They have one of the best bruschettas I have ever tried. Loved their pasta as well. Their servings are huge, and service was excellent. Would love to come back for sure!

I don't usually comment on the size of a meal but seriously you can share a lot of the entrees with another person. There is be near my house in Weho and one near my work in Santa Monica. I've probably gone eight times between lunch dinner and pick up and was happy with the food every time.

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor. The food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and gave good suggestions about the food. We enjoyed the meat rice and bean combination entrees. I had chicken, my sister had fire chicken, and my brother-in-law had shrimp. All were very tasty. My son had a BBQ pork sandwich, but didn't...

The menu is broad and the quality of food was really good, but it was a bit busy and there was a small wait to get in. The client base was varied so it's hard to determine what kind of vibe they are aiming for but I guess that means there's something for everyone? Worth a visit regardless.

We shared the Bossa Salad with Strip Steak (delicious - marinated perfectly) and the Chicken Skewers from the Bsosa Nova Grill with fried plantains (vegtable and desert all in one!). It all tasted great. Large portions. Excellent team service. Only waited 20 minutes on a March Friday night.

On vacation and googled best restaurants in the area we were walking and this was about a 15 minute walk so we decided to give it a try. It was great. Highly recommended and would definitely go back. Burrito was delicious

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
