Tanino Reviews List

Tanino

You will feel as if you've traveled back in time to Old Italy. Tanino Drago grew up in a small town in Sicily. His father made the family's wine, cheese and olive oil. His mother made the fresh pasta and bread. Tanino it seems was destined to master the art of fine Italian cuisine. He worked at his uncle's trattoria and studied at the Giarre Culinary School. It all comes together beautifully at Tanino's in Westwood. The Renaissance-style building was designed by Paul Williams and built in 1929.

"Tanino is a solid Italian restaurant very close to the UCLA campus, so quite convenient
when attending an event at UCLA. The food is reliably good and very popular with
the locals and faculty.

"The food is always good but not great, the chicken sausage special was barely edible it
was so salty, the shrimp in the checca could be grilled or something interesting before being
added to the checca. That being said....Tanino is one of the only restaurants in Los Angeles that has dependable good food and does not have a deafening noise level and that alone is enough to keep me coming back.

"We have often gone to Tanino with friends before a play at the Geffen. I am a long time fan of all of the Drago Brothers restaurants and frequent them. On this evening, the waiter was rude, tried to up sell much more expensive wine (without revealing the cost) when the selection our friend chose was apparently unavailable. My husband told the waiter he would have what I was having (and our friends heard him too) and when the food arrived, the choice of pasta was changed for my husband's order. When he told the waiter, the waiter was huffy and tried to say he had not ordered it that way. Eventually, a new order was brought out. The pasta bolognese which is generally excellent was just okay."

"My wife and I have been a regular patron of Tanino's for the last five years. Go there especially for the rock salt baked branzino. On 4/26 we went with another couple. Tanino was out of town. I ordered the branzino and was later told the chef would not make it. When I asked the server why he simply apologized and would speak with Tanino when he returned. I was served a complimentary spaghetti Bolognese which was not even edible. My wife's lamb chops were dry and over-cooked. The hostess removed the dishes from the bill and apologized about the actions of the chef. She asked for my telephone number and advised me that Tanino would call me. That call never occurred. Living in Westwood, my wife had always enjoyed our meals at this restaurant. Needless to say, we are never returning. Shame on you Tanino and your arrogant and rude chef."

"I never knew Tanino has a small back room that is just perfect for a small group. We were 7, but it could probably accommodate 10-12 comfortably. It was just great having that separate area. We were free to talk across the table without bothering others.
The varied menu accommodated all of our desires - from those who just wanted a few appetizers to those who wanted a starter and entree. The food was good and served in a timely manner so that we got out in time for the Geffen theater."

"I've been coming to Tanino's for lunches and dinners for years. The food is consistently excellent, all made using the freshest ingredients. For lunches they offer the option of a 2 course set menu, which my friends have often enjoyed. I prefer their salads which are light but filling; my favorite is a chopped artichoke salad, which I get with added grilled chicken. At dinner, they generally have several specials, and a great selection of pastas. Despite being in Westwood, I've never had a problem finding street parking (--they used to offer valet at lunch, but don't have that anymore). Given how excellent the food and service is, I don't know why this place is not busier. It is a great place to meet friends who live East of the 405, and others who just come up the 405."

"The food was excellent and it was not traditional Italian comfort food. The selections were unusual but very tasty. Our server was excellent and helped us select a wine because their wine list of Italian wines was the largest selection of Italian varietals I have ever seen.
The ambiance while nice, was not particularly comfortable for two people. The tables were very small."

"We had been going to many of the other Drago restaurants after not going to Tanino for many years. We went back and it was as good or better than ever. We were seated promptly and the service was outstanding. The menu is strong and the choices plus the specials are great. The pastas are still among the best in LA. It is such a pretty restaurant and you can speak in a normal voice and be heard across the table. We will be going back again soon."
