Romantic Italian or French nr Studio City...

I know of a few- Cafe Bizou, Tiramisu, Pinot...
But want to believe there are more and perhaps better
around...any suggestions are appreciated.

  1. La Frite in Woodland Hills is good, but maybe too far for you. I think they have a branch in Sherman Oaks.

    1. Petit Jaques just east of Dixie Cyn on S side of Ventura; Bistro Garden, west of Coldwater on the S side of Ventura. La Frite does have a place in Sherman Oaks, on Ventura, just w of Lemmona, but I don't think it's romantic.

      1. Ca' del Sole has a romantic patio (w/ heaters); also an attractive, inviting dining room & excellent Italian food. Near Universal; corner of Cahuenga & Lankershim.

        1. Try Locanda Veneta on 3rd Street off La Cienega. Romantic and never rushed. We've eaten there a few times and we were never pressured to leave. The last time we went I thought the food was a little salty but it was still good.

          1. While I haven't been in a while, Mezzomondo on Ventura was always very nice. Great lighting, nice seating, attentive Italian waiters. The food was terrific as well.
