The pasta puttanesca was a highlight during our California visit and the chicken was excellent. We sat outside in a nice patio like garden and have been served very well.

had the mussels as an appetizer, and the short rib ravioli in cream sauce. All was absolutely delicious. Priced very reasonably for the quality. Wonderful and attentive wait staff. $15 corkage fee was also within reason. Highly recommend.

My Friend and I had Happy Hour here with some nice wines and a great Pizza. They have outdoor dining with a low bar area overlooking the street so you can people watch. The location is great and so is the Service. Go for fun!

Given the tourist nature of Solvang it was a pleasant surprise to find this lovely Italian restaurant. It had the feeling of a place the locals frequent as well as the tourists. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent. The roasted beet salad with arugula and buratta cheese was delicious and the spaghetti Bolognese was perfectly done. I... More

Let"s start with our server, Emily. She was friendly, attentive and an overall delight. Now the food. My wife and I have had the good fortune to travel in Italy. The food was typically quite good. Fresh yet simple ingredients (unlike US restaurants) and excellant service. Never a disappointment. The cuisine at Cecco Ristorante was every bit the equal. We... More

Sara is a fantastic server! She allowed us to sit inside at lunch because we were going to leave as it was too hot for us to sit outside. My husband and I shared the Secco side salad which was perfect and then we shared a pizza. All of the pizzas sounded great and we wanted to try more than... More

So, this restaurant is in a tourist town and the wait staff are clearly unfamiliar with simple etiquette...We were a party of seven willing to just have drinks for fifteen minutes until they opened at 5 pm for dinner and we noticed a couple actually eating in front of us. However four different wait staff came to us in the... More

After hours of walking around shops, we were looking for a place to sit and eat something. We stopped by and ordered Pizza, which was delicious. The outdoor sitting was very nice and we enjoyed our lunch while resting our legs too.
