Prior to traveling to the Monterey Peninsula for 2019 U.S.Open Week, I asked for restaurant recommendations from my circle of friends, many of whom have visited the area. Perhaps the most enthusiastice recommendation I received was for La Mia Cucina, and as I found out, for good reason. The Scanlons welcome you warmly into their lovely, intimate restaurant and treat you as family. Our party of seven felt it from the moment we walked in and the wait staff only added to the experience. I was told to order the lobster ravioli, so I did. My entree, salad, dessert, wine and the attentive service were all exceptional. We had a lovely conversation with Michael Scanlon toward the end of our meal and he shared his philosophy of growing their business through recommendations from the good people they serve, rather than pursuing tourist focused publicity or promotion. So I am honored to help the Scanlons with this review. Our family is returning tho the area for a wedding in November. I will be sure to return to renew my acquaintance with these lovely people and introduce my wife and children to them. It is a blessing when one finds a true "home away from home" while traveling. I cannot possibly recommend highly enough!
