Having arrived from Hawaii, we were tired but thrilled to be in the heart of old Hollywood. The restaurants near the Roosevelt Hotel seemed too touristy and crowded and well, annoying. So we went further out a few blocks and stumbled on a real gem of a genuine Italian restaurant, The pasta appetizer was fabulous, a meat sauce just not... More

We had plans to dine in a different restaurant and was turned away because of a big private party being held, we were told that everyone who had reservations was called...we were not called. Bummer! They called around and made reservations for us at Aventine's. Much to our surprise it was a great last minute substitute! We had the Salumi... More

After accidentally stumbling upon this restaurant during our stroll through Hollywood we ate here twice. Whereas the first visit was to our full satisfaction (amazing risotto and lasagna, very nice patio, and great service) our second visit left much to be desired. The waiter was inattentive, rushed, and appeared to be under influence of alcohol. Hence, our feelings about this... More

Was here for a private function and found Aventine extremely impressive! It's conveniently located to the Walk of Fame area, a beautiful setting (with a lovely courtyard area). The food was beautifully presented and delicious, and the wine selection was perfect. The staff was also exceptional... Not a bad word to say about Aventine - Very highly recommended!!

My family and I had a spectacular meal at Aventine! The proprietor of Cafe Etc. across the street recommended the restaurant and our dining experience exceeded our expectations. We dined in a back area with a canvas roof can be opened in the summer. The bar area had a screen showing an Italian movie, il Sorpasso, (subtitled). The owner waited... More

From Wine list to Tiramasu - EVEN the waiter we had was from near Naples! Don't let the neighborhood deter you! Park and walk 2 blocks up to the Hollywood walk of fame on Hollywood Blvd!

Just had dinner with ten friends and the night could not have been more perfect. We were seated in the back outside patio and the space was great, temperature just right and we could all hear each other! Carmelo may be the best waiter ever and I haven't even gotten to the food. We shared two pizzas with the thinnest... More

This is probably the very best Italian restaurant I've been to and the best pasta I've ever had! The service was impeccable and the desserts were TO DIE FOR! Highly recommend it!

Stopped in from a recommendation from the mama shelter hotel. Couldn't be happier. The wait staff was fantastic the restaurant itself is an architectural wonder. The open air dining room in the back of the restaurant is very reminiscent of Austin Texas. The food was out of this world. All of the dishes I tried were fantastic and it did... More

Been here so many times, I am definitely a regular by now. Every single time, it's a great time. From the moment you hand your car to the valet, to when you're greeted in the restaurant, everyone has a legit smile on their face. Truly friendly and helpful staff. The ambiance is beautiful as they mastered the perfect combination between... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
