Misto is a great restaurant. The only problem is that the location is in the back of a dying strip mall type plaza. Food items are good and it is a lunchtime favorite for business meetings. 2 small seating areas make for a quaint atmosphere.

Used to go here many years ago and tried it on a whim for lunch. Just ordered salads as we felt that they really didn't have fresh blue crab or BBQ beef that wasn't pre-made by a company. I ordered southwestern chicken salad but was told no jicama. There is a grocery store about 1/2 mile away that someone should... More

Having lived in the South Bay area of Los Angeles for over 30 years, I thought I should review some restaurants we always go to. Our number one go-to restaurant is Misto, usually on a Friday evening. Casual, charming, great wait staff, and some truly stellar menu items that remain favorites since the restaurant opened what seems like 20 years... More

This place is tucked away within some trendy shops in South Torrance as you go up the hill into Palos Verdes. The food is great, reasonable prices and very good service. There's always a special game to play while you wait for your order to be served. They give you a word scramble of about 8-10 letters. If you figure... More

Misto is one of my favorite restaurants. I go there often, as I live nearby, and am never disappointed. The staff is competent and friendly, the restaurant is neat and clean. There is sometimes a wait on weekends, but usually it is manageable. And on top of all of this, the food is amazing! My favorites are the Asian Potsitckers... More

Everything from salads to sandwiches, pasta to steak, tacos to hamburgers. Lots of choices always fresh. Daily specials. Great bakery with yummy choices. Service is very good. You can eat out on the patio but inside is rustic and comfortable. It is not a wallet buster either for what you get!
