    Not a Fan!

    Had a reservation tonight for a special occassion. When I got there, I was greeted and escorted to my table by a young girl who probably scored between a 650-700 on her SAT's. She had trouble performing simply human tasks like improvising, troubleshooting, speaking clearly and succintly. Then we get to the table and it was markedly the worst table in the place.

    Our go to restaurant for a nice night out, visitors, etc. Always fresh and we'll seasoned. Relaxed setting that manages to be stylish without overreaching.

    Authentic Italian Food

    Portions on the small side, but more than made up for buy the quality and authenticity of the ingredients. Lovely space in so so neighborhood. Service was attentive without being smothering. Only (mild) complaint was $20.00 corkage fee. $15. would be a much better fit. Antipasti were excellent. Especially the Arugula, prosciutto, and pickled raisins dish covered with a sunny side up egg. Pasta and amazing thin crust Pizza dishes were also of very high quality. A real find and well worth searching out. Two blocks from Paramount studios. Reasonably priced dishes.

    Excellent find in LA

    My family and I recently had our first visit to Osteria La Buca. We don't live especially nearby, but I am sure our visit will be the first of many. The food was incredible and authentic. (I have some basis for my opinion regarding the authenticity of the food, as I lived in Italy for nearly 12 years.) But more than excellent food, this restaurant offered us unparalleled warmth in its service and atmosphere. The servers were so kind, and so attentive. And the restaurant itself is one of the most beautiful I've encountered in LA.
