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.

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.

Marna and I moved form L.A. to San Jose, CA last summer. This was our first trip back to L.A. since moving. C and O has always been one of our favorites so we chose it as a place to eat and meet with our grown children and our "grand dog" ( dogs are allowed only on the outside sidewalk... More

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

We went for dinner on a Tuesday night. Gentle buzzy atmosphere. Table and drinks came very quickly. Took the waiters recommendation on food and he hit the nail on the head. Great main courses. Huge portions. Do not eat too many of the uber delicious dough balls the appear on the table!

Just got back from visiting my daughter who lives in Venice and I am still smiling about our night out at C & O Trattoria. The garlic knots are to die for.

This place is just plain fun! The food is very good, of course, especially the complementary garlic rolls, which are buttery and amazing. The "That's Amore" singing and glass clinking is irresistibly fun. It puts the entire place in a really happy mood. It happens around 8:00PM, so time your visit around that.
