This is our favorite local Italian restaurant. They serve authentic Roman meals, well, as close as you can get in Long Beach. We went to their wine dinner paired with Antinori wines. It was all good. The food, the wine, the service and atmosphere were very enjoyable. Simple, quality food prepared well is a perfect combination you wish all restaurants... More

We had New Years Day dinner at La Parolaccia for a party of 8. They were able to accommodate our party and were most gracious. Food was fabulous, service was prompt and efficient. An enjoyable3 evening.

Impressive daily specials. The pasta is made fresh. Served hot, made to order. We tried a vodka sauce and an Alfredo sauce. Both were excellent. The staff was conscientious of service and asked if we would like our meal served right away or if we wanted a more leisurely dinner service to finish salad and appetizers first.

We don't go out on a regular basis, as we enjoy dining at home, however... This place is only a few blocks away and always has a table available. Even the bar is a great seat. The staff are all very informative and happy and the food... Every dish we have had there from the apps to dessert is EXCELLENT.

La Parolaccia Osteria Italiana is my husband and my "go-to" place for "special" and plain old "let's go out for dinner" occasions. Why? Simply because the food is delicious and the atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Stefano and staff are like a big family (some of them are his family) and they treat you like you are family too. Go... More

Last night we couldn't decide where to dine while visiting Long Beach and while driving around we stumbled upon this place-for the third time. I am so happy we were driving on Broadway or we would have never remembered how much we love it here. We stopped with no reservation on a Saturday night and were told it would be... More

I was looking for fresh pasta. And by looking I mean I was a ferocious beast desperate for good pasta. We were in Long Beach on a business trip but had no idea where to go. This went to this little nook and it was all and more! Fresh pasta. Fresh sauces! Just wow. Waitress brought complimentary garlic and dried... More

If you want to walk into a little family owned Italian place, full of rustic charm and great food, this would be it. You can see the fire blazing away in the brick oven. The walls are covered with Italian mementos and paintings. The wait staff is very pleasant, fun, and prompt. Our food was obviously homemade and delicious. We... More
