There are a few locations for Bossa Nova, but if you're from out of town this Sunset location is the one you wanna come to. Los Angeles is all about Location! Location! Location! It's everything! And this IS the best location. Near Hollywood so this makes it close to all the tourist spots. People from out of town will ALWAYS... More

For a tourist area like LA in Sunset Blvd/Hollywood you can't beat the price, portions and quality. Definitely a great restaurant for a family of 5. The pastas are excellent the mama's salad is very good. I ordered the presto pasta it was excellent. Will go back again.

The grilled shrimp was wonderful...loved the mashed potatoes and asparagus too. My husband really enjoyed his spinach and olive pizza. Good service and generous portions.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone as it provides a massive variety of different foods to suite any pallet. The service was amazing and all our... More

Amazing service - wonderful menu and fantastic prices. I usually like to write a lot more but cannot fault this place. Be prepared to wait at busy times, however. It is hugely popular, but definitely worth it!

This was by far one of the best reasonable priced restaurants in LA. The pricing was cheap and the portions were very very large. Scenary was ok. Not too fancy. The food was amazing. I had steak of course but my friend had the pesto chicken pasta and it was one of the best dishes I ever tasted.

Bossa Nova is a gem. We were looking for somewhere to eat on our first night in LA when we came across Bossa Nova, and we sure glad we did! I had the pesto pasta and my boyfriend had the carbonara pasta, both were delicious! I've never had such a great pesto sauce, paired with the sundried tomatoes, it's all... More
