It can be hard to find affordable places to dine in Monterey, but at Il Vecchio, you can grab a $4 mimosa or a $5 bellini for the perfect boozy lunch. You should try and sit outside at the trattoria’s painted parklet equipped with its own canopy covering. Skip the sandwiches and entrees and move straight to their pasta selection: the rigatoni with Tuscan-style ragù di carne and the orecchiette with mushroom, sausage, and peas are highlights.
