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

Whenever in town, we come here. Not fancy, but very good food at very reasonable price, with great service. Causal; very small, 12 tables, get a reservation. Crab cakes are the best; crab ravioli I get most of the time.

If you love fish, and appreciate attentive caring service, this restaurant is for you. First class fish entrees reasonably priced.Do not be put off by the strip mall exterior; go in for an awesome and friendly dining experience.

Stayed overnight in Marina during a recent trip in California. Frutti de mar was a promising name (literalli meaning sea fruits in the dialect spoken in north east Italy - lived there for a while). By the reviews posted here I was expecting a lot more. The starter was the best part of the dinner and it was mediocre at... More

We stayed at Santuary Beach Resort, and instead of traveling to Monterey, we decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! The food was great! Don't be put off by the hole-in-the-wall location. This place is a gem!

We dined here one evening as we stayed in a nearby hotel. The food was good as well as the service. It's very small but quaint. I had the crab ravioli with lobster sauce .It was quite tasty. Can't remember what my wife had but she liked it. I also enjoyed their house Merlot.

This has to be one of the best meals we've ever had in a completely unpretentious setting. The dishes we chose were cooked to perfection and all the fish was fresh and local - calamari and brushetta for starter, sanddab and grilled snapper, ice cream desert. Simply perfect! Service was very friendly and attentive. We were originally planning to drive... More
