looking for nice quaint restaurant in the Woodland Hills area.

I'd like to find a nice somewhat quiet place to go for dinner with my aunt. Any good recommendations?

      can you tell me why you like this place? I never heard of it. Thanks

        Nice Italian food in a an intimate atmosphere with very good service. It seems "old world" in the feel and service to me and thought it would be a good choice with your aunt.

    2. GoRikee is good. I have heard great things about Brandywine, but have yet to go! I like La Frite, but not all hounds do!

        I agree about La Frite. It is a pleasant room, the service is friendly, it's not too noisy, the food is pretty good (can't go wrong with the roast chicken, or the mussels, or a Caesar salad), the portions are large, the drinks are generous, and it's not expensive.

      2. I second both Gorikee and Brandywine. Brandywine is a European style dining experience. Draped booths and some tables. A somewhat more expensive dining experience. Gorikee's specialty is garlic, in everything and everywhere. Salad and dessert can have garlic too. Two of the better non-corporate food places in Woodland Hills area. If you want to drive a little, The Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga is nice and quiet. Another drive to Weslake Village (Next to Finn's Seafood Grill) and there is Galleto's an Italian/Brazillian restaurant. One of the best rib eye steaks that I have ever had.

        1. La Frite is really intimate with good food, I also like Nicolas on Ventura.
