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

Only a few blocks from 3rd Street Promenade is a great Italian restaurant with huge portions. We were part of a rather large party but were able to try many dishes because of it. My turkey lasagna with meat sauce was terrific and so large, I shared with 2 others and still had leftovers. My wife's sweet potato ravioli with... More

Smells good when you go inside. Fritto misto was tasty but could have been a little crispier. The tiramisu is delicious. Pastas were in general overcooked and the sauces taste like they came from the can except for a little doctoring up. The portions are huge. You will definitely have enough leftover for another meal. It's not a place I... More
