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.

Food and wine were great. Service was good but I felt very rushed to vacate the table after 45 minutes.

The restaurant had everything in it’s favor - excellent service, food, ambience, wine...didn’t feel like Los Angeles. We will be regulars.

The food was amazing and the service was great! The black truffle risotto was heavenly. I was sad the next morning when I woke up wanting more. Highly recommend.

OMG the food and service here has always been the best. Came here in 1989 for the first time before moving to Los Angeles..and in 1990 we moved here and still dine here. A lot to be said for a place that is still around in this day and age. Wonderful service....Massimo is an absolute delight. Entree portions are generous. I had the Grilled Branzino the other night and it was superb. Food is cooked upon ordering....huge grill. Excellent wines...and the amaretto cheese cake is to die for...home made on the spot.

This used to be a super hot restaurant in the 90's with very difficult reservations. The hip investor type restaurants keep popping up but Locanda is here to stay. Excellent food prepared well and served very hot. Charming small Italian space with tables very close but not a problem.

I've known about the place for a long time, but for some reason had never gone. Went on a date there and the food and ambiance was just perfect. Excellent wine, far above average food, great service and diverse clientele. Loved it and will be going back soon.

It has that european feel of a small neighborhood gem. Cozy tables, friendly people, and outstanding food and service. House made pastas that are authentic and delicious...loved the ravioli.The real deal like in Italy. Fantastic desserts too.

Still one of my all time favorites. Ernesto is a kind, thoughtful waiter. Great wine selection. Everything on the menu is amazing. Great dairy free soups and options. The lamb shank was wonderful.

Great authentic traditional Italian food. It was a surprise birthday celebration for me and they brought out a whole apple tart for the table with ice cream and caramel sauce. Unbelievably great !
