Few places could pull off classic Sicilian dishes and not so classic but fairly well-known Filipino cooking at the same time. Matteo's in Pacific Grove CA, just outside the Monterey line on Highway 68 is such a place. No CCs, but they take checks and debit cards and cash of course. Matteo is always there, always fussing, always friendly. His wife is the chef. Great little-known wines, most only 30 dollars a bottle.
Great crustry Italian bread, wonderful Italian salads, even Lumpia and Meatloaf on occasion!
Worth a trip when you're on the Monterey Peninsula
