small restaurant, so I would recommend making a reservation. The service and food were both great. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. It was quiet so we could actually have a nice conversation at the table. We got there early and were planning to have a glass of wine at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party. They do not have a bar Instead they just sat us at our table early while we waited. Great experience

    Excellent service, held our reservation when our party was 20 minutes late, friendly and caring, made us all feel comfortable, great menu, and tasty Italian food. Really convenient that you can make reservations online and they call to confirm with you. Overall, just a terrific restaurant! If you drink wine and have maybe an appetizer or dessert, the average for our party of nine was $50/person. So just come prepared to spend about $100/couple if in a group. But the restaurant ambiance, food presentation, delicious tastes, and excellent service made it well worth it. Take a look at their website--detailed and right on.

    I was surprised to have a very good and memorable dinner. The chef / owner is interactive with the customer base and makes them feel at home and very welcome in his restaurant. The food is very good and the space is warm and homey. Being from Philadelphia, I find it hard to find good Italian food, and this was very good.

    Very lovely place in Brentwood. Chef is on hand and very friendly. food is very tasty, as well as a great wine list. The tables, chairs and ambience is very pleasant. Note: Service 4 out of 5 because of the bussing service. Plates removed too quickly, and too many reach overs. Note: Food 4 out of 5 because it was a little light in flavor and seasoning. I order Beat salad and mushroom risotto. Both were very nice but light in flavor for Italian fair. Overall I will go back and would recommend to others.

    I was looking for a quiet place with great cuisine. I found it in Osteria Latini. The branzino and Lake Superior whitefish were perfectly done and very delicious. We began with an heirloom tomato salad and the raw baby artichoke salad. We had a fantastic dining experience while eating healthy. Service was very prompt and accurate. The staff could not have been more helpful. No question that we will be back and soon.

    Our party of four enjoyed an artichoke and endive salad as well as other appetizers, three different pasta dishes and a Chicken Milanaise. All were good although the Milanaise was a bit on the pale side (coating much better in the past). Service was very good. Cost was about $90 per couple for our party including four entrees, 3 appetizers, 3 drinks (wine).

    Had a really incredible meal - Branzino was among the best I have ever had and so was the Eggplant appetizer. Wait staff and Owner were very attentive and since we were celebrating someone's special anniversary, they kindly brought a tray of assorted (and excellent) desserts on the house. This was our 3rd visit there in the last year and it has gotten better each time. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

    Osteria is one of our "go-to" regulars - when we want a great meal without a lot of pretensions or fuss we head here. There are always terrific daily specials but anything off the regular menu (there's a great salad with pears, chicken milanese and piccata that are superb) will satisfy even the most fussy diner. I can recommend Osteria without hesitation.

    Osteria Latini is third in line of the other "Osterias" I like, Angelini Osteria - my favorite Italian restaurant in Los Angeles by far - and Osteria Mossa, but still very good food and a festive atmosphere. Saturday night was packed; not a single open table. I had a veal scaloppini with prosciutto that is a staple of good Italian cuisine that was very good. The calamari with just OK, with only rounds 0 - no whole quid - and a bland batter but a spinach salad was very good and the restaurant offered a nice lemon concoction as as an amuse de bouche which served as deessert

    My family came here to celebrate Father's Day a night early, and it was perfect! The food was absolutely delicious, and there were so many choices. My dad is a vegetarian and he was able to choose from a variety of items that he could eat. The ambiance was great, even though the place is quite small, you don't really feel it. The service was a little slow- we had to ask to have our orders taken after sitting there for a while, but it was busy in the restaurant so not a big deal. Overall, had a lovely dinner at Osteria Latini and will definitely come back again!

    We had dinner for 4 on a Saturday night. The restaurant is welcoming and lovely. Our waiter was outstanding. The food was variable. The Dover sole and osso bucco were great; the vegetable and turkey lasagna and the bone-in filet were so-so. There was a complimentary lemon dessert that was fabulous. The berry crumble was more like a berry muffin and somewhat dry. The cheesecake was only so-so. The chocolate mousse, served with sorbet, was outstanding.

    This is the best vongole I have found in Los Angeles. And efficient and attentive staff. A cozy welcoming environment. I felt like I was back in Rome. Finally an Italian restaurant that's affordable and feels like Italy. I can't wait to go back here. I travel to Italy frequently on business so I have high standards for Italian food. And this restaurant exceeded my expectations.

    First time guests. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was excellent, and the service was excellent. The branzino was moist and flavorable. The fish is brought to the table and shown to the guest before fileted and plated. The steak was served cooked as ordered, medium rare. The linguini was al dente, and the clams tender. When the wait staff learned we were there celebrating a birthday, they brought out a dessert plate for the birthday girl with a taste, a substantial taste, of a wonderful selection of desserts. A very nice surprise, and it delighted the recipient. We will return.

    We returned to Osteria Latini after a long break and were looking forward to a great experience. While the food didn't disappoint, the service was not great. The waiter and the hostess engaged in an ongoing conversation over an iPhone while we waited... The empty plates set on the table, the wine wasn't poured, the desert menus didn't show up for 10 minutes, etc. And they were not that busy. Not sure I will return...

    Great experience! This great neighborhood restaurant really impressed me. We were seated promptly at our scheduled reservation time. The waiter was calm cool,professional and knowledgeable. As he opened and poured our bottle of wine he informed us of the specials. WE ordered the Chesapeake Clams appetizer which were fresh bountiful and amazing. My date ordered the Branzino(sea bass)pan seared whole then filleted and served with asparagus broccoli and garlic sauteed spinach which was brought to us in the pan to view before being filleted and served,superb! I ordered the pounded veal chop Marsala. Again perfectly prepared and served. Overall a great experience! I Highly recommend Osteria Latina!

    i have had a better experience there for dinner than lunch. We were the first to arrive for lunch. There was hard rock music playing very loud. When I asked the waiter if he could change the music he said "no, the music changes on its own." Then the next song was like mexican folk music. Then everyone in my party got their food and mine was sitting on the side in the back getting cold. The waiter proceeded to serve another table before he put my food on the plate. I ordered the sole with shellfish. I guess he was not counting on the fact that I knew that was my food back there. I didn't like the service and wont be back for lunch. My experience for dinner in the past was much better.
