Fresh Local Italian Seafood at Monterey Restaurants 

 Welcome to Cafe Fina

Owner Dominic Italian Seafood restaurantI would like to personally welcome you to Cafe Fina. My family and I have been serving diners here on Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey since 1989. We specialize in Italian Seafood cuisine, home-made pastas and raviolis, grow our own seasonal, organic vegetables and serve a wonderful variety of the freshest seafood from Monterey Bay.

Our wood-burning oven prepares excellent pizza, and our charming Italian decor and ocean views make dining at our waterfront restaurant a memorable experience. We're proud of our standing as one of the best restaurants in Monterey, and we cordially invite you to dine with us here at Cafe Fina. We hope to see you soon!
