    Absolutely lovely!! Family owned and the staff is the most down to earth and nicest I've yet encountered at any LA restaurant. The soups are incredibly delicous and seafood fresh. What a neighborhood gem. This was my second visit and I will return again and again. Also a bonus is they have a parking lot so parking is quite easy, a rarity in LA LA land.

    My friends and I LOVE coming here! The food is phenomenal, the staff is super friendly and welcoming, and we always have the best time singing, dancing, and laughing with everyone there. I can’t recommend this place highly enough for amazing Italian food and ambience. It feels so authentic too, like you’ve been transported to a little restaurant in Italy. We love it so much and can’t wait to go back soon!

    Having rediscovered Mauro's this past year, I've fallen in love all over again. The food tastes great and looks even better. Their breakfast menu is fantastic (those poached eggs and salmon with cucumber ribbons get me every time). Their lunch salads and sandwiches are delicious. My only menu complaint is that I always want at least three things on it. The nicest, most attentive (but not obsequious) wait-staff in the city.

    I've always loved this place and my recent visit reminded me why. I was lunching with a first timer and when he asked me what's good, I said everything... and I meant it. They have a wide variety of traditional and unique pasta's that are always fresh and light and perfectly pair the pasta with the accoutrements. My friend had a steak sandwich and loved it. And whenever I've had the fish of the day it's been excellent. The salads, soups and starters are great too. We started with the Heirloom Tomato carpacio with burrata and loved their unique take on the classic caprese salad. And I love both the presentation of the desserts and their wonderful flavor. And at a time when most LA restaurant prices have soared, Mauro's still offers a very reasonable value for such excellent food. When you consider the price of most of the clothes at Fred Segal, the lunch is a downright bargain. The decor is casual but elegant as are the friendly and skilled servers and the diners who will often include a celebrity or two. Yesterday I spotted a major movie star of my youth who seemed to be enjoying his lunch as much as I did. Oh, and did I mention the parking? Yes... they have a parking lot. You pull in, find a spot and you're at the restaurant. It's such a pleasure to go to an LA restaurant in a popular neighborhood and find easy free parking. What more can I say. It's my favorite!

    Great chicken Paillard.. My friend loved her penne primavera too. We sat outside and there were a lot of servers checking on us, but not in annoying way. Food was great atmosphere was casual. A little hard to find from Melrose Avenue because the restaurant is in the back of the street. Plenty of parking in the back too.
