How can one begin to describe the mouthwatering salad? Yes, I said it...this place is so good even the salad is mouthwatering. La Parolaccia has a lovely rustic atmosphere with a lot of Italian accents, large brick oven for fantastic authentic pizzas, and the most delicious sauces. My husband and I have added a new favorite to our list of... More

Neat little restaurant with a great menu and wine list. Would like to see more beer choices, but the food was excellent as was the wine

Often drop in here for a pizza or some pasta after a cocktail on a Friday evening. This place is a bit old style but they serve an excellent pizza. The menu has slimmed down somewhat but it's got just about enough choice. Expect to get away at about $30 per person without wine. We keep coming back so that's... More

We are moving from the Long Beach area and we wanted to go once more to our favorite restaurant. We each got our own pizza and shared a bottle of Montepulciano. We had the artichokes as an antipasti. The best, even better than most places in Rome. We love the Roman thin crust. Next week we are in Italy!

La Parolaccia is our favorite Italian restaurant (among many!) in the Long Beach area. We eat here often and have never been disappointed. Salads are varied and fresh. Pasta dishes are all delicious and prepared perfectly. And the pizzas are the authentic Italian, thin crust, brick oven pizza -- the best around! Service is friendly and attentive and if you...

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
