We were very lucky to have found this tiny restaurant on Soquel Ave, just outside downtown Santa Cruz! It is very much worth driving up here to taste the excellent Italian cuisine! We had the aspergus and artichoke soup as a starter and the gnocchi and risotto as a main; all which were amazing! Service was very friendly and informal and the place was filled with locals (people were waiting to be seated, on a weekday), which is a good sign! This place deserves its popularity.
