I eat at Italy's Little Kitchen every time I fly into LA so this review is a few years past due. It is very close to the airport and has great Italian food. I've never had a bad meal and the prices are very reasonable. You can't really park out front unless you are lucky, but unofficially I just park... More

Stopped in after getting out of LAX. The place is big, but they only had the section by the front door opened when we went. Our waitress brought us warm bread with olive oil and balsamic. We both ordered the Chicken Parmesan with Angel hair pasta, and a side of broccoli. The bread was fresh, and our entrees were large... More

Joined three colleagues for dinner before a client visit. Parking was a challenge, but had no problem getting seated once we got there. Bread was delicious, and fresh! The Caesar salad was OK - not the best, but far from the worst I've had. Ordered the California pasta because I love artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. It did not disappoint. Topped... More

Do not go here! The pasta is not fresh and the veggies were previously frozen and the meat was low quality. My water was never refilled. I was never checked on by anyone, had to ask busboy for my check and my change was wrong but I stilled tipped over 20% because I work in industry. The manger was giving... More

Stayed at Custom Hotel nearby. Heavy traffic right by the restaurant, which is quite a distraction for some seating, but otherwise a good experience with tasty food selections and drinks, as well. I'd go back, but wait for inner seating.

The back room which seats about 10 is ok but the rest of restaurant has an open kitchen and I dont believe i have ever eaten in a restaurant with this level of noise from a constant barrage of clattering dishes, dishes, pots and pans. I had the linguini with clams: 4 tiny clams in shell and the rest was... More
