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

Went to this restaurant for dinner with friends. Food was fine, but waiters wouldn't leave me alone and asked me every 30 seconds, so we ordered. The food was OK, but slightly cold. Later, the Maitre'D came over and said that our table was already "reserved". And that ruined it all good experience completely.

My girlfriend and I came here for an old school Italian dinner while visiting LA. The host was fine. He warned us of dark steps so we didn't trip, thanked us for coming in, etc. however, the waiter we had did not make this a pleasant experience. He was not very friendly or welcoming. After ordering our bottle of wine,... More

My husband and I are trying to visit all the old LA-haunt restaurants before they're gone, and Dan Tana's was at the top of the list. We made a reservation (which you really must because the place is small) for our anniversary. We really enjoyed our visit -- the ambiance is wonderfully funky and cool -- but if you're expecting...

Had a lovely meal here. Best Caesar salad I have ever tasted! I had eggplant Parmesan and husband had the meatball, all were delicious. Staff were very attentive, Maitre D was very welcoming. Sat at the bar until our table was ready,barman gave us drinks on him. All on all a lovely experience in a very quaint Los Angeles restaurant.

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.
