Whether I'm eating healthy (like a Bossa's salad) or hearty (pasta or pizza), Bossa Nova has consistently good food and an interesting array of options. The fact that it's open late is also a big plus. Love this place!

Went there for dinner two days in a row. Food is so delicious and portions are really big, so you won't leave the restaurant with an empty stomach. We can highly recommend the bruschetta and the seafood from the grill! The interior design style is beautiful and the waiters are so friendly. Go there for dinner, they have something on... More

Lots of locals eat here, so we knew it must be good. Our appetizer was Coxhina and it was excellent. My daughter raved about her spicy pasta dish with shrimp and chicken. Although the service was slow, we would eat here again because of the large variety of menu choices.

Looks a nice friendly place but the reality , at least for us, was a little bit different. The food served wasn't bad , but it wasn't that great either, add that to a waiter who was clearly in a rush to get customers in and out in a rush and it doesn't bode well. They don't do reservations so... More

I thought it would be very nice after all the good reviews but got a little disappointed. We waited to get in about 45min which was OK, and the staff were very nice. We had to wait quite a while to get our orders in and it was confusing that the waiter was different person every time. Their vegetarian options... More

The food was good, but I was expecting more Brazilian food. Coming from Miami with so many Brazilian restaurants, even though the food was good, it was not my favorite.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
