Great Restaurant

Food is really good. You can tell everything is made locally and fresh. Pizza oven at entrance where you can watch the chef. Relaxed ambiance and not overpriced.

Amazing pizza one of the best pizzas I've had outside of Italy! We shared the prosciutto pizza, salad, pasta and wine-everything was excellent. Definitely recommend this Italian eatery if you find yourself in Solvang!

My husband and I started with the caprese salad, it was pretty good. We then had the mushroom tortellini pasta and the shrimp puttanesca they were both wonderful. We sat outside in the patio and it was nice. Service was great.

I've been to this place before and gave it a good review but last night although not busy they had an off night . Three of us enjoyed our food but the fourth dish only showed up when everybody else was finished and the apologies weren't very convincing. Waters didn't get refilled and another glass of wine, which was overprized... More

We were a party of 5 with no reservation. They were very accommodating. We had a bottle of wine, a beer and 2 pizzas. Everyone enjoy everything? The server was great. Glad we chose this place to eat.

We sat outside in a shaded patio area that was very nice. Our server was very nice even asking the chef for a calorie estimate for the excellent grilled salmon dish that we split. I also had an excellent beet and arugula salad that was delicious. It was a very enjoyable experience.

The wine list is OK. They have some imported beer too. At the menu you have a good variety of food. I have ordered a Brusquetta, by the way, one of the best in my life and a Carbonara as a main dish - perfect again! My husband, as a starter, Costollete. Is a huge plate and delicious too. As...

I believe everything we tried was pretty much organic... Making the food taste much more delicious. We had the chicken, pizzas, caprese salad and spaghetti bolognese. We had an Open Table reservation and were seated right away outside. Good service.

Pizza with a glass of hearty red wine at Cecco is a perfect way to relax after a day walking shops in Solvang. No, it's not Danish or inexpensive. It offers a wonderfully light, thin and a bit chewy pizza crust with a good choice of toppings and a short but good choice of wines. Our server was knowledgeable, a... More

The ambiance isn't the best in the world, but the service was quite good and the food was delicious.
