Wonderful Italian food, my favorite.
Nice people, good food, horrible funeral music.
Only three tables of 4 and they sat everyone together.
It used to be so much more.....made us saf
Delicious, friendly, wines are expensive, but good
The 5 course New Years Eve dinner prepared by Angelo was simply fabulous! Authentic Venetian style cooking at its finest. the lentil soup with cappone broth was a rare find here in LA and was executed perfectly. The veal osso buco was the best I've had in years. Excellent service in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere made for a memorable evening. The wine list is well appointed and extensive. We enjoyed a delightful Rosso di Montefalco with dinner and welcomed in the New Year with an excellent Bisol prosecco from Valdobiaddine. Having lived in Northern Italy for 8 years and visited almost yearly for the past 30, I've sampled my fair share of Italian cuisine. Give Osteria Piave a try; it's my favorite Italian restaurant in the South Bay!
Food was excellent but service was super slow! Noise level was excessive . Parents and staff ignored a screaming 3 year old next to our table. What are people like this thinking?
Screaming children make dining uncomfortable.
Angelo continues his impeccable tradition of exceptionally delicious and creative Venetian cuisine. New Year's Eve's prix fix menu included remarkable house-smoked ahi, light but flavorful lentil soup, house-made fine pasta with uni and tiny bay scallops, a choice of fish or the best osso bucco ever, and a light-as-air cake bursting with chocolate flavor! Anna's wine recommendations complimented the meal perfectly.
too expensive, not worth this money; food is good, all fine but overpriced
Gnoche was fabulous, great wine selection, but the duck confit was over cooked and dry.
This place never disappoints . The service is always excellent and accommodating. The waiters make good recommendations . The wine selection is incredible and reasonably priced . The ambiance is very pleasant . Food is always delicious . Highly recommend !
Wine selection is extensive. Food options abundant; however my choice of entree was not available. Jay was an engaging and attentive server, he addressed the entire party with brief description of menu offerings as well as suggested wine pairings with our choices.
Food very good. Scallops great, ravioli and swordfish would’ve benefited with better seasoning.
Ambience not improved by hard interior. Nothing to muffle raucous laughter which made it hard to communicate across a table for two.
We have dined here several times and were always pleased. This time our food was not so great. My husband had the black ink squid pasta dish and he said it was awful. I had a lamb shank and it was just okay not spectacular. I did not partake in the calamari appetizer but they were not thrilled with it. It was just a mediocre dinner and not up to its past reputation.
I was hopin to love this place, but it was just "a-ok". Nothing bad, just nothing great ... except the service - the people and servers were excellent. This was our second time dining there ... and just like the first time, it wasn't bad, just wasn't great or memorable ... no "wow" at all tonight, nor was there the first time. Maybe 3rd time will be the charm ... The service was excellent, we were greeted with a big welcome, given a nice table, and service was just perfect. The ambiance is "ok", decorated nicely, a patio, right on PCH .... I had the "Sunday Night Dinner", a 4 course meal prix fixe. Salad of cucumber and radish ... nice, ok ... pasta, homemade, but they too al dente to a new level of chewy, but ok. The the salmon main was pretty good, with very tasty zucchini on the side, finally a lemon tart was ok as well. My fiancé had an heirloom tomato and cucumber salad that was tasty and lamb chops that were ok as well ... I guess I am saying pretty much everything was ok, nothing bad, but nothing very interesting and memorable. I wanted so bad to love this place, but it deserves lots of love for great and nice and attentive people, maybe if the food was a little more special I would give it a few more kudos for the food.
Love this place. The best Italian food in this area! Highly recommend it.
One of my favorite South Bay restaurants. This time, there were four of us. For antipasto we had the seared veal tenderloin and the frito misto. Both were incredible. The veal is cut crepe thin, as you would carpaccio. Delicious on bread. The frito misto were calamari, shrimp, anchovies and white fish, all slightly battered and fried. Everyone loved that, especially those little anchovies. Even if you don't like anchovies, they are great battered and fried. Later, we ordered the pasticcio, northern Italy version of lasagna. Delicious homemade pasta layered with beef, pork and lamb. The beet and celery root ravioli, we thought may be interesting , but no one liked that. The gnocchi were delicious, soft and fluffy in a tasty ragu.
