Familia! Rice Balls! Love for food! If you want to eat in a place where the owners love their customers and show it thru their food, then Little Dom's is the place for you.

I liked brunch here because there were salads and sandwiches and not just egg dishes and pancakes. The place is a classic and my daughter who lives in LA loves to bring us here when she visits.

This a place to start the day at. The atmosphere is great and also the service and the food. Stay and read the newspaper and enjoy good coffee and some good egg dish and you will have a nice start for your day.

First off, I would like to say that none of the photos posted do this little gem justice. The place is a delight. If you visiting LA you should try to go because it has a real "locals" feel to it. We ate here and then went up to the Griffith Park Observatory. How is that for a perfect evening?

If you do anything here... Order the rice balls!!! And then order some more!!! So tasty. Service was average when we got here, the staff made an issue of us changing our reservation from 4 to 5. It was 9:30 and the restaurant was half full at best. It's a small place but one more on a small group won't... More

Having a family heritage that is Italian and a master cook in my mom, I tend to be a bit critical of Italian food that isn't from home. Little Dom's offered some delicious, rustic dishes that were big on authentic flavors from Italy. This was especially true with their sauce on the eggplant parmesan, which could have used a bit...

On the corner of Hillhurst Avenue, one can find a small fascinating restaurant. This place serves wonderful dishes for light lunch like good warm sandwiches. We ate burger and meatballs sandwiches. They were just delicious. Service was good and clever, the waitress understands our limits and applied them to all dishes. A warm recommendation for a visitor in Griffith's park.

This restaurant looks like it has been there for years. Pictures of the old Hollywood stars on the walls and a diner decor. We ate brunch here and the food was delicious. Buckwheat polenta with spinach and an egg was so good. I would like to go again for dinner. Give this place a try it is worth it.

Going to a show at the Greek Theater, we headed in that direction early to grab a bite thinking that at 5:30, we would have the place to ourselves. NOT. It was packed with reservations so we sat at the bar and had a wonderful time as well as super food. They have Peroni on draft, always a good sign.... More

Pizza is oblong, very thin crust, crispy like a cracker, with little sauce and cheese. We added mushrooms and prosciutto. Couldn't chew the prosciutto! The service was slow, but everyone was very accomodating and nice. Would not go again. Guess we ordered the wrong thing!
