Owner Michael’s specialty, his ravioli dishes, are a renowned local favorite, and for good reason. They are hand made, with all the care that only a lifetime of creative food combining can bring. In addition to pasta, La Mia Cucina is known for it's fresh fish and meat specials. The desserts are made in-house by his wife Paula and daughter Michaela, and the service is personal and inviting.

    Passionfish is our “go-to” whenever we are in Pacific Grove. We especially like that they only use sustainably sourced fish 🐠 and honor the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s suggestions for same. The fish is always delicious and artfully prepared. First we started with the amazing buttermilk biscuit and black-bean goat cheese fritters (enough for the two of us to share.) We shared a salad and then chose Albacore Tuna and Alaskan Halibut for our entrees. Both delicious! Our server was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommend this restaurant, although almost want to keep it our own little secret.

    Simply put, this was probably the best dining experience that I’ve ever had. Bar none. Excellent staff, the best waffle and bacon I’ve ever had which I couldn’t believe was possible. Best restaurant late I’ve ever had. Best breakfast burrito my wife has ever had. Just immaculate.

    Sadly, the weather kept us from sitting outside, but we still enjoyed good views of the bay. All of the food was excellent. We ordered appetizers, main courses and dessert. Our server Johnny (?) took great care of us and went above and beyond. We closed the restaurant down. The scallop pot pie is highly, highly recommended.
