Although Italian cuisine’s shining stars are pasta and pizza, it has a lot more variety than you might think. Traditional Italian dishes use many other tasty ingredients like different kinds of seafood. Cafe Fina’s own founder, Dominic Mercurio, uses family recipes handed down from generation to generation, and we make sure to stay true to our roots. Here at our restaurant, we serve authentic Italian food using only the best seafood Monterey waters have to offer.
Our specialty, the Pasta Fina, is a classic Italian dish. We use fresh baby shrimp caught in the Bay and serve it up on linguini. We also use roma tomatoes, black olives, green onions, and shallots harvested right from our own garden. To top it all off, we add a rich clam butter sauce.
