I started eating here with my in-laws many years ago and regularly have Saturday brunch here. After a few visits you can easily become friends with the staff and owner. The fish tacos are my current go-to meal. It was tough to change from eating the breakfast offerings here - they are all So Good!

Meet my friend for a birthday lunch at a favorite place today for lunch. She had a chicken and pear salad with lite dressing. I had the fish tacos with a small salad and green rice. Food is fresh, well plated and taste wonderful. They brought her a lemon tart with powdered sugar and whip cream toped with a candle.... More

Lunch with a friend at Misto's was a very nice experience. The waitress was attentive and the food good with plenty of choices on the menu. Most tables were full, another good sign. I had driven by many times and glad I finally stopped in. There was a local coupon mailed to me which was another incentive to make a... More

I had lunch with six other friends. We meet monthly at a different restaurant in our area. The waiter was very attentive and friendly and cheerfully waited on our party of seven. He checked on us several times during our lunch to see if needed anything. Our food was prepared promptly and we all agreed that we would like to... More

We stopped in to this restaurant for a simple dinner after a movie at the PV Library. It was tucked away in the Hillside village and at first we were not sure it was open...but then we were early. We loved the options on the menu and all the prices were under $20, so we hoped the food was as... More

Since the recent remodel, the quality of the food seems to have stepped back a notch. The Angel Hair Pasta was more like spaghettini. I ordered the entrée with Prawns (more like medium-size shrimp with tails). Although it was stated that in light tomato sauce, it was drenched. I have had this entrée before and it was excellent. The service... More

Misto is a perfect local restaurant. They always have a special. Their food is always delicious. There are many options. Service is always great. Always given the chance to win a free dessert by doing the word scramble. Love that we always figure out the word and enjoy the desert. All the food is good here from the quesadillas to... More

The delicious food and gracious service were a wonderful surprise considering this restaurant is hidden in the back of a small strip mall off a busy hillside thoroughfare. We arrived early (before the posted "open" hour) but were still welcomed warmly by the staff. In addition to the good, hot coffee, we enjoyed the complimentary assortment of baked goods. Our...
