This unassuming little restaurant turns out top quality Italian and seafood dishes. Don't be put off by the quirky location between a laundromat and Asian Market. The family owned Frutti de Mar offers up some of the best food in the area. Seafood is fresh and perfectly prepared. The sand dabs are sublime. Their Italian classics are just the thing when you're in the mood for pasta or an amazing chicken parmigiana. They have a small, well-priced wine list, beers and soft drinks. Be sure to make reservations-- it may be casual but there is always a crowd for the tiny dining room.

I honestly wouldn't have even thought about going into this cozy little restaurant if I hadn't read about it first - the outside looks rather plain and maybe even a little trashy with the Christmas decorations in March (at least to me as an European colorful lights on a chain are usually Christmas stuff), but it is a wonderful restaurant. The food is amazing, the service is super friendly and the prices are really very reasonable. For this kind of quality and service, I would have paid twice as much at some other, more fancy place.

This is my third visit to Frutti De Mar Grill. This is a local place, so if you are visiting the Monterey Peninsula, go out of the normal and go to this place.

This is a family owned restaurant, with about 50 seats, and only open for dinner at 5:00, so reservations would be recommended. My party of 6 this evening had, Petrale Sole, San Dabs, Chicken Parmesan,

All was Great!

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 dishes. I have not been disappointed with anything that I have selected. They also serve warm bread prior to the meal. The servers are attentive and checked on us a number of times. Typically this is one of those "hidden" places that locals eat at.
