Not to be confused with C & O Trattoria, C & O Cucina is just down the street in Marina Del Rey. Although the location is completely different, the menu seems to be the same as the other C & O. One thing it is missing, though, is the fun outdoor atmosphere. Nonetheless, I had a restaurant.com gift certificate so I had to try it out.
The best part about this C & O, just like the other one, is the garlic knots. The arrive as soon as you sit down and don’t stop flowing until you leave the place. This is definitely not the place to go with someone who doesn’t eat garlic. While snacking on the garlic knots, I looked at the menu long enough to decide I wanted the Rosemary Chicken Ravioli. This came with a creamy tomato sauce.
I snacked on more garlic knots while waiting for my main course and then it arrived. Just as can always be expected at C & O, the ravioli was delicious. The creamy tomato sauce was great, while there was just the right amount of ravioli to stuff me. The chicken stuffed inside was also delicious. Although the atmosphere isn’t as fun as the C & O Trattoria, C & O Cucina is a nice, reliable place to get some Italian food. Oh and those awesome garlic knots.
