While vacationing in California, we looked online for a restaurant with outdoor seating (in Marina Del Rey area). We decided on C&O Trattoria as the seating area looked nice. It was right around the corner from Venice Beach and I vaguely remembered biking past it a few days before. We were immediately pleased with the atmosphere. It had heaters as well for the evening. I kept reading about the Garlic Balls online and was curious about them. They arrived soon after we did and the waitress told us the plate would keep being filled every 5-10 minutes. She was correct and we had to stop eating them as we knew (and we were told) we would spoil our appetite. They were delicious! Can't say enough about them. The waitress was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, made suggestions, and explained how dishes could be modified to our liking. The soup, pastas, and pizza were great. The service was as well. It was quite fast - almost too fast if you wanted to hang out for a while before dinner. If you are in the area, give it a try - even just to try the Garlic knots...rolls...balls... Whatever you call them, they are yummy good!
