We visited as part of a family party of about 50 people. There was a preset menu, and everything was absolutely great! Really good garlic rolls, pasta & bow ties, grilled chicken breasts, and great appetizers rounded out the service. Th meal was ended with a coffee service that was better than usual for a restaurant - hot and fresh!... More

Good hearty lunch with a variety of beers. Good service promptly provided by a friendly staff. While the restaurant was crowded, the noise levels were more than tolerable, an unusual but positive fact.

We went with another couple for a simple mid week dinner. The guys shared a "gargantuan" pasta, and there was enough to take home for another dinner. I had the white fish which was delidious--and my friend enjoyed the shrimp. We all enjoyed the famous garlic rolls which kept coming until we said--enough!

The C & O Cuchina should not be confused with the "sister restaurant" the C & O Trattoria which is a couple blocks off the beach in Venice. This restaurant is less than a block from Lincoln Blvd. We've known about "the Cucina" since it opened, but always ended up at "the Trattoria". It's a looooong trip from the Great... More

This place is really fun. They can be slow but the wait staff does their best to keep things moving, they are very friendly. The food is good basic, no frills Italian. It would not be in business in New Jersey, but for a spot at the beach, it make a fun evening. There can be a very long wait... More

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
