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

Lots of uppity spots in Santa Monica this is not one of them. It is very unassuming and casual spot. We went there for lunch on a quite Sunday. They have specials every day of the week. Surrounding very stark nothing fancy but the specials we ordered were great. I had an artichoke pasta that was was tge winner served... More

Loved the pasta. Nice little wine list. Friendly service. This place sticks out in my mind as the best "bang for buck" restaurants that I have eaten in anywhere, and will be on my return list every time I go to LA. I would write the same review of their Hermosa Beach location as well.

My family and I had gone to this place once before, during our trip to Santa Monica last year, but I didn't use trip advisor back then. It was so great last year we decided to go again this year. From the moment you walk near it you notice it is extremely busy all he time. No fear however! All... More

This is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant that's pretty well known by the reviews I've read. Yet, the food is very good, fairly priced and well portioned. I recall a wine special. That may have been a temporary deal, but ask about it anyway. It is a bit of a walk from the Third Street Promenade, but do-able if the... More

From the time of entering you feel welcomed! My friend and I had the pleasure of being served by Erica! She was absolutely amazing! She knew the menu like the back of her palm and stood patiently assisting us with all of our questions. You can tell she is very genuine and simply has great customer skills which I admire... More

My Wife and I were recently visiting the LA area. We heard about this place from a fellow concert-goer as we were heading to Steve Miller Band and Journey at the Hollywood Bowl on 5/16. We ended up at Fritto Misto on Saturday and Sunday evenings and we visited their Hermosa Beach location on the following Saturday night before heading... More
