Went in for our 3rd anniversary. Heard it was family friendly and with a 2 yr old that's a plus. Never imagined that it would be that great!!! Walked in and truly second guessed a place this nice would be good for kids, it was. They seated us in prime seats(not shoving us in the corner), and when they brought... More

This is bar none the best Italian restaurant I've ever eaten at! The food is awesome, service very good, view excellent and I'd go back in a heartbeat. I've been two times in the last two weeks and I would go tomorrow again if I was in town. Amazing food.

We had a conference in Novotel and needed a place for lunch. What a surprise it was to eat in this restaurant. The place was full with people at lunch time. We had to wait for a while before getting a table for 2. But it was worth waiting as this was the best Italian lunch I have ever had.... More

I've lived in Morro Bay for about a year a half now and I've yet to dine here. I had a friend come in to town and he wanted Italian so I thought I would try it out. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews but I'm really glad I went despite what some reviewers said!... More

I came here for lunch after an adventurous and tiring day in morro bay and the food was great! The service was very good and the food came out pretty fast which was very important since we were extremely hungry! I would love to come to this place again!

We were hopeful we would have a great dinner, and the food was just alright.... it was the wait staff that was horrible. Food- Overall it was standard Italian fare, calzone was good and pasta cooked perfect. Other than that nothing to rave over! Just your normal run of the mill pasta joint. Service - Horrible. Our waiter never told... More

For dinner you can get a great view of the water. Our dinner was very good. Several tables had been sat after ours and received their food at least 20 minutes before us. I am aware that certain meals take different times and maybe orders aren't put in at the same time. However I did notice that our order was... More

Nice view but food wasn't amazing. Restaurant was almost empty. Staff nice. Dorn's (next to it) had more people in but we only stayed one night so couldn't compare the competition.

Great views, location, and service. Gf menu with 12 or so entrees. Eggplant and scampi dishes delicious. My Gf pasta was undercooked and chicken was over cooked.

It was Pizza Tuesday (long story here), and we were on the hunt for the Nibble Nook (Yup, that’s the name) Pizzeria in Morro Bay. Couldn’t find it, even with GPS, so we ended up at this great full service restaurant we had never been to called DiStasio’s with a fantastic view of Morro Rock and the Bay with the... More
