Hollywood Loves Aventine Trattoria – Old World Italian Cuisine

LA’s The Place Top Pick for Best Italian Cuisine in Hollywood!

In the fashionable Cahuenga Corridor in Hollywood, Aventine Trattoria has been a welcome part of the neighborhood, serving authentic Italian meals that mix California’s freshest ingredients with the old-world touch in the kitchen.


Now in its second year, Aventine Hollywood is a collaboration between brothers Gian-Paolo Veronese and chef Adolfo Veronese, who opened the beloved Taverna Aventine in San Francisco, along with Los Angeles restaurateurs Sylvain Bitton and JT Torregiani.

With Aventine Hollywood, the team has realized its vision of the modern Italian trattoria, where classic flavors mingle with youthful energy. Thus, the social trattoria is born, mixing Italian cheer and California chic in a room so warm you won’t want to leave.

LA Canvas said it well:  “Aventine brings the charm of old world Rome married with a modern San Francisco-inspired design aesthetic.”

Aventine Hollywood is all about the mix: old and new, classic and contemporary, celebrities and civilians. But what remains consistent is the commitment to quality and conviviality for everyone who steps through the doors.

Sometimes a restaurant has the perfect combination of those magical ingredients that make it a favorite of celebrities and movers and shakers… and in Hollywood, Aventine hit the mark.

LA Magazine bestowed high praise: “Best patio in Los Angeles.” The ambiance is charming, fun, and comfortable.


Guests can look forward to rustic dishes served in a welcoming environment, marked by wooden floors, brick walls, and illuminated olive trees.

Whether you choose a seat in the vibrant outdoor patio or tuck yourself away indoors, you can expect a wide-ranging menu of shareable plates, pastas, and pizzas prepared in the wood-burning oven, along with a pleasing selection of signature cocktails, quality wines, and beer on tap.

Of course, ambiance alone can’t make a restaurant, and Aventine Hollywood has the menu to please adventurous guests. The pizzas are a customer favorite, with atypical toppings such as Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Black truffle honey, along with classics like the Margherita, baked to perfection in the wood-fire oven.



More recommendations: the Ravioli, Scottadito (grilled lamb chops with kumquat confit), and for dessert, the warm, comforting Zoccolini (fried pizza dough), and the rich, luscious Caramel Budino (pudding). Take a peek at their menu!

The late-night crowd will be especially pleased that the kitchen is open until 2 am on weekends when you don’t want the party to end.
