Note: For parties over 8 guests please call the restaurant at 310.477.1052. In business since 1984, La Bruschetta has won a loyal neighborhood following and has long been one of the more serious -- and relaxed -- places to dine close to Westwood Village. The simple yet handsome dining room works well for many occasions: it can be romantic, it suits the needs of business people and it is also an ideal restaurant to bring visiting relatives. The kitchen prepares a wide range of intriguing pasta dishes -- some hearty, some delicate, most of them noteworthy. Deftly prepared classic northern Italian entrées, most reasonably priced, range from veal scaloppine to osso buco.

My daughter and I celebrated an early Valentines Day at La Bruschetta. We were welcomed by Angelo the owner. Our meal was delicious. The waiter was attentive and friendly. We look forward to coming back soon.

Been going every Friday for 10 years...only place in West Los Angeles where the food is dependably good, the atmosphere is pleasant, you can have a conversation, and the service is truly outstanding. Angelo and his son are wonderful hosts. Waiters are professionals.

Our party of three enjoyed a total of two glasses of wine to start the evening off. Two puree of vegetable soup were excellent. The Cacio Pepe pasta was also very good. I had the lasagna which was mediocre as was the bruschetta that they serve to start the evening off. Their bread is good. Our friend seemed to enjoy her appetizer size of mussels. We had one crème brulee that was delicious. The owner is always most hospitable and his son, Robert, did a good job as our waiter. No complaints on the level of service. Cost for the three of us was $137.00 including tip.

The staff treats you like a close friend. My mother was born in Sicily and I grew up with traditional italian meals. The food at la Bruschetta reminds me of the home cooking of my mother and grandmother. It is fantastic.

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.

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!!
