first time at this place after reading the reviews and running past the place. it was fantastic. nd friendly.
My review "I will return" 1/2011 updated.
I and my friends have been many times now and my belief in the adage "First impressions are the best Impressions" has proved beyond a doubt to be true. My criteria of Freshness, Cleanliness & Presentation all pass with top marks. Quality of our meal, top of the list. Steaks, chicken, fish, pastas all are so tasty, excellent. Also for the very pleasant ambiance enhance by our waiter whom we seem to get most times, Mr Nacho. He is, as all are there, remarkably knowledgeable, from the way the meal is cooked to the ingredients and for his choice of wines. All staff are very attentive. The Executive Chef is the owner and a very pleasant fellow to, if you want something not on the menu do not be afraid to ask. I have been to many other places for a Steak, even Hortons at three times the price and wished I had gone here instead. This is without a doubt my favorite Italian Restaurant in Los Angeles.
Phone before hand & book a table as the busy time's you will have a long wait.
Don’t judge the place from out side. Its like “don’t judge a book by the cover”. Go in, you will like it.
I will return. – On the recommendation of friends we have been there twice now and believing in the adage, 1st impressions are the best. We like this place. For the freshness and quality of our meal, top of the list. Our 2 different steaks, excellent. For the very pleasant ambiance which was enhance by our waiter on both occasions. Our waiter was remarkably knowledgeable, from the way it was cooked to the ingredients. For his choice of wine. All there are very attentive. Next time I go will add our waiters name to this. Cons. Just don’t judge the place from out side. Its like “don’t judge a book by the cover”. Go in, you will like it.
Silver Lake Italian – Aroma ... the exterior is no reflection of the delightful inside. A small well done casual place with a tough of class. The food is Italian home cooking like you haven't tasted. Every dish is just a flavorful experience and love is infused in each plate. Probably some of the best gnocchi ever and a solid selection of wine.
The specials were incredible and all four of us were raving about the evening!
Scrumptious Italian in Silverlake! – Been going to Aroma for a few years now and had to finally sit down and write a well deserved review.
We go there when we are celebrating and get all dressed up AND we go there when we just want to have a delicious dinner out. Once your inside the mimi-mall fades away quickly.
There menu is big (so you can get a good classical Italian dish any time) and they always have a bunch of specials to add to your choices. These are usually so melt in your mouth delish! I've never had room for dessert so I have no idea how that is, but I can tell you all the apps and mains are terrific.
Also the staff is friendly, attentive (with an understanding of timing and when to approach the table) and it's obvious that they love the food too... they are no fools. Do yourself a favor and GO to this delicious gourmet Italian restaurant.
good food, but won't return – Food was good, but the brusk, cranky waitresses i can do without. I had a bill of $21.00 and left $40 in the folder and was asked if needed change when i clearly left the folder open and the waitress was visually upset cause she wanted the whole thing. Is she nuts. change was returned but i won't. skip this joint. looks nice from the outside but the true worth is how they treat you.
Enjoyable dinner! – My husband and I just returned from our first dinner at Aroma. Wonderful! The restaurant has a cozy dining room, and an excellent and friendly staff. We called ahead to book a table, which helped us avoid a 45 minute wait. Ask for a table in the dining room as opposed to a table next to the kitchen. Wide variety of specials, and the food was really good and flavorful. The restaurant is in a strip mall on Sunset, but don't let that influence you. Aroma is definitely worth trying!
the best ! – coming from boston i know good food & service thay have it ! a must go place ! get thare early it fills up fast and no area for wating !
Best Italian food in LA! – I have to start this by saying that I have never reviewed a restaurant. This restaurant is so amazingly good that I had to say something about it. If you are looking for quality Italian food this is the place to try. You will never believe that a restaurant in such a random strip mall can be this good but it is. As everyone has said the specials are the way to go and definitely try the flan!
