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.

I loved the ambiance and the Nothern Eastern Italia food. I highly recommend to any American to try, and preferably the small portions so they can go through the all courses (menu) from appetizers to first and second course, ending with a nice Italian desert and traditional liquor.

Locanda Veneta is truly one of the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles! A local favorite of mine, this eatery has been offering a traditional and authentic taste of Venetian cuisine for over 30 years, which is a testament to the hard work and passion that Chef Andre and his team bring to the table (no pun intended). The restaurant offers expanded outside seating so that there's plenty of room to fully and safely enjoy the rich flavors of your favorite plate(s). Lastly, be sure to visit them during Dine LA for one of the most varied and generous menus you'll come across during restaurant week! Buon Appetito!

Terrific food. I enjoyed their wonderful lamb shank on polenta; my partner polished off his chicken parm with glee. Good value. Authentic Italian, down to the accents on the servers. Seated outside of course; safe distancing. Well handled all the way around.

John, our server, was fantastic! Great personality and we never needed to ask for anything. The Chef, Andre, stopped by our table and we had a lovely conversation with him. The food is to die for as well. We enjoyed the special, for the evening, risotto with shrimp as an appetizer along with the caprese salad. My husband and I then shared the lamb shank and spaghetti with bolognese sauce. Needless to say, a to go bag was in hand when we left. It was definitely enjoyed the following evening. A definite 10!

The grilled calamari appetizer was delicious & plentiful. The Chilean sea bass was likewise friendly to the palate. They kindly gave me extra arugula as a replacement for the lentils.

Some of the best pasta dishes I've had at an L.A. Italian restaurant. The spaghetti with mushroom and shrimp and the lasagna are particular standouts. Our waiter was charming and the outdoor seating was comfortable and appropriately socially distanced. Locanda Veneta is now one of my favorite spots.

Generous portion of the burrata caprese. Delicious. Dover sole was good, a bit lemony for my taste but that is subjective. Vegetables cooked to perfection. Insalata menu description includes salmon with the pricing. Above it clearly states salmon is an additional charge, but can be confusing if you are not paying attention. We would’ve chosen with the salmon regardless but could see where somebody else may be upset. Service was great. Thankful for the outside dining tables with lots of spacing between. Conveniently located directly across from Cedar Sinai Medical offices. We were seated, ordered, ate and paid the check within 45 minutes which was great because we were between doctor appointments.

While there are other Italians that I like, Locanda Veneta is my favorite. You almost feel like you are in Italy. No "trendy" customers like at Il Piccolino or Madeo, and certainly not their prices. They actaully care if you are having a good dining experience. Massimo, our waiter, was great. I felt sorry for them (and others) for the disruption that Covid-19 has caused and was very happy to get back there!! At Madeo, the owner came over once and apologized for the large, loud group seated next to us. As I left, I said to our dinner companions (who wanted to eat there) that if he was sorry, he could have at least sent over a few cookies for dessert. Our friends comment was: "I guess he wasn't THAT sorry!"
