Loved this place! Food was delicious had caprese, pasta with goat cheese, sundried tomato, broccoli. Salad very tasty. Generous portions, reasonable price. Staff doesn’t stop moving, everyone pitches in. Flourless choc cake at end was amazing.

Parking meters close by. Very busy restaurant but only waited 10mins to be seated. Excellent hospitality and service. Food was very tasty, with large portions, lots of bread given with drink top-ups. Toilets one of the best we have seen on our holiday so far....More

We ate here last week while vacationing in Santa Monica. The food was exceptional but it is a very small restaurant with close seating and it was packed! Virtually impossible to hold a conversation across the table. We ordered the chicken stuffed ravioli and a...More

When we moved to stainless-steel and glass Southern California we despaired of ever finding an informal and welcoming Italian that felt like those we knew in NYC and Hoboken. Then just around the corner we found Fritto Misto. It took us a while to find...More

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
