Editorial review from GrubHub 12/21/2013

I've never had a restaurant throw the side of bread in a plastic bag loose with my delivery order- i would expect it to be wrapped in foil or something- really seems liek they don't care about their food. The pizza was soggy and overall not great- the onions and bell peppers were undercooked and crunchy so they didn't have very good flavor. I won't be ordering again. more

Old Fashion Italian Food 7/10/2009

This place is really amazing. The food is SOO good. sometimes depending on the chef the food isn't that amazing, but the majority of the time, im always stuffed beyond belief with flavorful food. The portion sized are HUGE. I usually share with my husband. When you look at the resturant from afar, it looks kind of gross because it rests in a strip mall kind of place, but smaller. But once you get past that, and finally eat the food, you would be thankful you did. Pros: Flavor=amazing Cons: kind of small more

Best Pizza on West Side of LA Period (from wistful NYC'ers) 12/22/2007

Alejo's may be hard to park at, it may not be ""foofy"" enough for most LA'ers who consider ambience a category, pshaw, you can't eat decor. The pizza kicks bum because ""big brother"" won't let me say a... I don't know if it's precisely NYC style but it reminds me of both the best pizza in Queens, Brooklyn and honestly Cleveland. Perfect crust, not too thick or thin with toppings and sauce SANDWICHED b/t fresh mozzarella. The pepperoni is real, it gets greasy and crispy and YUMMY. Dear lord people its animal fat, you can process it, eat it!!! I swear this is why everyone's skin, hair and nails are so nasty out here, this place uses butter, cream, olive oil and meat. YUM.......It's clean, neighborhood blue collar friendliness must be what puts people in LA off to this place. I never felt a wait. They look AT you, say hello, seat you and GIVE YOU TIME TO ENJOY the person you're with, the menu, your feet up for the first time that day. . . . .. I guess most of the folks who go here and complain haven't done a hard day's work to enjoy a relaxing, tasty, homemade meal Grazia Alejo's for making us happy full and not broke!!! GO NOW! Pros: Food, PIZZA, pasta, sauces, dear lord the bread and flan Cons: Ambience doesn't make food taste good dorks, it doesn't count more

Great pasta, despite a long wait 5/30/2007

Alejo's serves great Italian food--large portions, authentic taste, great atmosphere. The only problem is the wait--everytime I've been, I've had to wait at least twenty minutes. That being said, the food is definitely worth the wait, and even though they don't sell alcohol, they do serve it for a small cork fee. Pros: Great pasta, huge portions Cons: Parking is tricky more

Just try it... 3/22/2007

This is the best Italian food I've had since moving to the west coast. Its the closest thing to a family style east-coast Italian restaurant you'll find out here... god bless 'em. The first dish I order at a new Italian restaurant: Liguine w/red clam sauce - very good here. A bit of a ""local"" flavor to the dishes - but traditional enough to rule every other place I've been to in the area. Even the bread is good. They don't serve booz though - so bring you're own and pay the corkage fee. Also, there is a perpetual 20 minute wait - you can set your watch by it. Pros: Excellent food. Cons: Bring your own booz. more

Great find 1/19/2007

Went there last night. I love little dives but I thought this one might be a little too divey (is that a word?). But Im glad I want. Everything was good. There were 8 of us and we did a family style setup so everyone got to sample a little of everything with a second helping! Portions are large, lots of garlic, good stuff. Dont eat too much bread though...cause portions are large! Pros: Great food, large portions, friendly staff Cons: No parking more

Wonderful little slice of L.A. 11/24/2006

The service at this spot is so friendly, and the food is a great taste/cost value. If you have a date that's more impressed by financial smarts than glitz, this is the place to go. more

GARLIC BOMB!!! 11/18/2006

You will leave this place smelling like garlic -- depending on how you feel about garlic - that may be good or bad. Their bread is delicious but many of the dishes lack originality and depth- instead of flavoring the sauces they just pour on the garlic. If you're headed to Alejo, grab a bottle of wine (they're byo) and don't plan on making out with anyone within the next 24 hours. Pros: Bread, BYO Cons: Strip mall, garlic central more

Imperfect, but Good 11/16/2006

If you love garlic, you will enjoy the food. I have been here twice and both times the place has been absolutely packed with people and very loud. Not a good place for a date. You come for the cheap italian eats, but you are elbow to knee with the other patrons. Not a good place for people who like personal space, especially when the crying babies and wandering toddlers are added to the mix. It feels like a big family holiday dinner where you are gorging on huge platters of pastas while your third cousin twice removed yammers away in the background. Pros: good pasta with big portions Cons: very crowded, no parking more

Yummo!!!! 11/16/2006

Alejo's rocks! I love this place. I love the garlic. I love the oil. I love the entrees. I love the price. I always go to the Westchester location. It looks like a cafeteria inside. But it's all about the food. Go here. You won't regret it. Snobs, need not try! Pros: Great Food, Great Price! more

Casual dining at it's best 11/10/2006

This is the restaurant you go to when you and your spouse drag yourself in the door, look each other in the eye, and realize that if you're waiting for them to cook, you'll both starve first. Then someone suggests, ""Let's go to Alejo's"" and everyone smiles, a ray of light pierces the darkness, and you see that life isn't so difficult after all. Pros: Great Italian food. Excellent service. Casual environment. Cons: It's a busy place and you have to BYOB more

Lots of Food/Tons of Garlic 7/26/2006

I agree with the reviewer below. This is a good place with great value for your money, but 9.7 is too high unless you would rate garlic a 10. The food is good. The prices are low. more

Delish Italian Food! 3/5/2006

This is our favorite Italian food restaurant in Los Angeles. Alejo's dishes are freshly prepared and have a home-made taste to them. I highly reccomend that you try this place atleast once, I reccomend the chicken picatta. All of their dishes are good however. It is near LAX, which is good if you are catching a flight or picking someone up. You will not be disappointed. Pros: Inexpensive, Family-atmosphere Cons: Parking, Long Lines at times more

9.7?!? I think not! 7/18/2005

When I saw the 9.7 rating for this restaurant, I immediately called up a friend to suggest we try it out. We both love Italian, and a 9.7 is damn impressive....or so we thought! First of all, the ""Italian"" Restaurant looks like a cheap fast food joint. The reviews warn that it isn't pretty, but I didn't expect it to be downright ghetto looking. As for the food, the pastas are just very heavily infused with garlic...and just because it has a ton of garlic, it doesn't mean it's authentic!! And forgive me, but it was rather laughable to see some people drinking a bottle of wine with their pasta in this run down looking fast food ""Italian"" joint....it's like seeing people drinking wine at the mall with their food from Sbarro. This place is ok for fast food pasta, but the rating should be an 8.8-9.0, NOT 9.7. Pros: garlic dip Cons: decor, parking, location more

Great Food 6/6/2005

After finding Alejo's on this site and reading the reviews, I decided to take a stab at it and try it out. Wow what a deal it was. As I found to be true in other reviews, it is located in a very unique location....a strip mall next to a 7-11. But don't let that stop you. The food was GREAT and VERY affordable. This was the third restuarant I've tried off of this site and once again I was not disappointed, especially with the price. Dinner for two (good size portions), non alcoholic drinks and salads it came up to less than thirty dollars. No complaints here check it out for yourself. Pros: Food, Price, Quality more

Neighborhood Italian 3/24/2005

Don't let the outside fool you. It's in a strip mall and not much to look at but the food is EXCELLENT. Pastas are made fresh and they have delicious bread and great daily specials. This is a garlic lover's paradise. Service is quick and friendly, but on weekend nights you'll definitely have to wait. Parking can also be difficult. But it's definitely worth it. It's fun for a date too. It's not quiet and romantic, but fun and lively, with people bustling around constantly. It has its own unique charm. Pros: good food, inexpensive, lively Cons: parking, crowded more

Garlic 3/13/2005

Finding a parking space will be painful, the wait perhaps long, and you'll take one look at this place (located in a strip mall near a 7-11) and think twice about entering but don't let the challenges keep you from entering this garlic eden. This place has awesome pasta, great bread with olive oil and garlic dip, and is CHEAP. It's fun to sit at the family style tables and actually chat with your fellow neighbors. more

So garlicky, so good... 4/2/2004

If you want to go to a place with fresh bread and accompanying garlic-infused oil for dipping, a plate of fresh hot pasta, tasty Chopped Italian salad, and good service, then Alejo's is the place for you. At Alejo's it's all about the food!!!!! The ambience isn't your stereotypical Italian restaurant with the ""bring-the-outdoors-in"" type of feeling, but who cares with food this hearty and flavorful!? By the way, the Westchester location serves alcohol. Plan to fast for one day, then go to Alejo's! Pros: Garlic oil for bread, Pizzas, pastas, salad more

Garlic, Garlic & More Garlic 10/24/2003

Oh lord, if you love garlic, you need to check out Alejo's. Sure the walls have a tacky 70's style decorations and ugly tablecloths/carpet, forget all that, you're in for some value. Before you can start eating, you'll be gazing at a dish of olive oil with loads of garlic for the bread. I once made a meal out of that and had to the main course home. I recommend the chicken parmegiana. Keep in mind, if you're on a date, you may not wanna eat here... garlic is prevalent in every dish. Give this place a shot... italian food-enthusiasts, you may not like this.... but if you're the type like me to eat italian once in a while, check out Alejo's. Pros: Garlic, Garlic, More Garlic Cons: Garlic, Garlic, More Garlic more
