Westside Italian tonight with a toddler?

mollyomormon Feb 17, 2008 04:26 PM

My brother and his wife are visiting me from Utah and I'd like to take them, along with my 1-year-old niece, out for Italian. Any thoughts for somewhere we'd all be welcome? Thanks in advance!

    Fritto Misto is a lively, great, casual... yummy Italian on Colorado and 6th in Santa Monica. Great homemade pastas and sauces. My fave is the pasta pancetta.

    601 Colorado Ave.

    They get quite busy very fast, so I'd suggest an early dinner if possible!

    Last weekend when I was there with family, there was a large party behind us with 4 young kids in tow. The staff was great and parked their strollers in the office for them.

    Have fun!

      There are always kids at IlForno on OP Blvd. They usually separate kid and non-kid parties into either the East or West rooms.

        fritto misto is a good idea.

        nicer, pecorino and palmeri can both accommodate you.

        obviously avoid pizzicotto because you just wont fit.

          Pastina has been very accomodating to toddlers and the food is good.
