After a long sightseeing tour by car in L.A. we arrived Westwood in the evening and by chance we found a parking lot right outside Tanino. We were lucky, because this is a very nice Italian restaurant. The prices are not adapted to student budgets but the food is excellent, as well as the service.

Tanino's is two tenths of a mile from the Geffen Playhouse, making it a convenient place to dine before a show. We easily made a reservation online and were seated promptly. Service is especially gracious at Tanino's--with one main waiter and several others who seem to work as a team to serve and clear various dishes. We shared a panzanella... More

We were at UCLA for medical appointments and this place was recommended for dinner by a "local." Fantastic dinner and the gimlets were excellent. Alex, our waiter was very informative and the food was superb. I had the lasagne and my husband had the seafood linguine. The ambiance was very romantic even for a couple of oldies like us. Quite...

Had lunch with a business associate in a near funereal atmosphere-I don't think they do a huge lunch business. We each had the salumeria special salad, a really good salami and garbanzo bean mix. I had penne arrabiatta and my companion had a Chilean sea bass special. Both were excellent. Service was prompt, friendly and professional.

Charged full entree prices for 1/2 /side order of pasta, three meals were all so-so, very possibly could have come out of a microwave. Chick parm portion huge but all items on the table, from salads to pasta and meat were no better than what u get at Olive Garden at double the price. Salad presentation visually was great but...

We recently ate at Tanino with another couple before a show at the Geffen Theatre. When I asked about a particular wine, the waiter told me he thought they were out, but he would check the cellar. He went back to his station, and did nothing. I hailed him about five minutes later, and he said "We're out." Then he... More

This is an excellent choice for a pre-Geffen Theatre dinner. The service was outstanding and managed the kitchen and table service with an eye toward the curtain time. The highlight was the branzino! It was prepared as a whole fish. We were given the option to have it filleted by the server of presented intact. It was delicious and for... More

We dine out in Westwood often, before basketball games and other events. There is valet parking, but we pre-park at UCLA and walk into the Village. Easy walk to Tanino. Good, but not extensive menu of Italian dishes. Good wine list. My DW had the ravioli which she thought was a tad spicy. Other of out group had the veal... More
