Had a lovely brunch with dear friends celebrating two birthdays.We all enjoyed the outdoors in a cabana setting. Service was great and food was perfect. Great place to spend a couple hours enjoying great food and friends.
Everything was excellent
We always enjoy dinner at Ca Del Sole. You really can't go wrong.
We went to an early dinner before a show, and it was fantastic. The service was great, and we had a hard time choosing from the menu because we wanted everything. We decided to get a few appetizers and split 2 salads, and we both got the short rib ravioli. It was great, and I’d like to go again. The wait staff is so polite and attentive.
This was a special Valentine's Day menu that was not filled with the usual great items from the menu. So, this review is only on the pre-fixe menu which was limited. The food was fine but we were missing the pasta specialties that we usually go for.
What can I say that I haven't said before? Great as always! This is a neighborhood institution but not ultra trendy. It's just great Italian food and everyone in this part of the Valley (or who works at adjacent Universal Studios) knows it!
What was great about this last meal is that it was Valentine's Day and I've had some uneven experiences at other great restaurants on this Prix Fix day. This meal was flawlessly prepared and served. Bread and tapenade to start, followed by a first course of luscious tuna tartare on a bed or avocado; main of seafood risotto that was perfect; desert of creamy delicious panna cotta. My husband had superb beef carpaccio to start, then Ravioli as a main (he loved it), and cream puffs drizzled with chocolate syrup for dessert. All great.
We were seated promptly on the gorgeous patio about 2 minutes after our on-time arrival, and were not rushed (as is often the case when there are "seatings" during a holiday). We were there about an hour & 15 minutes which was perfect. I loved that they had the music turned down a bit so we could have a conversation and hear each other! Just enough ambient noise to make it fun but no so much that it interfered with conversation.
Valet parking is only $4.50 and a very short wait. They park the vehicles on the premises.
I have been to Ca Del Sole about 10 Times. Every time I leave absolutely satisfied. The food is amazing and the ambience is equal to any of the nicest places in LA. The prices are incredibly affordable. Without a doubt, this is our favorite restaurant in all of LA!!!
It was as always great service. Good drinks.
The lamb shank was not available, which is my favorite, so had the pork instead, very good and lots of it. They have painted the dining room green which makes it look smaller. Liked it the cream color it was before.
Excellent dinner, a short drive from Universal Studios Hollywood. Delicious and authentic Italian food. Good wine list. Attentive service.
1. The server, after telling us what your restaurant doesn't have, had an insolent tone in her voice almost rude. Her tone did not change as the night went on.
2. I had the spaghetti with marinara which is not on the menu. When it arrived the spaghetti was not cooked. It was hard to bite through and very chewy. Returned to kitchen. Returned to me and the spaghetti was not warm and still tough to eat! The server called it al dente but in my opinion it was not cooked enough and I told her that the first time. She then revealed to me that spaghetti is the only pasta your restaurant does not make and is brought in from somewhere else and not very good. Nice bit of news to have before I placed my order. What a disappointment.
After nearly 10 years in LA, I've finally found my favorite restaurant. I'm on my 6th time dining there in the past year -- and have never had anything there I didn't love. Great wine list, incredible food (killer pasta), highly professional and friendly service, wonderful atmosphere. Reasonably priced excellence. Great for friends or a romantic evening. And the desserts are exquisite.
The service was excellent. The food was not great. We dine there always, but it’s always a hit or miss. I think it has to do with the chef of the evening. Slightly disappointed with meal. However the ambiance is always pleasant and our server was excellent l:
We had a wonderful birthday celebration. The food and service were very good. We had very much looked forward to coming back to the restaurant after several years. The only negative thing was with the valet parking. Upon leaving I presented my ticket and paid the $4.50 charge with a $5 dollar bill. The attended rushed off without giving me a receipt and brought the car. After I tipped him and additional $1, he claimed I hadn't paid the valet parking charge. I insisted I absolutely did. This incident could have been totally avoided with more trained valet staff and some type of a receipt.
I have always loved this incredible restaurant. I will recommend them everyday and twice on Sunday
