I am so disappointed in C&O. We ordered to go for Valentine's Day and things were left out of the order, the food was cold (we live minutes away) and the steak was not even close to rare. The food was sub par and I...have been before and enjoyed it. Even the rolls, which I love, were hard and clearly made earlier. All of the food seems to have been prepared earlier and just heated up, or not, and sent out. Our night was ruined. Food in the trash.More

Went here for family wedding dinner--a challenge for any resto, esp smaller one like this--everything, food service and price all were very good, with any requests met easily and quickly and 30+ diners all quite happy. Highly recommend for family outing. Outdoor dining quite pretty...too.More

Italian spot with huge portions and a Rat Pack theme. Came here on a Thursday around 7:30pm and there were plenty of tables available. Limited street parking in the front as well as residential parking around the corner. There’s valet available too. Credit cards are...accepted. It’s a good spot for a date as well as a big group. They do have vegetarian options available. You have the option to make your plates “gargantuan” for an additional cost, and you could have your meals set for the week. The servers come around frequently with fresh garlic knots, which are insanely delicious. You could easily get full off of four or five of those things. I got the rosemary chicken ravioli, which was a huge portion and had a good amount of herbs in the sauce. They provide a small bowl of cheese on the side for you to distribute yourself.More

We recently visited this popular restaurant, famous for its garlic knots. I must say they didn't disappoint at all. They were so tasty, crispy and I love the fact they will give you a unlimited supply of these delightful treats. For mains we ordered pasta....I ordered the spaghetti carbonara which I have to admit was very average and blend. It wasn't fresh pasta and taste like package pasta. For dessert we had the Molton lava cake which was incredible. It was fluffy, warm and gooey. I'd happily go back there but try something else other than the carbonara.More

Picked up a late night snack via takeout. C & O Cucina was hopping... both their patio and in-house dining as well as takeout. Thank goodness for the dedicated parking lot and the awesome wait staff! The Killer Garlic Rolls were perfect! Perfect size... ok,...small enough to eat 5! Perfect amount of herbs and butter melted on top. The Dip and Roll appetizer included a Kalamata Olive Dip, C & O Marinara Sauce plus the Killer Garlic Rolls. Absolute perfection! The Caesar Salad with added Shrimp was fresh and tasty. The Fried Brussel Sprouts were hearty and a nice addition to our meal. The menu had so many delicious looking options that we will need to go back to try some of the pasta options.More

We came here for dinner for the first time. This place is really crowded on a Saturday night, so try to get here early. There is parking in the back. We self-parked in their lot because I think we were early but otherwise, there is...valet parking. Loved the garlic rolls. In fact, I would have been satisfied with just eating garlic rolls with some marinara sauce for dipping and a small salad. Nevertheless, I ordered the eggplant parm and it was very good.More

This restaurant never ceases to Amaze me. From the time they take your car to park it to the time you’re ready to leave you are treated like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. The good is so delicious usually take home something for Family or...friends. The bar is well stocked and we enjoyed many favorites and a reasonable price for seven couples. This is a must visit Restaurant.More

Our party of 5 came here for dinner and we had a blast! Our server was friendly, professional and made sure that we had a great time. The staff made sure you always had garlic knots/rolls, which are delicious when they are warm and soft....I ordered the Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo, which is now one of my favorite dishes. Nice and creamy with perfectly cooked chicken!More

Insolent and rude waiters. Maybe because it was 9 pm and the end of service. Same thing for cooking : overcooked pasta drowned in a a rather disgusting unknown sauce. Horrible

We were there with a large group, about 40 people, for a family celebration dinner. The "party" room was set up for us, and the service was excellent. We had appetizers, pastas, salad, and chicken - and all were quite good. It was a Friday...night, and the restaurant was hopping - all tables full with lots of people and good looking food! Ours was thoroughly enjoyed by all - so for really good Italian food in the Marina del Rey area, this restaurant is a very good choice. Valet parking ($7) is available - a good choice on some days as the parking in the area can be tough.More

Treated to a night out at C&O Cucina - home of the Killer Garlic Knots (definitely worth the hype). The garlic rolls keep coming throughout the meal. Portions are hearty and you definitely won't leave hungry. I ordered the Linguine and Clams. The other dishes...ordered at the table were Spaghetti Carbonara and Linguine La Mare. All were very good. Wait Staff were extremely attentive. A wonderful night.More

Go there with friends,, be prepared to eat! The garlic knots are flavorful and nonstop. The salads are fresh and plenty to share. Everything is served family style.. not gourmet by any means but good to get filled up with decent Italian food.

We have been to this restaurant many times with friends and family. The service is good, the food tasty and the evening sing along such a great way to top off a meal. They keep the garlic bread balls coming and the bottle of wine...on the table an be dangerous...especially at $7 a glass. The food is plentiful...large portions so be prepared to take some home. Lasagna is delicious as was the linquine with clams..lots of clams in this dish. The only real disappointment was the cannoli...the filling was okay but the shell was soggy...it is supposed to be crisp!More
