Romantic but fun place in Hollywood and a genuine institution. Wine selection is really good but the food is consistently excellent. We go for the same thing every time - seafood salad, chicken parmigiana and the clam linguine. Service is always professional and entertaining. Never disappoints.
This is my favorite dining experience in Hollywood. The food is excellent, the staff friendly (and will remember you if you return), and the patio attractive and quiet. It is hard to do better than a half order of one of their pastas plus a main course. I can't wait until they reopen.
One of our most favorites restaurants in Los Angeles. Never disappoints!
Best service I’ve experienced in LA, amazing food.
Best dining in LA!
Food is excellent as always
Amazing food and great ambiance. Also solid jams!
Wonderful restaurant. Everything was delicious as usual.
The food and service was the bomb
It was PERFECT as usual! Actually, it was the best meal I've ever had in all my trips to Rao's. Incredible.
Food is worst than airplane food.
First time at Rao's Hollywood on Friday (didn't know it was there!). Meat ball appetizer was fantastic, very good Ceasar salad too. Had the Linguini with Clams which was also excellent. Shout out to "Kevin #2" for outstanding service! Will definitely be back.
Outstanding marinara sauce. Great meatballs. The best double pork chop in my life!
Food was excellent, good sized portions and great taste too. Server was attentive and keep us topped up with drinks and asking how our meal was . The downside was when, who I presumed was the Italian owner/manager, walked out and I asked if he was the owner, and without even looking at us simply said "No, I just hang around the place" and walked by. It was just rude. I actually wanted to compliment him on the food, but he came across incredibly arrogant.
We were there for our son’s birthday. The waiter was jubilant but forgot one of our entrees. It was fine, but for the prices we expected top notch service. He also never once asked me if I wanted another drink. I just felt like the service could’ve been stepped up. I also saw a group of waitstaff singing happy birthday to other tables, but he just dropped off a piece of cheesecake with a candle at our table for my 11 year old son. Would have made it feel very special if they had sung happy birthday. Especially for a $250 meal. Left feeling a little short changed as we had been looking forward to this outing for weeks and it was our first time there, and a pretty fancy for our little boy’s bday.
My home away from home! I love love love this restaurant!!
Still the best of the best..if you want great Italian food..great portions...fun and attentive service. And the sidewalk is great..good spacing...see you soon!
The food quality was very upsetting. The sever rushed us out the restaurant & didn’t give me a chance to count change & leave a tip before he took the money off the table
Perfect service, great meal
the meatballs and the pork chops are a favorite of ours, delicious.
eggplant parmesan, and their cheesecake is the best. all the food we have tried is amazing.
They just opened a month ago after the shut down. They have a very nice patio in the back, that is permanent so not "parking lot" quality, and also some tables set up at the entrance on the street. The decor is nice w/an "Italian mob, NYC" vibe; black and white framed photos of Pacino, DeNiro, etc. Our reservation was on Sunday at 5:00 and we were the only ones there for most of the meal. The food and service was excellent. We had the arugula salad, big enough to share, and the eggplant parmesan and veal parmesan, with left overs to take home. The menu is more limited that usual. Very much a comfort food restaurant with good and friendly service.
Delicious food-clams oreganata were exceptional-staff was lovely!
Front desk very nice when I called saying running 10min late due to traffic. Tracy & Johnny Roast Beef both amazing. Gabriel wasn’t attentive. Friendly, but no follow-up. Great bread, but delivered with no butter or olive oil. Wife’s Caesar and my Seafood Salad excellent. Pasta good and cheesecake great. I asked for patio on reservation, but ended up on street. Suggest some plants or something to warm it up.
What a great restaurant. My husband and I went to Rao’s because my husband felt like having meatballs. They were some of the best we’ve ever had! The pasta was so good, as well. Service was excellent. The server was very helpful, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Rao’s.
Great restaurant, great food. So far my best visit to a restaurant during covid times.
Love the food and the service at Rao’s. It’s a true NY Italian dining experience, and we always look forward to going. Also they have an amazing outdoor dining areas that feels like you’re indoors. Rao’s has become our default date night when we’re in Hollywood. It never disappoints.
Honestly it was the best Italian I’ve ever had !
Great and better atmosphere now eating in back door space. Food was perfect.
It was amazing first visit and it won't be our last! Fantastic service, great food and very pleasant patio experience.
Nothing compares!! My go-to with my family. Reminds me of home ♥️
Always a joy to be at Rao’s
Food and service were both outstanding. Patio for outdoor dining is very attractive.
One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to period. The portions are great. I adore the atmosphere. There's a lot of charisma here.
The best food and service one of my favorite’s in Los Angeles.
Dining can be an odd experience during Covid but we had a great dinner at Rao’s for my husband’s birthday. The food was delicious, the cocktails were great, and service was friendly. We’ll definitely be back!
Outstanding. Will be back.
Raos never misses. We love it every time we go!
My wife and I came to Rao's for our 3 year wedding anniversary dinner. As soon as we walked in, I was happy to see everyone masked up and the restaurant checked our temperature in order to comply with California protocol in regards to COVID-19. Once we were seated, my wife and I were both immediately feeling the place. We loved the ambience, vibe and upscale Italian style it had.
The waiters were all very kind and gave great recommendations for appetizers, entrees and wine. We started off with their famous Meatballs and Baked Clams which were so delicious with lots of flavor. For entrees, my wife ordered the Carbonara pasta and I had the Rigatoni Pomodoro in which I added sausage to it and requested it spicy as well. Rao's definitely didn't disappoint with these. Our pasta's were cooked to perfection and you can tell the ingredients were fresh. We washed the amazing food down with a fantastic bottle of Sicilian Red Wine. Worth every penny as it complemented the pasta superbly.
I recommend this restaurant to any body for a cute date night, celebratory occasion, or if you're just in the mood for great authentic Italian food.
Easiest 5 star rating I've ever given. :)
Food is always consistently delicious amd A+ presentation...
