Has a great variety of pasta dishes, but there's little privacy, very uncomfortable seating and often very crowded. There are better places.

Have been meaning to write a review for months for this restaurant. We were here in May 2013 and loved this place. The idea that you can creat your own pasta is fantastic and I wonder why more restaurants don't do this. The food was...More

Small neighborhood place. Very relaxed atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but a great menu of original dishes. I had the pork tenderloin special served with a decadent cream sauce over pasta. Absolutely fabulous. Check it out. Beats a chain restaurant any day. Will definitely be back!

Fritto Misto offers tasty pasta and salads in a no frills atmosphere with inexpensive glasses of wine and...great, quick service. Large dishes (sharable) and small checks mean that there is almost always a wait. In this case, it's worth it! The only downside to me...More

The best part about Fritto Misto is that you can custom order pasta - you can pick the type of pasta, the sauce, and other ingredients. My favorite sauce is the pink sauce, which is a somewhat creamy tomato sauce. Also, the prices are VERY...More

The pasta at Fritto Misto is fresh and very good but the sauces were bland. It could be so much better. I had the green linguini with Roma tomatoes and oil. the tomatoes were barely cooked---cold-- and the pasta very oily. My husband's rigatoni were...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
