Disappointed – I had dinner at Ca' Brea last night after some months. The service was good, but the food was extremely disappointing. The Carpaccio appetizer for example contained hardly any meat, and this minimal quantity was of bad quality with an unpleasant taste. The shaved parmesan was not "parmiggiano grana" but cheap un-aged parmesan. The only good thing on the plate was an abundance of fresh arugala salad, but this was not worth the $16 price tag.

Best pizza anywhere – Go at Ca'Brea restaurant for an excellent taste of Italian dish. The pizza is really good and I highly recommend it.

This La Brea mainstay keeps its rep for a broad array of Italian dishes and a genial atmosphere. – In Short
Even after a remodel in the wake of a 2006 fire, the variety of rooms here, including a mezzanine, main dining room, bar area, and an enclosed patio, create a sprawling, spacious charm. It's as if one has been invited to dinner in a country villa, adorned with colorful artwork, dark wood fixtures and warm caramel walls. The menu features Italian standbys like linguini with clams, and grilled veal chop with mushroom sauce, with the occasional surprise, like a "caprese" with smoked salmon and vegetables instead of tomatoes and mozzarella.

My Top 3 Fish Dishes EVER - ( see my reviews for 2 others ) – We've been coming here for years, before they remodeled. I even had my b-day banquet here once...they NEVER disappoint! My favorite fish dish at Ca Brea is a special which they have every so often - it's a white fish baked in parchment paper, with tomato-caper sauce (another fave). This dish is divine! When they don't have it, I go for the addictive pumpkin ravioli in decadent creamy walnut sauce - comfort food at it's best! Oh, and the "crema di vaniglia" dessert is one of the best sweets I've ever had - the 1st time I tried it, I was willing to fall at the chef's feet in humble praise!

Location is good but food is so so... – I had dinner at Ca Brea on Friday. I heard very good reviews on this restaurant but is wasnt good as I expected.... My friends pasta was dry and hard(undercooked). I had chicken and it was very salty.

It's close to L.A and location is good but food was not so great..

Horrible service but good food – The food was pretty good. I prefer Guido's in West LA but no complaints over the food at Ca' Brea. The service is another issue. I had an 8 p.m. reservation. I was seated at 9:30 p.m. When I arrived, the hostess politely explained that they were short staffed and had too many reservations. She said it would be a 20 minute wait. That turned into 90 minutes. That's unacceptable. Period. My party was compted one free drink at the bar. So at least they tried to make ammends. There was also no parking at the valet, so i had to find a meter 2 blocks away. When we were finally seated, the hostess approached my party and suggested that next time we dine at 6pm or 6:30pm when they're not busy, that way they can honor the reservtation. The food was good, but not worth the long wait and the disrespect of the restaurant's inability to honor the reservation. Go to Mozza, Guido's, or frankly even Maggiano's before going to this place.

Pleasant Staff, Decent Price, Easy Parking, – Went to dinner on a Thursday night, I called ahead and was told not to worry about reservations (about 7:30pm). We were greeted immediately and warmly, and seated immediately. There is a nice bar that you could sit at if you had to wait. The waitstaff was attentive and quite pleasant, but the food was a little on the slow side arriving to our table. I think it was more the kitchen vice the waitstaff though. We had the proscuitto wrapped goat cheese as an app, and it was quite tasty. The gnocchi was not that good. The sauce was tasty, but the gnocchi I thought was too flour-y and not enough potato-y. The osso bucco was tasty, although I think the polenta should fritters should be larger or just serve it over a polenta mountain. Desert was a creme brulee type thing that was really good. Appetizer, 2 entrees, bottle of red, dessert, cappuccino and esspresso ran $105. Overall, the experience was great because of the ease of getting in, lack of any attitude in the staff, on the whole the food was good, and it was easy to park ($5 valet). Reccommended.

Risotto-Salty as the Dead Sea – I've been here a few times and usually their food and service are great, but this past time was completely different. We took the family for lunch and every single dish was so salty, especially the risotto. We tried to enjoy it, especially since it's not a cheap place, but I guess the cook was feeling a little salt shaker-happy. Hopefully this was an isolated experience.

Great Italian food and bread! – I discovered this place by accident and it turned out to be GREAT! The bread is so good, that they ship it to other restaurants around the area. I love the gnocchi here. The location is central to everything in LA, so it's easy to get there. The service is always really good, from the valet to the wait staff.

Awesome Party Space – I organized a last minute graduation party at Ca Brea and we could not have had a better experience. They were very helpful in working with our large party without having to commit to a prix-fixe menu - a perfect situation for our group of whom several had dietary restrictions. All in all it was a great experience. The wine list was fantastic, the ravioli was incredible, and everybody raved about the tiramisu. I definitely recommend Ca Brea to anyone who appreciates good Northern Italian food.
