As we were approaching the end of our visit to Santa Cruz my wife and I were in the mood for a good Italian dinner. We certainly found one at Lago di Como Ristorante last night.
This small, but vibrant spot was well reviewed on TripAdvisor so we had high hopes. We started with the most delicious burrata appetizer. The burrata was the creamiest and most delicious I think that I have ever eaten. It was accompanied by wonderfully ripe tomatoes and prosciutto. It was so good I didn’t want to see it end.
For entrees we ordered the Spaghetti aglio olio e pepperoncino (my wife) while I ordered the Gnocchi with bolognese sauce. My wife’s dish was an aromatic and wonderfully seasoned delight. My gnocchi were small pasta pillows sent down from heaven.
We’re not usually dessert eaters but we shared and thoroughly enjoyed the whipped mascarpone with shaved chocolate topping.
Throughout the meal I kept repeating to my wife how delighted I was with all aspects of this wonderful dinner. If you are in search of dining wonderment try Lago di Como. You can thank me later.
