Italian
One of LA’s best Italian restaurants, Locanda Veneta aims to transport you to Venice, Italy. Where the freshest and often deceptively simplest ingredients are combined and cooked into art. The cozy room, often dotted with celebs, is elegant but there’s nothing fussy about the menu. Here you’ll find favorites such as a fresh-vegetable minestrone; wild mushroom risotto; and spinach and ricotta cheese gnocchi. Garlic, fresh herbs and olive oil dress many of the pasta, meat and fish dishes; and the veal scaloppini gets a different preparation every night. When an Italian spot is as classic as this, how can you skip a dessert of tiramisu? Our extensive wine list complements your meal, with selections mainly from Italy, France and California.

    Service as always was superb by Massimo. Would not expect anything less. We were with guests last night. The tuna carpaccio was amazing as well as the eggplant appetizer. Our guests had the Chilean Sea Bass which we recommended. They loved it. My wife had the past with the fabulous sauce and as always it was. I had the risotto with Dungeness crab. An amazing choice. Another great dining experience at Locanda. Will be back in a week.

    The place was incredibly overbooked. We arrived at 7:30 and didn’t leave until 10:30. We received our appetizer at 8:00, our main course at 9:30, and our desert at 10:15, which we just took home. There were 2 waiters serving about 25 tables, with 1 of the waiters also hosting. Our server tried his best and would have been great under normal circumstances, but there were just too many people and not enough employees.

    We like this restaurant and have been there many times for the food, ambiance and tolerable noise level. Yersterday was not perfect because the veal was tough and the noise level "energetic". But we'll be back.

    Upon arrival the house was packed and busy. So it took them 5-10 minutes to clear our table and seat us. The food is classical and very tasty. Mushroom risotto was very flavorful. Wine selection by the glass was also very strong and reasonably priced. Got to taste Brunnello and Super Tuscan. Very satisfying.

    What a stroll down memory lane for myself and my wife. We had many happy memories of meals at Locanda Veneta back in the 80's and 90's. Little about the place has changed. A limited but serviceable winelist, friendly staff, an enthusiastic crowd of regulars. The $55 prix fixe menu is a pretty good value of pretty good Italian staples. You can nitpick on the details of the cooking if you like, but no need. The food is just part of the attraction. A tip of the hat though to the pastry chef's rendition of key lime pie though (I know, Italian?), one of the few I have had where the pie had the requisite tangy acidity to balance out the sugar! So, in a nutshell, this was a great meal at what we thought 40 years ago was the epitome of Italian cooking. Its not, but who cares, it was terrific!
