Great place, good food, friendly service and good value. BYOB or drink theirs! We even got a free desert for being first timers.

This place is BYOB with a couple dollars corkage fee. The food is very good and the portions are huge. Our waiter was very attentive. I felt a bit rushed by a female employee- she wrapped up our take home packages before my son was done eating but in general, I would recommend this place and go back again.

Great food with really good service. Food come out fast and fresh. Only down side is that the place is not very big and if they have a private party you may have to wait an hour outside in the cold. The food is worth it though.

I've been here and also the Hermosa Beach location a few times and it's always very good. I love the artichoke-stuffed gnocchi...yummm!

Has a great variety of pasta dishes, but there's little privacy, very uncomfortable seating and often very crowded. There are better places.

Have been meaning to write a review for months for this restaurant. We were here in May 2013 and loved this place. The idea that you can creat your own pasta is fantastic and I wonder why more restaurants don't do this. The food was delicious and very resonable. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Small neighborhood place. Very relaxed atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but a great menu of original dishes. I had the pork tenderloin special served with a decadent cream sauce over pasta. Absolutely fabulous. Check it out. Beats a chain restaurant any day. Will definitely be back!

First of all this place is BYOB which is always agreeable with me. Beyond the fact that they let me drink my $4 wine as if it was the finest Italian chianti the food was excellent. The service was also great. I really had no issues with the place I just tend to be a hard grader as far as... More

Fritto Misto is the BEST! Delicious food, friendly service, and great prices! You can't go wrong! Sometimes on weekends, the lines are a little long, but that is only because it's such a great little place! Try the Gorgonzola salad! So yummy that even when our food arrives (which is always quick!) we set it aside to finish our salad!... More

I live in Santa Monica and we go here often. The wine list is very good. One of the owners was born and raised in Napa. He knows his wine and gets great deals and passes them on to his customers. The Food will be what you want it to be…if you order bland…it will be bland. So test your... More
