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.

Twice this holiday and both times excellent . If you want great Italian food with the mix of California and Italy come here . The dough balls just keep coming . The dishes are packed with flavour . The guys serving add to the whole thing as do the other guests . Don't be fooled by the plastic chairs ,... More

That way we all got a little of everything!! Lots of food!! We all loved it! In a busy location so park a couple of blocks away... More

Staying a block away. Walked up on a Saturday night. Was quoted 5 to 15 mins for a table, was seated in only 5 mins. Waiter was very attentive. We both ordered the Lobster Linguini. It came very quickly and was very good!! Fun atmosphere. Definitely will be back!!

We had one night in LA to meet up with my Husbands work colleagues from the LA office. We were a party of 9. I hadn't met them before and wasn't sure how the night would go but what a fun night. The atmosphere relaxes you straight away. The food was to die for, the garlic balls were scrumptious. The... More

I recently stayed in a house on the Canals, and C & O Trattoria was one of the first places I came across. I happened to walk by around 7:30 on a Thursday night, and I was seated at one of the outside tables almost immediately. The restaurant was packed, but the service was fast. I was given fair warning... More

Whenever I come to visit friends in LA, we go here to eat! The food is so delicious, it's one of my favorite meals when visiting. And let's not forget to mention the garlic bread balls - Wow!!!

We haven't been to C & O in a few years and were happy to see that the food hasn't changed. It is good Italian food only a few doors from the sand.

Just up from the beach, C&O is a very popular spot with both in-door and patio dining. If you like garlic, you'll have no problem getting your fill here. They serve hot garlic flavored rolls, right out of the oven, thru the entire meal. Their servings are plentiful and tasty. Not the best Veal Milano that I've ever had, but... More
