The Calamari Story
Dedicated to the fishermen of Monterey Bay
In the early 50's Abalonetti began to popularize this delicacy of the sea. Even after several decades, Abalonetti continues to specialize in calamari, serving over 70,000 pounds last year alone.
It is with great respect and pride we dedicate this restaurant to the calamari fishermen of Monterey Bay.
