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

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
