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.

La Bruschetta has been a solid choice for traditional and innovative Italian food for many years. The owner, Angelo, is welcoming and wait staff is very good. Prices are very fair and quality is tops.

Great dining atmosphere like a real dining room and since we dine earlier than most and the restaurant wasn't full conversation was not drowned out by loud music or TV. In whole a pleasant experience with attentive service and good food.

We eat at La Bruschetta very frequently and never have a bad experience; so, when we do, it's
unusual. This was one of the times it was less than what we expected.

La Bruschetta is a great favorite of mine and I've been going there for years. I've lived for several years in Italy so I know excellent Italian cuisine and La Bruscetta has it ! The wait staff is always very welcoming and accommodating. The ambience is also very classy and it is a lot quieter then most Los Angeles restaurants which I really appreciate. This time their selection of background music seemed a little but that is my only complaint.

I have been dining at La Bruschetta for over 16 years and have enjoyed each and every meal that
I have eaten. The ambiance is perfect - noise level is moderate so desired conversation is welcome -
so many of the staff members have been there since the day my husband I walked in the door over
16 years ago - and Angelo is absolutely the perfect host.

If you are in the mood for a delicious meal and the perfect atmosphere go to La Bruschetta.

It is the best in Westwood and competes with the BH standards on equal footing g. Waiters are pros- Angelo the owner is smooth and friendly. The team in the kitchen are super- consistent and always on target.

We were the last diners to leave last Saturday night. We never felt rushed, the service was attentive, but not tooo much! My steak could have been more tender but it was cooked exactly as I asked. The waitress asked if she could replace the steak but I declined...and ate it the next day — cold!

We met some family members that we hadn’t seen for a while for dinner here. This turned out to be an excellent venue. It’s quiet enough to enjoy conversation and the food was just delicious. They do not have a full bar but that’s ok with us as we’re wine drinkers. Two people had chicken dishes and they can be prepared many ways: Piccata, Milanese, etc. Other main courses our party enjoyed included spaghetti carbonara, rigatoni with meat sauce and lasagna. All excellent. For dessert, two split tiramisu and others had gelato: chocolate, strawberry and blood orange. So tasty and refreshing! I highly recommend La Bruschetta!!

Last night was our third time at the restaurant. And with each visit it just gets better and better! We imagine we are just trying new things that we hadn’t tried before, so in our experience of their incredibly tasty creations keeps expanding!

I had a hard day, so right as we sat down I asked that they make me a fancy espresso drink that they don’t usually make. It was made to perfection. I’m not kidding! Then came the antipasto — Insalata di Barbabietole e Burrata. It was amazing. Our dinners were Parmigiana di Melanzane e Polpette di Carne (me) and Risotto con Gamberoni allo Zafferano (my fiancé). I wanted to eat the entire plate but forced myself to keep half of it so I could enjoy it again today!

We both agree that La Bruchetta just rose to the top of our favorite $$$ restaurants list. And it’s definitely our favorite Italian restaurant in L.A, along with The Factory Kitchen.

Can’t wait to go back!

My wife and I love La Bruscetta. It's a lovely family owned restaurant with a friendly, competent wait staff and the food is a great. If there's a better lasagna in Los Angeles we haven't found it.
This is our go to for a special evening.
