    Cafe Pinguini is my favorite restaurant in Playa Del Rey. The service is spectacular and the food is beyond delicious. You cannot go wrong with any choice. A few of my favorites are the Seabass, the Fettuccini Bolognese, Mushroom Risotto, oh and the bread is divine. Perfect for romantic evening or beautiful family dinner.

    It never misses. The fresh, homemade food is always the best. The in house freshly made pasta is the best. Took some friends who’d never dined there and now they are in love with the restaurant.

    In January I dined at Caffe Pinguini with my family. We had a wonderful time. The wait staff was very helpful. The food was excellent. The portions were so generous that I remember taking home lunch for the next day. I felt that this place was a real find. So I decided to go back the next time that I was in the area. I did tonight. Sadly I was very disappointed. The wait staff still was very helpful. The atmosphere still was nice. The food still was excellently prepared. Regretfully the portion size was greatly reduced. I ordered a chicken dish. I received two small pounded portions of chicken. I doubt that together they were even a single whole chicken breast. My girlfriend order a veal dish and received three small pieces of veal. In order not to disrupt the meal, neither of us said anything to anyone until after dinner as we were driving home. Independently we both formed the same judgment: Our dinners simply were an effort to stretch leftovers after a weekend. For the price that I paid, we should have received much more generous portions. Sad to say, given this experience, I will have to think twice before I go back to Caffe Pinguini.

    Very lovely place in Playa del Rey, the service was very attentive and had a nice local ambiance. We had the seafood pasta, four cheese pizza and spinach and mozzarella salad. The pasta was very well made and had a nice variety of seafood. The salad was basic and made well. The pizza was a little disappointing as it was too dry and we ended up putting the salad on top to eat. Overall a wonderful place and would recommend.

    This is a regular go to restaurant for us. The food is always excellent, as is the service (on occasion recently they seem to be understaffed, but that seems to be the new normal in Los Angeles). One comment. One of their best dishes is the eggplant parmigiana. My wife gets it almost every time we go. On this visit she talked it up to a friend, and they both ordered it. To our surprise, the portion size was noticeably smaller - it appeared to be almost half the size we’ve become accustomed to. Both plates were the same. It was a bit of a surprise. Hopefully it was a one-off, this visit only. It IS a wonderful dish.

    Pinguini is always solid in every way. The food is good, and they take great care of you. They’re not experimenting with crazy new flavor combinations, or breaking new culinary ground, they’re doing a great job with classics, and I think meeting a sweet spot of being lovely, without being pretentious. Just a great place to enjoy good company, and good food.

    Found this restaurant via a Google search and looked at reviews. Exceeded our expectations!! Wait staff couldn’t have been more helpful - amazing wine recommendations, dinner selections and overall service -worked with our time constraints on making it to airport to catch our Red eye flight. Highly recommend and would revisit next time we are in LA. Husband got Chilean Sea Bass and I got Oso Buca Ravioli -we split a cesar salad and Butternut squash soup, also highly recommend sautéed spinach appetizer (if you like spinach)

    This is a great restaurant for Italian food done well. It is NOT an Italian restaurant for those who routinely order a bottle of Italian wine with dinner. The Italian wines on the Wine List were all (except 2 or 3) over $100, and many over $200. Come on, a Chianti for $120??? I noticed most diners were having wine by the glass, or no wine at all. The unaffordability of the wines detracted greatly from a great dining experience for the two of us.

    made reservations for Valentines day. when we arrived we were told there was a very limited menu. because of food allergies i can only eat specific items they serve. i was never told of the limited menu, there was nothing on the website. when i complained to the waiter he arrogantly said "i have never worked at a restaurant that did not have a holiday limited menu" as though it was on me to know their position. what a crock. i have been to many restaurants on holidays and most are able to provide great service with full menus. they wouldn't accomidate my food needs. i was left without a meal on Valentines. Never going back.

    Good, traditional Italian fare. Boisterous, fun, busy place. Loud, but not too loud and pretty close seating. Service and be slow. Waiters do know the dishes, so heed their advice. Parking in tough, but they do have valet, which is fairly inexpensive.
