My friend and I are both gluten intolerant, so when we were visiting Santa Monica we were excited to try Rosti. It is in a great location. I love the area & wish the other shops would have been open. We were quickly seated when we walked in & I asked for the Gluten free & Vegan Menu. Someone took... More

Had dinner here last night. The food was very good and the portions were very generous. We did not know that the restaurant did not have a liquor license.Service was good and it is a fun place to eat.

This restaurant should be in a better location .The outside seating is not great. Other restaurants in this chain have much better outdoor seating. The food is goo. not incredible. It is a neighborhood place for a casual meal. Do not go out of your way to get here.

This place is bad. Very low quality of food. Service is horrible. They clean floor around you while you are eating. Don't go!

We went back after 5 years as we live in Texas and it is as good or better. One of my staff who lives in Santa Monica said it was a "must go" and he is so right. Amazing herb roasted chicken and homemade soups. Locals were coming in to get takeout dinner the whole time. A real plus is... More

The chicken is very well seasoned, the vegetables fresh, and quite frankly for the money Rosti is a terrific value. When we are in Santa Monica, Rosti is on the list of go to places for a good quick meal.

The food was awesome, one of the personal pizza was good coming from a New Yorker... Desserts looked awesome but weren't the greatest...

The menu has lots of Italian food options. The food was flavorful and reasonably priced. Small but relaxing atmosphere. Very attentive and friendly staff.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
