Been here many times and the food is always consistent & very good! The service is prompt and professional. Love their carpaccio!! We like that the owner is always around to oversee the quality of dishes! On weekends, it's necessary to make reservations.

I came here with my family and everybody love it. The food and atmosphere were just like a classic Tuscan Osteria. The food was beyond amazing. The sauces taste like they have been slow cooking all day. The pizza was thin crust with lots of mozzarella cooked in a wood burning oven, the spaghetti with meatballs (it had a different... More

This is one of our fav Italian restaurants! Consistently good food and service. Love the bread with the roasted pepper dip. Always a good and reasonably priced red wine to chooses from.

Recently reserved a table for 10 for a birthday party at La Paolaccia. We have been going to La Parolaccia since it opened in the one room which is currently the bar / dining area.

If I lived in the Long Beach area I'd stop in here many times a week! Food was great. Service impeccable and friendly. Fun atmosphere, busy but not pressured. I look forward to return visits!

This is our favorite local Italian restaurant. They serve authentic Roman meals, well, as close as you can get in Long Beach. We went to their wine dinner paired with Antinori wines. It was all good. The food, the wine, the service and atmosphere were very enjoyable. Simple, quality food prepared well is a perfect combination you wish all restaurants... More

Impressive daily specials. The pasta is made fresh. Served hot, made to order. We tried a vodka sauce and an Alfredo sauce. Both were excellent. The staff was conscientious of service and asked if we would like our meal served right away or if we wanted a more leisurely dinner service to finish salad and appetizers first.

Thank cariL44
