Boccaccio's first opened around 45 years ago, and I took a date there for dinner soon after. We loved it! I no longer live near Westlake Village, but I still try to eat there when I am in town. I think ownership has changed at least once during this time, but it does not matter: this restaurant has been great from its beginning. You can eat outdoors or indoors, and my wife and I have done both. This past weekend I had their delicious crab cake ($12) as an appetizer, followed by the sesame crusted ahi tuna ($23). My wife enjoyed escargot ($13) followed by the baby salmon picatta ($21.95). My mother made a main course out of the crab cake appetizer ($12) and the soup du jour---tomato ($6.50). For dessert I had their delicious cheesecake ($7) and my wife had baked alaska ($7) which was served flaming, of course. The wine list was reasonably extensive and there were plenty of wines which were offered in the $26-40 range. Of course, there were also plenty of high priced selections. Service was impeccable. Our waiter performed flawlessly. He was there when we needed him and stayed away when we did not need him (hovering servers who keep asking if everything is OK are a pet peeve of mine). Having been to this restaurant many times over the years, my impression was that prices were more reasonable than at some times in the past. In all these years, I have never had a bad experience. We'll definitely be back!
