Went for dinner to this neighbourhood restaurant in West Hollywood with my wife and 2 kids. Extensive menu and better than average food marred by poor service.

Fantastic pasta, trendy atmosphere. Love the food every time and the service is always great. The prices are a little higher, but worth the quality of the food. This is now a favorite, and that says a lot for the abundance of food in Hollywood.

It's Brazilian, but we can't stop ordering the pasta and pizza because it's sooo good. No reservations and outside seating available

Went here last night and did not book ahead. Reassuringly had to wait twenty minutes for a table midweek so busy and popular place. Mix of tourists and locals. Massive menu so focuses on the specialities and the highlighted popular dishes. Not disappointed with the food or service. Great selection of beers and wines also. Portions are large so sharing...

Amazing food and service, in price mid range. We just loved everything we ordered, we definitely will go back during our stay! This a place worth to visit, especially because it is close to Beverly Hills and WeHo, Walk of Fame.

Rafael's pasta has been my favourite meal of all time for over a decade. I wish I lived closer to LA for Bossa Nova only! The cheese bread is also amazing. I will fly back to LA just to go back again.

My boyfriend and I went there in a Saturday night without reservation and it took only 5 min to get a table. The waiter was extremely friendly and efficient.

We went for dinner one night while our visit in LA. Staff are very friendly, but the food is nothing special. Typical Italian style with a twist of the house. Good food in general!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, Dani. We are disappointed to hear that you were not wowed with our food. We have a very extensive menu - not only pastas.

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.
