a very enjoyable dinner, would definitely go back again
the pasta is especially good
Great food, service, and ambience. The best place to meet for lunch in Westwood...central for meeting others since it's close to 405.
Amazing experience...from the service to the ambience & the food was simply delicious
We requested with the waiter to order our salad first, and then we’d put in the order for our entree. The waiter said that the chef only wanted to have the full order received at the same time. Shouldn’t it be what the customer wants?
The food (lasagna) was very bland - no flavor at all, and a very small, flat portion. SO not worth the cost no matter how nice the restaurant is. We had to fill-up on the bread. We also got far more table service from the busman than from the waiter.
I was told on the phone that they could “squeeze us in” for a reservation, but the place was not at all busy when we got there. I understand marketing tactics, but not plain misrepresentation.
Delicious food great service
Outstanding Italian menu in a lovely historic Westwood Village space. We enjoyed linguine mare and mushroom risotto but on other occasions have ordered grilled branzino and paparadelle with lamb ragu. All up to the Drago family standard.
Excelent the best in Westwood
great for any ocassion
Love the food wine service and ambiance can’t wait to come back again
Papardelle homemade and delicious! Had to try a couple wines but did find one we liked. No valet parking so be aware. Otherwise food and ambiance great!
What a wonderful find for Westwood village. Terrific space with historic overtones, great food and terrific service. A find - and worth the journey across town.
Tanino is a nice neighborhood Italian restaurant, but in my previous experiences, the food was better. Tonight, however, it really wasn't great. More concerning was the fact that no one seemed to notice. Twice my orders were prepared wrong. My artichoke and arugula salad was drowned in dressing, but when I asked to have it done again, it came back identical. The issue seemed to be the communication between server and chef because my request for light sauce on the chicken scallopini resulted in "extra sauce." Yet no one bothered to check in and see how it tasted.
The food was average and not prepared as requested, the service was impersonal, and the ambience was depressing. All this for fine dining prices. Only one of the five of us left happy and he had the spaghetti bolognese. All in all, not worth the $$.
Great dinner before The Geffen Theatre event. Love the spinach ravioli and the carpaccio salad. Felt like being in Rome with the inner decor. And we found street parking only a block away. Love to come back for a birthday party or something like that.
Tanino is always a great choice for authentic Sourhern Italian cuisine. Excellent food, service and wine list. Highly recommend!
In an area sorely lacking in great restaurants, Tanino is like an oasis. Wonderful food, great service. If you come to Westwood for the Geffen theater, live in the area or simply want to explore an unsung high quality restaurant, this is the place.
The private room was perfect for our holiday gathering.
