Down by the San Carlos beach on the edge of the pier, sits Osteria Al Mare (Restaurant at the sea, in Italian). Come enjoy the beautiful pier, sea lions, and the taste of the old country. All of our ingredients are locally sourced and are as fresh as could be found. While our menu does change to reflect the freshest of ingredients, we offer such stables as Fritto Di Calamari, Stinco di Maiale alla Birra (beer braised pork shank) and our Pan-seared salmon. These items Maurizio perfected in Italy more than 30 years ago.
We loved everything about it. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful dinner! All seating was outside but views and weather were perfect!
Maurizio and his staff are kind, attentive and happy! Food is excellent-bruschetta and polenta as appetizers are a must!
Excellent food and ambience
Once again a great experience at Osteria. The food was perfectly done - scallops nice and crusty, sanddabs crispy and flavorful. Service was superb - even though the waiter was swamped with multiple tables we did not feel ignored and the wait was minimal. Can't wait to go back.
Did not eat there. Reserved a specific table two Weeks earlier and it was taken.
Love this place ! The food, the service, the ambiance ...and let’s not forget the host/owner with a wonderful personality and skills...
A must see if in Pacific Grove ! Owner always makes you feel welcome . Food is always on point. Wine list is top rate. View is amazing !!! We go every month and we live almost 2 hrs away.
Great food, great service, great location. Maurizio is personable and will offer you personal choices where possible on the menu where possible, in order to make your dining experience just what you want it to be.
We love the Osteria Al Mare. The food is GREAT!!!
Perfectly prepared, authentic Italian cuisine served in an idyllic setting on the dock. Warm, hospitable service. Hats off to the whole team for following every safety point in the book to protect against Covid-19!
One of our favorite restaurants. Great food and service always.
This particular Sunday Osteria had only one waiter so service was quite slow, our check was incorrect and the ambiance was fair as a result of insufficient staff.
