Delicious food, Great Service and not noisy

The Italian cuisine at La Bruschetta is excellent, both the regular menu and the specials. Host Angelo is very welcoming and his son Robert is also very helpful and congenial. There is great food in a relaxed atmosphere which is NOT noisy, all too rare in Los Angeles these days.......

Wonderful food, decent prices --lovely ambiance - very attentive and always present owner. Eggplant parmesean , linguini and clams, lamb chops are among our very favorites . Nice, reasonably priced wine list and white tablecloths. Just south of wilshire blvd. what more could you ask for? Make a reservation!

La Bruschetta is a long-established family-run Italian restaurant in Westwood. We went there mainly on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. Visually it is appealing in a traditional Italian way: brick walls lined with wine shelves, the lighting somewhat subdued but adequate. The noise level is perhaps a bit high at peak times; the only negative... More

La Bruschetta has deservedly earned a loyal West Los Angeles following and has long been one of the most authentic, yet relaxed Italian Restaurants in Los Angeles for over 30 years. The dining room is warm, lovely and brimming with an Italian mentality. It is perfect for a romantic night for two, for friends or for the whole family. The... More

Angelo is the consummate host! He welcomes you with a smile, sits at your table, tells you what the best things to order are and generally makes your experience memorable. The food is outstanding. I definitely recommend the vegetable soup... it is a family recipe and is delicious! Robert, the owners son waited on us and he is a pro.... More

Nice family-owned and run italian restaurant in westwood. Ordered the vealmarsala and it was just as prescribed - thin slices of veal with great flavors. Management is flexible with substitutions especially when an order of gelato comes with 3 scoops - not a big fan of pistachio ice cream - they were happy to replace with chocolate. Received unexpected attitude... More

The food was okay, the atmosphere was okay. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Still, friendly people serving comfortable food is a good thing.

I had an absolutely DELICIOUS dinner last night at La Bruschetta with my boyfriend and daughter. The owner's son waited on us, and was delightful, knowledgeable, and very generous. The gnocchi was the best we had every eaten -- fluffy pillows of melt-in-your-mouth yumminess. Outstanding lasagna -- nothing fancy, just perfect. And the barramundi fish was prepared in the most...

This place accommodated our party of fourteen people with notice. The service was great and the food was delicious. A few items I tried were mussels appetizer good, chicken Milanese very good, salmon great and pesto sauce over gnocchi delicious. Best I've had in awhile.
