Back in Pacific Grove by quirk of fate and headed straight for Fandango for dinner. Sand dabs, salata caprese, and osso bucco with good chianti. Bellissimo!

Superb! Delicious food in a charming atmosphere. Menu offerings are excellent and interesting, and the food presentation is quite appealing. They have quite a wine selection, too. Service was good, and prices reasonable for the quality of food.
