You will feel as if you've traveled back in time to Old Italy. Tanino Drago grew up in a small town in Sicily. His father made the family's wine, cheese and olive oil. His mother made the fresh pasta and bread. Tanino it seems was destined to master the art of fine Italian cuisine. He worked at his uncle's trattoria and studied at the Giarre Culinary School. It all comes together beautifully at Tanino's in Westwood. The Renaissance-style building was designed by Paul Williams and built in 1929.

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 flavors of all the dishes and all the sauces are fantastic😀
Only a well trained chef with years of experience could master this type of consistency.
