Canetti's San Pedro

WLA | Aug 4, 200311:14 AM

We had to be down in SP on Saturday night for my wife's business and after we finished we drove over to Canetti's which is at the very end of 22nd Street as it runs in to the harbor. Tom Armitage has previously written a much more extensive and better post than this one on this restaurant which I have linked to.

The only thing I will say is that I really like this type of local "dive", (which I use in the best sense of the word). The fish was very fresh and preparation was very simple, but it was good. This is not a destination spot, but if your in the area and you want casual, friendly and filling, it will do the trick.

I had the cajun catfish, our teenage weasel son had the halibut sandwich and my wife had the fish and chips. They both had cokes but I drank my long necked
Bud from the bottle, which suits this place perfectly. Opened in 1949, and menu say's something about "call for hours of operation" or something like that.

A very interesting side note was my wife was looking at a photo on the wall which was directly behind her of the USS Constellation (aircraft carrier). As we were talking about it a couple who had just gotten up from dinner to leave came over and the man asked if he could take a closer look at the photo. We told him no problem and then he explained that he had flown F-14's from the Connie and had over 500 takeoff's and landings and that she was being decommissioned next week and that he and his wife were attending the event.

That is the sort of serendipitous event that makes my day and dinner go better.
