Well, after so many years far from this town of my youth, I had the chance to come back and try some seafood at California. I have ordered a cold starter (fish menu) and taglioni ai frutti di mare (seafood). I have been satisfied by...More

Although the building of the restaurant is not attractive at all, it is definitely worth to have dinner there. The Restaurant is nice and clean. The Food is very good and fresh. Especially, the pasta with frutti di mare, vungole and/or cozze are delicous and...More

We had high hopes for California, given the ranking on TripAdvisor, however our meal was a bit of an overpriced disappointment. Bread was stale and dry, octopus salad was canned and bland and the seafood pasta was just ok. The lowlight was having to wait...More

Ristorante California is the most unlikely of restaurants--a warm, accommodating place on the ground floor of what appears to be a derelict hotel. Ignore the rest of the building. Get an outside table if you can. Primi are incredible, as long as they involve pasta....More

The California restaurant serves the best food in Marotta for a good price. It is a seafood restaurant but they also serve meat and pasta for those who do not eat fish. The fish I have ordered are always fresh and flavourful. My personal favorite...More

The food is solid quality A+. All the fresh pastas with different seafood sauces are amazing as are the fried seafood varieties. You can tell that the restaurant is run by a family, they have their heart and soul in it!
