Abalonetti Bar & Grill

on Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf.

One of Monterey’s Original Restaurants!

Abalonetti is the given name to the squid when it is prepared just like abalone. Even the connoisseur cannot tell the difference to make the squid Abalonetti. Remove the skin, split the squid and pound it until tender … then bread the squid. Now you have Abalonetti ready for any type of cooking.
We specialize in Monterey Bay Calamari and offer almost a dozen varieties of these squid dishes — many found only at Abalonetti Bar & Grill – Try our Exclusive Buffalo Calamari! We also offer Gluten Free options.
