Great place to go for a special occasion. The outside dining is covered so is not really outdoors
Great server, Noah, was excellent!!!!
Outstanding! Best Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. Noah our server was terrific.
Always the best!!!
Good quality and portions. Engaging host and servers.
As always food was exceptional. Some of the best Italian food in the city. Ordered a little too much but took home and enjoyed the next day. Our server was beyond incredible! Can't wait to come back.
Great service, food and wine! Was a great experience!
Awesome. Can’t find better Italian
I had requested a table in middle or back room, not front by the door as it was a special occasion.
When we arrived, we were seated at the table right next to the front door in front room!!!!! On our own, we moved one table over. We expressed our disappointment
Also the quality of the food has gone down hill. Chicken was not tender,the orrechiete pasta with sausage had only 4 piece of sausage!!! We were asked if we wanted bread for the table and we said sure…didn’t know that also came at a cost! Talk about nickel and diming us!
So the ambiance sucked, food was mediocre if not poor and the bill was outrageous for what we experienced!
Will not go back and will definitely share our experience with others so they don’t waste their time and money.
We were really early for our reservation and the two lovely hostesses were able to accommodate and seat us right away. We were very appreciative for them going above and beyond. Our server was very attentive to our needs and helped us with our dinner selections. Dinner was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly.
First time dining at Rao’s Hollywood. We celebrated my husband’s birthday with great food and lots of laughs. All the staff is friendly and have a great sense of humor. The food is finger licking good and we enjoyed every minute. Great experience and we will be returning again.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion! The food, drinks, ambience and staff were outstanding.
Staff was very nice and knowledgeable. Great food and wine selection.
The food was amazing! Had the lobster for two. The pasta was the perfect el dente. Service was a bit slow and our server was lacking a bit of personality, but i witnessed a few other servers that looks had a much better and warmer energy. Overall great restaurant food and ambiance.
The food couldn’t be more authentic or delicious. The waitress was incredible and the potions are meant to be shared. Our group of 7 enjoyed each and every dish. Wonderful experience.
Always an awesome experience
Good was mediocre and slightly overpriced. Did not feel welcomed when we walked in. Never knew our server’s name. Probably won’t be coming back.
We can’t say enough about Rao’s. Consistently the food is out of this world. We’re always treated like family. I’ve lived in LA all my life and can say if you want a great meal, come to Rao’s.
Always an amazing experience the food, drinks, and atmosphere.
One of our party asked for something off menu and they were only too happy to prepare. The portions are generous, service was very attentive and everyone had a great experience. Would certainly go back.
What a great place! The staff is amazing and the food was incredible.
Great service, old Italian Hollywood feel and yummy food
There are so many better Italian restaurants in Los Angeles. Not sure why anyone would spend the money to go to this one.
best Italian food in LA. Just like NY. great service
Awesome experience! Great food.
Great food and great service
Great food, excellent staff, great space.
The service was fantastic and very friendly. The food was also amazing, and there was more than enough in the portions for leftovers, which I’m actually enjoying right now. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it’s worth it for a fun night out.
Fun old school vibe. Thought the food was very good but didn't consider it exceptional, except the meatballs which were incredible. Service was outstanding. Would definitely go again.
Great time! Super cute and yummy food. I loved the old romantic songs they played, made me want to come back for a date! The cheesecake was magnificent
The staff was so nice and the service was excellent. The food was delicious. The room was really cool and the location was great. Highly recommend.
Phenomenal food and the meatballs remain the best I’ve ever had
Party of six. Late add on to party of 5 res. No problem. Great food. Amazing service. Made for a special occasion. Highly recommend.
Amazing as always at Rao’s!!!
Tracy is an amazing sommelier! She paired everything perfectly. Everything was absolutely outstanding!!!!
Great old school Italian. Best meatballs and Milanese in LA.
Great place to dine with friends/family! Delicious food and excellent service!
Had such a great time celebrating my wife’s 50th. All of the staff including manager made her feel really special on her big day, and to that I am extremely grateful. Food and drinks were fabulous! We will definitely be back!
Food was exceptionally bland. Shrimp Scampi tasted like pasta with white wine no butter or garlic or SALT. Dessert and drinks were good. The waiter was nice but tried 50 times to up sell us...
Rao's is my new favorite go to restaurant! I've been buying their sauce at the market for years. And now to have a Hollywood location is fantastic! Everything on the menu is a slice of heaven. I was there last week and the two Kevin's that waited on us were the best! I am going back tonite for another birthday celebration! I highly recommend Rao's!
