New outdoor deck seating area - Covid responsible - great food - nice wine selection - friendly service ... what more can I say. Love this place.
Best Italian in Santa Cruz. Hands down! Not your over acidic gravy's. Amazing specials, pastas and the seafood is always on point. Thanks Giovanni for such amazing food.
Fantastic Italian cuisine! Definitely a favorite of ours!
Having been back several times since my first review of this place, I can state that I go back now for the carbonara pasta. I have been searching for the closest carbonara dish to the ones served on my 2016 trip to Italy. This is the best I have found in the US since then and I have had a lot of carbonara. Their ravioli of the day was lamb on this particular day. And it was delicious, served with a light sauce and crispy bacon bits. The margarita pizza was thin and simple but tasty. The cannolis came in a pack of four. Perfect for sharing. Order take out and support local businesses.
We live down the street and have only visited once back in December and that visit was great.Since it's my husband's birthday weekend it was his choice for dinner. He chose Lago Di Como, again we were not disappointed. We ordered the Pizza 4 Stagioni, Polenta Uncia for an appetizer, and cannolis, DELICIOUS! I especially loved the polenta, it was rich with butter and garlic, YUM! The pizza was tasty and the cannolis, sweet but not too sweet. Authentic Italian food so close to home, Olive Garden; .... Foorgeet abouut iit the Reyes family has found a new place!
Variety of pasta dishes that are different from the usual. Delicious and generous portions.
A great addition to Santa Cruz. The staff is charming and the menu outstanding. I particularly enjoyed the pizza one night and the branzino the next.
Love this place. Family friendly and great food! Worthwhile to make a trip to see Giovani and crew.
This restaurant is admittedly right around the corner, and that is why we frequent it so often, but I'd want to come here even if that were not the case. Great food and service. I try to get something different most times, but keep being tempted by there daily ravioli specials that are always excellent. The only thing I'm not into is their pizza, BUT NOT to say it isn't good, it is just traditional, and my personal preference is for thicker crust and more sauce.
I hadn’t been in a number of years, my recollection was good not great. However I’ve been twice in about the past six weeks and it has been excellent. Everyone is friendly and having a good time, and the fried whitefish in sage butter over risotto is stellar. Homemade bread to boot. Definitely going to start coming here with some frequency!
Food was really good We just arrived post hiking near Santa Cruz and it was a great ending for the day We got the carpaccio and some gnocchi and the sea bass all was great , the side dishes for the fish (salad and pasta ) were also great For desert we had the cannoli which I usually not a fan but this one was so great, very crispy and not too sweet, loved it
Great food. Service was very slow.
I travel to Santa Cruz California Twice per year and have dined in most of Restaurant in this town, by far this one is the best Italian food , I had their Pork Scaloppine..GOOGLE their name ans see all the Photos
Fresh seafood as always. Delicious flavors. One of the best Caesar salads around. This place does not disappoint.
