Abalonetti Seafood Trattoria
Vaguely nautical from the outside and quite contemporary from the inside, this restaurant is one of four ventures by Peninsula celebrity chef John Pisto. The interior is white on white on white with a few indoor trees and potted palms adding patches of green. The paint job plus the amount of light that filters in through the oversized windows causes the place to almost sparkle when the sun is at its peak. Guests dine on fresh fish, seafood pastas, wood-fired pizzas and, the house specialty, calamari prepared in one of a half-dozen different ways.
Wonderful food, really friendly staff and the waiter really went out of his way to make your experience there the best! We went into the restaurant about 5 pm and we were the only ones there. When we left it was packed with a line out the door and we still got wonderful service and nobody rushed our meal for the table.
I frequented "Abalonetti's Seafood" November, 1970 to October, 1971 while attending school in Monterey. I have yet to find calamari in such variety, and so well prepared as during that time. While I realize the ownership has changed since then, it is obvious that attention to continuity of quality has remained. - Jim Hensley, Seattle, WA
