Strictly speaking, the name is accurate. It is what is served here. Still, you have to admire the moxie in choosing that particularly descriptive name. Concentrate, though, on the delicious Neapolitan-style cooking here from recipes handed down by the owner's grandmother. In addition to the terrific mussels, shellfish and fish dishes, find top quality prime rib and wonderful pastas. Specials change daily from the Broiled Halibut in Marinara Sauce to the hearty, house-made Cioppino. The service is warm and friendly for the popular favorite with locals and tourists.
The dining room is done up in a color that is like nothing so much as the most delicate tomato cream sauce. An apt choice for a restaurant that turns out a superior one over its al dente pasta, but there are other delights, too. Fresh seafood is prepared well here, whether grilled with lemon and rosemary or bathed in a rich sauce and stuffed into temptingly plump ravioli. For fresh air without UV rays, there is patio seating under umbrellas and quick, personable service indoors and out. The wine list is good with excellent California selections. Opens from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:30AM.
