Have we got a surprise for you! Just imagine beautiful lakeside dining conveniently located in Westlake Village. Boccaccio’s Restaurant combines excellent food with a view. How decadent. Open for lunch, dinner, and brunch, the extensive menu offers filet mignon, lobster tails, and wild salmon. I personally enjoyed the lobster bisque and the crab cake as starters and then moved on to one of the delicious main courses. Believe it or not, I did leave room for dessert! I recommend you try the Baked Alaska. You won’t regret it and you will certainly remember it. They offer a variety of Italian favorites but can also do vegetarian and vegan options. And naturally the wine list is extensive.
The restaurant can accommodate both indoor and outdoor seating. I recommend the outdoor choice just for the fun of it. Lake Sherwood is privately owned but it is still possible to rent some paddle boats where people can actually have a picnic since their meals are delivered. What a great place to have a special event — wedding or baby showers, bar mitzvahs, or just about anything that is special to you. There is room for everyone as indoor and patio areas are both large enough to accommodate a crowd. The restaurant suggests calling ahead for reservations at (818) 889-8300. Go and enjoy!
Boccaccio’s is located at 32123 Lindero Boulevard in Westlake Village.
