Trattoria Mediterranean (Balboa Island)
Google and Yelp helped us find Trattoria Mediterranean on Balboa Island. We don’t trust Yelp for reviews anymore (as they extort businesses for good reviews) but use them as a backup for Google, whose restaurant reviews have improved significantly over the last year or so.
The restaurant was filling up at 1pm so we missed out on a patio table. But we were quite charmed by the gentleman proprietor.
Fettuccine Carbonara. I am pretty sure this was Alfredo sauce instead of Pecorino cheese but it was quite delicious just the same.
Chicken Mediterranean with a side of Penne. Nice marinade. Dad approved.
Loved our lazy lunch watching the world go by. Mr A loves the Dad benches strategically placed outside every store.
