THis is a fantastic place in Santa Monica. It is basically a build your own pasta place but the selections are amazing. They have other stuff as well, but this is a huge part of the menu. Everything we had was delicious and well prepared. The service was excellent as well. Just as a FYI, you are about a 15-20... More

After a day in Venice we decided to visit Santa Monica Pier and stopped in here for an early dinner (6pm). The place was already buzzing with a few people waiting on seats outside. Our host told us 10 minutes and he would have a table for us. We were seated within 5 mins ! The table service was quick... More

A group of long time friends took the new Expo Line from west LA to Santa Monica. We decided to eat before walking around the Third Street Promenade. Fritto Misto is a short block from the final stop on the Expo. Fritto Misto is a long time favorite of my friends, I regret for leaving this part of the state... More

We are on holiday in Santa Monica from Uk and saw this restaurant reviewed on Tripadvisor so decided to visit. It was a Saturday evening and we had not booked so we waited outside for around 30 mins for a table. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and there was a great atmosphere. The food was reasonably priced... More

I can't always eat cream sauce, but the one served here was excellent. Not to rich or heavy. The chicken dish with the pasta was tasty!

Being out with 4 children is always a bit of struggle due to many conflicting preferences and money. At misto, the children can compose their own dishes and the adults could enjoy generuous portions with vegetarian options. At a price that anyone can afford. Very friendly staff too!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
