Awesome!

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.

Fritto Misto has maintained it's local, friendly charm since it opened about 20 years ago. My wife and I have our go to favs and always substitute their veggies for pasta which is really a treat if you're wanting the flavor but avoiding the carbs. The staff are always friendly and courteous and you can bring your own bottle of... More

The staff here is great and I love that it's within walking distance of my house, but the food was pretty bad. The sauce tasted like it came from a can and my pasta with broccoli, olive oil and garlic was bland. This was my first visit, so maybe there are other dishes that are better, but I won't be... More

Family-focused and kid-friendly local Italian bistro. HUGE pasta portions, so you'll be pulling this out of the fridge for lunch the next day, and probably the day after that. The pasta is decently cooked, the meat seemed fresh, the spices authentic, and the wine list was very affordable and had a few decent finds. It's a good, affordable joint to... More

Fritto Misto has a deliberately 'distressed' or faded decor which is fine except that in places it shows through as genuinely faded & distressed - several pieces of the earlier ceiling lining are hanging down! The chairs are not upholstered, the seats are rippled and cracked and certainly not the most comfortable. The staff were quick, efficient and friendly and... More

Four of us had lunch there last week. We ordered from the daily special menu. The servings did not look fresh. Only one of us was able to eat part of what they served up. I ordered the "cajun tacos." I should have known better. The tortillas were like I'd never seen before - neither corn nor flour. They were... More

I'm Italian. I'm from back East - the home of great Italian food. I was skeptical heading to this restaurant as a guest and wasn't sure what to expect. In the end, it might have been one of the best meals I've had this year and perhaps in my top 5 favorite Italian meals and restaurants, country-wide. The pasta was... More
