Decided to end our self- imposed abstention from Rosti tonight. Bad decision, as once again the food was awful (penne for me; spaghetti for my wife). Something has really gone South with this restaurant. Do yourself a favor, stay away. I know I will.

I have been going here for years and I am a big fan. I LOVE ALL the pasta here and the Caesar salad with pine nuts is fantastic!

Limited menu but excellent choices. Some innovative sandwiches and entrees. Service a tad slow but worth the wait. Visited twice, would go again, no issues.

Rosti Santa Monica is one of the few affordable, family-friendly options on Montana Avenue. They have a lot of indoor and outdoor seating, so it's perfect for small groups and families. My favorites include the arugula pizza, caprese salad and flatbread.

My favorite continues to be some of the deli items. My last visit I enjoyed an Eggplant side with a salad which were prepared just right.

My friend and I are both gluten intolerant, so when we were visiting Santa Monica we were excited to try Rosti. It is in a great location. I love the area & wish the other shops would have been open. We were quickly seated when...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
