Stopping for a bite to eat in the middle of the day, I knew what I was having for dinner! The portions are enormous and delicious and an excellent choice for a repeat later in the evening. I had the shrimp with black and white pasta and my friend had the atomic pasta. I've been here before and and I... More

A little bit hard to find, this truly IS a "out of the way neighborhood" restaurants,as it is not on a busy thoroughfare. This adds to its sweet, comfortable atmosphere. And the FOOD? Really, really delicious: imaginative ingredient combinations, large quantities (no nouveau Californian bird- peckin' food here) and delicious wines, all served by a pleasant staffer. Menu recommendations were... More

We than TripAdvisor for pointing us in the direction of Fritto Misto. We were worried that as the roads outside were closed due to roadworks, it would be too, but thankfully it was still open. We were seated immediately and chose a great Pinot Grigio for $15.50. I had the Italian Sausage Lasagne with the famous "pink" sauce. What a... More

Enjoyed a wonderful Italian dinner with a friend. The location is a shirt walk from the pier and downtown Santa Monica in a quiet neighborhood. The place was packed on a Sunday night. The food was delicious -- create your own pasta dish and their signature creations were a hit. What stood out was the service -- our waiter was... More

We felt immediately welcomed right when we walked through the door! The food was INCREDIBLE and so affordable!! At the end of our meal the whole staff even said goodbye as we left! Amazing place!

Fritto Misto is a solid local neighborhood gem, which are getting fewer and fewer as Santa Monica continues to get over-developed. Quality food, good prices, and nice environment. You won't go wrong here!

My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Fritto Misto last week. The food was delicious, the service terrific and a great value. The restaurant does get very crowded, so make reservations and get there early.

Had a nice dinner with my sons over here. Although the location seems not to be top notch the service, the great choice and the quality of food is. Be in time cause when we left there was a increasing waiting line.

Just extremely good and surprisingly inexpensive. Only a few blocks off the 3rd street promenade and very unlikely you could find as good Italian food on the promenade or anywhere else. Staff is very nice and attentive.

I have a friend who lives in Washington and whenever she visits me in Santa Monica she always asks if we can go to "that yummy Italian place" again. That's Fritto Misto (and she's not the only one who wants to go back). Fritto's been in business for over 25 years and has succeeded because it has a simple formula:... More
