Delicious cheese, excellent red wine, okay pasta, and a cozy atmosphere. A Saturday night dinner at this place in Silver Lake was great. The food was decent but they really should think twice about the amount of garlic in the pasta vongole, yikes! Would go there again for an easy night out. Nota bene they don't serve liquor so If...

After waiting 15-20 minutes for a reserved table and reading mixed reviews of this place, I was a little bit skeptical, but our waiter and the food dismissed all of my concerns! I am all about hearty portions and classic Italian dishes, which I was surprised to get when the dishes arrived! Every thing we ordered was delicious and good... More

Speranza feels like LA meets Brooklyn - hipster vibe, cool enclosed garden space, mostly a young crowd. The Italian menu was decent, pretty typical; I wish there had been more choices. Food was good, not exceptional. My lasagna was served in a small bowl. While serving size was fine, baked this way it had turned into a gummy conglomeration -... More

Pros - They actually serve the rare Roman delicacy puntarelle (cicoria di catalogna) when in season (not on the menu, one must ask for it). - Consistently gracious and kind staff. The owners even come around to the tables making affable and good-natured conversation with guests well above and beyond inquiring after taste of food and well-being. - Lamb chops... More

Real nice, authentic Italian, Carpaccio, Ossobucco and Tiramisu... friendly staff, will certainly go there again. Won't get much closer to Italy this far West... if they only had Ramazzotti... :-)

Visited for an impromptu dinner. Excellent pasta! Excellent wine selection! Excellent service! Recommend for anyone seeking relaxed, esoteric Italian cuisine. This is far, far from Olive Garden.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to review Speranza. It's is a very small Silverlake neighborhood Italian restaurant that may be hard to find because it's camouflaged so well. Make no mistake, it's well worth the effort. There is metered parking in front. The pasta is home made and simply delicious. I especially love the lasagne and every... More

We went along with our family who live nearby, but first-timers might find it difficult to locate this unobtrusive Silver Lake eatery. However it's worth making the effort, especially on a warm LA evening, when this casual, family-friendly place is an excellent choice. The homemade pastas, perfectly al dente and with genuine, flavoursome sauces, are hard to beat. We chose... More

You will miss this place if you aren't looking carefully. We never did find a sign that told the name of the restaurant or the address. However, if you see orange, plastic curtains blocking the outdoor dining area from the view of the busy street, you are there! This is a busy place with a variety of dining groups from... More
