Experience Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf waterfront dining at its best at PALUCA TRATTORIA.

Paluca is a combination of the names of our two cherished boys, Paolo & Luca, who are the inspiration behind our unique home-style eatery.

Our menu specializes in rustic Italian dishes alongside traditional Fisherman’s Wharf favorites. We take pride in using the freshest local ingredients and seafood.

Chef-Owner, Sal Tedesco, is originally from Sicily and prepares some of Italy’s favorite dishes.  Signature entrees include penne puttanesca, pesto calamari, lobster ravioli, prawns in garlic cream over linguini & artichoke-stuffed ravioli.

We invite you to share a relaxing dining experience at one of our charming waterfront tables.  As you savor your food, enjoy the movable feast of sea life and boat activity in our tranquil little cove of Monterey Bay.

We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home where the kitchen always has something with your name on it.

And remember, Paluca Trattoria loves families and even your family dog who is welcome on our pet-friendly patio.
