Great Italian

This is a great little Italian place with incredible food. They have a great selection of entrees covering all Italian options. The meat sauce is probably the best! Worth a visit.

The pasta is cooked perfectly. Without doubt very good food. You won't leave hungry.The porsions was too big. I'm 6.4 and I almost couldn't finish. They'd do better by cutting down the size of the plate. Also wine and spirits are affordable - E.g. 6 $ glass of wine. Enjoyed it!

As usual, picked up a restaurant based on reviews but this time it was a disappointment. After a week in US, we really wanted to have a nice plate of Pasta. We asked the simplest spaghetti, with fresh tomatoes and basil. I know I can't expect the same of what I have back in Italy, but I have been to... More

Great Italian spot if you're looking for straight up authentic Italian food. Nothing too fancy, just delicious large portions that come out fast. We had a great first experience here, and our server was attentive and friendly all night. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

Every time I come here, I get something new -- and it is ALWAYS delicious and fresh. I am a big fan of the Garlic Shrimp, as well as the Pasta Pancetta. Bring a bottle of wine for some cheap corkage fees -- only $2.50/person! You won't regret it. Arrive early because there is often a long wait, especially on... More

As a foreigner, I really wanted to find a good spot for some Italian food. Fritto Misto is worth a try, I most certainly enjoyed my meal there. The service is excellent and they also have a decent wine list. I haven't tried the desserts myself but it looks like it's worth a try as well.

Not fancy but a big menu with lots of interesting choices at a good price point and good portion size. We've only been here once and so only tried a couple of things but they were good and we look forward to returning. They have a small parking lot in back of the restaurant.

Lunch here with foodies one of whom was vegan. No problem. The menu offered many choices. The service was good and the decor is very pleasant. Even when they were busy, they were attentive and no long waits occurred. Much better than many of the trendier Santa Monica restaurants nearby.

Everyone, including my picky teen, had great meals. Big portions, great to share. You can pick your own pasta, sauces and toppings. No waiting at 5.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
