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!!
Ristorante Rumari never disappoints. The food is delicious, and the staff is on top of everything. They make excellent suggestions to compliment the entirety of the nights meal. Food is delicious and the wines are excellent. We enjoy coming hear regularly!
Celebrating years of friendship with my friends. I ordered sea bass. No way was it sea bass. The sauce was not good either. Way too spicy. Service was horrendous. Either the waiter was over booked with tables or the bus service didn’t back him up. We had to ask for water and refills too many times to count. It took forever to get dishes cleared on our cramped table. I witnessed another patron complaining about her meal at the table next to us. It was a fish dish too. The waiter refused to return it to the kitchen. I will not be coming back here. I’ll let the Surf and Sand know to stop recommending this restaurant.
Food was excellent and service by Nick and the entire team was outstanding. The arrabbiata sauce was the best ever and the tuna was some of the best we have ever had! Can not wait to come back!
Every time we have been there they have the main dining area reserved for a function. It makes for a very noisy time unless you sit outside.
Amazing food amazing service
Everyone here treats you like family. Great service, amazing food, home like atmosphere.
bar could be better, no cocktail list. wait staff could be more polished, decor could be more updated. Food is out of this world!!
One of my go-to restaurants for Italian. It's a small, family-run place with family recipes.
Ristorante Rumari always has delicious, fresh food. I would highly recommend the calamari appetizer and the lobster raviolis. I've never been disappointed in my meal here.
Great, our server was very friendly and made our night much more fun.
A long time neighborhood favorite. Great for tourists during the season and wonderful for locals all the time. Authentic Sicilian and Southern Italian fare. No problem for those with special requests. Owner Vince Crivello is always on hand to mingle with his guests, greet the regulars, welcome the first-timers and ensure the best experience for everyone. Servers are friendly and helpful and responsive to those who wish to chat and those who wish to be left to themselves. The back booths are very romantic.
Restaurant dining room is dated and unattractive. The food was average The table next to us had a loud father being rude to his kids and literally took over the
Great food and excellent service!
I always eat here when I’m in Laguna Beach . It’s authentic Italian dining.
Just back from Italy and I have to say the food was not disappointing! Very authentic Italian.
Great food and fun service. AC seemed not to be working very well so a little warm inside
