Ristorante Rumari (Italian for "Restaurant of the Sea") is one of the most popular restaurants in Laguna Beach. It is popular for three primary reasons. First because of its fine Italian soul food. Second because of its location, away from the traffic and congestion of downtown Laguna. This makes it especially popular with the local residents of Laguna as well as those who have been referred by a friend, business associate or concierge at one of Laguna's many boutique hotels. There is abundant street parking as well as a small free lot behind the restaurant. (If you have ever tried to find a parking space in downtown Laguna you will appreciate Rumaris' location) The third reason this restaurant is so popular, and some say the most important reason is the Crivello Family, Vincenzo and Massimo and their mother Bina and father Antonio. Rumari is truly a "Family Affair" and has been for more than 24 years!

My favorite restaurant in Laguna Beach. Excellent food that is authentic Italian, expansive wine menu that pairs well with the food, most importantly incredibly attentive wait staff.

Rumari did not honor its free wine or martini with entrée coupon.
Waiter NICK acted dishonestly.

We tried 3 pastas and a risotto; all were good. Portion sizes are ample. 4 different desserts were delightful and large.

Food was delicious. My Italian wife could not stop raving about how good the spaghetti with eggplant was! The Tiramisu and Semifreddo desserts were a great way to finish the night.

the waiter was rude as hell and he ruined the whole thing. Don’t go here unless you’re old and like spending way too much for wine and bland food

Timeless place. Great food. Unique. Out of all the Italian restaurants, this one is set apart by its home like feel. Walk accross the street and your at the beach.
