Went there with my wife and baby. I had the jumbo ravioli and my wife the chicken masala. The food and service was excellent. The server even shouted us the flourless chocolate cake as it was our first time in Santa Monica and the very first restaurant we dined at. Highly recommend this place

Solid Italian food. A bit pricey but the quantity makes up for it. The bread is also supper addictive in this comfort food way.

Fritto Misto is one of my go-to cafes in Santa Monica. My favorite dish is the Cajun seared chicken which together with the other pasta specialties make this place a unique California/Italian dining experience.

some of the best italian food, ever. bad thing is that they do not accept reservations so there is always a line, but no matter how long it is , it is definitely worth the wait! the calamari appetizer is the best I've had anywhere, and all of the pastas are made fresh! Actually thinking of when I can go again as I type this up...

Wait time can be long! They have a another location in hermosa which usually isn't as crowded. What's makes this place so good is that they have good food and average prices, which in santa monica is hard to find. Delicious fresh bread, but some dishes are hit and miss. Definitely worth checking out.

The short version? Solid pasta, good prices, but long waits, and they might seat people in preferred, rather than priority, order. I came with my sis and cousin several months back, while still in one of my Italian food craving phases. After waiting close to an hour in the cold, and having had another party who showed up after us, without reservations, seated first they seemed to know the owner, we finally got our table and ordered their Pasta New Orleans, Jumbo Ravioli, and Atomic Pasta. Normally I'd review each individual dish, but given that they were all somewhat similar cream-based dishes, that seems a little unnecessary. And, okay, fine, you got me, I don't really remember the little particulars anymore. But! Great flavor all around, with my favorites being the ravioli and atomic pasta, and the New Orleans coming in close afterwards. And while I've never been a huge fan of al dente pasta, that's more a personal preference than a mark against them. That said, the two pastas we ordered were thicker, so the al dente texture was definitely much more noticeable than say, with linguine or spaghetti. Would I come back? Maybe, if I had a better sense of when the waits aren't so awful. No food is worth that long a wait, especially not when I'm on vacation! ***Accessibility Info*** Venue - A mid-sized venue, but a very cramped one, at that. Tables and seats are arranged fairly close together, and given that the place seems to be packed most of the time, getting to your table requires a bit of finesse and a lot of pardons. Bathroom - Didn't try them, so no comment.
