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.

The garlic knots are so delicious! They bring them warm to your table throughout the meal, all you can eat. Went here with a group of friends. The food is really good, and not too expensive. Expect casual and easy food. This isn't anything gourmet or mind blowing, but just good and filling. The serving size is pretty big, so... More

Great Italian food, garlic bread rolls to die for-not a bad item on the menu. This place is steps to the beach and is hopping all night. The open air atmosphere is great! Love it!!

So...read great reviews on yelp, and decided to give it a shot. It's not ny Italian food. It's not even as good as basic Italian restauarants. Yes, the garlic knits are great. But....that was the highlight. Cesar salad was honestly a dissapointment. No real crisp fresh flavor and the dressing tasted like it was bottle, not fresh. I had the... More

I recently dined here with some business associates. It is an informal atmosphere, so dress down. Given the location right off of Venice Beach, my expectations were not that high. Boy, was I surprised. Great place. Excellent food. Wait staff was young but eager to please. Shrimp ravioli appetizers were popular at our table. I had a veal dish which... More

I've eaten at this restaurant quite a few times before, but that was in the early 2000's. I've visited this place again in March 2015 not knowing what to expect after all this time. To my amazement, almost nothing has changed. I know that this might be a negative for some, but to me, keeping the same excellent level of... More

I dislike nothing about C&O! All good here, impeccable service, self-serve Chianti, killer linguine pescatore. The rolls alone will keep you coming back! Yum, yum!!

Great fun especially the courtyard patio outside full of diners obviously enjoying the food and atmosphere. The singing of That's Amore by everyone every hour is quite and almost everyone joins in. We were on a Monday evening and bottles of wine were half price! Our food was well prepared and the waiter was friendly and funny. A very fond... More

If you fancy pretty decent Italian food at a good price, try C&O Trattoria, on Washington Blvd, a block or two in from the Venice pier. Eat on their outdoor patio. Enjoy their sinfully delish garlic knots. There's another location, further down the road, but this is the one we've always taken the college kids to because we like the... More
