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.

While visiting Venice we stopped in for some pasta! They're known for their garlic rolls and wow...they are awesome! Careful not to fill up on them while waiting for your dinner. Their servings are generous and you might not be able to finish it if you fill up on the garlic rolls!! But they are DELICIOUS!!! Must go to!! Friendly... More

While visiting my daughter in Los Angeles, we made a special trip back to this wonderful place. We had stumbled across it while visiting over a year ago, before she moved to LA for law school. Since then, she has returned many times, and agreed that we should return. Why? It is a festive, open-air, fun place with exceptional food.... More

As usual,I looked at Trip Advisor on our visit to Venice Beach to see what others thought, I noticed the good reviews and so we made reservations and popped in. Boy oh boy were we happy we did. It was like being in Italy. The food was so yummy! The waiters were singing and the garlic knots were to die... More

Food is delivered super fast so make sure you enjoy the free garlic bread balls before your food while you can. Portions are huge and delicious. I had several pasta dishes so far and they all tasted great. Service is relaxed but professional. Even though I do not live there, they remembered me which is always nice.

Staying nearby and went here on recommendation and on reading others reviews. It was very busy but the 5 of us were seated quite quickly and were immediately served the garlic balls so commonly referred to by other reviewers. Their comments are spot on these are highly addictive, do not order a starter. Our various dishes were all tasty and... More

We came as a family group after a graduating to this restaurant! Love the garlic knots they provide before dinner! We ordered several dinners in the larger portion and had them family style! 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
