Fresh Seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey, CA

monterey restaurants owner

I would like to personally welcome you to Cafe Fina. My family and I have been serving diners on Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf since 1989. We specialize in Italian cuisine, make our pastas and raviolis in house, grow our own seasonal organic home-grown vegetables, and serve a variety of only the freshest seafood from the Monterey Bay. Our wood-burning oven prepares excellent pizza, and the quaint Italian decor and ocean views make dining at our waterfront restaurant a memorable experience. If you are looking for places to eat in Monterey, give Cafe Fina a try.

I hope to see you soon!

Dominic Mercurio, Owner
