About C&O Cucina
Good food is about more than just a meal.  Journey back to the streets of Italy with the C&O Cucina, where food comes in gargantuan portions and community is part of the atmosphere. Our Rat Pack Martini Lounge sets us apart from our sister property, the C&O Trattoria. The bar is a great place to grab a drink and watch the game or just listen to the old crooners and enjoy classic pictures of Frank and Dean.  Happy Hour is Monday-Thursday from 4:00-7:00.  Monday we offer half priced bottles of wine.  For Private Parties we have a beautiful outdoor covered patio area and a private banquet room upstairs.  Located just east of Abbot Kinney at 3016 Washington Boulevard, we are open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.  The C&O looks forward to welcoming you, and tantalizing your taste buds with our various dishes prepared to your specifications, and of course our Killer Garlic Rolls.
