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

My friends and I were traveling and both on different sides of town. In order to meet in the middle I went on to Trip Advisor and found this restaurant. When they returned my call for a reservation I heard an Italian accent and expected it was a family restaurant. We both arrived close to our scheduled appointment, were immediately... More

"It could'a been a contender" is a phrase I use when something in an otherwise good experience turns the whole event Sour. In this case it was the service. We were just passing by and decided to eat because we like Pizza. . . I don't think we will go back. The restaurant was not busy and we had to... More

Found out this place has accurate reviews and a loyal local following. Broadway is a great spot to eat and avoid drunks and tourists, great food, priced right and wonderful staff. We didn't want to leave!

Despite a not very impressive exterior, this place is amazing! From the moment we walked in the staff greeted us, 'Buonasera' and not in a coached way- but like you were walking into the local family restaurant in Italy. Super attentive and helpful in picking out what to each- the waitress was able to answer fairly detailed questions about the... More
