C&O Trattoria (C&O) has been open since 1969. Now a well known Venice Beach landmark, serving Northern Italian breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It has become known for good food and friendly service in a relaxed garden setting. On May 1, 1993, C & O Trattoria officially opened a Northern Italian concept, unlike any other in Los Angeles, serving gargantuan portions of high quality Northern Italian pastas at unbelievably low prices. Add our "Killer Garlic Rolls," nightly sing along, honor wine bar, and friendly team service and you have the C & O Trattoria, one of LA's premier Northern Italian eateries.

Have to agree, the food is very average here. Be prepared for a American Italian meal where quantity is more important then quality

We decided to have dinner here based on the good reviews. The service was great, we had Heather who was very nice and attentive. The garlic rolls were very nice. The meals were average. We had spaghetti bolognaise and chicken parmigiana. Both large sizes, but bland and not the nicest. Service /10 Food /4 We weren't unhappy upon leaving, but... More

Huge outdoor patio (with heaters if it's cold - though there's not any view) with plenty of seating for groups. Love it when they turn up loud the song That's Amore for singing along and the waiters tour the restaurant to clink wine glasses. Food ranges from average to very good (have had overcooked pasta a number of times), though... More

Very good service. Food is above average but not gourmet. Fun atmosphere with singing and they brought a special dessert for my son's birthday. Worth a visit is you are in Marina del Rey / Venice.

Delicious hot, buttery garlic rolls are one very good reason to eat here. Also, the salads, pastas and the service are great. I bring visitors here because it's a local and a tourist favorite. Good for groups and right in the heart of Venice--step out and walk it off--the pier is due West.

After reviewing the Friday night Greek show on Venice Beach I was ready to sit down and enjoy a tasty meal of spaghetti and meatballs. I made a great choice. The red wine was great too.

This diner was a pleasant surprise as we reached there 'looking' for a restaurant to eat. The garlic rolls are something whose taste I can never forget, out of this world. Add to that their unending supply. If the precursor is such good, the food obviously ought to be good, and indeed it was. The portion sizes are large, don't... More

Went here after leaving the Hinano Café (bar) and had a bite to eat about 10:00 p.m. We ordered the angel hair pasta and the Lasagna with meat sauce. Both were excellent and were brought right out. Very friendly staff. Would eat here again. Price was reasonable.

I took two LA friends to their favorite restaurant. We enjoyed 1/2 priced bottles of wine that day, which was a bonus, to be sure. The cinnamon bun shaped mini rolls were delicious and it's a never ending dish of those. I had Spaghetti with meat balls, and my friends opted for a baked stuffed mushroom appetizer, and pasta dishes,... More
