I went there with a girlfriend and she’s gluten free so she ordered the truffle risotto which was amazing and I ordered the lasagna which was a bit underwhelming, but still good. Wouldn’t get the truffle fries again ($17), as it was an Italian restaurant and was hoping it would taste more truffle-y. We also ordered a glass of wine. I ordered the Malbec and she initially ordered a Pinot noir which the waitress highly suggested and then sent it back because it didn’t taste like wine. Pricing was a bit high for what we got. The decor is was interesting and location was close to freeway entrance so it was a bit noisy. Overall it was enjoyable and I would consider going back again if not just for the truffle.

The food was amazing. One of those hole in the wall places that's insanely delicious. Authentic Italian at its best. Definitely going back soon and have told others as well.

The food was amazing.

There was a custom dish which was a spaghetti with sea food and it was marvelous.

Additionally, the risotto is very good.

Real, fresh and delicious Italian food from the Modena region. No meatballs, no garlic bread and no pizza. This is a high end restaurant and the food is amazing. Service is always friendly and the restaurant space is unique and very interesting in it's own right, like a shrine to Italian cuisine and culture.

Pay for the tortellini with black truffle and they filled the space of the plate with another pasta (not tortellini) , and I paid 45 usd for that dish .... so a completely failure.

Risotto was good but not extraordinary.

Truffle Fries, meh .....

We went for DineLA for our first Casa Modena experience. It was all around exquisite! The food was not only beautifully plated but tasted out of this world. They definitely do not skimp out on the truffles! Stand outs were definitely the burrata crostini, truffle pasta and lobster ravioli. So glad for things like DineLa because it brought us in and now we will definitely be back!

Went for the dine la special, $59 for prix fixe 3 courses and desert.

Showed up the first day of Dine LA for a 7pm reservation and immediately they inform us they are out of the meatballs, one of three apps choices. How in the world are they out of one of nine menu items early on the first night.

First course: crostini with burrata and shaved black truffle. I was shocked to see the heaping amount of truffle shaved over the 6 crostini’s (2 orders) they placed in from of me and my date. Once I tasted the extremely bland flavor and chalky texture of the truffles I understood. Simply poor quality. The dish was also severely under seasoned.

Second course: spinach tagliatelle with meat sauce, and a lobster ravioli in saffron cream sauce. The tagliatelle was very overcooked, pasta was soft and soggy, not even close to al dente. The meat sauce was lackluster and tasted like salt and beef. The ravioli on the other hand was undercooked. The lobster inside had a fishy quality. It tasted frozen, and did not have the sweet savory flavor of fresh lobster.

At this point complained to the waiter who then brought out the owner. I politely as I could expressed my dissatisfaction with the meal. He ensured me I was the only guest who had complained all night. Looking around the room, I was not surprised, it did not look like a crowd who could know and appreciate good Italian food.

Took our third course to go, a New York steak dish and a pan grilled sea bass dish. Tried a bite each back home and they were equally unimpressive. Seemed like poor quality ingredients cooked lazily.

All in all, If you are looking for Italian in the west side, this is not the place. Overpriced, poor quality, don’t make the same mistake I did and spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

Each time we eat at this place, we rave about the food. It is homemade Italian food that is truly special and delicious. The place is cute, homey, a perfect reflection of the owner and his mother who started it all.
The only issue we have, and why we don't visit more often, is that the prices are high, especially for the amount of food served. The portions are small, you will not leave this restaurant stuffed; frankly I'm very ok with that part. But to pay $200 for four thin/healthy people, without alcohol, and leave not full, seems like a lot.

So this is a special occasion place for us, because again, the food is outstanding.
