We came here with our adult children and we all enjoyed it very much! The prices were very reasonable, the menu was extensive. We ordered the Firtto Misto sampler appetizer and it was very good. We each ordered pasta. Everyone liked what they received, I ordered the New Mexico Chili Linguini and I have to say it didn't have much... More

This place always has a line on Friday and Saturday nights. Because it's awesome! Either go earlier or later, or bring a group of six or more to make reservations if you don't want to wait in line, but it's completely worth it if you do. The food is excellent in quality (my friends always order the lobster ravioli when... More

After reading the amazing reviews we decided to have give our "usual" Italian a rest and try something new. I love artichoke but I thought of asking the waitress if it was fresh and she said "we don't make the ravioli here and the artichoke hearts are canned". Ugh pass! Since lots of people raved about the Pasta New Orleans... More

Took our family to this restaurant while on vacation and my kids loved creating their own pasta dishes. The food was outstanding and you can't beat the price. The atmosphere was laid back but the place was very busy tonight. We were told to get to restaurant by 6.45 pm and we would be able to get a large party... More

Was visiting Santa Monica and was looking for an Italian Restaurant. This small store front doesn't look impressive but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. It's a very young crowd with BYOB policy though they also have wine to purchase. Parking was limited and we needed to wait for a table but it was worth it.

Great food, Great Service, fun and energetic atmosphere,! Also, if you are a vegetrarian this is a great spot to try with a vegetarian section of the menu featuring many choices! You don't want to miss this place. One more bonus, the pricing is fantastic!

When Fritto Misto was recommended to me by a friend as a great place for my birthday dinner, I will admit that I was expecting something a bit fancier. But it was the perfect spot for a fun dinner - local atmosphere, great food, friendly service. It is not on the beaten path - located just a few blocks from... More

While visiting the Santa Monica area, we decided that we would try something new, so we let TripAdvisor take control. My family and I were all craving good, hearty pasta dishes. We had not eaten all day pretty much, and we needed something to fill up our bellies. So we just so happened to find Fritto Misto on TripAdvisor, so... More

After reviewing the restaurant recommendations on Trip Advisor, my business partner and I decided to give this restaurant a try. The staff was extremely friendly and spent considerable time with us explaining the menu. We both took her suggestion and ordered the jumbo pasta. Absolutely out of this world terrific is the only thing I can say. I would suggest... More

Just ate here based on Trip Advisor reviews and they proved correct. Ordered two lunch specials for $8.50 each and they were both amazing. Fast service, super clean & friendly. They even gave us a surprise dessert in honor of it being our first visit to their restaurant. I'm from Ventura & this will now be my "go-to" restaurant in... More

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.
