Authentic Italian cuisine, 5 star service, tailored to meet your budget and exceed your expectations.
Classic Italian cuisine superbly prepared and presented.
Fabulous place and Robert and his dad make you feel special. Ask for the sauted calamari!!
WE have been coming here for 20 plus years
Always great food and service
Meats veal chicken steak all nice
An outstanding meal and a real find. From the house specialty soup and Caesar salad to dessert, La Bruschetta never faltered and delivered a memorable pre-theater dinner experience. After a nice amuse bouche of bruschetta (what else?), I tried the favorably-reviewed puréed vegetable soup. Excellent, with just a whisper of pesto. Caesar salad was perfect. The bucatini alla Carbonara was delicious, using guanciale as the meat accent in place of prosciutto. Risotto with chicken sausage and sun dried tomatoes was scrumptious, with the Arborio rice done just right. Large glasses of a reasonably-priced Montepulciano complemented the entrees.
A fresh grind of Italian roast coffee, a wonderful tiramisu and a very satisfying créme brûlée topped off a flawless dinner. Service was attentive, but never intrusive. I am reasonably demanding as a patron, but this is a special restaurant.
Food is wonderful and so is the service. Best Branzino in town.
We had a very simple dinner after a movie, just one course each and we both enjoyed our food (pasta). My Lasagna was very delicious. We had been recently with friends and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, even when the restaurant was full. We will return!!
Consistently delicious food and warm, friendly, attentive service made for a wonderful dining experience.
Very good service and delicious food. Food was out fast but not rushed. Nice wine to choose from. The fish specials were fresh.
Some of the best Italian food I've had in Los Angeles. Authentic, delicious, and the service is second-to-none.
I very much enjoyed the Sicilian calamari. The burrata was creamy truffle goodness and the barrimundi crispy skinned and perfectly cooked. Really a treat. I will go back
Delicious meal . We love it there . The staff is wonderful and the food is excellent.
The menu looks intriguing, but the food is only ok. For such exorbitant prices, I had expected more.
Angelo is a wonderful host and the food was very delicious...only complaint is that the bread basket needs serious improvement!!!
What a wonderful find! The service is excellent and the food is authentic Italian. I recommend it highly!
Good food, nice people and great service.
I had a fantastic Risotto and the wine was awesome.
Great service, fine food, warm atmosphere....what else could one ask for?
For a few decades it is always consistently good
Wines at fair prices
You will be very happy
Angelo and his son are professionals
Well informed wait staff are able to really do justice to the variety of dishes, ingredients and wines on offer
I love this restaurant! Try the caneloni
The owner snd his son are always there. The food abd service are both excellent.
Amazing service, very personable and friendly. Every dish we selected was delicious. One of our party arrived late and her dinner hit the table about three seconds after she sat down. Perfect timing! We couldn't have been happier. Will definitely repeat.
Loved our dinner, service, table - everything! We will be back. Although we were first time diners, were were treated like we were very special guests. Tremendous!
Great food - great service! It is nice to be able to go to a restaurant and to be able to speak to the people at your table. Very very unusual -- and very disappointing for those of us who want to enjoy other peoples company.
It is a small but comfortable restaurant with only
a few tables.
But don't be mislead. The food here is wonderful.
Just like being in Italy. My risotto was as good as
it was in Sorrento.
The servers are attentive and fast.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who
likes Italian food. Do make reservations.
Angelo is a wonderful host, food is delicious and authentic, service is great.
One cannot do better for authentic, delicious Italian cuisine on the Westside.
Excellent food and service.
Excellent the second time, too. Classy without the pretentiousness. Well-worth the experience.
Food was well-prepared, with delicious flavor mixes - I had a shrimp salad with mangos, basil and asparagas and ravioli filled with artichokes and served with fresh cherry tomatoes and a white wine sauce. The classic - lasagna and eggplant - are perfectly prepared and delicious, but low-keyed. Service is polite, friendly but unobtrusive. The setting is elegant, but simple and modern. We have been coming to this restaurant for at least 10 years and it never disappoints.
It was a great dining experience. It was cozy and familiar. The waitstaff was attentive and engaging. The food was delicious. Would definitely return and will recommend to friends.
An all-around great dining experience...food, service, selection and ambiance!
It's always a pleasure to dine here. This time, though, the service was slower than usual. My food was great, but one of the diners was unenthusiastic about the linguine with squid ink. We enjoyed the wine as always, plus the specials.
We met friends after a movie at the Landmark. The waiter, very well informed, suggested a different wine from the wine on the menu, and it was very good. Our food was delicious: we ordered many dishes from the seasonal menu which had several choices. What was great, even though the restaurant was full, we could still talk to our friends about the movie, our families and our travel plans. I recommend this restaurant.
Our party of 9 had an excellent dinner and the service was fantastic. I would definitely return on my next trip to LA.
Delicious, as always! I ordered something not on the menu and they made it for me!
My wife and I had a very pleasant dinner prior to attending a concert nearby. The service, the food, the ambience, and the server's wine recommendation were all excellent. It has been several years since our last visit, but I am sure we will return soon. The prices were reasonable.
Absolutely worth going there!!!!!!! Food was great, everbody was so nice! Loved it! If we ever come back to L.A. this is gonna be our first choice!
Always a fantastic experience at La Bruschetta...thanks to Angelo and company.
The food was great and the service was excellent!
We are Italian and it has been always very difficult for us to find a good place where to eat authentic Italian food. The dishes at "La Bruschetta" were amazing: the best original Italian taste. The owner Angelo and his son Roberto are very welcoming and passionate. The restaurant is very elegant and cozy. A little corner of the "Bella Italia"!
Very nice atmosphere with linen napkins and tablecloths and good service. The owner let us hang out long after everyone had left, and the food was very good. It’s hard to find a place that’s not totally noisy, so it was great to actually hear my dining companion. I would come here again for any occasion.
This is a wonderful Italian restaurant with fresh ingredients, wonderful specials and friendly staff.
