Nice restaurant on the Sunset blv., simple menu, plain design, tasty food. Try their pizzas, but make sure you you've got room, large pizzas are actually large, they mean it! Try to start with a small soup before pizza. Come earlier, place gets packed up after 17.30.

Everytime I go I try something new off of the menu and they have not let me down yet..I tried the cajun chicken last night and it was to die... More

Just came back from this restaurant with my wife. Fantastic food and big portions. The seabass risotto was simply beautifull. Lovely service; the gentleman serving us was very friendly, funny and helpful. Price for starters, mains and a bottle of wine came to less than 100$; unbeatable. Highly recommended.

A Zagat rated resto. Tried the picanha steak. It comes out with rice with some nice side dressing including caramel banana. The taste are super delicious. A must try in my opinion. Service however are kind of slow maybe too many people and less server.

Food is good, service is engaging chilled out, come late they are open until 4am Friday and Saturday and often has a line outside at midnight. Worth the wait, the staff will keep you informed and entertained while you wait. Comfort food will make you come back!

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.
