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. I decided on La Paolaccia because the food and service has always been very good. On this occasion however the service was poor and some... More

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.

We don't go out on a regular basis, as we enjoy dining at home, however... This place is only a few blocks away and always has a table available. Even the bar is a great seat. The staff are all very informative and happy and the food... Every dish we have had there from the apps to dessert is EXCELLENT.

La Parolaccia Osteria Italiana is my husband and my "go-to" place for "special" and plain old "let's go out for dinner" occasions. Why? Simply because the food is delicious and the atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Stefano and staff are like a big family (some of them are his family) and they treat you like you are family too.
