Wonderful food and very friendly service. It's our go-to comfort food restaurant. The pizza has an excellent crust and a large quantity of toppings. We love the family who runs the place.

I have a friend who works in an Italian restaurant in Berkeley. She said the food at Lo Coco's was good. I had been to Rome earlier in the year and I was craving some authentic Tuscan fare. I had the spaghetti and meat balls. It was okay, not great, a 'C'. My friend had the pizza with eggplant. She... More

I loved the food, the service, and the setting. Lo Cocco serves simple and simply delicious Sicilian specialities. A great neighborhood destination that attracts satisfied customers from neighborhoods from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

My husband and I frequent La Coco's restaurant because of the amazing food, the warm atmosphere and the excellent service. Their spaghetti and meatballs are like nothing we have ever tasted. Their special sugo sauce is fantastic, and their sautéed calamari is a taste of heaven. Their salads and bread are the best. They have a wide array of dishes... More

This is a quaint and very popular Italian restaurant along busy Piedmont Ave. I have been there close to half a dozen times, and each time I will go through every item on the menu and end up ordering the baked eggplant dish. Very yummy!

What is not to like about the food here? I love their tomato sauce, meatballs, spaghetti, and the bread is the absolute best.

Our party of six ordered the pastas. combination pizza, spaghetti, eggplant Parmesan and meatballs. It was all excellent. We arrived on a Sunday around 5:00. Literally within 7 minutes every table was full. There's a good reason why. Very pleasant serving staff, crazy good pizza and a meatball almost as good as my mom's. What a great refind. I had...

Yeah, I know, them's fighting words. But you gotta check out Lo Coco's if you love pizza. The eggplant pizza is to die for!! The quality is stellar and the staff remembers us even though we may go only once a year - the day before Thanksgiving! It's small, can be noisy, and you may have to wait. Guess what?... More

I needed an Italian place for a Saturday night dinner with my brother and sister-in-law, who are rather unadventurous eaters (I was warned to avoid anything "exotic"). LoCoco's fit the bill perfectly: tasty renditions of traditional dishes, served up efficiently, with no reservations necessary. After a reasonable wait, we were seated at a table on the sidewalk, where we people-watched,... More
