I will definitely return to this restaurant. The sashimi was like butter. Just melted in your mouth. Very fast service, also.... though we were the first people in the restaurant for Friday night dinner, so it's a little hard to judge appropriately.

Food was really fresh and the staff very helpful. Service was outstanding. I tried to find something negative to say about this place, but not one thing comes to mind. It was a very enjoyable meal. Also they have valet parking. The spicy tuna on crispy rice was incredible!

I visit Itacho regularly and it's always great! It's a perfect restaurant to dine with friends, a date, a large group, and my favorite spot for dinner with my boyfriend and his mother. We order the Lotus Root and Curry Shrimp dishes every time we come!

Great authentic Japanese food
With so many Westernized Japanese restaurants in LA, it's refreshing to find a restaurant that doesn't cater to the American palate and instead stays true to traditional Japanese izakaya-style cuisine. Izakaya food is essentially Japanese tapas, and the fun is to create a meal out of small plates of delicious tidbits like miso-marinated eggplant, crunchy fried chicken, and Japanese peppers sautéed in soy sauce. There's even sushi for those who can't goo without. The service is good and helpful if you need any items explained. Highly recommended!

Good to have in the neighborhood
Go for the sushi, it is always fresh and a level above the competition at this price point. The cooked dishes can be inconsistent. A great place to have in the neighborhood - a high quality, no hassle, reasonably priced restaurant.

Not the best Japanese I've ever had but it was fresh and tasty so I can't complain too much

My favorite Sushi place!
I just love this place. The servers are friendly and attentive- they will even make suggestions based on what fish is the freshest. I love the variety on the menu along with their prices. It will not cost you an arm & leg to have a great sushi dinner. They also have a specials menu written on a chalkboard that have great deals too. The food is fantastic and very flavorful. I have not disliked any dish I have ordered there. I usually just get sushi and haven't tried many of their hot dishes other than some appetizers. It's conveniently located on Beverly Blvd and has affordable valet parking if you can't find a meter. If you like sushi or even if you are curious about trying it- you will not be sorry you went to Itacho!

We went with a large group which is always tricky with sushi but it exceeded expectations. I ordered many different pieces of nigiri and it was served to me on my own plate - not mixed up with other orders which I really liked.. The waiter recommended the order in which to eat each piece and he was absolutely right! The sushi was so fresh and created with care.The appetizers - crunchy rice stick with spicy tuna and yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño was wonderful and the kids loved it. I have sushi once a week either at nobu, sugarfish or Katsuya and the food here was just as good, some of it better.. A great surprise. They do need more waiters though. There only seemed to be one the night we were there and it got very busy.
