I love Italian food. I've read the reviews for this place and it was hit or miss. Since I went on a Tuesday night, and my dinner companion wanted to go there-I gave it a try. Upon entering, when I told the tuxedo clad host that my guest was on his way, he greeted me with an aloof, "where is... More

Went on a Sunday night at 7:30 and the bar and restaurant was packed. I would say at least 50% of the people in there were locals (celebs and industry). If you want a drink at the bar you will have to fight your way and order. The maitre d is a jovial guy who clearly has seen it all.... More

This place is the real authentic old hollywood ofyester year. You enter into a very dark,cramped small dining room that transports you back in time. The barcrowd is something that needs to be experienced as I'm at a loss for words to describe it. The steaks are terrific and served with a side ofpasta. I love the cesar salad or... More

The happiness factor for me at this iconic resto is the old school vintage atmosphere...red and white table cloths, rattan covered wine bottles hanging from the ceiling, booths, career waiters in proper waiter attire, etc. It's got a big red sauce, New York Italian vibe and if you order the steak you are taking part of it home unless you...

From the bad smell when we entered, to the huge and over priced entrees to the large portions of tasteless pasta. This place is amazingly overrated, it is extremely expensive, and I would not reccomend this to anyone. LA has so many cool places with great food. Do not spend your money here. We went to Dan Tana's to experience... More

Yes...you will see celebrities. Yes you will get great Italian Food...Yes the prices are a little high...Yes the service is rushed and above all step back in time to see where Sinatra- Clint Eastwood, George Clooney and the likes hang out for some great Serbian- Italian cooking. Mr. Tana is no longer there (famous Serbian Soccer player)... but the legacy... More

We were a party of 8 and they were most accommodating. It was very tight seating and lots of reaching over head but the service was great. So was the food.

Don't be expecting an "upscale" restaurant; rather, step back in time to an old fashion Italian restaurant with straw-wrapped Chianti bottles hanging around you. The menu is large and traditional, and everything has a very homemade taste. The Caesar salad is the best I've ever tasted. I found the wait staff courteous, although our waiter brought us a very cheap... More

I ate at Dan Tanas with my boyfriend on the first night of a much anticipated stay in L.A. last year. It came recommended by the hotel we were staying at (see: Petit Ermitage). Within walking distance of everything West Hollywood you need, from the outside this classic cottage fronting Santa Monica Boulevard doesn't look like much (the romantic side... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
