Happened upon this place on a Sunday evening. Excellent food but exorbitant bill. The special was recommended and turned out to cost 45 bucks. The price was never quoted. We ended up paying 184 dollars for a meal that should have costed around 100 dollars. Service was good and the food was excellent, but a bit extortionate!

This is very authentic Italian place which has a great location right on the Venice beach. The atmosphere and people are very nice and warm. Simply I love this place. They have the best carpaccio with truffles.

We dined at Casa Ado two weeks ago. Delicious authentic Italian cuisine, with excellent professional wait staff. Very good selection of wines both by the glass and full bottles. We were a party of six, with individual tastes, and everyone was more than pleased with their choices. Excellent pastas, with innovative sauces (e.g., wild boar). Every detail (e.g., focaccia to...

After a week in Newport Beach where the cuisine we experienced could best have been described as "voluminous" and uninspiring, we were pleasantly surprised to find Casa Ado at 12 Washington Boulevard Marina del Rey, an Italian restaurant that served quality food where size was not the guiding factor! My wife, daughter and I dined at Casa Ado on the... More

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
