A relaxing quiet place and decent dinner. Perfect location for civil conversation and no loud music to scratch your ears and no desperate models on parade to scratch your eyes.

Italian based food but not only this place is friendly, always have a table in this large dining room and welcome you warmly. Food is generally organic, generous and fresh, angel hair pasta with artichoke, sole with couscous... I never have space for dessert but they look fantastic. They screen Charlie Chaplin movies.

From the delicious bread and dipping sauce, the fish and chips appetizer, the kale salad, my blue cheese burger, my daughter's penne pasta in red pepper sauce, and my wife's veggie burger, the food...

You can always count on Puran's for great service and excellent food. Try it when in the Los Feliz neighborhood.

Puran's is a cozy, welcoming restaurant with fresh, natural, tasty food. A great place for a first date, because it's romantic but not too formal. The kitchen is integrated next to the dining room, which adds to the homey, sort of country French atmosphere. Bet you can't get enough of the incredible sauce they offer for dipping your warm bread.... More

We ordered carry-out from Puran's and couldn't have been happier. Ready when promised, and everything delicious: signature roast beet salad was a different and very good take on this over-done staple; caprese salad classic and fine; charbroiled steak w/ pomegranate sauce, baked potato slices and spinach a standout; yummy angel hair pasta with artichoke is gourmet comfort food; and the...
