Wonderful restaurant Small but personable with absolutely the best Italian seafood I've had in a long time. Had their special and the salmon was cooked to perfection. The linguini was al dente and the oil and garlic sauce with capers, spinach and arugula and sun dried tomatoes was incredible. Great stop on a long trip!!!! The owner is very friendly... More

very good food, wine, service. A nice menu. The sand dabs very good. Excellent price. Recommended. We were a large group but they still managed to give us separate checks. Kudos to their service!

Food was very good. We ordered the Frutti De Mar fettuccine (a seafood fettuccine) and the Salmon. Very limited seating and only open for dinner.

As a resident of Marina for 16 years, there are few eateries that I have not wandered into and tasted the fare. After many positive opinions from locals, spouse and I elected to have an early dinner (6:30 ish) at Frutti De Mar. Eventually, a server arrived with menus, our selection includes a touted crab cake, clam chowder, sand dabs,... More

Excellent meal. I tried sand dabs for the first time so I can't really compare them to other restaurants but they were delicious! My husband had an italian sausage pasta which was also tasty. Service was friendly and prices were very reasonable

I stayed at the Ramada in marina and they recommended this restaurant to me. I had the special for the evening I visited which was a grilled salmon filet on top of linguini with tomatoes and spinach. It was very oily and seriously under seasoned. I also had a house salad and it was swimming in dressing. Everyone else gives... More

This place doesn't look like much from outside. It is a tiny sign in a tiny strip mall. But once you find it you will want to go back time and time again. I had been here once before and when we were back in the area we were asking the concierge about the location. They sent us to another... More

We first tried this restaurant a few years ago and find it is a good go-to place when you are in the mood for fresh seafood and/or seafood and pasta dishes. It is family owned and managed and the staff is always friendly. The prices have remained very reasonable. The wine list is limited, but very fair. The fresh fish... More

While the service was a tad squirrely, the fish was fantastic. Petrale sole in a light lemon cream sauce; salmon beautifully prepared in a great pesto. Warm bread. What happened to the muscles, though? Not available any more. Limited wine list. Small, intimate place with around a dozen tables. Not too quiet.

Really good food. Great price. Not many places to eat in Marina, CA but this was wonderful. We found this through Tripadvisor and did not go wrong.
