This is a family favorite for dinner. Good pasta and pizza. Nice variety. They are now open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. We love Seabreeze Cafe and tolerate Aldo’s when we want to be on the harbor but highly recommend Tramonti for a different...More

This is one of the only restaurants I go to when in town. Everything is super fresh. I've tried some pastas, but always my favorite is the pizzas and the salads. I recommend the salad with fennel and roasted hazel nuts...mmmmm. And, the pizza with...More

Had dinner our first night in Santa Cruz here since reviews were good. The place itself was nice and service was good. The good: everyone enjoyed their gelato to end the meal. And I really enjoyed my first affogato (gelato with espresso poured over), so...More

I had the spaghetti and meatballs, the meatballs were tiny and the sauce was lacking in tomatoes and basic seasoning. The soups are fine, but there are much better choices for Italian in Santa Cruz.

We've eaten here many times because it's a favorite local restaurant. Favorites are the eggplant parmesan--it's superb--and the Santa Croce salad-arugula and fresh salad greens, the roasted hazel nuts and which shavings of parmesan make it a delicious treat. The noise level inside the restaurant...More

Always a satisfying place for a great pasta dish. They know how to cook pasta and their sauces are mostly spot on. I eat here when I’m in the Seabright neighborhood - my recent visit the bread was stale and the servers appeared to be...More

Lunch specials are a great deal, but I've also been for dinner many times and never been disappointed. The salad with the grilled veggies is amazing. All the salads are good & super fresh. Pizza is authentic without being a stuffy place with outrageous prices...More

It's inexpensive for nice italian food. It's not fast food so it costs more than pizza by the slice cheap places. We think it's reasonable.
