ViaVeneto is from fare the THE best Italian restaurnt in LA.The waiters are amazing and just for the record,they speack Italian as they firt language that makes all the difference comparing to others Italian restaunts that they don´t have a clue about it.Costumers complains about the short space.Do they never went to Italy?Of course not.Italian people speaks fast and uses they hands to be understood,tipical Italy and that makes all the difference about this beatifufil EUROPE Contry.Stop complaing about the time food is severd eat some apetaizers,they are the best,drink some Moretis.If you want fast food go to Mac Donalds,as a matter of fact it is fast,cheap and no fun at all or even better,go to Italy and really enjoy the time,you´ll be surprise how wonderful it is not to be on a hurry.Relax and enjoy the best LA can give you about Italian food.Try not to be so serious about smal things.Life is to short to complain about good food.
There was no price on any main course menu. we order white fish and smell old,not flash plus no flavor at all.
what surprise was that this restaurant charged very tiny bottle of about $85 each and we had three bottle, guest how much Sunday dinner cost $308.00 for two person .
Plus this place so small table bearly able to put two disc on table.
definitely not worth paying or go back paying over $300 for two person.
I went here because I live in the neighborhood and Via Veneto always seems busy, at least on the weekends. While decor (here cold and impersonal) and service (good but not great) are nice to have, at these prices good food is essential. I had a pasta entree which was somewhat bland and little overcooked - a far cry from what you would get at a decent Italian restaurant in New York, much less Italy. Wine selection had the usual suspects. Overall, it would be par for course at half the price. Much better and more authentic Italian food can be had a 5 Dudley a few blocks away.
NASTY FOOD - Cold food when it needed to be warm. Overheated on microwave for sure once warmed. My friend and I just had to warn people about this rip-off of a place and took the time to write this. The insolent service on top of the bad food makes for an overall totally nasty experience.
NEVER AGAIN! Terrible service and canned tasting Italian food.
Unfortunately, I have eaten at the best restaurants in the world to and was just visiting LA, craving Italian food yet again. Friends recommended this place. Unfortunately I had eaten at Il Mulino in NYC too recently to be able to enjoy this pretentious yet poor nightmare of a place. THE FOOD IS TERRIBLE, BUT THE SERVICE IS WORST.
great food, but i tried to order a glass of wine and every glass i chose which was around $12-15 a glass, the waiter said they were out of and instead offering me a 1/2 bottle for $100. after a few uncomfortable min. of me trying to pick a glass of wine and the waiter trying to point out what they had i chose a $39 1/2 bottle. sure enough when i got the bill he had charged me $50 for my bottle of wine. When i brought it to his attention he claimed that he told me when he brought it to the table it was the special reserve. very strange the whole experience with not only the waiter but the manager as well who told me to take the price difference of the wine out of the waiters tip because we had different stories.
This was the worst experience I've ever had dining. Well, not dining really. We went on Friday night with 8:00 reservations, waited until 8:30 without even being spoken to, and then when we were asked to wait outside in the cold, we decided to leave. The owner himself used expliatives and told us never to come back. It was absolutely horrible. I've been in the restaurant industry and customer service industry for 10 years. The worst service I've ever ever ever had anywhere. I would go to Olive Garden for Italian before ever even stepping foot in their restaurant again.
I ate at lot of places(da silvano, babbo, vetri ,scalini fideli etc.), but this was the best italian meal , comparable to restaurants in Italy.
White truffle pasta,sea hurcin pasta , rib eye and panna cotta some of my favourite.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but I must say that it has really slipped. I went there recently and ordered the SAME dishes I used to love. It is just not as good as it used to be. Perhaps they are spending too much time trying to make their new restaurant across the street a success?
