We stopped by here for dinner on a Monday night. We had a great waiter and the food was very good. It has both indoor and outdoor seating - so with the mild weather - outside was a natural. They also had a little sing-along with everyone there - which was unexpected - but fun. I'd certainly recommend this place... More

While we were waiting to ask for a table, a waiter came by and offered us their warm garlic knots. They were fantastic. Once seated the garlic knots kept coming. We had an outdoor table along the busy sidewalk of people heading to the Venice Pier. It was nice to sit there and people watch. Our meals were lasagna &... More

We ate at the place close to the beach. The greeter forgot about us so I had to go back to get a menu. However they redeemed themselves with the service afterwards. Great garlic knots, wonderful penne with arrabiatta sauce and good calamari. I recommend.

I used to come to C&O sixteen years ago as a student, attracted by the atmosphere and generous serves of food (I usually took home my remaining meal for lunch the next day). So it was a real pleasure to revisit 16 years later and find the same fantastic vibe in the restaurant and great food, though with some more... More

Outstanding garlic rolls and honor system 1.5 liter bottles of wine come with each table. Staff is friendly and helpful. I had the Gnocchi Bolognese, gnocchi was more flour than potato, the bolognese was very meaty. Spouse had a special dish of seafood in an arrabiata sauce. Wait staff recommended adding garlic to the dish. Will be back.

When our daughter attended college near here, all her friends commandeered our car for a trip to C&O. This time it was just our daughter, the newly minted attorney and us for a return visit. The garlic knots are a must-have. Just watch yourself. They are so good, you might have a tendency to fill up on them. A jug... More

My wife and I ate here last night while staying at The Kinney, just 4 minutes walk down the street. I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor and seen the queues outside the sister restaurant (C&O Trattoria, down by Venice Beach) at lunchtime, so I knew they must offer something good. THe downstairs area was packed full, so the waitress... More

Great place to eat. The food was outstanding, the service great, and staff very outgoing. They do a sing along at night that is so much fun. The garlic rolls are to die for and they keep them coming. I would definitely eat here again.

C&O Trattoria (C&O) has been open since 1969. Now a well known Venice Beach landmark, serving Northern Italian breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It has become known for good food and friendly service in a relaxed garden setting. On May 1, 1993, C & O Trattoria officially opened a Northern Italian concept, unlike any other in Los Angeles, serving gargantuan portions of high quality Northern Italian pastas at unbelievably low prices. Add our "Killer Garlic Rolls," nightly sing along, honor wine bar, and friendly team service and you have the C & O Trattoria, one of LA's premier Northern Italian eateries.
