This is Italian food for timid middle class people - bland, clean, and uninteresting. Our Caesar salad had an overly sweet dressing and too much cheese, and the pizza we ordered was undercooked and lacking in flavor. There are many better

I really miss the Earth, Wind & Flour in Westwood. But, the Santa Monica location is great, too.
Great pizza, pasta ...pretty much everything on the menu is great. Always come away with a very full belly.
My family and I will always go back!

Look, it may not be the most exciting or innovative place around. But the food is consistent. And always tasty. That is enough for me to come back again and again.

I don't know why I haven't written a review on this place yet! But OMG!

I've driven past this place for years, and for some reason never had the chance to go in!

This place is very homey! Even with the interesting sawdust floors! Everyone who works here is extremely friendly and patient!

I also have to note that EW&F has one of the best happy hours in West LA! They have $3 well drinks and beers for $2.50 or something like that! They also have cheap wine specials and good martinis for only about $5!

I probably shouldn't say more otherwise all the college students will flock here with their $50 left in their checking accounts and need to get f*cked up like, yesterday!

They have great mild sourdough rolls which could be more sourdough-y but they are good enough!

Whenever I come here I order the Angel Hair and marinera sauce with meatballs! The sauces they use are fresh and not canned and the meatballs are never frozen, and taste good even after you put your leftovers in your fridge! The Parmasan cheese is really good and not to mild and not to bitter!

I love this place! xo

Pros: Sports Bar & Lunch Specials

.

Earth Wind & Flour in Santa Monica always serves up good pizza and I love their salads - they are huge and filling. I've also tried some of their pasta dishes and enjoyed them as well. This is a great place to catch a football game...they have tvs in the bar area or to grab a bite to go. If you are looking for a casual dining spot with solid food & friendly staff - Earth Wind & Flour is the place. The portions are large and decently priced.

I have gone to this place several times. The staff is usually friendly , the service is good and the food is good for the price. Come on, we are talking about pasta and pizza. I have tried many of their chicken dishes and have never had a bad meal there. I like the food there. I know its not top notch real Italian cooking but it is good. I know there are plenty of Italian places charging twice the amount for pretty much the same thing. If you are looking for an easy going, not expensive place with decent food, then this is the place. I usually sit in the bar area. They recently put in new booths and have big screen tvs on all the walls. I do miss the pool table.

Pros: hot food served fast, good quality for the money

Cons: none that I can think of

.

I didn't go here with the expectation of a brilliant and authentic Italian meal, and boy, was I right on the money with that one. The food's edible. That's about it. Bland and uninspired. Only a kid would like food like this, and that's okay, it takes time to develop a palate. However, I don't think the people at Earth Wind and Flour understand this concept. The pizza is gummy, the cheeses are bargain basement, and the sauce, well...remember that kid we all went to school with who was satisfied with getting Cs in everything? That's the sauce if it was a person: "Ah, I don't really need to be good at anything, I'll just exist, and that's enough for me!" Mediocre, flat, boring. Stay away from this place if you know anything about Italian food and appreciate a cuisine that can take simple ingredients and make them sing. At Earth Wind and Flour, they just pound the voice out of everything they touch.

The location is great though. Service is on par with the food. The neighborhood seems nice. Want my advice? Head across the street to Whole Foods and buy yourself something worth eating from the food bars there. I sure wish I had.

Pros: The area is nice.

Cons: Valet parking! It's free, but totally unnecessary. THE FOOD!!

.

I have ordered delivery from them about 3 / 4 times in the last couple of weeks. Every single time, the order has been wrong! It's absolutely annoying. So much so, we through out the menu.

No utensils, wrong drinks, wrong sides... etc. And when I called to let them know my order was wrong - they got upset. Nice. I will not be eating their less than average food again

The food here is just average, but the atmoshphere and value can't be beat. There food is always consistent. If you want more basic home cooking, it is great. The Cobb Salad is one of the best and you get all the bread you can eat.

Pros: service, atmosphere, parking

This was one of my favorite places for lunch and dinner because of the casual atmosphere and healthy menu, but the last few visits have been disappointing. Watery pasta dishes, food that's served borderline cold. Perhaps I just had bad luck, but after three times I stopped frequenting this location.

This restaurant is truly Italian. The minestrone soup is superb and the service is great. Those of you that don't do carb will enjoy the meatballs....gigantic!

A restaurant in LA without the LA attitude. We always get great service here, and it is our staple when we dont want to spend a ton of cash but want good food and great service. The salads aren't great, but the pizza is delicious and the fish special is pretty decent.

Earth Wind & Flour is a health food restaurant. There are a lot of starchs on the menue. I recommend the tuna sandwich and criss-cut fries

You have to try the BBQ Chicken Salad - it is top notch! I've also heard they are good with big lunch orders to go. Cute atmosphere too - quiet and simple.
