If Pacifica is where you're headed....or not....Ristorante Mare is definitely worth driving there for. It is recommended to make reservations any day of the week that it is open since every time I go there it is packed starting from 6:30pm on. Gnocchi is delicious, but my favorite is the Sunday brunch with melon e prosciutto, buttered garlic shrimp, tortellini, and then your main course is awesome with a glass of champagne. I go there often. Whenever it's time to go out to a nice restaurant we choose between Ristorante Mare and Pacifica Thai Restaurant. Also, an added note, the waiters have been there for all of the years I've been going, and everyone is very friendly and accommodating.
