A fine mid-price fish dinner a short drive from the Best Western Dunes (recommended). Fairly full on a Tuesday and I think everyone but us were locals.

This place is a hidden gem in a strip mall. Everything was fresh and delicious! Will definitely be back!

Although the location between a laundry mat and Asian market is kind of strange, and their space is small, the food was very delicious. The clam chowder was creamy, the scallops were perfectly cooked (not over done and rubbery like many places), the lobster sauce was wonderful, and the creme brulee was the best I've ever had. The staff was... More

The place is small and cozy but the food is to die for!!! The special today was frsh salmon and veggies over lunguini. The sauce was light and tasteful. The chowder was great. And the cinnamon sorbet was wonderful. The servers were friendly and very professional. We had a terrific time and learned why this establishment is so highly rated.... More

For about a year a group of us ate dinner at Frutti at least once a week. I didn't join all the time because I am not a big fan. The pasta is good, not great, and the seafood is drowned in lobster cream sauce. I love the sand dabs which are lightly sautéed and feature a small amount of... More

This small Italian restaurant is quite cozy with a nice family atmosphere. The warm fresh bread is delicious and given to you as your over looking there menu. The daily special is always fresh catch fish. I had the fettuccine Alfred with scallops and shrimp portion size good but lacking flavor. There creme Bru le was delicious

Make a reservation! It's very small and it WILL be full by 6:30 if our experience is any guide. True, we were there on a Saturday night, but most of the clientele seemed local and likely to be regulars. I can see why -- dishes were expertly seasoned and well prepared. Great service. An excellent place for good food!

Fast and attentive service. Food was fresh and very tasty. Local ale from less than a km away which was very tasty indeed. Very good indeed - if we were in the area longer we would be coming back for a second visit.

Went to this restaurant for the first time in years. We ordered a Misti De Mar plate, crab cakes, eggplant parmigiana, and petrale sole. The crab cakes were nicely crispy on the outside, but seemed to have more filler than crab, resulting in a mushy end product-not bad, but non descript and lacking ng in crab flavor. Eggplant parmigiana as... More
