As people might know, my boyfriend Chad and I travel for work and enjoy visiting little restaurants like these. Fritto Misto is a place to visit! The staff is very attentive, the food is well prepared with their own sauces and the price is worth the amount of food. If you're looking to have a quiet, great italian meal, come... More

Dropped in unannounced. Luckily got a table straight away in what was a very busy restaurant. We ordered a bottle of Chianti and pondered the menu. A neat touch is being able to customise your own pasta - any sauce or pasta type The adults settled on Jumbo Ravioli (super tasty) and Garlic Shrimp Pasta. Proper homemade feel to it... More

After a long day out and about we did not feel up to dressing up for dinner or fighting the crowd. We thought about ordering from the hotel but the reviews made me wary. My cousin had recommended Fritto Misto. Saw that they offered take out. It was a GREAT meal. I had the shrimp and artichoke gnocchi with a... More

Wow! I saw the reviews for this place and since I had my kids with me, I decided to give it a shot. The food is fantastic and might be one of my favorite restaurants of all time. We kept coming back during our vacation. Great atmosphere, perfect for families or couples; very quaint and cozy. The food is phenomenal... More

I love Italian food but often find the pasta is too "heavy". But this is not the case in Fritto Misto. When I taste Garlic Shrimp Pasta, I get the right taste and I am very satisfied.

Went at Christmas with the kids. the dishes size is very big, but we ate in better places. The pasta was a bit over cooked and the Red sauce was average. The bread was hot and tasty. The service was excellent,

Amazing food, huge portions and very reasonable prices. We were pointed in the direction of this place by a guy on 3rd street promenade who worked for the city of Santa Monica. We never would have found it if he hadn't recommended it and it was by far the best place we ate on our trip.

Fritto Misto is a gem in Santa Monica. Don't be fooled by the rougher outside of the building the food and service deliver. You can build your own pasta for a cheap price and the portions are a good size. They allow you to bring your own wine and charge $2.50 per each person.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
