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.

Every time I come to visit my son in Venice, I want to come here. The food is great, the service is excellent, the outdoor patio has nice ambiance, and it is overall a very great casual restaurant. The portions are huge and the tasty garlic knots arrive in abundance. Plus they periodically have everyone sing That's Amore, along with... More

A friend recommended C&O Trattoria when I was in town for business. Even before leaving for the restaurant she said, "beware the delicious garlic knots." Here's why: The wait-staff will start bring these tasty little butter and garlic bread balls (about an inch or two across) not long after you're seated... and they never stop bringing them. The knots are... More

It is a basic italian restaurant, with all typical plates one can expected. We ate at the heated patio, which is a nice area to eat outside. Service was nice, and the food was good (I had the eggplant lasagna). The crew was very nice, the food was served very fast and bill came right away when we ask.

Dad said...If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything. If you like big portions of faux Itaian food, there will be your hangout. Had lunch there recently - a friend brought me there and I could not even finish what was purportedly Italian food.

This is a must do on your itinerary if you're into fun, restaurant experiences with lots of atmosphere & tasty food. It's not a 5-star stuffy italian, so please don't come for that. This is beachy fun at it's best, and make sure you come in the evening (pre-9pm) to sing That's Amore. The garlic knots will ruin any diet... More

This place is one of our favorite restaurants in Marina Del Rey. We come here at least once a month, either for brunch, lunch and/or dinner. Our favorite dishes are spaghetti Bolognese and seafood pasta. The sauce is delicious, explosive of flavors in your mouth and the pasta is cooked to perfect. They also serve fresh garlic breads with your... More

While vacationing in California, we looked online for a restaurant with outdoor seating (in Marina Del Rey area). We decided on C&O Trattoria as the seating area looked nice. It was right around the corner from Venice Beach and I vaguely remembered biking past it a few days before. We were immediately pleased with the atmosphere. It had heaters as... More

The italian food is okay - but the best part is the having a glass of wine or beer and eating warm, buttery, salty delicious C&O's garlic knots until you burst!!!

I have been going to this restaurant for well over 20 years and the experiences have been consistently good. The "killer garlic rolls" are amazing with endless refills - just don't overdo it or else you won't be able to finish your main course. The calimari is a great way to start the meal and the pastas are delicious. The... More
