Tried to cancel the reservation online but the site would not let me. I have eaten here many time and loved both the food and vibe.

Food is delicious as always. Killer garlic rolls were in abundance and the patio was pleasant.

This place remembers that customers come first. The food is good solid Italiano but the service from host to bar to wait staff is fabulous and not often encountered here in LA. Perfect place to begin or end a walking tour of the Venice canals around the holidays.

I literally have moments when I crave C&O's ! The food is always delicious and the portions are huge ! The best thing ever are the unlimited garlic knots !

It's been a long time since I ate at this location, I usually prefer the one closer to Lincoln Blvd because of the parking situation. Food was awesome. Service was great. Very pleased.

I has been here 11 years ago, and remembered how great my experience had been. This time was even better than I remembered! It couldn't have been better ... The night was absolutely perfect!

Not much to complain about... It's a great place all around. Just wish service wasn't soooo efficient. Would like to freely linger longer! Otherwise wonderful. Will frequent often.

Great service -- and the food is great! We had a broad variety of food ordered in our group and everyone was pleased. The ambiance was really nice for an evening meal with business guests.

Great food, BOUNTIFUL portions, friendly staff. Love eating on the outdoor piazza. Feels like you're in Italy. And OH THOSE GARLIC ROLLS; they keep refilling them food you!

Then around 8P, the singalong starts. The whole restaurant is filled with the sound of Dean Martin singing, "Amore." The entire staff begins singing and toasting the customers. What fun!

From food, to portions, to ambience to fun, the C&O hits a home run; especially for a special occasion or entertaining out of town guests. I had my 50th birthday party on the piazza with about 75 guests back in 2002 and it's as good now as it was back then!

Do go there for ambiance/atmosphere. The food is well done and the garlic knots are can't eat just one

As soon as my party showed up, we instantly received a negative attitude from the host and were told to go to the other hostess on the patio side of the restaurant. We went to the patio and asked if we could sit inside so she walked us over to the host so that we were able to get a table. The host somewhat apologized but then stared us down the whole evening which made it a bit uncomfortable. The food was good but when we were ready to pay the bill, the waitress told us that she couldn't split up the bill and that we needed to do the math before she can process the payments. It's been years since we've been here and I don't recall ever having any issues. We don't think we'll be back.

The food is always great, and the complimentary garlic rolls are addictive. The generously sized portions mean you will likely take a "to go" container. If you're feeling generous when you leave, take note that a common occurrence in the Venice Beach area is to leave your "to go" food with the less fortunate who are a short walk away. Go to C & O's!

Food was great! However, it seems like portions have become smaller. We got the Pappardelle Pasta with Boneless Beef Short Ribs. Also, garlic knots didn't come around as often as I remember. The garlic knots are the reason to go to C&O! I will try again, I'm hoping the experience will be better.
