Spruzzo is one of our favorite regular spots. We visit Ray and his delightful restaurant and staff at least once a week, and have been regulars for 18 years. Spruzzo cannot be equalled for comfort, great food, friendly personal service, non pretentious atmosphere and a spacious airy interior and the best outdoor deck in Malibu. When we party at home and don't want to cook, Spruzzo delivers nice hot pizzas and other great dishes, promptly and reliably. I have nothing but good things to say about this cheerful place. Any negative reviews one might read are from people who obviously cannot be pleased regardless. Let them go suffer at chain restaurants, we Malibu locals love Spruzzo.

Italian fare, very good. Pizza was really good, as well as a sandwich my daughter ordered. Younger son got spaghetti with meatballs that was really, really good. Excellent ambience, as you can sit outside on an upper balcony, viewing the beach across the street. Great service as well. Overall, I would really recommend this place!

I'm thrilled to hear that you were a fan of everything from our pizza to the service, Bruce -- thanks a bunch for taking a moment to spread the word. We look forward to seeing you and yours the next time you stop in for a bite to eat.

All the best,

Good to be at a place that is very laid back...dogs and happy people enjoying a back porch atmosphere looking at the Pacific! Food is basic beach bar fare! Nothing special, but good! I had the Rubin sandwich. Very average and sparse on kraut! THE VIEW HOWEVER MADE UP FOR IT,

Thank Charles U

Had the occasion to have dinner last night with my husband at this lovely neighborhood restaurant.
We had been to an Italian chain restaurant a few weeks earlier that left much to be desired. I was ready for some good Italian food and I got it at Spruzzo's. The ambiance is lovely, nice bar and a second-floor killer view patio - heat lamps and fire pits and a beautiful view of the ocean. Can't wait to come back when it is a bit warmer and enjoy the view and some great food.

Location, Location, Location! Located on the 2nd. floor of the shopping center across from Zuma Beach at Bush Dr. and PCH, the view from the LARGE PATIO is wonderful. Most tourists don't see or know about this local hang where stars sometimes go to avoid the world and have a great meal. This is an Italian Restaurant but has lots of other American favorites. It may not be the Best Italian Restaurant in The World but everything is served hot or fresh.The doors open at 11am. and you can order inexpensive lunch specials until 4pm. For Appetizers try the Calamari (freshly caught off the coast of Malibu) or The Grilled Artichokes (freshly picked from Oxnard, just up the coast). The pizza here is good! Try the Grilled Salmon, Porcini Chicken, Eggplant Rollatini, Ravioli, or Penne Arabbiat on the lunch menu. All are very good! The Salad selection is great and I found that I was full with just a small order. They will swap out items like Hearts of Palm in the Chopped Salad for tomatoes and give you Balsamic Dressing instead of the house dressing. This is a CAN DO restaurant. There is a fully stocked bar that has several draft beers and a sports TV. Try the Bloody Mary! Yummy! The help is friendly and attractive. I went here with a local friend at 1pm. on Sunday and had no problem getting a great ocean view table. After this review is out, you might want to call to see what the situation is on seating: 310-457-8282
