Returned to Bistango one year after our first time as it was halfway for friends in Oceanside and us out in the San Fernando Valley. It is in a industrial type area below a large office building. A great Trio played almost continually with what appeared to be a 15 mins. break over the 2.5 hrs. we were there. An... More

Nice, sexy atmosphere, good variety of food! Better than I expected, due to its location. Not there for the view, but the atmosphere and the food!

I have been to this restaurant countless times. It is always good and their standard dishes are delicious. The restaurant has a unique setting and with the art work always changing there is something unique for each visit. One of the best things about the restaurant is the bar area. Ask for Steve who will always treat your right. They... More
