Sales rep parking away from Cedars and ran across this little place. Neat indoor outdoor vibe. Clean and well set up. Not sure how service could get too bad since it's a fairly simple ordering process and they don't bring you the food? I'm guessing if you came at a very popular time the only device issue you would have... More

Got three empanadas and drink combo. Was about $11. Service was a little wonky, and they were out of a few things. Flavors weren't bad, but dough was dry and flavorless. Overall, it was not terrible, but have had much better elsewhere. Would not recommend.

Typical Argentian empanadas and sweets. Friendly service and environment. Good food and quality for a quick lunch.

The taste of the Empanadas, to me, is good. I had the mushroom which was cheesy and warm. However, I ordered delivery at work and also ordered a salad. Unfortunately, the salad failed to arrive. Tried to call them, but no one answered even though they were open. Called multiple times. poor customer service

I had surgery at Cedars-Sinai recently and my daughter brought me some various empanadas, sweet and savory from Nonna's on 3rd St. near Beverly Hills. I had their Filipino Chicken empanada and their Shrimp Empanada. These are both my favorite savory empanadas so far and both are KILLER with the Chimchurri sauce - a must have with them otherwise, they... More

The Empanada's were amazing, wish they were larger but definitely a tasty treat. I had the chicken and the beef. They even sell a Philly Cheese steak flavored one but i didn't taste it. I am quite sure that was amazing as well. I will come back every time I am in LA. They taste the best when they are... More

Totally loved this empanada joint - perfect for a relaxed light lunch! The venue, although simple and casual, was clean and well-designed (in particular the outdoor counter looking into the street). I really liked the various pre-designed combo formulas which made it super easy to order - and the combo quantities were just right. The empanadas tasted delicious and authentic... More

I decided to stop by for an early lunch after an appointment at Cedars. I'd heard great things about this place, and was happy to see no line since I was there early, before the lunch crowd. There's a huge selection of Empanadas here -- chicken, pork, beef, veggie, and even dessert options. I decided to try 3 different flavors,... More

DELICIOUS. I'm not vegetarian (by any means), but I could easily be vegetarian if I could eat Nonna's empanadas every day. The best lunch for under $10! The spinach and cheese was so creamy and the empanadas aren't too heavy. The sweet corn was my absolute favorite, especially with their house chimichurri sauce. The green goddess dressing on the salad... More
