The bread and garlic dip and the chopped salad is all you need for a great meal. The Italian dishes are ok but those things are really what I like there. Portions are large so you will have leftovers.

Alejo is the main Italian restaurant we go to in the neighborhood if we want to celebrate a birthday and have mood in Italian food. Garlic olive dip with their homemade bread really opens up the appetite and their pizza and pasta are very cheese and tasty.

A great place for a low key Italian lunch or dinner, with emphasis on garlic. The bread and dipping sause is a great start, and the pasta is cooked just right. I usually opt for the chopped salad, as well.

Garlic and more garlic, but its really good. This is a simple restaurant, no table clothes, nothing fancy. The food, though, is excellent, and the service is good as well. The chopped salad is great. Walking distance from LMU, this is the nicest Italian restaurant around.

Substandard food, with the exception of their delicious pizza. The Marina Del Rey location never answer their phone, so if take-out is what you want, have fun walking-in and waiting waiting waiting.

My girlfriend and I have been twice, and it's been pretty good each time -- nothing mindblowing. We go for the strong garlic oil, for health reasons -- because the garlic seems to help clear minor infections. I had the pesto on linguine

Alejos is one of those hidden treasures that all the locals know about and people in the know travels far to delve in it's scrumptous food. Located in a strip mall next to a doughnut shop, the Alejos sign proclaims its nondescriptness.

The food is prepared in a simple but consistant manner. Everything is casual and Red Sauce Family Italian, very reasonable.

Fantastic local Italian restaurant with great prices. Garlic dipping sauce is yummy, but make sure everyone else in your party eats it too; otherwise you stink. We dine in or take out; but we're always happy and fat after every meal.

I moved back to Texas from LA in '96 and this is the restaurant I miss the most! The bread and garlic/olive oil that they bring you when you are seated is delicious -- just be careful not to eat too much to where you are too full for your

Been here during lunch time and even took a date one time. The food is great. The bread and garlic-olive oil dip is awesome (try adding cheese to the oil). Although I do admit I hate the fact that I got full on bread the first two times

This place is so fun and tasty. Food is good, authentic, and reasonable. Staff is really friendly and attentive. You can kick back here and truly relax with friends. If you want contrived, silly food for American yuppies, try one of

Tucked away in a strip mall, next to a 7-11, is this little gem of an Italian restaurant. Seating is family style, with one long table running down the middle of the dining area and a few other tables surrounding it. Food is served quickly, but the wait to get in can be lengthy. You're also allowed to bring your own wine without a corkage fee. Food is heavy on the garlic!

The best value Italian food comes from this small, hidden treasure. Alejo's has the BEST fried calamari appetizer (and they give you A LOT!). They also serve this garlic oil with the complimentary bread that hits the right spot for garlic

The atmoshphere is a little lacking (it can get quite noisy) but this is a favorite cheap-date spot of mine. Split a pizza and try their to-die-for soups!

Ever since Alejo's has changed cooks and staff ... the whole experienced has changed. It has gone downhill. We ordered food tonight and the spaghetti was overcooked and the spinach fettucinni alfredo.
My suggestion to the owner, hire back your old wait staff and cook and pay them the wage they deserve... considering the prices went up.

Can you believe one of the best Italian restaurants in the city is in Westchester?? Not too far from LAX is a great, cozy restaraunt along a mini restaurant row.

Great value and very popular with the locals, get there early or the wait

The margarita pizza and chopped salad are all you need! oh, besides the bread and garlic oil! I don't even like pizza, but I'll eat it here anytime! They don't tell you, but, you can substitute sauteed spinach (or broccoli) for your pasta

Who needs Buco di Beppo when there's Alejo's? The food here is excellent and the prices are even better. Come here with a large group and take over the dining room. A whole party can dine in style for under $20.

This is how pasta should be. Good, full of flavor, and inexpensive. The warm bread they bring is great. The Washington/Lincoln location is always packed and really too small for the amount of people that go through, but that's what
