Always delicious

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.

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

La Parolaccia Osteria is a restaurant in a cute neighborhood of Long Beach called Bluff Heights, where the homes remind one of cottages in fairy tales. The restaurant fits into this charming neighborhood with both its decor, attention to service, and excellent meals. Consistently from the appetizers (calamari, bufala e Prosciutto), through the meals (spaghetti, ravioli) to dessert (tiramisu), each... More

We enjoyed today a nice Dinner at this Restaurant, that was rekommandier by locals. The waitress at the entrance seemed to be a little confused, as she set us in a table for 4 instead of 5. But after we changed the table, it was all fine! We were served friendly, with great tasting Food. Fish, Pizza and Gnocci, all... More

Went here for the first time with out of town friends who go to La Parolaccia regularly when in town. When I told friends I discovered this great new place, they already knew and had been here several times to enjoy the great food and service as well as the ambiance. We sat right beneath a beautiful huge photo of... More
