So happy to hear you've been a fan of our pizza and pasta! We do like to foster a fun, relaxed atmosphere, so it's true that it can get a bit noisy during peak hours, but I hope that this hasn't detracted too much from your visits. We also offer pick-up and delivery options if you're ever looking to enjoy... More

I don't understand why some people love this place. It's just OK. The food is nothing amazing, especially not for the price. The atmosphere inside is a little off putting, as it feels like the whole place needs a good scrubbing to get the grease feeling out. Overall, just OK. I would really only go back if someone else was... More

My husband and I sat outside on the patio on a beautiful sunny day. We had lunch with a view of the ocean and palm trees. My beet and goat cheese salad was very good with a light dressing. The focaccia bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was fresh and welcome. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos. Service... More

We hit Spruzzo's for lunch after lobstering up on Zuma beach and realising there was nothing but seagulls to eat near the beach. Spruzzo's sits atop a shopping centre nearby Zuma - you could miss it if you had your corvette in the wrong gear heading north. We headed upstairs and got a tall table with ocean views. After checking... More

Had dinner early on a Sunday evening. I ordered the salmon which came with generous portions of mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. All were delicious . My dining companion had the Sesame crusted Tuna, which came with Risotto and roasted vegetables . Also great. View of Zuma beach was great as was the service and value received.

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!
