Reviewing Ristorante Rumari

Visit Ristorante Rumari while staying at Casa Laguna Inn and Spa, a Laguna Beach Hotel.When you’re visiting Laguna Beach and you are looking for a hearty, satisfying dinner with wine for a reasonable price, nothing fits the bill better than Italian food and Italian wine--and Laguna has more than a few Italian eateries. One of our favorites is conveniently located just a half mile north of Casa Laguna on the same side of Pacific Coast Highway. Operated by the Crivello family for more than 18 years, Ristorante Rumari, is classic Italian in every way. The place is small but classy, with a nice bar area and friendly efficient staff. We recently went there with friends. Everyone had something different, and everyone loved what they had – including Gnocchi Al Pesto: Tender potato dumplings in a creamy pesto sauce; Penne Al Samone: Penne pasta in a tomato-cream sauce with mushrooms and generous chunks of fresh salmon; Lasagna Della Nonna: Classic lasagna pasta layered with meat sauce, mozzarella and parmigiano cheese; and Fettuccine Dello Chef Alfredo: Fettucine pasta in a perfectly flavored Alfredo sauce with tiger shrimp that had the flavor and texture of high end lobster. Our server was always available but never hovering and provided recommendations that were spot-on, including a marvelous Chianti Classico that complimented everyone’s dish. Portions were generous and the leftovers were just as fabulous at home the following night. Knowing how much food was coming, we skipped the appetizers and salad, and thus dinner for four with wine and a shared dessert was just a little over $100. How’s that for value? So, when you’re staying at Casa Laguna and you want a delicious, filling meal, with great service, in a classy atmosphere, nearby, for a very reasonable price, we “heartily” recommend Ristorante Rumari. We had a little trouble viewing the menu on their website, so  check out their menu on
