Pleasant Outdoors for Lunch

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

Hotel recommended. Good location, cozy and good food. My Wife and I had Bolognese, which was excellent. Will definitely do again.

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!
