Description: 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.

If you've been to some of the outdoor Italian places in the North End of Boston, then C&O will look familiar to you. The Shrimp Papparradelle in lobster cream sauce was excellent, as were the garlic balls for which they are well known. Service was knowledgeable about the menu and wine options and kept our meal moving along at the... More

My friends kept raving about how great this place was, so of course I couldn't wait to try it! Everything about our experience there met my expectations. Our server was very attentive - recommending a few dishes as well as giving us the run down on the wine specials right away. Of course, GARLIC BALLS - how could this not... More

I've been to C&O's several times and there are two great reason why I keep coming back for more... Garlic Balls and the experience! About every 5-10mins, the waiters walk around the restaurant, putting on your table fresh buttery, garlic knots. They are fresh out the oven, oozing with deliciousness! Every time I visit, I pretty much stuff my face... More

Looking for a place to dine before heading to LAX and read all the great reviews. What a mistake. Service was great, food dreadful, 2 toilets for not sure how many people! Never again!

Their rolls...to die for! The best thing is they come in and They have big portions here so even the small bowl would be good for two people. If you have a larger party then get the gargantuan size for a few dollars more. During dinner you can see "That's Amore" and cheers your waiter and such. I suggest making... More

This was probably the best service I've ever received in a Restaurant. The key was that everything seemed seamless and you didn't notice the fluidity with which the whole place ran. The water arrived without you noticing, the orders were taken so quickly, the servers really paid attention to the needs of individual tables, turned up at the right times,... More

For me the food was just average. Not a lot of flavor. But the hot bread rolls are the best. Service was GREAT! Just as we sat. There was the water guy filling our glasses. As he finished the other person gave us menu's. 30 seconds after that was the bread (wow, great bread). Then the waitress took our order.... More

All of you could expect of a italian restaurant: a lot of bread, olive oil, garlic and pasta! Big and tasty portions, and the ambiance transports you to Tuscany saw in moveis. Nice place, great memoreis!

Fabulous welcome from the staff and specially from the boss. They serve you great bruschettas with garlic and the formula with the Magnum of chianti is great.

If you're looking for a quiet, high quality Italian meal, don't visit C&O - it is neither. This is Italian food for the masses - decent sized plates priced cheaply. The entrees were ok - to be sure, we've had worse. The atmosphere, however, leaves a lot to be desired, from the plastic chairs to the pounding music - I... More
