This is the perfect place to visit if you like good food and don't want to listen to anything your dining companions are saying. Very energetic young crowd, outrageously good food - particularly lamb chops, short ribs and pasta - good service, but the NOISE LEVEL - they had loud piped in music playing over live music. Really? It doesn't matter how good the food is, I can't stand saying "What? What? Say it again?" all night long. Won't be back.

This is a gem among the offerings on this block of West Hollywood. Pizza is awesome!!! Crust fantastic. We had a party of 6 and not one of us had a horrid tasting item, everything was great! The service is beyond reproach. Every single host/hostess; waiter/waitress, etc was incredibly accommodating.

Great food, fun atmosphere. The pizza is my favorite. It has very thin crust and the sauce is unbelievable.

Great experience at Aventine last month, food was amazing as were the staff.
It's a good crowd that hit this place, very chilled atmosphere that has you feeling relaxed at all times! Good chance you'll bump into someone famous as it's had a number of well known people visit from Paris Hilton to Lauren Conrad.
Good spot to go on a Friday night to eat and have a few pre drinks before you move onto a club, they have a DJ on Fridays.
I Hope this place does well, ENJOY!

We were staying in Hollywood and were looking for a nice restaurant for the last night of a great vacation in the States when we came across Aventine.

What a gem! A mouth-watering menu, great tasting food, reasonable prices - we even had a very sexy (male) waiter.

The ambience at the Aventine is second to none. We liked the decor, the cozy feeling of the room, and the waiters who had an eye on every finger.

We were a group of four and between us we tried:

Truffle popcorn (!!!) with parmesan and Italian parsley,
Ravioli stuffed with wild mushrooms,
Grilled lamb chops with a kumquat confit and potato chips in a balsamic mint reduction
- and many of the other tempting items from the menu.

Every one of us was highly satisfied.

If I lived in Hollywood this would be my favorite restaurant - somewhere to go when you can't be bothered to cook yourself, but also somewhere to take friends for a great night out.

This place is a winner.
