To be honest I can't really compare this place to any other Italian restaurant in Santa Monica because I don't even want to try the others. This place has such great food, friendly service, and reasonable prices that I keep coming back

I just moved to Santa Monica and this place is down the street from my apartment. I could not be more excited to have a restaurant near by. The food was fabulous and our waitress was so attentive. I wasn't sure which wine I would prefer

Pros: Size of dish, calamari

Cons: Bland sauce

The service is friendly, if a bit slow. The restaurant is crowded and a loud and the chairs are a bit small. Your loaded dish of pasta is large, more than enough. Plan on bringing some home. A decent price for the amount of food. Parking is limited.

You can't beat this for a crowd pleaser -- lots of choices and tasty dishes. The mix-and-match pasta dishes means even the pickiest in your group will find something they like. The wait can be killer.

I love Fritto Misto. The greens and gorgonzola salad is to die for. They do many creative things with pasta without sacrificing taste. They also have lo carb and lo cal alternatives. The service is always great and the bread is hot out

Fritto Misto is an excellent Italian restaurant with great food and wonderful service. The servers are very nice and helpful. No matter what day of the week it is there is always a line and if you try it for yourself you'll know why.

I stumbled upon this place one night and have been back 3 or 4 times since. It's so nice to find a "normal" restaurant in LA. It's not trendy. The food has always been very tasty. The prices are very reasonable (particularly in LA).

The place has almost a deli feel to it. It's good food but not pretentious or anything; the sort of place you could eat dinner in a tshirt and shorts. They make their own pasta and their choose-your-own pasta selections are awesome!

Fritto Misto is a great local place to get some Italian flavor. They offers big portions of pasta where you can add your own sauces, great minestrone soup and tasty chicken salad. First timers can score a free dessert if you ask. There's also a special on Saturdays with all you can eat calamari.

PROS: Very tasty and inexpensive
CONS: Packed for dinner

The idea behind Fritto Misto is to offer guests multiple varieties of fresh homemade pasta and ingredients and then allow you to build your own pasta dish. Over the past couple of years I have constructed some great combos. For the less adventurous they offer a menu of standard pasta dishes which are all good. The atmosphere is nothing fancy but it works. I usually get take out so I don't have to worry about getting a seat at peak hours. A great place to take both kids and people who like high quality inexpensive Italian.

PROS: Fresh Delicious Inexpensive Italian
CONS: Wooden chairs - not the most comfortable
