Diner Reviews
  • "Loved half portion pasta and salads excellent meat sauce"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Thank you for an enjoyable dinner! The service was great! "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "It's a good neighborhood restaurant, but nothing to go out of your way for. The sauce for my pasta was not complex. The veal was not particularly inventive. Yes, the wine list was impressive, but we're not big wine people. Kind of dark inside. "

  • "ordered a pasta dish and also ordered chicken to be added. The chicken was very small diced pieces and probably not more than 2 tablespoons for an extra charge of $5.00. They also forgot to add the goat cheese (which was why I ordered this pasta) and brought it on the side...again a tiny servicing, probably 1 tablespoon. I was really surprised and disappointed. They seem to be very stingy with some ingredients. Salad was barely dressed but they did bring me more dressing. Our waiter was new to this restaurant but was extremely helpful and courteous. All in all I would go back but ask more questions before I ordered."

  • "Great neighborhood Italian with delicious food appealing to a wide variety of tastes. Casual, friendly atmosphere is relaxing."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "A very relaxed experience. The restaurant was only about half full. I had a spinach salad with grilled shrimp and pine nuts. My companion had a "trio" of corn chowder, a chicken panino and a little salad. All was good. But the BEST was the tiramisu, which the server said was the best he had ever had, bar none, including in Italy. I had to agree. It was very chilled, which made it delicious. It was a big square, which the two of us shared. It was really incredible. I would go back just for that."

  • "I always try to eat at Sprazzo when I travel to UCLA for meetings. It is close, excellent in every way, and consistently so. I've been eating here for more than ten years, and have always had the same great, comfortable experience."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Thank you for the great service! The best tiramisu i've ever had!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Sprazzo is has a great menu! Everything is delicious. Warm, comfortable ambience."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "This charming local restaurant has consistently good food. Good venue for pre-theatre dining in Westwood or for meeting a friend for dinner. Get on their e-mail list and receive 2 for one specials!"

  • "The restaurant had comfortable atmosphere and provided attentive and friendly service. Our server was knowledgeable and recommended good tasting dishes."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "We've been here many times and never left disappointed. The food is outstanding and rivals if not exceeds the food we had on a recent Italy vacation. The owners care and are always onsite. Pasta dishes are creative and quite tasty, the risotto scampi is legendary in my household. The balsamic is ridiculously good and can be purchased to enjoy at home (we always keep a bottle at the house). Ambiance is usually fine, but at times some customers can be a bit noisy. I'm not sure why people are compelled to practically yell at their dinner companions, but it seems to happen a lot here which can be annoying in a small space. It may just be bigger societal issue these days! So please come to Sprazzo, but do keep it down! My goodness. Great food!"

  • "We used to go here regularly but moved away several years ago. We were delighted to re-discover this resturant. Same delicious food as before. Highly recommend the different kinds of gnochhi, all of which are good."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "Thank you for the wonderful birthday celebration. Everything was delicious and the service was spot on. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 9/29/2013
  • "I shared the pear salad with my husband. There was a mound of arugula on the plate, a few sultanas scattered around and two tiny slivers of pear for $11.00. We asked the waiter for more! The pasta with mushrooms was watery, leathery and unappealing. I would not recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "We keep going back to this great place. Can't go wrong. We seem to always go with 6 or 8 people and everyone raves about their plate of food. Love it!"
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "Thank you for a splendid dinner! Everything was amazing!"
    Dined on 8/5/2013
  • "We stayed in a nearby hotel and quickly chose a close-by restaurant from open table, and glad we chose this one. I ordered the Ravioli Spinaci and it was perfect. I ordered it with "pink sauce" (called rose sauce where I'm from) rather than the cream sauce and it was one of the best I've ever had. My wife ordered the Vitello Piccata, and my daughter ordered the Linguine Alla Pescatore, which were also great. Not only was the food great, but for that area of Los Angeles, the prices are very good. The atmosphere and service is very good as well. The owner and waiter was always nearby and we didn't have to ask for refills of our drinks when it was needed. Its the type of place where I would want it stay a secret. Highly recommended."

  • "A group of us had dropped our children off at UCLA and were looking for a moderately priced local restaurant with a varied menu. Sprazzo Cucina dud not disappoint. The single room lined with booths was small but quiet, and we were seated at a round table conducive to conversation. The service was efficient and unobtrusive. All of the diners in our group seemed pleased with their meals which ranged from pizza to pasta to chicken and fish."
    Dined on 7/21/2013
  • "This was my wife and I first time using Open Table. The prior reviews are as good as advertised for this restaurant. The restaurant is quite intimate. The entire staff was personable and patient, especially with the arrogant patron seated behind us critiquing everything like he was Gordon Ramsey and insisting the Italian and European staff were not pronouncing the menu names correctly. That Jesus like kindness alone makes it far more likely we will return. That and the fact the food is terrific."
    Dined on 7/6/2013
  • "This place got it right! Fabulous dinner and service thank you!"
    Dined on 5/6/2013
  • "This was our first time at Sprazzo. I picked it because the prices on the on-line menu appeared quite moderate, it is located very near UCLA where we had tickets for a concert and we love Italian food. Unfortunately, the food was only fair. Fortunately, there are other Italian restaurants in the immediate vicinity. So, we will not return."
    Dined on 4/21/2013
  • "Two stars off for the high price coupled with the small portion size. Decent ambiance, but restaurant is bit small."
    Dined on 3/31/2013
  • "Excellent meal, delicious food. The small, intimate dining room was just right for a relaxed evening of dining and conversation. Service was attentive and gracious."
    Dined on 3/22/2013
  • "Fabulous venue to dine in. Everything about it is top notch!"
    Dined on 2/8/2013
  • "The food was very good but way too expensive! I have been going here for years, but had not been for awhile so I was shocked that 2 salads and 2 coffees came to $47 and we had a coupon! Lunch should not cost that much especially without wine or desert. Not to mention its a little neighborhood joint, not a destination that you would be paying for atmosphere. I will not be back, sad they got so expensive!"
    Dined on 2/6/2013
  • "Very good pre-theater restaurant in Westwood. Good selection of different Italian salads, appetizers, pastas, entrees, and pizzas. Better than your typical Italian fare, but not over the top in price or snooty attitude. Stylish interior. Quiet. Friendly staff. Good wine list. Wife and I each ordered a salad (they are large). I then had a pizza and she ordered gnocchi. Given that it's Westwood and south of Wilshire, street parking can be hard to find."
    Dined on 2/6/2013
  • "Delightful, cozy warm atmosphere with friendly attentive service and outstanding food, modestly priced. "Neighborhood gem" is a perfect description. We will return for sure."
    Dined on 2/2/2013
  • "I love this restaurant. Have been there many times now and will continue to join others in enjoying very good food."
    Dined on 1/19/2013
  • "We had a good time here. It was almost a bit too empty, we were the only ones at 7.30 on a Thursday and only one other table got busy a couple of minutes later. The ambiente was just right and the volume of the music as well, not too loud that it bothers you, not too quiet to be useless. A pleasant choice of food, we had the Chef's special seafood risotto and pasta with chicken and goat cheese in a white wine sauce, really excellent. For drinks we picked a half-bottle Merlot from the Napa Valley that was excellent as well. The dessert was a shared Tiramisu, which was excellent, maybe a tad too much cream and too few coffee, but in general one of the better ones I had."
    Dined on 11/29/2012
  • "Excellent food and service. We had an amazing 90 minute dining experience and we all felt stuffed. We walked off dinner about a mile in time to catch the basketball game at Pauley Pavillion. Don't miss the bread,dip and balsamic!"
    Dined on 11/10/2012
  • "Thank you for an enjoyable dinner. The linguine with clams hit the spot! Service was friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 10/27/2012
  • "This is one of the best old-school Italian restaurants in Los Angeles with wonderful pasta dishes. Great service and the owner is always there and on top of things."
    Dined on 10/13/2012
  • "Service was very poor. A couple of us were brought our wine, but one never got his and even when reminded, the waiter didn't bring it. Basically we received no attention at all. Food was good though."
    Dined on 9/28/2012
  • "Homemade gnocchi was the best i've had! Wonderful dinner and friendly service. The balsamic vinegar was the bomb!"
    Dined on 9/12/2012
  • "Still one of my favorites! They've got great regular choices on the menu and we always end up getting at least one of their specials; we are never disappointed in our food choices. The wine list is extensive and the service is always superb! Although the restaurant is small, the dining experience never lets me down."
