Most delicious Italian food in LA - perhaps the entire U.S.

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... read 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.

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.

We just came home from going across Canada and it was my birthday. So we went to this restaurant early in the evening. The food was very good, the service great and the waiter figured out that it was my birthday without being told so the bonus was a very very small square of teramisou which was excellent. I highly...

We arrived just as they were going to close for the afternoon (which we did not know that they close then). Rather than send us away, as other places in L.A. would, Robert Peloni, the owner's son, invited us in. He made us feel like long-lost cousins. He created a salad for one of our party. The calamari was sauteed... More

We went here for a celebration dinner for my daughters White Coat Ceremony. Could not have chosen a better place! Parking was a breeze. We ordered based on the waiters recommendations and the food was fabulous! The owner and his son and our waiter worked in unison delivering our food and drinks (and conversation) and making us feel like we... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of another outstanding restaurant. It is delightful! Very good food, and they modified a dinner to suit our daughter's allergies. Th atmosphere is cozy and yet, upbeat. Very careful attention to details was given by the server.

La Bruschetta is our default choice, whether we have out0of town friends and want to talk, or just family and want to be treated as family. the food and service are consistently very good, the ownership remarkably attentive, the wine choices often original. And we are not alone, almost always others we know with the same familiar feeling enjoying their... More
