Excellent authentic fine Italian cuisine in Solvang. It is pricey, but so is everything in Solvang. The tortellini and the pizzas are fantastic. Order with a glass of Chianti or Grenache. Fresh bread is wonderfully crunchy on the crust and soft and delicious inside. Best to sit on the patio -- there are heaters at night. If they run out... More

Why eat Italian food when in a Danish town and I'm Swedish? I don't know why but am so glad we did! We went here at the recommendation of our hotel concierge and were warmly welcomed at the door, seated immediately and had fantastic service the entire time there. I ordered the evenings special and my wife had the carbonara,... More

If you cook traditional Bolognese you will be amazed at this entrée. The ingredients are so tasty and the portion is generous enough for two to share. Corkage fee is $15 so we brought a nice Old Vine Zin that was terrific with the Bolognese and the puttenesca pasta my wife had. We come to Solvang at least once a... More

We ate here twice for lunch during our trip to Solvang. Both times we had our dog with us and were easily accomodated on the oudoor patio which had plenty of space to to sit out of the way. First day we had a great bottle of pinot noir from Sta. Rita Hills and I had a margarita pizza (my... More

I had ordered the Marco Pizza (Prosciutto) and I could not stop eating ! I usually have 2-3 slices max - well, I... More

Tara our server was excellent. I had the beet salad and it was wonderful. The Bruschetta was unusual and delicious. You get one large piece and is enough for 2. I have had the pizza and it is great. We make a point of eating here every time we are in Solvang.

We went to an event tonight that included samplings of various pizzas made by Cecco. They were without a doubt the best pieces of pizza we've ever had, and we've eaten a heck of a lot of pizza in our day. Fresh ingredients, unusual parings, great crust, just perfection in every bite. We kept hearing others raving about the pizza... More

Dined here based on TA reviews. Food and service were very good. A little pricey. 4 drinks, one appetizer and two entrees came to $115 with tax and tip. Pizzas are large, two people can easily split one and still be full, especially if you get even one of their amazing appetizers. We ordered the fried oysters. Fantastic! They come... More

We made a last minute Open Table reservation here and got right in. We ordered a variety of food and it was all good. The pizzas are bigger than expected. Two people could easily share one pizza. the wine was good....the raviolis were good. It was all good.
