We were driving by and thought we would drop by. We had never been here before. The pizza was fantastic, the lasagna was perfect and the pesto pasta was fabulous. We highly recommend it.

I love this place! It's best to go early on a weekend as they have all you can drink mimosas until 2...food is great and usually I have so much that I end up with some to take home and make another meal out of. You can sit outside and people watch on Pacific Ave, which is always interesting! A... More

Outdoor seating ads a nice touch . Service good . Pizza Yummy , Family salad good but on the small side for being a Family size . Price pretty ok for being in Santa Cruz . The Kids loved the free dough that you get to play with ....! Overall a nice experience .

Wow, best Italian food ever! We were traveling through out of state on father's day, decided to treat ourselves. The food was wonderful. Our server was great. Wish we lived closer to come again.

This place was recommended by 2 different people that I totally trust, for the amazing pizza. The pizza was good, nothing spectacular considering the price, but the service was terrible. I think we saw our waiter 3-4 times total including when he brought us our food, the check, and the drinks. He didn't check on us AT ALL from the... More

My husband has lived in this area for years and he didn't know about this place. We were on our way to the movies and while walking down Pacific Ave. we noticed this restaurant. We both had Calzones and they were to die for!!!!! Excellent service too!!!!

Service was good, food was good, was not a "bargain" but then again was worth the price. Good selection. I found it to be a bit noisy inside, but the outside tables seemed great if the weather is good.

Outdoor seating in the heart of Santa Cruz. Right on the corner so a good place to people watch. Ordered the antipesto salad and bowtie pasta for the main course. Delicious,...delicious....delicious. Go early as the place fills up quickly.

Family of 8, got right in. Enjoyed the spicy cheese bread with jalapeño. The kids loved that they brought a chunk of pizza dough to play with while we waited for our food. Pizzas are hand tossed. The cheese ravioli's with garlic cream sauce were outstanding. And the bruschetta pasta was very good. Service was friendly and helpful. On a... More

I have always wanted to try this place but never read any reviews. I ordered the goat cheese and arugula pizza. And for an Italian place, you would think they would have Spumante wine available! Nope! Just a small selection of reds and whites, which the waiter I had knew nothing about. My pizza arrived promptly and on the first... More
