This is an amazing restaurant, we love it here. amazing food, great wait staff and hostess. Can't go wrong here.
This was our first time at Ristorante Rumari. We were delighted from the moment we entered until we left. The food was exceptional as well as the service. We will definitely be back.
Old-school Italian restaurant, Martine is a delightful server, everyone working there is happy.
The cuisine is amazing, everything was top-notch, best lasagna I have ever been served.
Our server (Fiorna? from Argentina) was outstanding. Very friendly and on top of things. The carbonara is out-of-this-world delicious.
Wonderful food! Would go back in a heartbeat!
We haven’t been here in a while. But, it’s always good. The gnocchi is simply amazing. I’m not thrilled with their regular gnocchi dish. But, their ‘gnocchi special’ was great. The staff & service are excellent. The ambiance is that of a ‘local, family-run Italian restaurant’ - a nice change from the ‘over-the-top restaurants’ in Laguna Beach. The wine selection is adequate (better bottles than wines by the glass). This place is a great choice for a local Italian place.
Rumari’s is like being in Italy
Friendly kind thoughtful people
Very nice atmosphere with a friendly wait staff that was attentive. The bar was full and we were seated about 8 feet from it so yes it was loud but to be expected. Food was very good! And our waitress saw it was mu husbands birthday we were celebrating so she brought two scoops of delicious ice cream!
Great atmosphere, service and amazing food. Highly recommended.
I have been coming here for 10 years +. They never disappoint. Great atmosphere in Laguna Beach. I can’t have the meals they offer anywhere else. Does not compare.
I always bring visitors here. Best Italian food in OC
Well, we go to this restaurant all the time. This time, per usual, I ordered my chicken parmigiana without cheese. So, it came with the cheese on(I am allergic). So, of course I send it back. 2 minutes later, a new one is brought out to me. Completely under cooked almost raw. Naturally, I send it back. So, finally I get the same one back cooked.
Bill time came. There was no offer to deduct the dish or anything accommodation at all.
They just lost a regular customer. We would go their at least twice a month.
Food was awesome and our server was great!
The food and service was fantastic!
Great food and great place. Been going for years. I used to live across the street. Valentine’s Day was tough tho for them when it came to scheduling. Their staff was awesome but it took 45+ minutes AFTER our dinner reservation to be seated. Many factors could have been involved for the delays (weather, patrons extending their stay...). We had fast service at the table but the wait dampened the evening mood. Luckily we didn’t have later plans but it could have made things difficult for other couples that may have.
Overboooked valentines dinner
The food and service are superb. Best Italian food in Orange County.
I really like to come here because it's small and quiet. The food is outstanding too. I had the pounded and lightly breaded swordfish which was served with vegetables and potatoes . All the house wines by the glass are $10 and a nice size pour. Several choices. There are also premium wines by the glass. My husband and I like to bring guests here because it's easy to hold a conversation which is hard to do at most Laguna restaurants. Highly recommend.
Great service, great food, smokin hot date! Winning!
Food and service are splendid. I try to go once a week. Just excellent.
Wonderful place...great food.
Food was good, love the waiter, probably didnt have enough coverage for the crowd, but enjoyable.
I waited over half an hour and had to get up and ask for wine
Despite many great meals, this night was a disaster on so many levels
We love coming there. Fiore is our favorite server! She is like family. So delightful! Food is consistent and good
Reservations made weeks in advance for 7 pm and arrived on time.
We were informed that it would be at least 20 minute wait and could sit and eat at the bar.
We did that and the food was great but being unable to meet the expectations of reservations was not good
As always a wonderful experience!
Average Italian. Wouldn’t return.
Rumari was great! Food made from scratch and large portions. Excellent service. Noisy but not unbearable. We'll be back!
Good food will return
Love this restaurant. We live close by and eat here frequently - it never disappoints. Everyone in our party loved their food, pasta, fish and salads at this dinner. We’ll be back soon and highly recommend Rumari for a great meal.
Best there is
Truly one of my favorite restaurants in Laguna Beach. Food is always delicious, wait staff is attentive and ambiance charming.
Love this restaurant!!!!!
first time here to celebrate our anniversary and my wife and I love it! the food, the service and the environment is superb! Our server Scott is very nice. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.
My friend and I both had Linguine e Vongole. (Linguine with Clams) There were plenty of clams and the sauce was very flavorful. The pasta was cooked perfectly, al dente. We also had a Caesar Salad. The dressing did not taste fishy like some Caesar dressings and the lettuce was very fresh. Thank you for another excellent Italian meal.
Great Italian Restaurant with the Homemade touch. Excellent Menu with nightly Chef Specials. Our Waiter assisted my wife's decision as she was trying to pick between the Sea Bass special and Homemade Ravioli and accommodated her by giving her a half order of each. I had the Sword Fish Special and it was suburb. Rumari's has been a Family Italian Restaurant in Laguna Beach over 28 years and I can see why. Great Food and Bar and know we will be abck.
Everything was excellent . Food, service, and price. We would definitely go back. Exceptional restaurant.
Rumari is arguably the best restaurant in Laguna and definitely one of the top Italian restaurants in OC. From the appetizers through the desserts, the food is always delicious and Amazing!! The chef is always very accommodating to special requests. Martin and Fiore are wonderful servers -- very friendly and attentive -- they are true professionals. We have regularly been eating there for 7 years and Rumari never disappoints. If you are in Laguna Beach, it is a must!!
