Excellent food and service. Had a memorable evening with my love.
Definitely a throw-back to old style Italian restaurants. Serving staff are well dressed but a bit talkative with the bartender, when there are few clients. We ordered calamari for an appetizer, since that is our favorite. It was cooked perfectly...light and flavorful. My wife had the sea bass which was exceptional. I had a dish I could not pronounce, but looked like giant ravioli stuffed with spinach with a vodka type sauce. Very good. They give you about a dozen little pieces of bread right out of the oven. The bread was perfect to sop up the sauce. Good desert menu, but I just wanted spumoni ice cream, but they only had spumoni cake.
We had an amazing night/ dinner at Rumari! The food was amazing the waiter was amazing the service was amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better night! Thank You Rumari we will be back to see you soon.
Intimate setting, outstanding service. He was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable but not disruptive to conversation. The seafood was excellent Highly recommend
Joaquin was an absolute fantastic waiter and the food here is some of the best Italian I’ve ever had. We were in Laguna celebrating my dads 70th Birthday and this dining experience was the cherry on top of a great weekend. Not only was the food AMAZING but so was the service.
We enjoy our dinner!
Quiet , clean , great food and great service
My daughter and I were starting in Laguna overnight and enjoyed our meal. The service was amazing and we had a vet nice view of the ocean from the table. I had some of the best lobster ravioli and my daughter had a special plate of shrimp. Their bread is amazing and we left very full! I would definitely return for another meal.
Family dinner just delightful
Veal was tender....sauce perfect. Lobster raviolis in saffron sauce....delish! Just wish there were more on the plate.
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!
