Truly an amazing dining experience. The service was amazing and every plate was a top 5 version of that dish if not the best I've ever had (the meatballs are undoubtedly the best I've ever had). On top of it all, it felt like we walked right out of LA and into the east coast! Being from Philly, I felt right at home!
Fabulous service . Foods was all awesome. Near veal parmigiana I have ever had anywhere in world
Great old-school Italian-American food. Excellent service.
After taking a year-long pause from dining out, we returned to Rao's full of expectations. ALL OF THEM were exceeded. The service, food quality, hospitality (Patrick & Johnnie) exemplified how well prepared (and grateful) the entire Rao's team was to welcome Angenlinos back. As always, portions are substantial, drinks are generously poured, and the wait staff timed everything so well that it wasn't just a "bite" - instead it was a true dining experience.
GREAT TO BE BACK!
Excellent home style Italian food, service was amazing
Birthday dinner for my wife. The service and food were excellent. She’s been to Rao’s in New York and LA. Just a perfect place for a fun evening with great food.
Food not that great but service was truly excellent!
Rao's is back with service, tasty food that hits the belly in style.
The food is excellent! The martinis are superb! The service is top rate and the atmosphere is very old New York and so this makes a great culinary adventure of the first class!!!
Food was great as always, the service was also fantastic. Their outside seating was really nice as well, though I can't wait to sit in one of their big booths again.
This place is amazing as always. A bit of new York swagger but the food backs it up.
As always, the food and service was incredible. We had the Sunday special, we will definitely be back again soon.
Old style charm, impeccable service, warm atmosphere, delicious and simple Italian cuisine, excellent wine list-can’t say enough positive things about Rao’s. Special commendation to the busser who appeared out of nowhere to immediately assist when my dinner partner’s red wine spilled on the table. You can tell the employees care about the level of service. Everyone had a great attitude.
Can’t wait to return!
Good food, good services from check-in, valet parking, server and managers ask make sure everything's is good. Food is very big portion. Friendly and manner place to come back. Marguerite is very good.
Wonderful dinner. Extremely fresh seafood salad. wonderful, plump mussels in a rich sauce, spectacular lady's purse pasta with sage butter, silky veal marsala. attentive, friendly service from both ur server and the managers. Thoroughly satisfying experience all around.
First time visit last Saturday! From the moment we walked in I felt transferred back to an older, simpler time. The atmosphere here is wonderful.
The food is even better!!! I’m still dreaming about the meatballs, likely the best I’ve ever had.
Service was perfect and everyone was so friendly.
The absolute best Italian food you will ever have. Top notch restaurant.
it's always a pleasure to dine at Rao's............our favorite!
It is always a pleasure to have dinner at Rao’s
Our waiter and all of the staff we spoke with were perfect. They really added to our dinner. It was a wonderful evening. Too much food but EVERYTHING Was delicious. Loved the Sunday Gravy. Now one our favorite restaurants!
Run, don’t walk!
What a great institution this place is. The food is simple and classic but SO good and the service is meticulous and warm. We had a wonderful evening there - my twin daughters were celebrating their birthday at a separate table with some friends and we were so well taken care of. Amazing place!
All was perfect
Excellent dining experience. We started with the meatball appetizer, which was amazing. My husband ordered the veal marsala and I ordered the pesto pasta dish. Both were thoroughly enjoyed. My pasta was obviously handmade, cooked perfectly, and had a light lemony cream sauce with the added crunch of roasted pine nuts. Yummy! The service was friendly, attentive, and impeccable. Would definitely eat here again.
First tune here. Will be back soon. Great food, staff and ambience. Johnny Roast Beef gives RAO its 6th star!
Amazing food, excellent service and lovely ambience at Rao’s Hollywood. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner celebrating a family milestone. Every dish was delicious and the service was impeccable. Look forward to returning.
Best night in a long time ♥️This restaurant! Highly recommend 😊
Friendly wait staff. Valet Parking since street parking can be difficult to find. Sat outside on the sidewalk. That ambiance is not the best, but inside is very nice and I think they might have some seating on a back patio too. Tried the meatballs, which were tender and flavorful. Also had a overly salad with fresh arugula, red onion and tomato. Fantastic citrus vinaigrette. Paired well with the meatballs. My husband had shrimp scampi which he enjoyed. Large shrimp and a good sauce. Tried the cheesecake for desert, which I liked but not my husband. It had a marzipan flavor to it and is very rich. Huge slice. Good quality food, but slightly overpriced. Its ok though...overall I like this place and would return to try some of the other more interesting dishes on the menu.
Always great and the people who work there treat you like family.
Server Daniel was so amazing and funny. Highly recommend
Best Italian food in the area by far. Really great menu and amazing staff
Excellent, quality,atmosphere,delicious in every bite. Over ordered but it’s showing to be RAO’s feasting tomorrow!
outstanding. as always. try it once, you'll keep coming back.
Love this place! Great Italian food - get the meatballs. Excellent attentive service and a solid experience. Highly recommend.
Had the most amazing dinner last night. My guests loved the food, and the hospitality of the management, staff made us feel right at home. We had the stuffed mushrooms, beet salad, and meatballs with Rao's marinara sauce - we ate every bit.
Their wine list is stellar and you will find greate examples of Italian from every region. Many selections are moderately priced and you will also find Outstanding 100 point wines. They have something for everyone. My guests were very pleased with wine by the glass.
We thouroughly enjoyed our dinner.
I think reviews for Rao’s are probably not needed unless some rare instance happened where something wasn’t up to par, AND management didn’t fix it. Service was fun. Food was perfect. Cocktails were delicious. For the style, Rao’s is a staple for what restaurants should be. Zero complaints.
This restaurant should have 2 Michelin stars! Best meatballs+cheesecake I've ever had in my LIFE! Chef Mike,waiter Kevin+ maitre'd Johnny are 5🌟too!
Rude waiter and mediocre food considering the price!
