While the atmosphere is Nice and the service is excellent, the food leaves much to be desired. While the portions are gigantic most of it borders on inedible. The calamari is over done and gooped up in a horrible batter. The short rib that they raved about on the menu certainly was not falling off the bone, it was incredibly... More

Not much to look at but looks can be deceiving. Beach side, not fancy, noisey, busy, crummy wine selection, but, lots of fun and really great pasta! Service is excellent and the constantly appearing garlic bread is to die for! Casual but you will like it. Go now!

A large menu selection. We struggled making a final decision. The staff continues to fill up the bread bowl with amazing tasting rolls. Be careful or you wont have room left for the main entrée. Portions sizes were large so we didn't have room for dessert. We saw the dessert tray and it looked amazing.

I came here with a large group from work, twice; we were served sides, salads and 3 delicious pasta dishes to share. They then offer individual desserts, which all look and taste incredible. The quality is outstanding and the food feels extremely authentic and this comes along with impeccable and friendly service. We came on Thursdays and if you're lucky... More

I'm in Venice a few times a year for business. Familiar with a few restaurants out there. Heard of this new spot, came highly recommended. Lived up to the hype. Great Italian restaurant, another gem in Venice.

This is a very happening spot and the location is fabulously close to Venice Beach, which is a must see. Anything goes at Venice Beach! This was my dad's favorite spot and he probably held the record for most rolls consumed. The service is always good. The food is delicious with large portions. The prices are very fair.

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.
