  • EaterNewish chef Cameron Slaugh is now at the helm of Osteria La Buca after stints at Alinea and Eleven Madison Park, but the heart of the place will always be the rustic, hearty pastas.

  • Lindsey W.Get the calzone, it's full of flavor and not overly cheesy, and the Nero pasta. Sit at the bar or family table without a reservation!

    55555 by Lindsey W.


  • Abby G.the perfect date night - pasta, pizza, and a bottle of wine

    55555 by Abby G.

  • John PAnother over rated, old fashioned Italian restaurant - L.A. is full of these places now - the owners aren't even Italian, I think they're Argentinian... doesn't count.

  • Thomas C.Foursquare asks, "What's good here?" How about pretty much everything? The Brussels Sprout appetizer is big enough for an entree and the short rib ravioli is the perfect mixture of rich and savory

    55555 by Thomas C.

  • Tina S.Mama is no longer there but it's a good place.

    55555 by Tina S.


  • Crystal R.The gluten-free pasta comes in one variety: a handmade penne. It works well with the carbonara, bolognese and lamb rigatoni. If you can handle gluten, get the legendary tiramisu for dessert.

    55555 by Crystal R.


  • Kate GreenSit at the bar with Travis, you won't regret it!

    55555 by Kate Green

  • Vanity Fair AgendaBased on our experience, you can’t go wrong with the menu, but the specialty pizza, Brussels sprouts, and buratta were a total home run.

    55555 by Vanity Fair Agenda


  • Thomas N.Short rib ravioli is the truth...

    55555 by Thomas N.


  • Kelly B.Solid Neapolitan-style pizza! The bold sauce on the "Classic" is an understated genius.

    55555 by Kelly B.


  • D. CaseyEverything here was delish. I loved the pizza. Dough chewy and crisp to perfection. Comforting fragrant bowls of pasta too.

    55555 by D. Casey

    55555 by Jeffrey R.


  • Drew F.One pot supper!

    33333 by Drew F.


  • jennifer h.the menu changes a lot but if you see the corn agnolotti available, order it. perfectly portioned and all sorts of wonderful. the baked-to-order bread is also ridiculous.

    55555 by jennifer h.


  • Serious EatsThis Italian osteria defies expectations to deliver a full-flavored, Italian-inspired burger topped with Taleggio, roasted tomato, aioli, and pickled zucchini.

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Gaia D.The apps, gnocchi, salads and pizza are great. A glass of Barbera is always a solid complement to an Italian meal. Stay away from the creative ravioli creations.

    55555 by Gaia D.


  • DAN C.PORCHETTA. Thank me later!

    55555 by DAN C.

  • Los Angeles TimesPappardelle fumé is handmade inch-and-a-half-wide noodles in a tomato cream sauce enriched with smoked mozzarella and bacon. It's really filling, but worth every calorie.

    55555 by Los Angeles Times


  • Christine N.Start off with the buratta plate and an elderflower gimlet--fresh goodness. The gnocchi or boar in chocolate sauce pasta is fab too.

    55555 by Christine N.


  • Showtime NetworkIt’s hard to find good Italian food, but look no farther. Mama is in the back, and her boys in the front. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. - Tracy

    55555 by Showtime Network


  • Fabricio V.I came to this place to see if the gnoquis were what people claim. The only potato gnoquis in LA for what I know. Well done. Place and food reminded me of Argentina a lot! Great ambiance
