Dont be fooled or put off by the location in a strip mall. It is a small place on the inside and it is often full. Atmosphere is okay - nautical theme. The food here is excellent and prices are not bad as I have eaten here a number of times. They have many Italian dishes as well as seafood... More

This place is tiny, so get a reservation. We were lucky enough to get a table quickly. The menu is more sophisticated than you might expect for a little strip mall eatery. We had a wonderful meal served by some of the nicest and most professional staff I have had the pleasure of meeting in quite some time. It is... More

We are Marina locals and can assure you that this restaurant is indeed where you will experience the finest dining Marina, CA has to offer. And it is fine indeed. Even the children's menu is delicious! We come here for date nights, but we also bring our kids sometimes too, if they are lucky. Share a bottle of local wine,... More

Looks like an unlikely place for a delicious meal from the outside, but don't be fooled. I had the salmon special which was delicious. They understood the gluten free concept which can sometimes be an issue at an Italian place. Great value and friendly staff.

Celebrated the new job my spouse had accepted that morning here with our twin adult children. Food was delicious. Daughter had the snapper; son had pasta with pesto; my spouse had the cannelloni; I had the crab ravioli. This place has become a family favorite for us- food and service are consistently excellent. The tiny restaurant opens at 5 pm... More

Was recommended by a friend. What a pleasant surprise. My wife and I each had a salad to start (mixed greens and Caesar - both perfect ) and then split an amazing wild salmon pasta. It was unbelievable delicious, with both pasta and fish cooked perfectly, and wonderfully balanced seasoning. We live in Monterey but will be traveling back here... More

Stopped one evening for dinner with some guests from Latrobe, PA for a nice Italian dinner. We were all very satisfied and happy with our food and the service. The place is super tiny but very busy, a good sign it was good. Service was very good and the prices were reasonable. We enjoyed a nice glass of wine with... More
