Cafe Fina Restaurant Review: Cafe Fina is owned by Sicilian-American Dominic Mercurio, the son of a Sicilian fisherman. Not content to rest on his laurels after more than 25 years, he's constantly stepping up his game. He grows many of his own vegetables and he's not afraid to experiment with new dishes, but always refers back to his inspiration --- his mom's cooking. Her marinara sauce recipe makes for well-balanced pizzas out of the wood-burning oven, or try Dominic's special with pesto, sausage and vegetables. Paella is satisfyingly saffrony, and the chowder is some of the best on the wharf. Be prepared to get cozy with your neighbors, and if you can reserve a window seat, grab it. You can bring Fido along to dine on the pet-friendly patio. Gelatos are creamy and bursting with flavor --- we couldn't stop eating the strawberry, even after a great meal. Be warned: Limoncello, also made on the premises, is a truly potent potable.
