The ambiance is beautiful so this would be a nice place for a date but they are also very welcoming to my children. I love the bar tender - so nice and sweet to my kids. He makes them mocktails and talks them... More

Villetta creatively uses outdoor space with heat lamps, a fireplace mixed with in-door seating to create a great dining experience. We were a party of 8 and we were all able to speak with each other. Sitting outdoors creates a comfortable space without any noisy background the accompanies restaurants with low ceilings or small rooms. The food is great, authentic... More

Went to Villetta with friends and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. It's got a 'beautiful people' vibe to it with the mostly white, over-sized decor set on a lovely patio curtained off from 26th Street outside. The food is delicious... excellent Italian food, though has a classic Continental feel to it. Thin crust pizza and salad appetizers, grilled... More

Superb Italian restaurant in Brentwood/Santa Monica. Hot spot, trendy, but not touristy, nice and low key. We had a special with shrimp, scallops and beets that was superb. The pastas are all luscious, and the braised rib was very authentic Naples style, also excellent. Service is very good. It is on the pricey side, but is a must go for... More

This restaurant is super charming and romantic. The food was great and service impeccable. Some of the portions are on the small size but my wife and me love it this way. We will be back many times.

This is a place that you should not miss. Food is great, service is exceptional specially if you get Francisco (I am not sure of the spelling) and the atmosphere is awesome specially in the front patio. Antonio (the owner) makes sure you will have a great time and your waiters are there to add to that. Added to all... More

This restaurant is quietly hidden off of 26th Street, near San Vicente Blvd., and seems to be a local favorite. When you enter, there is beautiful patio seating with a small dining room and bar off to the side. However, there is also another back patio area, with 2 additional dining rooms that are probably quieter than the front areas.... More
