We first were introduced to Locanda Veneta in the late 80s. It was the place to take an agent/manager/ actor for lunch or dinner. But then if fell off the radar – only to recently return as a cozy hangout for a fabulous Italian dining experience. Decades ago it was tough to get a reservation – but now, while it’s still tight, it’s worth the effort to get over to Locanda Veneta. And the service almost exceeds the food – it’s a horse race! The staff is thoughtful, concerned and wanting to please, -- we felt like major award winners…in a town of ‘also ran’s….
Locanda Veneta has been such a treat each time, we just had to recommend this place to our friends and we all now continually return. Our various meals have included : Burrata Caprese (Creamy Fresh Mozzarella, Tomatoes and Basil – beautifully prepared and tasty); Calamari Alla Veneta (fantastic), Spaghetti Bolognese (it doesn’t get better); Ossobuco Con Risotto Zafferano (great for a cold night); Italian Amaretto Cheesecake (we wanted to reorder another round).
Locanda Veneta has become an over-the-top, magnificent dining pleasure -- one of the best Italian Restaurants in Los Angeles – It’s a run don’t walk! On the scale “A” to “F” – an “A” for the entire meal and service! Bravo!
