Beautiful fish and pastas, very fresh and excellently prepared. They have a large seafood market outside the restaurant so, there is no excuse for not having fresh fish and, it is. If you want seafood in Santa Cruz, this is the place to go.

We visited this restaurant with a group of 22 after a tour of the redwoods. We were in a private back room that accommodated us all. An outside view of the Wharf and beach. Very confined, noisy and hard to hear. Service was very good. We had 4 or 5 taking care of us. I had the fish combo platter.... More

Stagnaro Bros Seafood is historic to Santa Cruz Wharf. Locals love it and visitors, too. Enjoy the weekly specials and the ocean views.

11/9--celebrated a birthday and on a very foggy and cold evening we decided on fresh fish for dinner. Located at the end of the Santa Cruz Wharf and very popular with the locals and tourists. Can get noisy because they are quite busy. The staff is friendly and provide good service. Hot clam chowder included with dinner and just hit... More

You're at the beach so you have to have seafood. Stagnaro Brothers has been in the are for many, many years. There are a lot of seafood restaurants on the Santa Cruz pier, but we're glad we happened to pick this one.

An ad in the Santa Cruz Sentinel said "$10.95 cioppino except on holidays and weekends". Went there Monday 11/10/14. We were told "Owner decided that this a holiday too, since tomorrow is Veterans Day". We ate down the street at Fire Fish.

Right on the main pier/wharf of Santa Cruz. Easy to walk to/locate from city center. We went there for happy hour beers and snack. Very good beer and prices,,the fried calamari was standard, but good. Great ambience. Go upstairs and get a table by the window for a great view.

We didn't dine in , just stopped for a quick take out . Our crab cocktails were tasty and reasonably priced . The fellow serving us was very friendly . The item that will get us coming back in the future was the Stagnaro sunset drink . It's a non alcoholic slushy drink that was ideal for a hot day... More
