Superior Customer Service and Great Pizza!

Found Cecco Ristorante by happenstance and was really pleased with the gourmet brick oven hand tossed pizzas and expansive wine list. Being a holiday weakend, the place was buzzing and packed.

A bit on the expensive side, but nice décor, good food and service. We were seated and served promptly despite the fact that we had no reservation and the place seemed to be quite popular. We shared a delicious Italian style pizza accompanied by wine, although were tempted by many of the items from the Italian menu. A great find!

Although a bit pricy but we'll worth it. A much deserved treat after having my car breakdown off the highway. Didn't have a reservation, but was seated and served promptly. I ordered the pasta bolognese and it was incredibly delicious with my red wine. My kids shared a pizza and we all shared an incredible Creme Brule.

My wife and I shared a pizza on the outdoor patio before going to the theater. The pizza was fresh and tasty. My only complaint was that the center of the pizza was a little soggy.

We stopped here for lunch on a beautiful May day and it was nice to eat outdoors. We had pizzas and salads. The pizza was good, but not a la NY; but you're not in NYC.

We love Cecco's. I'd give it 5 thumbs up for service, location, staff and food quality. The only reason I give it 4, is that the menu is really quite limited. However, with that said, the chef goes out of his way to help with dietary needs. They are quick to do all they can to change things up for... More

Lovely outdoor patio with grass next door for the kids to run around on. We come to Solvang around 3-4 times a year, and we always go to Cecco for lunch. It's hard for us to deviate from what we normally order, because it is so, so, yummy. The pasta with meat sauce is amazing. The pizzas are thin and... More

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.
