We were taken here by a friend, as a special treat, as we were visiting from the UK. The waiters were Very attentive and the service first class. Our main waiter, though a little serious, helped us with our food choices, recommending what he though would suit us. The food was very tasty and well presented. A throughly enjoyable evening...

Three of us dined here pre-theatre. We were immediately seated at a corner table. My spouse had the pork and I tried rabbit for the first time. It was amazing. Our cousin had a pasta dish which he loved as well. We shared an amazing brussel sprout salad with hazelnuts. Oh my. The sommelier, Rachel, suggested a great wine. Osteria... More

Visited for dinner after rave reviews from the hotel concierge. We walked in and were greeted by friendly staff and seated immediately at our table. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant was probably at 90 percent capacity. Welcome drinks were offered and brought to table quickly. Service was attentive and friendly. The menu was described in great detail;... More

We had a romantic dinner for 2 last night at Osteria Monza and for the most part it was a great experience. The design of the restaurant is not particularly remarkable or inviting - in fact it's a bit cold and noisy for a fine dining establishment but the food and service make up for it. Ask for the a...

Five of us dined here, at a cost of almost $800. A few dishes, such as the octopus salad and leg of lamb, we good, but not great. The porcini-rubbed ribeye was delicious, but criminally overpriced at $120. Barely enough steak for two people. Their much-lauded mozzarella bar was a joke. The cheese was dried out and tough, not fresh.... More

Take a look at the photos and this is what I would suggest ordering. Definitely the roasted carrots and a chopped salad to start From there you're on your own with multiple types of pizza and the crust is so flavorful.

Two of the pasta dishes we ordered were unavailable. One of them, one they are known for, only really requires flour and egg, I guess the chef just did not want to make it. How can that possibly happen in an expensive restaurant? We sat down at 7pm on a Sunday. The pasta course, albeit not being able to get... More

My friends and I had a midweek dinner here. The service was average (a less than helpful sommelier, a less than enthusiastic waitress) and the food was decent but not special. However, at over 400 dollar for a dinner for four, there's better ways to spend my money in LA.

An overview: food was mostly good (far from great), service was OK ( not commensurate with the standards expected of a pricey restaurant) and noise level was extremely high for a pleasant celebratory evening (which our party of 4 had hoped for). Presentation of the dishes was very poor since no attempt was made to decorate them or make them... More

Ate here not on purpose as we found about in on tripadvisor. Every expectation have been satisfied as the food was special and the atmosphere at this place is just amazing. Nothing to say about the service, great and detailed and wine choice of wine even by the glass. Very elaborated Italian food that most important do not loose its... More
