I come back here over and over again. It is insistent in quality of food and service with classic Italian fare and classic Italian hospitality. A family run business with real people who care about their customers and their dishes.

We were visiting our son who lives in Santa Monica. We had dinner at La Bruschetta and it was a great experience. My mother grew up in Sicily, so my family is used to authentic Italian cooking and we were not disappointed. The food was great and the staff made sure everything was to our liking. They were friendly and clearly showed they cared about our dining experience. We will definitely return when we visit our son again.

Recently hosted a birthday dinner for five on a Saturday night. While the restaurant was full we could still hear ourselves talk. The food was OUTSTANDING and the service was very good. When the air conditioning was cranked up a little too hight, they adjusted it immediately. Didn't love the valet charge but it's LA, what can you do!

This is an unusual dining experience in Los Angeles. The food is marvelous, the service is friendly, and the setting is very rare in Los Angeles in that it has a pleasant noise level --just the murmur of conversations, not the usual distracting noise. It is really an oasis of fine dining in a city of noisy intrusive restaurants. The Italian cuisine is delicious and truly authentic. I'm giving La Bruschetta my highest recommendation.

Angelo the owner is a gem. He makes everyone feel at home and he knows everyone. The waiters are great and knowledgeable and the food is always delicious, from starters through dessert.
We need to eat here more often.

It was my first time eating there and was very happy. I love Italian food, and was very happy with the parts that I ordered. The Caesar salad was great also. The owner couldn't have been nicer. I would highly recommend La Bruschetta.

I have been a customer of LaBruschetta for over 14 years and I have enjoyed every meal at this wonderful restaurant. Angelo Peloni, the owner, is so friendly and very professional at his 35 year tenured restaurant in Westwood Area of Los Angeles. This is the place for Lunch and Business Meetings during the week. The Week-ends are marvelous for couples on a romantic date or for families who wish to gather at a place with a "home like" atmosphere.

Try it you will like it.

This was a combination birthday and holiday gift for family and friends.
My parents had one of the best evenings of their lives!
My mom raved about the lovely decor, the quiet, the delicious food, the excellent service and the personal attention.
The owner, Angelo and his son, Robert took such good care of my parents and friends!
As the absent host, I missed out on an incredible dining experience, but I look forward to my own very soon. La Bruschetta is a keeper!
