Passaparola reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Another wonderful meal!

    Dined on 2/22/2013
    We have visited Passaparola many times, and each time is a reminder of what a great place this is. Staff is friendly and there when you want them, perfect amount of attention. 3 specials were offered but I went for the lasagna and that was a great choice. It was creatively served and a generous portion. The bread is so good that we didn't order appetizers, although they looked tempting. The place was full and we were glad we made a reservation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Not a bad place. Good Italian food at a fair price. Unremarkable wine list. Major ding to ambiance points for having big-screen TV looming over the dining room. If I wanted to watch TV, I would have stayed home. Certainly not a romantic restaurant, but a good place for friends to get a meal together.

    Very good Italian cuisine and service at affordable prices. The wine list is not "notable" but has good, affordable selections. Since Passaparola is in a small strip mall off PCH most of us drive right by in ignorance. The interior ambiance works too which in a strip mall the interior atmosphere and slow eaters cuisine is where the emphasis should be.

    The food is very tasty, however My husband and I do not eat meat, chiken or shrimp, so for us were only two chioces - half moon ravioli or tube pasta. I would like to have some vegetarian options in orzo and gnocchi and maybe another pasta dish.

    This was our fist time here-we frequent their other restaurant La Parolaccia quite often and thought we'd give this one a try. The food was great- and they had a very affordable and nice wine list. The TV in the back of the restaurant was a plus, since baseball playoffs were on! We will definitely go back.

    On of our favorite restaurants. Was a little disapointed with Lamb and Lobster Risotto not on the menu anymore but the Veal Chop was the best and they made some Lobster Risotto for my wife any way. Manager helped us pick the perfect birthday bottle of wine for my wife. Overall still one of our favorite restaurants. Javier L. Gonzalez

    The menu includes a number of items that are different than the run of the mill Italian place. Flavors well-balanced. Lots of nuance to the various dishes. Not a big menu but good choices. This place is more classic food. Not pizza and lasagna. Worth a visit.

    Everything was really just OK. We expected more. Prior to ordering our server, Antonette, told us she was being "sent home due to the nature of the evenings reservations" and she introduced our new server, Lisa. It was a Saturday night. Beautifully decorated and an upgrade from the previous restaurants that had been in the location prior to this new place, too bad it wasn't more busy. Salads were fresh, cold and tasty. My pasta with clams was very bland. Everyone else was a bit underwhelmed with their entrees.

    We made a reservation on-line for four. We were seated promptly and had an enjoyable meal. Two in our party had the blackened salmon spelcial and found it a little spicy. I asked for more of the orange glaze that came with it, and, for me, that solved the issue. The bread was great with a dipping sauce or butter on request. Overall, the four of us had a very enjoyable meal and a good bottle of wine. This was our third visit and we will return.

The decor is very cool, very nice interior....the menu looked great, with lots of authentic-looking dishes on it rather than spaghetti, lasagna, and veal + chicken 3 ways...several pasta choices, 2 risottos, and the secondi all looked great....when our food arrived, all the dishes tasted great, portion sizes were just fine...all in all a very nice dinner for the four of us...

    We were happy to see the remodeling of this neighborhood restaurant. Service was fast and very friendly. The arugula and artichoke salad was delicious. Main courses not so much. The seafood pasta special had an array of shellfish which were unpleasantly dominated by the smoked salmon in a white sauce. My veal saltimbocca, a classic dish, had parsley instead of sage and tasted like the veal was boiled in chicken broth. The sides of crispy potatoes and fresh veggies were nicely done. Meals were sent back to kitchen at the table next to us... Not a place for a second visit.

    I've passed this restuarant a number of times but this was my first meal there! I will definitely return and tell others about this excellent food. The portion was perfect, the brushetta was the best I've had in this state. The service was attentive and reasonably fast. My only complaint (and it is tiny) is that we were seated next to the area where they keep utensils/place settings so there was the constant rustle of the utensils being taken out by the wait staff. This place is a great find.

As busy as the place was, we were able to enjoy a great meal without feeling rushed or crowded in. Food was as good as Spaghettini and we didn't have to listen to some lame cover band while we ate. Calamari was delicious. We'll be back.

Open restaurant and noise level a little high but on a normal day this would be ok. Great food and I liked the limited menu on valentines day because I do not like making too many choices. It was a great dining experience and for the price well worth the money.

    We went on a Saturday night and the place was packed. I highly suggest making reservations on weekends. My husband and I had the spinach salad which was very very good. I had the lobster ravioli which was to die for. My husband had the meat ravioli which was excellent. Nice wine list too. We shared a bottle of the Axis Chardonnay which was a wonderful adddition to our meal. The Tirimasu was out of this world. All in all our experience was great. We will certainly come back again!
