This is an awesome spot for lu...

This is an awesome spot for lunch, simply the best for sandwiches and salads. They are very busy all the time plus they are open late til 4am on Saturday nights so you can go there after a party or club. I was there yesterday with my mom after shopping and we were thinking to get something light for lunch. Our waiter offered the Tuna Salad and Salmon Salad. Both were so, so delicious and scrumptious... I also loved the fact that they serve canned soft drinks. We were planing to order desert and coffee as well, but felt so full that didn't feel like having more room for anything else. Service was outstanding, no question asked about the location and the atmosphere was just perfect. The weather was very nice so the outdoor seating was just another icing on the cake. Will be back for sure!! Love it!!

Uh...it'll do.

I took today off work to recoup after my rafting trip. My friend N.R. (the bread guy) still wanted to do lunch. Aargh. I wanted to be lazy. But I groaned and replied a reluctant “yes”.

I’ve been to this chain lunch spot a few times before. It’s solid. It’s not pants wetting good. But, it gets the job done.

I ordered the South Beach Tostada. Chicken, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, mozzarella on top of a small, thin, crispy disc of cheese.

Would it be my last meal on death row? Hell no. However, it was the perfect antidote to my prior foray into full-bodied beers, fried things and grease.

My friend loved his panini, and ordered the basket of bread that his father’s bakery delivers, to show off what real bread tastes like. It comes with this tasty pesto mayo.

Keep on moving folks, nothing to see here. Nothing funny happened, the place is nondescript, nothing really to make fun of or gush over. It’s just an upscale lunch joint filled with spoiled Beverly Hills’ brats talking to their phones instead of each other and boring businessmen.

I still sort of kind of dig the place, though.

Like Dining in the Third World -- Without the Charm

I will always remember Il Tramezzino for the overpriced lousy food, amateur waiter and careless service, loud radio blaring over cheap speakers, and enough cigarette smoke to gag a Frenchman.

The so-called Grilled Breast of Chicken sandwich is cardboard-like flatbread with some kind of green mush inside. I suspect they put all the ingredients in a food processor and then spatula it onto the bread. The $11 sandwich comes a la carte, with no option for a side order unless you want to pay at least $5 extra.

Service was slow, bordering on hostile. I was only given the bare minimum of attention and basically forgotten once the food arrived.

The ""atmosphere"" is an obnoxious blend of loud radio and grey clouds of cigarette smoke. I felt like I was dining somewhere in the third world.

the best lunch in the valley

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. The chicken special sandwich, the salads, the pasta...there has never been anything I've tried and disliked. The service is amazing, the waiters all know me by name and are always friendly. Its really an amazing place to catch up with friends over some food and coffee...the fact that it is one of the few places where you can smoke makes it even better

Overpriced and Sub-Par

I was not impressed with anything at Il Tramezzino in Studio City. Service, food, and atmosphere were sub-par.

My waiter answered my questions with either one word answers, or a grunt. I told him I had never been there before, yet he made no menu suggestions, he just gave me a blank stare. When I asked about the chicken breast sandwich, he simply said, ""Good"". He never checked back with me after dropping off my sandwich. After eating, I waited for at least 20 minutes for my bill -- which only came after I flagged down the waiter and asked for it. He finally delivered my bill, without a word -- not even a ""Thank you"" -- and without slowing down, as he rushed to another table.

The chicken breast sandwich was mostly hard, dry, tasteless bread with very little chicken or anything else inside. It comes with no sides, just the sandwich for $10.95.

Both inside and outside, customers are forced to listen to the radio station playing over Il Tramezzino's loudspeakers. It's pretty annoying to have to hear all the commercials, news broadcasts, stupid DJ comments, and traffic alerts when you're trying to enjoy a peaceful meal. Can't they afford satellite music service, like most restaurants? Or, even pleasant music from an IPod?

Il Tramezzino also allows cigarette smoking at the outdoor tables. Someone lit up near me, and forced me to move inside halfway through my meal. I'm sorry, but smoking at a restaurant (even outdoors) is just plain rude.

Great lunch spot

I frequent this restaurant on a weekly basis. It's usually not too crowded, but can get PACKED some days. I'd recommend a Pasta dish; Pasta Tramezzino is superb. By far the best hot dish on the menu, it consists of Pasta Penne, cheese, mushrooms, and a light marinara.
If you're looking for something light, I go through subconscious diets off their Pasta Salad (ask for a side of shaved parmesan).
I do wish they had a bread appetizer, but it does the job. Just cold ciabatta bread with a basil dip-- mediocre.
Overall the service is incredibly speedy, parking is fine, and the menu makes for a great lunch.

Great place for food with friends

This place is known for its sandwiches and, trust me, they are gooood. It's a small hidden location on Ventura but it's pretty cute and has a comfortable vibe to it. Classic Italian food is served here with a pinch of American touches. The staff is friendly. This place can get packed on Friday and Saturday nights. It has become somewhat of a ""hot spot"" or a place to go with a group of friends for a not too big meal that will leave you satisfied :)

And YES the rumors are true, they do charge and extra fee per person. I think it's 50 cents, I'm not sure why I didn't care to ask because... well it's just 50 cents.. but you can ask next time you go there =)

Sneaky, Check your bill carefully

We just went to the new Tarzana location. The food and service were o.k. When the check arrived I noticed an extra $1.00 charge. I asked the waiter what that was, and he informed me that they are adding a $.50 per person surcharge to offset the high fuel prices. With lunch entrees starting at $10, this is highway robbery. My bill for 2 people was $30, there is no excuse for an additional charge. We will not be returning to this restaurant at any of their locations!
