We had dinner for 4 on a SaturdayWe 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.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Father's Day Dinner!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!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite Italian restaurantThis 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.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a quiet lunchGreat place for a quiet lunch with a friend on a weekday.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMfrom valet to servers, politefrom valet to servers, polite and helpful .............. it's a classy place6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome hidden restaurantTo know this place is a gift..

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.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a bit of a tight squeezeIt's a bit of a tight squeeze but everyone is so friendly and happy to see you, it feels like a big hug!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Osteria Latini.
