A nice place to eat at -or extremely near- Universal Studios?

My family is going to the Dave Koz X'mas concert which is being held in Universal Studios.
We've NEVER been there!
Any ideas, anyone?

    I was just at Caioti Pizza Cafe about a week ago for a similar reason. I wanted to eat someplace close to Universal Studios that wasn't in Universal CityWalk. For me Caioti fit the bill perfect for a nearby casual lunch before hitting CityWalk.

      Ca Del Sole is definitely the best in the vicinity. But there are a few places at Universal City Walk that aren't half-bad ... Daily Grill, Wolfgang Puck Cafe or Karl Strauss ... and you can walk across the plaza from City Walk to the Amphitheater.

      NOTE: Except for Ca Del Sole, the locatiojns on the minimap bear no relation to where the orestaurants are located on the Universal property.

      Daily Grill
      Universal Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068

      Ca Del Sole
      4100 Cahuenga Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91602

      Wolfgang Puck Cafe
      1000 Universal Studios Blvd Ste 152, North Hollywood, CA 91608

      Karl Strauss Associated Micro Breweries
      1000 Universal Studios Blvd, Universal City, CA 91608

          Barsac Brasserie closed. It's now Firenze Osteria which got pretty much reamed today by S. Irene Virbila.

            I agree. Ca del Sole is a good choice.

              Ca del Sole should be your choice, and it is a good one, and it is just at the bottom of the hill from the amphitheatre.
