Great find!

Our planned restaurants were closed so we looked around and lucked out finding Cecco. Small and tightly packed, which added to the charm for us. Varied menu which also has items for non-meat eaters. Only drawback was no full bar. But plenty of wine and beer selections.

Short ribs tortellini and a pork and egg pizza were our meals. Both were very good, quite tasty. I thought the eggs would be hard boiled and sliced, so the presentation surprised me. But the overall combination of flavors was delicious. Wife loved the tortellini. Easily recommended.

I had a wonderful delicious dinner with a the staff and owner paying attention to every detail. The prices were a little pricey, but well worth it. I would definitely return to this restaurant for dinner. I made reservations, and I am glad I did!

We stopped by on a Sunday night. It seems as if this restaurant is ran by young teenage/ early 20's kids. It may explain the slight lack of some of the inexperienced servers, but they were still very friendly and polite. When we arrived, nobody greeted us except a very tall young man, (who noticed us standing around waiting) in... More

Great food, moderately priced. You won't be sorry. And that's coming from someone who lives here locally!

We are from Chicago, and are used to some amazing Italian cuisine. When we decided to go here for dinner I was somewhat skeptical about what we might find. I was pleasantly surprised. They have a varied menu that apparently changes often, and I found it to be imaginative and innovative. Among other entrées, we tried a couple of their... More

I ate here with a friend based on a recommendation from a local when we were visiting Solvang. The food was great, but the place seemed small. Maybe because the sat us inn the corner. I would've given this place a 4 or 5 except for the fact that they overcharged my card almost DOUBLE what the bill was. Since... More

My wife and I decided on a whim to visit Solvang. We walked around town to the different touristy places and, of course, I got very hungry. It was about 3:00 pm. We were in a mood for Italian and one of the clerks at a shop we visited suggested Cecco Ristorante. It wasn't crowded as we visited Solvang on... More

We were staying for only 1 night in the area, so gave Cecco a try. Were told it was a good choice and eventually found it. It was very busy with an extremely loud woman on one table, We did have to wait a while before we were served but we had pizza and pasta and caprese salad which we... More

We have been to Solvang many times and always struggle with where to have dinner locally. Well weren't we pleasantly surprised to find Cecco. Upon arrival we thought it was a simple pizza place but after we were taken to the seating area and looked at the menu we were pleasantly surprised. We decided to try the "Special" spaghetti bolognaise--... More
