As a Malibu resident, we have been going to Spruzzo's for many years and it has become a local favorite. Great outside patio overlooking Zuma Beach. Nice comfortable seating and heaters for those cool Malibu evenings. They have remodeled the inside and it is much more comfortable with a good number of booths. They do have a full bar area....

Spruzzo is one of our favorite regular spots. We visit Ray and his delightful restaurant and staff at least once a week, and have been regulars for 18 years. Spruzzo cannot be equalled for comfort, great food, friendly personal service, non pretentious atmosphere and a spacious airy interior and the best outdoor deck in Malibu. When we party at home...

Italian fare, very good. Pizza was really good, as well as a sandwich my daughter ordered. Younger son got spaghetti with meatballs that was really, really good. Excellent ambience, as you can sit outside on an upper balcony, viewing the beach across the street. Great service as well. Overall, I would really recommend this place!

Good to be at a place that is very laid back...dogs and happy people enjoying a back porch atmosphere looking at the Pacific! Food is basic beach bar fare! Nothing special, but good! I had the Rubin sandwich. Very average and sparse on kraut! THE VIEW HOWEVER MADE UP FOR IT,

Had the occasion to have dinner last night with my husband at this lovely neighborhood restaurant. We had been to an Italian chain restaurant a few weeks earlier that left much to be desired. I was ready for some good Italian food and I got it at Spruzzo's. The ambiance is lovely, nice bar and a second-floor killer view patio... More

Location, Location, Location! Located on the 2nd. floor of the shopping center across from Zuma Beach at Bush Dr. and PCH, the view from the LARGE PATIO is wonderful. Most tourists don't see or know about this local hang where stars sometimes go to avoid the world and have a great meal. This is an Italian Restaurant but has lots... More

Just came back from renting a place in Malibu. We tried a number of restaurants. Had dinner at this pleasant hangout near Zuma beach. It's on the 2nd floor of a non-descript strip mall, but is surprisingly large, including a large patio. While the service and decor was pleasant, it was understaffed, and our food was just OK, nothing special-pretty... More

Came here with my wife and two young daughters after an afternoon on Zuma beach. The staff were very friendly and seeing we had two small children took their food order first and got it to them really quickly giving us time to decide what we wanted. Really fresh ingredients and very well prepared dishes and we paid less for... More

Great food for a great price. Beautiful views of the beach from the patio. If it gets chilly outside, the staff will bring outdoor heaters over to your table. Overall, great atmosphere and experience!

Fairly casual, across from Zuma Beach. Pretty good food. You can sit outside and watch the traffic go by. The best chopped salad in Malibu.
