Went for Saturday lunch, but they only had a brunch menu. Nevertheless, exceptional service, a clear attention to detail and great training happening in the kitchen as each dish was fine tuned and delicious. The rabbit sausage pizza a clear stand out for our entire party. The dining room is beautiful and opulent. Excited to try for dinner
Great good and service. Prob best pizza in la!
Wonderful food and beautiful space. The promise of the "best lasagna " fell short. Far from the best I have had other places. The branzino, scallops, pizza are all near perfection. Stunning design. The music started out at the perfect volume but got too loud during the evening. Will definitely be returning.
Food was terrible , hated the lack of atmosphere. Terrible evening.
Terribly disorganized. servers all tried but bad service nonetheless
The best pasta - perfectly al dente, great ragu sauce. Their grilled octopus melts in your mouth.
Phenomenal and very attentive service.
I always have such a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. This place is the perfect gem to impress anyone from a date night to a business dinner.. it’s an outstanding and classy spot.
The food tasted good but a little on the heavier side. I personally had a tough night after eating at vdr. Maybe the flavors were a bit too elaborate for my taste. Definitely not your regular/normal italian restaurant, more of a fusion and definitely a more alternative version of "Italian" cuisine.
The waiters were very sweet and the service was attentive.
Excellent meal from appetizer to pizza to entre.
Delightful setting and we are destined to return very soon for a repeat outstanding culinary experience.
We loved the food and decor of the place, and our server Matthew was extremely delightful and helpful going through all the different options and guiding us through a fantastic dinner
It was amazing
The service was excellent and the food was good. It was a little pricey.
I was disappointed that when we checked in for our reservation the hostess put a time limit on our table. It kind of put an undue pressure on our whole dining experience and frankly ruined the dinner. We weren't informed of the time limit when making our reservation and probably would have picked somewhere else to have dinner had we known upfront when making the reservation.
Tried this place for the first time, and I will definitely be coming back. The branzono is perfectly cooked with a crispy skin, with a delicious sauce. The fig bruschetta really pops, and the pizzas all have a flavorful crust with just the right “chew” to it. And you MUST have the chocolate pot de creme for dessert.
We liked at everything! My drink of mezcal had just the right amount of kick . The avocado appetizer was a unique take on guacamole and tasted perfect. We're also tried the steak which was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The pot de creme desert was a little too rich.. the ambiance was great..
This is possible our favorite Italian in LA now. An exciting menu because it really reflects flavors of Italy. Dishes that aren't in every other Italian restaurant in the US. Bravo to the chef and owner!
Wonderful and great and friendly staff. Chris is helpful
I enjoy going all the time.
Horrible experience overall. We had a confirmed reservation for dinner and still had to wait for one hour to get a table. We were a party of three and they sat us in a table for two. It took another 40 minutes to get a proper table for dinner, which we only got after following up with the maitre d’ who was rude and unapologetic. The food was mediocre and service was lackluster.
Had dinner to celebrate a birthdate had a great time, good food, great service and great wine
The restaurant is gorgeous! The service was very strange! It seemed the communication was lacking. We didn't know who our waiter was as three different staff members approached our table for drink orders. The menu is VERY basic and they do not add extras. I ordered the truffle scramble and was excited to try it out. When my plate arrived it was a slice of toast cut in half with scrambled eggs on top. THAT IS ALL! NOTHING ELSE. No breakfast potatoes...NOTHING. My friends both ordered the Salmon eggs Benedict and said it was bland and lacked flavor. Their plates also only came with bread and the salmon and eggs on top. After our meal the entire staff seemed to disappear for the next 30-minutes and I had to track down an employee to get our bill. I don't plan on dining nor will I suggest this place for dining!
The $20 cocktail was not good at all, I almost sent it back (and wish i did).
The pizza was wonderful. I really enjoyed the fish, my fiancee did not.
We found the server pushy and somewhat inattentive. Probably will not go back.
Cute fun decor great food
I've been several times now -- always a solid experience. Beautiful decor, very comfortable and welcoming. I've used it for both a business dinner, as well as dinners with friends. Food has been great, and has a "hot spot" vibe without being too much of a scene.
Food, service and drinks were wonderful.
What a wonderful place. I will come back again.
Karissa was great. Such great service!
Incredible food and service. Perfect ambiance.
Love this place. Been twice, now. Great service and amazing food.
The meal was amazing, everyone in our party was pleased with their food and drink selection. The service was stellar, our server and the waitstaff did not miss a beat. Highly recommend Viale dei Romani.
Great hospitality. Wonderful food. All staff members including valet Parker’s are great.
An excellent meal with great service. White truffle gnocchi, the house pasta bolianaise along with the Burratta salad were delicious.
Great food and service. Stylish and great ambience.
Coming back for more! Please, thank Francois once again for making our evening perfect.
One of the best meals I’ve enjoyed in Los Angeles. We ordered a lot, and all the dishes we fantastic, except for just one. The highlights were the uni, then we ordered another uni, the rabbit pasta dish was amazing. I also had the bone marrow, which was prepared perfectly, though I do wish they might serve sea salt, micro greens and crostini to help offset how rich the marrow is...but it was still great. Only a fried rice dish didn’t impress as much. Service was outstanding from our waiter and sommelier. The waiter was a real knockout, attentive and friendly, and it seems an amazing artist, with some of paintings in the wall. Sommelier was knowledgeable, friendly and very considerate of our tastes and price point. Loved the setting and decor as well. Will be back many times!!
Good setting and nice fresh tastes in WeHo set inside the lobby of the Kimpton La Peer Hotel.
Had a great meal, service and overall experience! We had the three course meal and it was worth every penny! Tons of food customized to our liking in a fantastic setting.
Our server was VERY ANNOYING. She treated us like we had never been to a restaurant before and was promoting the most expensive items on the menu.
Had a friendly and attentive waiter, Jared. He recommended the tasting menu for our party of 6 with wine pairings. The Tuscan tasting menu had good portions and was beautifully plated and thoughtfully seasoned. It was my birthday and they brought a delicious upside down pineapple cake topped with a candle. We also sat outside and it was a great atmosphere to spend a night celebrating with friends. At the end of the night, the executive chef, Brian Bournmann came to speak to us and took a picture. A splendid evening!
Everything was good. My only comment is when I asked for a second glass of Pinot Grigio, the waiter forgot about it. The restaurant has great food and atmosphere. I would expect the service to be the same.
Food and Service was no value for money. Pasta dish was made with sauce that was old and to reduced , salty. Very disappointing considering how good the food and service was when the restaurant opened.
