We felt immediately welcomed right when we walked through the door! The food was INCREDIBLE and so affordable!! At the end of our meal the whole staff even said goodbye as we left! Amazing place!

Fritto Misto is a solid local neighborhood gem, which are getting fewer and fewer as Santa Monica continues to get over-developed. Quality food, good prices, and nice environment. You won't go wrong here!

My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Fritto Misto last week. The food was delicious, the service terrific and a great value. The restaurant does get very crowded, so make reservations and get there early.

Had a nice dinner with my sons over here. Although the location seems not to be top notch the service, the great choice and the quality of food is. Be in time cause when we left there was a increasing waiting line.

Just extremely good and surprisingly inexpensive. Only a few blocks off the 3rd street promenade and very unlikely you could find as good Italian food on the promenade or anywhere else. Staff is very nice and attentive.

Loved the pasta. Nice little wine list. Friendly service. This place sticks out in my mind as the best "bang for buck" restaurants that I have eaten in anywhere, and will be on my return list every time I go to LA. I would write...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
