What Insiders Are Saying
A classic neighborhood spot, with pasta worth driving across the city for.
It was awesome! Great food, ambiance and service!
Osteria La Buca is by far my favorite Italian. I finally tried some new items this time. I highly recommend the roasted potatoes, which were fantastic. I normally order the pappardelle bolognese (which is fantastic), but this time went for the short rib ravioli. It was so delicious. I have also tried the cacio pepe which I highly recommend. Other favorites include the house-made ricotta (a must have!), the buca farm salad, and the burrata. Honestly, you really can't go wrong here. If you are unsure, the wait staff is really helpful with recommendations because they love the food, too!
It was great as always love this place
Some of the best Italian food in Los Angeles by far!
Good food and price , highly recommend it . Pasta amazing
This restaurant is perfect for every occasion
I love this place. Their pasta is some of the best I’ve ever tried in my life. You can tell the pasta is handmade and cooked al dente perfectly.
Love this place. Everything we have tried over the years has been delicious!
I've lived in LA so long and have driven past this restaurant countless of times. I've always wanted to try it and when I finally did, it did not disappoint! It has a cozy/romantic ambiance and great for dates and small gatherings. Service was great, I think we had our water filled 10X throughout our dining experience. Food was delicious and you can taste the quality. I would absolutely come back and highly recommend this place.
Nice restaurant. I’d eat there again. Bit chilly upstairs and definitely noisy despite being told it was quieter up there. Food was great. Service was pretty good. It did have to ask for bread a few times despite it being promised to arrive.
Love Osteria La Buca!!! It's my partner & I's chosen date spot.
Really wonderful vibe/ambiance - especially in the upstairs area. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. In terms of appetizers, we had the octopus and brussels sprouts - both superb. However, the two pasta dishes that we ordered, the nero spaghetti and campanelle were very oversalted. The main dishes were my only complaint. Overall, a nice experience.
We had a party of six and they gave us the private dining room-wow. Impressive. Food was palate pleasing, service was impeccable, and the price just right.
The service that we received was absolutely impeccable. A very minor mistake was made with an order, but they went out of their way to make the rest of our experience there so memorable. On top of the incredible service that we had, the food was just as incredible. I could not have asked for a better birthday celebration because of the staff at Osteria La Buca. Everyone must go, I highly recommend!
I love this place. It has become a regular place for me and my friends to go and have a great meal with excellent service. A waiter that was handling another area noticed that my table was wobbly and immediately stopped to correct it. Maybe sounds silly.. but teamwork is the only way any business can truly shine. Get the house ricotta..
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Loved the pizza and the cacio pepe is one of my all time favorite italian dishes. I brought my elderly mother with me and the staff was very patient and nice which can be difficult with her. I will definitely come back again. If you get there early enough, you can probably find free street parking!
One of our favorite restaurants 🎈
The pizza was perfect, exactly what a pizza should be and everything else was okay, but not as excited as it could be. I had the carbonara that our waiter sweared by, the pasta was handmade and fresh but idk something was missing... The dessert was okay too, we had tiramisu and it's a solid 4/5 but something just not as good as it could or should be. Super loud place, we could not hear anything so they seated up upstairs, which was a bit better, but still very noisy. Not a date place if you trying to get to know one another. This place is very affordable, but I think the quality of the food when I'm dining out is much more important, so I probably will not be coming back. There are too many restaurants that server more interesting and flavorful dishes.
Food and service was as expected, amazing. It was my wife’s birthday dinner and we love this place, even when we can’t come here to enjoy the delicious dishes we eat your food through Instagram. Thank you for everything.
The staff created a memorable and delicious experience for our whole family. The food was delicious. The service was attentive, personal, and very prompt.
Great food and the service is amazing.
Loved this restaurant. Great food, great staff and wonderful atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
Food was excellent and service was very nice though sometimes a bit overwhelming. All in all, great experience!
Delicous food. Attentive staff. Lovely atmosphere
All good, music too loud
A truly great dining experience with simple but amazing food, great service and incredibly fresh ingredients.
service was amazing- was greeted warmly upon arriving and our server was so kind and helpful. he also kept refilling our water and another person came to refill when he saw it was empty. at the end of our meal, i had forgotten the leftovers since it was behind me on the wall ledge, and while waiting for valet, the hostess came out and asked if we had left our food and then grabbed it for us. i haven’t had such great service in a really long time. thank you to all the staff!!
Great dinner before going to the Pantages Theater. Excellent service getting us out in time for our show.
Good ambiance, nice staff and delicious fresh pasta made in house.
We came in with high expectations based on a plethora of great reviews, but were blown away by the quality of the food and service we received. The carbonara pasta and guanciale pizza were to die for, and the chocolate mousse was one of the best we've ever had. Definitely our new date night spot, or anytime we're craving delicious pasta at great prices.
Wonderful anniversary dinner. We loved every bite from the brussel sprouts to the bucatini to the delicious butterscotch dessert. You definitely won't be disappointed!
Great food, great Seevice
Great ambiance , everyone that works there is so friendly & nice
We had such a nice time! We were a party of 3 and one of us was late. The hostess seated us anyway and was so gracious to do so. Our waitress was lovely, funny and engaging. Everything was delicious and will be back.
Nice cozy place on the way to Theatre or Disney.
Great meatballs and Cudo!
This is close to where I live. I have eaten here several times and the food has always been delicious. It's a bit loud on the first floor and I prefer sitting on the 2nd floor. My guest enjoyed the food too and that's all that counts!
Fun and delicious. Service was a bit stiff and not super friendly. Very loud and festive!
The place is unbelievably loud. Background music is terrible. Restaurant was so dark that we had to use our phone flashlight to read the menu. Great place if you enjoy shouting at your dinner companion. Food was OK but nothing exceptional.
Lived up to our expectations. Everything was outstanding and service was great even though it was a busy Friday night.
There were 5 in our party, all ages, celebrating an 18 year old. Each one of us ordered a different dish. We all tasted each other's food and not one disappointed! A great restaurant to impress out of towners, but not be totally over the top.
This is my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. The food is outstanding, and prepared beautifully. Everything I've tried is absolutely delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, you won't be disappointed.
