We were recently on our way to Los Angeles international Airport and stopped by again to experience the wonderful food and service at Fritto Misto,which we made a special effort to find; it is at the corner of sixth and Colorado in Santa Monica California.

This small Italian restaurant had the feel of a local eatery. I noticed many of the regulars bringing their own wine bottles. Food was very good, especially the sweet potato ravioli. Good service. Energetic, a little bit noisy, but not too much.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
