This place was soooo good! Wish we had not been rushed for dinner that night and could have enjoyed another bottle of wine and dessert. My husband had cioppino, he loved it! I had a chicken and herb ravioli in alfredo sauce - probably the best alfredo sauce I have had. Service was fantastic. The only negative, the lighting made... More

Have been going and taking out from CSBR for years. The food is just wonderful Italian served with love. Really enjoy the food. We have had some issues over the years with items missing from delivery so check carefully. Recently we ordered through a third party for delivery and the timing was really messed up. The owner of the restaurant... More

It was a tricky night for reservations. Lisa and Brian did a great job getting us seated, and all was going great. Dinner was amazing ... - Bread - Started with two kinds and both were amazing. - Salad - fabulous. The right amount of dressing - Roll (came with Salad) - fried dough ball with cheese in the middle... More

We drove in from Arizona with our RV and we're just dying for a great meal! This place hit the spot! With our waitresses recommendation (the ravioli is her great grandmothers recipe) I had the portobello ravioli with a sherry mushroom sauce and my husband had the seafood ravioli with lobster sauce. I only ate half of mine but could... More

This is a great place to walk to from the Inn at Playa Del Rey. A small restaurant serving very good, traditional Italian fare. Unfortunately, our waiter didn't seem to have the time to attend to us at all. At the end of the meal he even lost our credit card! But the food was great, and the restaurant packed,... More

I stopped in here with my parents during their California visit. My husband and I had driven by a few times and we were intrigued since we love Italian food. I met a woman from Playa Del Rey last week and she recommended Salerno, so I figured it was time to give it a try. Parking was a tiny bit... More

We found this place because I overshot my hotel and had to make a U turn at the next traffic light. At 5pm the lovely cooking odors coming from the place was mouth watering. We walked over later that evening and the joint was packed. It is a funky casual restaurants with loads and loads of character. The food was... More

We walked from our nearby inn and could clearly see the sign as we came down the hill. The ambiance is a bit dark, particularly as the sun is setting and they waited to turn on the lights. It does have an "old school" Italian restaurant vibe and has fun "old" touches. (However, I do want to clarify that, based... More
