Excellent fresh Italian food

Datillo is an institution in uptown Whittier while other pop up restaurants come and go. I have been visiting Datillo for over 20 years. Their food is always fresh, bread is tasty. I typically get their grilled chicken and vegetables and load up on table bread. The atmosphere is that of an Italian... read more

This restaurant has gone downhill since our last visit. We ordered a bottle of red wine (difficult wine list, scattered, hard to read, not great choices), and then the waiter told us that they had no lamb, which was the dish wanted. So we ordered veal, and he told us they were out of veal. So we ended up with... More

Dattilo has been my choice for lunch meetings for the last 15 years. Great food and service, nice and quiet for talking, and the old fashioned Uptown Whittier neighborhood surprises most people, even those who grew up in So Cal. The Ravioli Contadina is one of my favorite restaurant dishes anywhere.

We held a reception here for 75+ people in August 2014 following my mother's memorial service at Rose Hills. From the very beginning when we went to check out the place out and test the food...our experience was just amazing! We were greeted immediately, introduced, and offered condolences for our loss, how nice they have the human touch that many... More

My husband and I have been coming here every Friday for 20+ years. We have had banquets, dinner with family and friends. Their family recipes and restaurant makes us feel as if it was our second home'

If you enjoy genuine taste and Italian authenticity then you will love Dattilo's. Scampi red, garlic bread from scratch, red wine, and amazing dessert you can't go wrong.
