One of Los Angeles's long time surviving Italian restaurants

This is a somewhat romantic restaurant, that has been in Los Angeles for about twenty years or so. Always consistent and wonderful management!

Well I must say my GF and I had a most enjoyable experience here. I had been to this place several times many years back so it was suggested we try it together. The ambiance is warm, quaint and on the romantic side. It kind of reminds us of the NYC type neighborhood Italian restaurants we've been to and even... More

We entertained our LA family at this very good restaurant. The evening was marvelous, The staff was most accommodating. Food was just terrific (several of us had the wonderful Berundo Fish Special). You could not do better.

My husband and I stumbled on this place while hungry and walking in one of least pedestrian friendly areas of LA. Good thing we did! Looks a bit like a hole in the wall and then you walk in and realize it is old world greatness. The Italian greeting from the moment we walked in told us we were going... More

Our family regularly visits Los Angeles, and when we can we eat at Locanda Veneta. The restaurant is small, cozy and the staff, which we have seen in-place for years, is always warm. The food is simply amazing; we ordered the San Remo salad, the Sea Bass and the Lentil spaghetti. All the food was served piping hot and was... More

I have lived less than a mile from this place for a decade. Went for the first time this weekend, and was blown away. We went for Dine LA Week. Not only was the food very good, the portion sizes were massive. Our table had the stuffed pork chop, chicken, rabbit, veal, and carbonara--all were great.
