This old-school Italian restaurant serves some of the mother country’s most classic dishes in a traditionally decorated spot. Reminiscent of the more glamorous 1940-50s Hollywood, this institution still attracts today’s celebrities with it’s attentive, family-like service, and delicious menu.

“I love Dan Tana’s, actually. It’s on Santa Monica next to the Troubadour. It’s an old school dive restaurant, it’s like Musso and Frank. It’s like a 1965 Dean Martin Sammy Davis Jr kind of restaurant.” –  John Demsey (Group President, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.)
