If you are anywhere in the LA area, you must go to Fritto Misto. The food is outstanding and the servers, David, the first night and Kaitlyn at lunch are fabulous! This Fritto Misto is in Hermosa Beach, but a couple of blocks off the beach. You can walk to it from the pier. It is an unassuming place on... More

My son and I were in town and just happened upon this place by recommendation from the manager at the Billabong store. We were NOT disappointed, we started with the calimari and it was cooked perfect and not greasy, the staff was over the top attentive and knowledgable. We both had pasta dishes, I had the Il Carnivoro - it... More

I went here for dinner. I didn't have to book on a Saturday night, the restaurant is quite small but feels more spacious due to the large mirror wall. I had the calamari and then the pancetta pasta. Both dishes were huge! I saw quite a lot of people taking their leftovers home in a box so this seems like... More

Fritto Misto has not only been here for a while, it's grown in following and remains consistent. Good spot for friends and family and you can be a low key as you'd like. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine or check out their selected choices, which are well priced. The staff work hard and don't turn over. All positive... More

This place was recommended and we met friends for dinner and the food is really good. It's a little noisy but I am hard of hearing anyway so a little more sensitive to that... We got seated quickly even though they were busy but a reservation helps. Parking is dicey, especially on a good beach day, so we left plenty... More

We enjoyed this place on all fronts...food, service, price and local feel. The menu has a nice variety of dishes. The "build your own pasta" concept was new to us. The portions, including a side salad, are large and shareable. Be sure to try the "fried pillows" appetizer. A bonus: BYOB with a $2.50 corkage charge. Ashley provided helpful, friendly... More

Huge portions, could have split your meal w someone and still had plenty to eat! We had a great server for our big group, checked on us often, gave great suggestions. Would definitely go back!

Average fare, but huge portions. The menu here is extensive so maybe I'm missing some gems.The gorgonzola sauce was oily and bland. The alfredo sauce might have been from a jar; pasty and bland. The chicken parmesan was better but nothing special. Atmosphere is a little shabby, but service is good and prices are reasonable.
