My daughter-in-law was toasted by her friends, family and professors here in the evening after she received her doctoral degree from UCLA. We all shared a delightful antipasto (misto I believe) preparation, and ordered individually from the scrumptious menu. Service staff were quite attentive and the ambience of the establishment lent to a delightful evening, indeed! Oh, a note about... More

This special restaurant has all that one could ask for: welcoming hosts, Angelo and Robert; excellent food and select wines; great service, and a warm atmosphere, wherey you can actually speak and be heard. We have been there for family dinners, celebrations, out-of town company, and intimate twosomes. No wonder the locals show such loyalty and appreciation!

I really love gnocchi and this restaurant's is the very best I have ever tasted. They are always light and fluffy, I don't know how they do it, consistently excellent!

Like a great club. Welcoming and professional service. Lots of specials plus great standbys. Outstanding Bolognese but everything is very good. Comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. I always enjoy it for lunch and want to come back which I do often. Highly recommended.

Booked this restaurant hoping to find some real Italian cuisine. The appetizer with grilled aubergine was average at best. The aubergines were not freshly grilled and that is what I would expect in a cheaper restaurant. The pasta was okish and since I ordered the special ravioli I did feel it was either reheated or that is just how it... More

The Italian cuisine at La Bruschetta is excellent, both the regular menu and the specials. Host Angelo is very welcoming and his son Robert is also very helpful and congenial. There is great food in a relaxed atmosphere which is NOT noisy, all too rare in Los Angeles these days.......

La Bruschetta is a long-established family-run Italian restaurant in Westwood. We went there mainly on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. Visually it is appealing in a traditional Italian way: brick walls lined with wine shelves, the lighting somewhat subdued but adequate. The noise level is perhaps a bit high at peak times; the only negative... More

La Bruschetta has deservedly earned a loyal West Los Angeles following and has long been one of the most authentic, yet relaxed Italian Restaurants in Los Angeles for over 30 years. The dining room is warm, lovely and brimming with an Italian mentality. It is perfect for a romantic night for two, for friends or for the whole family. The... More

Angelo is the consummate host! He welcomes you with a smile, sits at your table, tells you what the best things to order are and generally makes your experience memorable. The food is outstanding. I definitely recommend the vegetable soup... it is a family recipe and is delicious! Robert, the owners son waited on us and he is a pro.... More
