Loved it here. We arrived STARVING, having spent the morning walking in Decker Canyon in great heat. What a find this restaurant was. Beautiful location overlooking the beach, great staff and service and truly delicious food. Also very good value.

Had dinner early on a Sunday evening. I ordered the salmon which came with generous portions of mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. All were delicious . My dining companion had the Sesame crusted Tuna, which came with Risotto and roasted vegetables . Also great. View of Zuma beach was great as was the service and value received. Would highly recommend .

As a Malibu resident, we have been going to Spruzzo's for many years and it has become a local favorite. Great outside patio overlooking Zuma Beach. Nice comfortable seating and heaters for those cool Malibu evenings. They have remodeled the inside and it is much more comfortable with a good number of booths. They do have a full bar area. The food is good. I love their angel hair pomodoro, plenty of garlic. My wife loves their asian chicken salad. The focaccia bread is great with oil and vinegar provided at each table. The service is good. The parking can be tough, but patience usually pays off.

Spruzzo is one of our favorite regular spots. We visit Ray and his delightful restaurant and staff at least once a week, and have been regulars for 18 years. Spruzzo cannot be equalled for comfort, great food, friendly personal service, non pretentious atmosphere and a spacious airy interior and the best outdoor deck in Malibu. When we party at home and don't want to cook, Spruzzo delivers nice hot pizzas and other great dishes, promptly and reliably. I have nothing but good things to say about this cheerful place. Any negative reviews one might read are from people who obviously cannot be pleased regardless. Let them go suffer at chain restaurants, we Malibu locals love Spruzzo.

Italian fare, very good. Pizza was really good, as well as a sandwich my daughter ordered. Younger son got spaghetti with meatballs that was really, really good. Excellent ambience, as you can sit outside on an upper balcony, viewing the beach across the street. Great service as well. Overall, I would really recommend this place!
