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!

Really lovely food and a nice glass of wine! Just a little way out of downtown, not a fancy area but not bad. Street parking can be hard to find.

We had an early reservation and we are glad we did. Every table was filled on Christmas Eve. The food was fantastic, the service was perfect and it felt almost like an Osteria in Rome. Almost. I didn't pay in Euros.

I love this place. I live locally and whenever I want to go out for a super delicious dinner we go here. Some recommendations I have are the Toscana Salad (super yummy) the spaghetti with meatballs - it has a hint of citrus in there which makes it really unique and good, and of course their wood fired pizza is...

Went 15th for dinner, and parking is a real challenge, we walked two blocks and luckly were able to park in front of someones house. Plan on a walk! I had the veal stuffed with prochuto, small, but outstanding. In a white wine sauce with slivers of carrots and green beans. Like $24. Would go back with gym shoes for... More
