I visited this restaurant and was very disappointed. The price is outrageous . The owner is rude. I don't recommend this restaurant what so ever. He constantly stereotypes everyone.

We had dinner here and for the price expected much more. I have ordered Linguini and Clams at dozens of restaurants over my life but this was so bad I could not even eat it. I don’t know if they over seasoned the broth or it was just their take on seasoning, but I have never in my life not... More

Some of the best Seafood Alfredo there is! Full of seafood, great flavorful sauce. My husband had the meatball sandwich and garlic fries. He said the sandwich was perfectly made, and the garlic fries were generously covered in fresh, chopped, Gilroy Garlic. Highly recommend this place for a variety of cuisine.

Have eaten here twice. Disappointed both times. Food not prepared very well. Too much sauce, not very tasty. If you want Italian, find somewhere else in Monterey.

As previously reported the staff were very friendly and helpful. The portions are very large and we four diners struggled to finish two full meals between us. The 15 pizza is definitely for 2. Really good prices when four diners are full with 2 main courses.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years. Always stop in when I'm in town for the races at Laguna Seca. Meals are always great and service is likewise. Prices are reasonable.

So my Wife and I decided to try this Restaurant because We have driven past it numerous times. The Host ( Owner ) sat Us immediately and the Atmosohere was charming and quaint.
