Once again, the best in the area

We visit Marina a few times each year, always go here, always great. Just went there, as usual, the best. Crab cakes, Crab ravioli in lobster sauce, sole were delicious. Very small, get reservation; service is great.

Tucked away in a strip mall is this small little gem. Great food and reasonable price menu. The staff is attentive but not smothering. We stop there whoever we can for a great meal!

Enter and be surprised. Small and unique. Small bit fantastic menu. I've had most all items, all good. The calamari is mini filets not processed rings. The waiter actually refused to serve snapper on one visit stating the chef did not approve of the days delivery. Great knowing they pride themselves in quality not dollars, by the way meals are...

We searched Trip Advisor for a great restaurant and Frutti de Mar looked good. This is a small restaurant, but the menu is large and mostly seafood. They have the most incredible warm Italian bread, cloth napkins and tablecloth and a very friendly service staff. The Owner/Manager stopped by our table to insure that everything was perfect. The decor is... More

Our group of 4 stopped and they quickly pushed 2 tables together for us. A few more friends came 15 min later and had a short wait. Dining area in very small, so do not plan for large groups. I had the Snapper that tasted good, and at a decent price. All prices are not high compared to other eating... More

This was our 4th visit. Ambiance is mediocre, food and service are exemplary,price to value is unbeatable. Great place for great food. Don't go there expecting a romantic dinner, go there expecting the best fried calamari you will ever have in your life......not deep fried, but somewhere between fried and sautéed and served with a tasty lobster cream sauce. wow....

This is our go to place. It doesn't get better than this. A small place that knocks it out of the park every time. The sand dabs are the greatest. The service is great. Can't say enough about the food or the owners

My wife and I went driving looking to find a casino in the area. Turns out, not a chance. We were hungry and found Frutti De Mar. The service was very pleasant and the food was a nice meal. Not a high end Italian place but fresh and well prepared. If we lived in the area, we would frequent it... More

I wish TripAdvisor would allow half ratings (1.5, 2.5, etc.). I would have given this a 3.5 if possible, but 3.0 is too low. The staff at Frutti del Mar is extremely friendly. Everyone is happy you're there and ready to make your experience as comfortable as possible. We visited in late December when it was close to 40 degrees... More
