Third Time- Still Charmed

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... read 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

We tried this place based on Trip Advisor reviews. The staff was pleasant, the place clean with mostly all tables and chairs. I felt a little cramped due to how close the tables were together. The food was good, short rib ravioli and rigatoni with meatballs and sausage, baked I believe. A lot of people would rate this place a... More

This continues to be a great choice if you want to have a relaxing meal with friends or family. The ambiance is relaxing and the decor is nice. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is very good. The pasta dishes are fresh and delicious. The appetizers were good sized and well prepped. I've been here close to... More

Haven't been to this place in months but since my friend wanted to buy me dinner for my birthday (my choice of restaurant of course!) it didn't even took a second for me to decide to go to this place earlier tonight. My friend ordered a special halibut entrée and i ordered the Ravioloni con Costolette di Bue. Again and... More

It was our last night visiting with a friend in Long Beach, her friend suggested she take us here as it had been a great experience on her previous visits, we walked up from her house and were soon seated, I usually prefer to sit outdoors, but we were happy to have a table near the wood fire pizza oven,...

I consider myself lucky because I live down the street from La Parolaccia Osteria - so I'm a frequent diner. The restaurant itself is totally old school family style. Very comfortable. The staff is knowledgeable and beyond friendly - they make friends with their customers (they know me well because I'm a really picky eater). The food is classic Italian... More

Packed with people but not a long wait to get service, good food and wine, and good service once you got inside. It was hard to get refills on the water, but hey, that's California these days. My only complaint would have to be our table, but you could blame that on not making reservations in advance.

Thanks to our Long Beach friend who introduced us to this delightful restaurant. Everyone at our table ordered pastas and no one was disappointed. Pastas were fresh and delicious. Fried appetizers were light and perfectly prepared. Attentive service. Extensive menu, so there are lots to try on future visits!
