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.

A number of years ago, we went often to Locanda Veneta, but had not been there in the last couple of years so we want to try them again. The food portions were solid, especially for the price; however the quality of the food was not as good as we recalled. It was fine but nothing memorable or that would cause us to return. The service was warm and helpful. Shame the food was uninspired.

A business dinner during pandemic times! What a novelty. But went without a hitch at a trusted restaurant that has been outstanding for longer than I can remember. The service and food was incredible, and with great comfort despite being outside and the Covid sanitation requirements.

Loved the food but they had us sitting literally on the street right off the curb, tons of cars pulling up within a foot of our table. Homeless people fist fighting across the street to cap off an expensive valentines dinner. We asked if they could move our table before our food came out due to how bad the ambiance was the waiter asked his manager who came back and said no. Won’t be back

I'm very grateful to have been able to have a Valentine's Day meal during these restricted dining times. The food was wonderfully prepared and delicious. The menu is filled with so many items that looked great it was difficult to decide, however, with the perfect advice from my server, everything was terrific. The pasta dish was so full of flavor. The A5 wagyu beef was only surpassed by Chef Andre's treatment as it was perfectly prepared. I hope to return soon.

I had lunch there with a friend and everything was delicious. We had a lunch special. I had soup and salad and he had salad and pasta. We both were really happy. In fact we both loved the Caesar salad.

I asked for my steak to be medium well and the inside was extremely undercooked. For the price I paid for the meal, the steak should have been done much better.
