The restaurant is located very close to the beginning of the Venice Boardwalk from Marina del Rey. It is a real Italian place, managed by Italian peple and Italian cooks. Quality of pasta was very good, up to real Italian standards, we had some basic...More

Delicious, masterly prepared dishes. Efficient but warm, friendly but classy waiters. Charming atmosphere. A piece of genuine Italy where Europeans will surely find back their roots. One of the two best places in which we had dinner over a 3-weeks tour in California. Probably the...More

Been going there for years and it's simply an amazing casual restaurant. The food is really good.....the chef Juan has absolutely embraced the Italian tradition and delivers an outstanding quality food. Casa Ado has ,to my opinion, the BEST grilled calamari(appetizer) in LA. The wild...More

This is my favorite restaurant in Venice. The octopus and calamari are always perfect. I have unrealistically high expectations for this restaurant because I get to eat here only one or two times a year. Each time it exceeds my expectations. Don't miss this gem.

Such a shame about this place. Food and service was absolutely first rate, and unexpected as the outside & decor doesn't shout good food!! Unless you're up front the decor is dark and opressive and, a pet Hate of mine, all hard surfaces. So it's...More

Happened upon this place on a Sunday evening. Excellent food but exorbitant bill. The special was recommended and turned out to cost 45 bucks. The price was never quoted. We ended up paying 184 dollars for a meal that should have costed around 100 dollars....More

This is very authentic Italian place which has a great location right on the Venice beach. The atmosphere and people are very nice and warm. Simply I love this place. They have the best carpaccio with truffles.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
