Agree with others here that the food is just average. This place is more "California-Italian" in style and although you can tell ingredients are fresh, it's just bland and tasteless. I'll take a real marinara or arrabiata anywhere else.

It's hard to pick a favorite. Everything is good. Best service. We are going to become regulars.

This place was one of the best for food and value...UNITL NOW! Prices went up about $1.50 to $2.00 since last time. Just another trendy overpriced Santa Monica eatery now. Too bad...Good deals never last on the westside. Food is still very good though.

Places like this are on of the reasons I love living in So Cal - great, fresh food, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices. The wine list is small but changes often and is always interesting and CHEAP! - Ived paid TWICE as much at other restaurants for some of the same wines. Favorites: fried calamari, greens and gorgonzola salad, Jumbo Rav, fresh fish over pasta specials, Spicy Shrimp Rav. Have been eating here for years and they always remember my name! Have also eaten at Hermosa Beach location as its just as good

I'd take a sloppy Bronx red sauce joint over this place any day... Everything on the menu is oversauced, overportioned, and generally lacks any fidelity to the "Italian" food from which it sources. It even gives "Italian-American" food a bad name. An obvious overture to the town that birthed it, at Fritto Misto you will find red meat nowhere on the printed menu, appearing only in the occasional special. It's replaced by turkey or chicken in dishes where it would normally be required. What... No osso? Braesola? fuggedaboutit.

I love ravioli, especially when it's a little unusual, they have a spicy shrimp in garlic sauce with little chunks of charred chicken on top. the service can get overwhelmed. the art in the back room has been very nice at points. In general go with the specials or pasta. and the omelet for breakfast skip it. its sauce in omelet shell. if you come in early on weekends you can get all you can eat calamari and salad (and i dont normally touch calamari outside of greece/cyprus) and sometimes a complimentary dessert.
