This place doesn't improve. Many of the dishes come out as soggy slop. The employees can be aggressive and some who think they are being funny are just plain rude. How this place survives is not that much of a mystery - it's a beach...More

The whole family ordered pasta and we were really pleased, the portions were not big but they were good. Good location right by the beach.

The food was good - but we were not blown away. It's the type of easy Italian, that you could go to when you feel lazy to cook yourself. Staff service is good, they serve and refill you with garlic bread, so that's great if...More

Small'ish but very cozy. Good food, good staff and a very good atmosphere. We had our meal recommended by Sergio which we do not regret! Would definitively come again!

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

C&O Trattoria (C&O) has been open since 1969. Now a well known Venice Beach landmark, serving Northern Italian breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It has become known for good food and friendly service in a relaxed garden setting. On May 1, 1993, C & O Trattoria officially opened a Northern Italian concept, unlike any other in Los Angeles, serving gargantuan portions of high quality Northern Italian pastas at unbelievably low prices. Add our "Killer Garlic Rolls," nightly sing along, honor wine bar, and friendly team service and you have the C & O Trattoria, one of LA's premier Northern Italian eateries.
